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!!

Butterfly Wedding Cake

A few weeks ago I delivered a beautiful cake to the Astley Bank Hotel in Lancashire for the wedding of Leonie & Paul who I'd met there a year earlier at a wedding fayre,
 
Leonie & Paul had chosen a lovely pearlescent blue and white colour scheme which they used in their wedding stationery.
 
We used this as the basis for their wedding cake design and decided upon a three-tiered cake, covered in white sugarpaste with blue satin ribbon round the base of each tier.
 
Leonie wanted a cascade of edible butterflies in a big sweep down the front of the cake and we decided an ombre effect going from light to dark blue would look perfect!
 
 
I then added some piped details up the sides of the butterfly cascade to finish the cake off.
 
Leonie contacted me a week after the wedding thanking me for the cake which was three different flavours including Rich Brandy Fruit Cake, Chocolate Truffle & Luscious Lemon, she said it couldn't have been more perfect!

Naked Wedding Cake with Gorgeous Fresh Flowers

Last week I delivered a three-tiered Naked Cake to the beautiful Alderley Edge Hotel for a lovely wedding.
 
The couple had chosen some stunning elements to decorate their venue including burlap table runners, beautifully delicate hydrangeas and big pinky-peach roses!
 
The Naked cake was perfect and the couple chose three different flavours, Carrot, Lemon & Victoria sponge for their guests to enjoy.
 
As the Bride chose to use silk flowers for her bouquet and table decorations, I went to the very talented Victoria at Lancashire Floristry to discuss which flowers to order. Victoria is a font of knowledge when it comes to flowers and really took the time to understand the brief before showing me pictures of flowers that were available.
 
I trust Victoria completely when it comes to flowers and she didn't disappoint, the flowers looked beautiful on the three tiered cake and fit in perfectly with the silk flowers adorning the tables.
 
A beautiful cake for a beautiful wedding!

Good Looking & Great Tasting Celebration Cakes!

For about 18 months now we've been talking to Brides & Grooms about our Simply Antoinette wedding cake range, simple and elegant designs that don't cost the Earth! The range has been a great success and we add to it each season so we though about coming up with some Simply Celebration cake designs for other special occasions where a factory made supermarket cake just isn't quite special enough!!
 
 
Last week a friend of mine needed a birthday cake for her daughter's boyfriend who was celebrating his 17th Birthday. The cake was a 6" cake, three layers of chocolate sponge sandwiched with chocolate buttercream before being covered in sugarpaste.
 
It was then decorated in a simple design using a personalised message on the top, coloured sugarpaste balls round the base and a number 17 plaque on the front, complete with small hand-piped pearls round the edge.
 
Of course, designs can be tailored with regards to colours, messages, flavours and size. We're going to develop the range by adding some alternative designs for different occasions and recipients so watch this space........
 
Prices start at £35.
