Last week was a pretty busy week here, with bookings for a Baptism Cake, a Buzz Lightyear celebration cake and a stunning (if I say so myself!) four tier wedding design for delivery to Stationers Hall in London on Saturday.
As I have said before on the blog, each week brings completely different challenges and I absolutely love the fact that no day or week is ever the same in this business.
We were delighted to be commissioned for the wedding cake of Jill and James, who got married at St. Pauls Cathedral in the heart of the city of London, followed by a reception at Stationers Hall, just across the road from the Cathedral.
As you may have read in my previous posts, I absolutely love history and do feel very privileged that I get to visit so many of beautiful venues across London and the Home Counties.
Stationers Hall is the hall of the old ‘Company of LondonStationers’, incorporated in 1557. History states that until the passing of the Copyright Act of 1842 the Company had the sole right of registering every book, pamphlet and Ballad in the Kingdom. Apparently, to date, the entering of publications at Stationers Hall is still found useful for copyright purposes. See, you learn something new every day!
Jill and James wanted simple, sophisticated, vintage elegance. Nothing too fussy, quite understated, but colours and finishing touches beautifully complimenting eachother.
On visiting us, Jill fell in love with our ‘Piped Peach’ design and wanted to recreate this look, but in her chosen colour pallet. Being that Jill had chosen very ‘vintage’ tones in her fresh floral displays, I advised her to go with fresh flowers on her cake rather than opting for a sugar display.
I spoke to Jill on Sunday and she said they had wonderful day and that everything had gone perfectly to plan. She was gushing about her cake (phew!) and said that it looked and tasting amazing
Here are some images of the cake, plus the Baptism cake made for little Grace and the Buzz Lightyear design made for Jake’s 2ndBirthday.
Lastly, welcome to Nadine, who had just joined our team. Nadine’s first job was making the models for the Buzz cake and I am sure you will agree she did a fantastic job (Buzz doesn’t look at all like Terry Wogan Nadine honest…!)
PS. The beautiful flowers on Saturday were the wonderful work of Rachel Morgan Wedding Flowers (http://www.rachelmorganweddingflowers.co.uk). An absolute pleasure to work with….
