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!

Wedding Cakes at Great Fosters, Surrey

This is the beauty that we designed and created for Sharon and Rob for their wedding at Great Fosters in Surrey.

Sharon wanted a showstopper of a cake.. The cake was very important to her and although she wanted it to be big, she also wanted it to be very delicate and beautiful.  Lots of detail, sugar flowers..  Sharon was brave enough to cake for a colour as her base.  Whilst we love a white wedding cake, it is so wonderful when brides opt for a colour – as this really makes the piping ‘pop’ out!

This cake featured layers of chocolate, lemon and vanilla sponge and also included a couple of dummy tiers.

Sharon and Rob were an absolute pleasure to work for and we wish them the very best for their future.
