We absolutely loved making this cake for Jenson’s 1st Birthday! We made mum and dad’s wedding cake 2 years ago so it was such a pleasure to be asked to make a cake for Johanna and Denis’s first child.
The bottom tier is 2 stacked chocolate cakes both filling with cocoa buttercream and the top tier is a vanilla sponge with vanilla bean buttercream and raspberry jam
This cake is priced at £325 and caters for 60 portions.
From start to finish our dealings with Nicola was seamless and very professional. Our cake was everything we wanted and more.Highly recommended. Thank you!! Lots of love from the new Mr and Mrs Emin x
As this week is a little quieter than usual it gives us some time to showcase some of the wedding cakes we worked on last year.
The first one we would love to blog is that of Grant and Nats who married at Gosfield Hall in Essex on 3rd November.
Grant and Nats were just a dream to work for. Grant was my main contact point (and I actually really missed him after the wedding!). They booked us 18 months in advance and whilst obviously we didn’t need to speak regularly for all of this time, nearer to the wedding we did chat quite a few times (don’t you just indecisive people.. tee hee… :) Grant wanted Nats to have the cake of her dreams as he just LOVES this girl!
Navy was the favoured theme colour for the cake from the beginning. The base tier of this cake is actually a dummy as I explained to Grant that people just don’t really like to each blue food.. So, we replaced this tier with a cutting tier iced in white..
Polka dots and big blousey flowers were also a must and eventually I persuaded them to include an initial plaque as we knew this would finish to cake beautifully.
We received the most lovely testimonial from the couple, which I have included below. These worlds brought a tear to my eye. This couple were so appreciative of the work that went into their cake and the extra detail we included. Receiving feedback like this is just pure gold xxx
Nicola at Hall of Cakes is an absolute GENIUS!
And such a lovely lady… Nicola designed and made a stunning Wedding cake for our special day in November, which looked amazing. Every single one of our guests commented on how lovely our cake looked, AND tasted!
Nicola was so helpful right from our first meeting with her, where she put us at ease with her professional and friendly approach, and helped us narrow down designs and ideas. What I loved about Nicola was her honesty… like must couples we turned to Google images to find examples for our cake! She always came back to us quickly and with honest opinions on what was ‘real’ and do-able in terms of design and food colouring.
I can not recommend Nicola & Hall of Cakes enough… if you are readying this review, book with them! You will not be disappointed.
