Wedding Cakes at Orsett Hall Essex

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

Alex and Dean were just scummy 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..



NFL London Cake!

As London is hosting the forthcoming International NFL series in a week or so I thought an apt moment to blog this ‘Denver Broco’s’ wedding cake we designed and created earlier this year.

Lewis is a massive NFL fan, and having been introduced by his dad to the game from a young age there has been no looking back.

Whilst Steph and Lewis enjoyed a very traditional wedding theme, Lewis was allowed to have the say in the design of the cake.  As you can see, a compromise was made with traditional wedding on one side and NFL and the Broncos on the other!

Steph and Lewis were delighted with their cake and it was a pleasure to work for them!
