Maria & Gary – Leez Priory – 7th July 2017

Our theme was oriental to match with our Japanese honeymoon, and so our cake had to reflect same. I had found a picture of what i hoped for but a few turned down, until i discovered Nicola, where clearly, no cake was too difficult. She was amazing and what she produced on the day was even more so.

Wedding Cakes at Orsett Hall Essex

This year we have worked with some lovely couples and families.

Alex and Dean were just scrummy to work for and it was an absolute honour to design and create their wedding cake for them, for their celebrations at Orsett Hall at the end of August.

From the minute this family arrived to see us at the studio, I was just busting to work for them! So gracious and warm and possibly the best behaved children we have ever had in the studio (we have had a few little pickles over the years!)

Alex and Dean wanted a very grand cake. I say grand, but not in an ostentatious way, but in height and beautiful detail.  Their cake was adorned with over 240 sugar roses all in soft pinks and creams.  Alex and Dean, did not need their cake to feed hundreds, so they did have a couple of dummy tiers included – as you can see, nobody can tell which tiers they are..

I am told their cake was thoroughly enjoyed and we received a beautiful thank you from Alex…Thank you so much . We had the best day honestly , and that CAKE was amazing .!! Everyone didn’t stop talking about it . And was lovely that everyone got to have a slice , just gutted we didn’t get more as it’s all gone now…

I sincerely hope to work on another wedding with Chris in the future.  Not only for his beautiful imagery, but, what a nice bloke!  I have never met Chris before and constantly being on the scrounge for photos can (understandably) get on photographers nerves.  Not Chris! Friendly, accommodating and just proper down to earth!  Thanks Chris!

Peter Rabbit Cake

We loved making this cutesy little Peter Rabbit Cake for Robyn’s baby shower last month!

Robyn only wanted little Peter, surrounded by lots and lots of carrots and of course themed in the beautiful Beatrix Potter colours and style.

This cake would be suitable for a 1st birthday or christening..
