Jimmy Choo Shoe Box Cake

We were asked to create this one by Christine Carle – mum of Danielle.  We made Danielle and Nick’s wedding cake last December so it was such a pleasure to make another cake for Danielle.

This was a birthday surprise from mum as she wanted Danielle to have something really special  – given that she wasn’t going to be able to have much of a celebration due to the lockdown.

The shoe is actually one of Danielle’s wedding shoes so it was even more special.  The cake is obviously the box and everything else you see is made from Icing so its all edible.

Danielle absolutely love her cake and sent us a lovely thank you.

Our Beautiful Sugar Flowers

One of the many things we pride our selves on when making your cake is beauty coupled with personalisation. Your cake should be a reflection of you. When planning your wedding one of the major elements is flowers, the flowers you choose for your wedding, whether it’s ornate table centre pieces, subtle petals scatter down the aisle, or your own beautiful bouquet, you choose them to reflect who you are and what you like.

That is why if you choose to put flowers on your cake we match them in sugar to the same specification as your real ones! But do you do what’s even better? The sugar ones keep forever! So you can put them is a beautiful glass case or cloche and admire them for years to come.

Here at Hall of Cakes we love making sugar flowers, and it’s important to us that they take your breath away. We work with your florist to ensure we match your cake flowers with your wedding flowers, whether it’s a foliage such as eucalyptus or rose leaves, to huge blooms such as o’hara or garden roses, we can tailor make them to sit perfectly in your flower and colour scheme.

We often get asked “how to do do it?!” Well now we can share with you! The lovely Claire at Claire St Quinton’s School of Cake has put together some online lessons of how to make sugar flowers. If you want to see how we professional’s do it and have a go your self then pop over to her page and take a look!

Amie Bone Fantasia (72) small

Fantasia at Four Seasons Park Lane

At the beginning of March before the world madness began we were so honoured to have been a part of the most incredible event – Fantasia by Amie Bone Flowers.  If you haven’t already heard of Amie, well take a moment to pop over to her instagram or her website.  The most incredible luxury installations you will ever see in floristry.  Literally jaw dropping.

Amie was commissioned to take over the Four Seasons in Park Lane for the most epic 3 day floral masterclass.   Delegates came from all over the UK to work with Amie and her team to create the most unbelievable floral exlosion.  The event space was totally transformed – 4 seasons at The Four Seasons.  It was utterly incredible.  There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe this event.  I think I will just show you some of the pictures!

Amie commissioned us to make ‘the most incredible cake you’ve ever made in your life’, ‘oh and it needs to be pink – very pink”, ‘and fucking amazing’ (verbatum!).  We started making roses and leaves and blossoms just after Christmas and over an 8 week period over a thousand roses were made.  Over 1,500 leaves –  and we lost count of how many blossoms.

I could ramble on for ever over the creation of this masterpiece but, I think the images speak for themselves.  Will let you decide.
