Baby Shower Cakes! London, Kent, Essex …

We are doing sooooo many baby shower cakes at the moment!

I knew that baby showers had become more popular but this summer they have gone totally crazy!  It seems that every mama to be is celebrating the forthcoming birth with a little soiree with friends and family – or actually quite a big soiree in some cases!

These are just some of the baby shower cakes we have done recently.  Obviously, all of these cakes can be adapted to a 1st birthday cake or christening cake…

If you are interested in booking, please fill in the contact form and we will get back to you right away.  If you can include your predicted numbers then we can determine how big your cake needs to be.

A Wedding at The Ritz, Mayfair, London

Back in April we delivered one of our beautiful cakes to The Ritz hotel in London.  We have worked for the The Ritz for many years now and delivered many many cakes, but this one was a real treat.  Why?  When we entered the Marie Antoinette Suite the smell that hit us from the most amazing installation of flowers was just incredible!

Of course, we have worked on many weddings and events that have been jam packed with flowers, but the colours and the smells  – and so many flowers in a relatively intimate space really was incredible.  Full praise indeed to the very talented Paul Thomas Flowers

So, enough about the flowers… The wedding cake comprised of a full deep tier of blush pink sugar roses (123 to be precise!) tiers of lemon sponge – filled with zesty lemon buttercream, and  rich chocolate cake filled with cocoa buttercream.  Whilst the base of the cake and the topper were obviously very detailed, the bride wanted to keep the rest of the cake very plain and just incorporate the couples initials that had been designed for them for their wedding stationery.

I am sure you will agree the whole set up looked very beautiful.

People always ask me if working at The Ritz really is as special as it sounds.  Answer: Yes.  Why?  Well, when you work in events, you do not only see the finished ensemble of beautiful flowers and cakes and tables settings.. But, you see all that goes on at the back end.  How easy is it to deliver and are the staff helpful?  I can honestly say that the Events Team at The Ritz make the whole process very easy indeed.  The absolute highest standard in event planning and co-ordination

Wedding Cakes at Chilston Park, Kent

We are delighted to showcase the wedding of Victoria & Nick, who married at the beautiful Chilston Park in Kent on 10th March this year.

This was a really special one for us as Victoria’s parents are neighbours to us and we know Richard, father of the bride, very well indeed.  Richard wanted his daughter’s cake to be very special indeed.  He had come to the right place!

Victoria was very keen on a floral cascade and her chosen colour scheme was lilac and vintage pink.  I have to be honest in saying that I was a little unsure at first of how the lilac would work with the pink but.. wow!  We loved it.  The colours worked beautifully together.  Such a soft colour palette and against the champagne backdrop of the main cake it was really lovely!

We received a lovely thank you from Victoria and Nick and we were so pleased they were delighted with their wedding cake.

Thank you so much to David Fenwick Photography for sharing your images!
