Beautiful Silver Leaf Wedding Cake at Great John Street Hotel, Manchester

One of our favourite wedding cake designs this year was for Sadie and David who got married last Saturday at the fabulous Great John Street Hotel in Manchester.


From their consultation, Sadie and David knew they had a silver, grey and pink colour scheme so I sent them some ideas of what could be done and they were over the moon!



The bottom tier was covered in edible silver leaf with a pretty stencilled pattern on the second tier down. The cake was then dressed with fresh flowers and placed as part of the entrance display up on the roof terrace at GJS Hotel, stood on one of our white milk glass cake stands. The terrace area is fabulous and definitely worth a look if you're considering hiring somewhere for a wedding or event.
 
My dodgy photography skills don't do this cake justice and I can't wait to see some professional photos but for now, you get the idea!
 
Congratulations David & Sadie!! xx

Circus Christening Cake!

Last weekend we delivered the cutest Christening Cake for the gorgeous little Noah!
 
Noah's Mum & Dad wanted a Circus theme to the cake with one clear instruction, NO CLOWNS!
 
Agreed.


So we decided on a circus tent top tier with a classic red and white stripe and cute sugar animals poking their heads out of the curtains.
 
The bottom tier had large blue triangles complete with bright yellow stars, all in-keeping with the circus theme with a pretty name plaque on the front.

 
The whole cake was sat on a cake board which we also covered in a red and white stripe effect and were really happy with the result!


Travel-themed Wedding Cake at Armathwaite Hall

A couple of weeks ago we drove very cautiously up to the North Lake District to deliver a cake for the lovely Leanne and Andrew who got married at Armathwaite Hall.



The venue is beautiful and the scenery just stunning, unfortunately the drive up involved a lot of rain and early-morning mist but luckily, by the time the wedding was due to start, the sun had started to break through!
 
Leanne and Andrew wanted a travel-themed wedding cake based upon a suitcase and luggage design complete with luggage tags and personalised hand-made Bride & Groom toppers.


 
Three tiers of cake, one hand carved in the shape of a handbag and the addition of one artificial tier in the form of a free-standing suitcase to one side. The wedding colour was Cadbury's purple, a very popular trend for 2014 so all of the details were picked out in purple and lilac tones.
 
This cake was HEAVY but it went down a treat and was a real talking point between the guests, Leanne & Andrew loved it, saying it was even better than they could've hoped for!!
 
Congratulations to Leanne & Andrew, one of the loveliest couples I've dealt with yet!

Simply Chocoholic Cake!

 
Last week we posted a photo of a Birthday cake for a 17 year old who had been told he was too old for birthday cake (does not compute!!))
 
We created him a simple yet great looking 6" birthday cake which was three layers of sponge and cost £35, this was the start of our Simply Celebration range., freshly baked cakes made from quality ingredients which look great and can be personalised.
 
This week, we've added an extremely chocolatey creation to the Simply Celebration range, again three layers of sponge sandwiched and covered with buttercream. This design then has Cadbury's Chocolate Flakes all round the edge and is topped with a selection of chocolates including Giant Buttons, M&M's and more flakes.
 
6" size cakes start at £35.
 
 


This birthday cake was made for Ian who wanted to take something with a bit more of a wow factor into his office than the usual supermarket cakes that you usually get, he certainly looks pleased with it!!
