Wedding Cakes – On Hold

Well, what a week or two it has been for all of us.  Despite seeing this horrible virus spread across other countries, before finally reaching us here in the UK, I’m not sure we all appreciated quite how disrupted our whole lives would be.  For me, it was when my 14 year old daughter’s school suddenly shut last Tuesday and we found ourselves a family of 3 all working from the dining room table.  I had a little wobble, I’m not afraid to admit it, driving back from her school a few days later after she had collected all of her books and realising just how different our routine was about to become.

At this point, I had also been dealing with upset and confused couples, concerned about whether their wedding would be going ahead and some, having made the difficult decision to postpone, trying to ensure all of their chosen suppliers had availability for their new date.   I was determined to make this as easy as possible for my couples and accommodated the new dates as seamlessly as possible.  At the moment there has only been one lovely couple I haven’t been able to fit in and despite the feeling of letting them down, they were amazing, making me even more upset that I couldn’t now make their wedding cake.

To all my fantastic supplier friends, thank you for your support.  From lovely evening chats to fellow industry professionals over Skype (and wine!) to fellow cake makers being there at the end of Messenger, working through our issues and even offering to deliver some eggs if needed, thank you! 

To all my lovely couples, thank you for being so calm and quite frankly, fabulous, in the face all of this.  Your day will come, it will be utterly beautiful and you will get married.  Oh, and JellyCake will be there with your lovely cake too!

To all the absolutely amazing front-line workers who are keeping this nation going whilst we all stay at home, the biggest of all thank you’s.

Although I am not making wedding cakes for the next few months, I am still open for enquiries and will be busy preparing new designs, working on my skills and looking forward to the days after the virus.

Stay inside, keep well and I look forward to seeing you soon. I will be keeping up the cake prettiness by posting pictures of recent shoots and new designs over on Instagram.

Real Wedding at Coombe Lodge

It is always so lovely when I receive beautiful pictures of my cakes from the professional photographers at the wedding.

Alex and Will married at the stunning Coombe Lodge at Blagdon a beautiful countryside venue close to Bristol. They chose an elegant all white wedding cake to match their wedding theme, style and flowers.

With lots of flowery sugar ruffles on the base tier and a cascade of white sugar orchids up and across the front of the cake finishing high above the top tier. The cake looked stunning sitting in the huge bay window.

The glorious cake setting.

Sitting sneakily around the back of the cake was the couples monogram and wedding date, which was hand painted in silver lustre.

A feathery Cotswold Wedding – Tracey and Robin’s swan themed wedding

Easter Saturday saw us taking a lovely trip to Stonehouse Court in the Cotswolds to deliver Tracey and Robin’s wedding cake.

Swans and White Feathers Cotswold Wedding

The wedding theme was swans, with each of the tables named after a breed of swan.  The table centres were beautiful balls of gorgeous white feathers.  Tracey and Robin met me at Westonbirt School Wedding Show, while searching for suppliers for their Cotswold wedding, and were taken by my Peach Watercolour wedding cake with its feathery base tier.  We met for a consultation where we designed their cake to include the feathers, sugar roses, spray roses, freesia, and eucalyptus to match the wedding florals and two hand modelled sugar swan toppers.  I also made a few swan biscuit favours for the Bride and Groom and the children.

Stonehouse Court

It was my first delivery to Stonehouse Court and what a gorgeous venue it is.  I had some time to have a wander around the main house, which dates from the 17th Century as well as the very pretty grounds.  A lovely wedding venue and very helpful staff too!

Many congratulations to the lovely Tracey and Robin.  The cake was a great hit with the happy couple, thank you Tracey for such a lovely email:  “Just a note to say thank you ever so much for the fabulous cake you made for us.  Everyone was so impressed by your masterpiece – we really didn’t want to cut it!!  The swans we have kept intact – they were a work of art in themselves.  If anyone asks you for a recommendation look no further than us!  We should be happy to tell them what a beautiful cake you made for us and what an excellent service you provide. Thanks again Trudy – we had a lovely day made much sweeter by your fabulous cake.”


A sunny wedding weekend in the Cotswolds and Wiltshire

Wow, what a beautiful sunny Spring day 8th April 2017 was to get married!  The first busy wedding cake weekend of 2017 was a gorgeous one.  With wall to wall sunshine and two quite similar cakes but 2 very different venues.

 Winkworth Farm in the Cotswolds

Sarah and Jay chose the always lovely Winkworth Farm on the edge of the Cotswolds for their April wedding.  Winkworth is one of my absolute favourite venues.  From the lovely owners to the gorgeous setting and amazing barn.  I am very grateful to be one of their recommended suppliers.  One of the many things I love are the beautiful gardens where you can marry outside in the very pretty roundhouse and sunken garden.  The barn also has the luxury of a separate ceremony area as well as the main reception barn.  So rain or shine you have a very pretty place to wed.

Sarah’s dress played a major part of the decoration on the cake with a swag of sugar lace and piped brush embroidery, which matched the lace detail around the base and over her dress.  Jay didn’t get left out though as I made a sugar model of his TVR with the happy couple in their wedding attire sitting inside!

 The splendid grounds of Marlborough College

Lesley and Mike’s wedding took place in the very grand surroundings of Marlborough College.  As a member of staff Mike is afforded the opportunity to marry in the school’s church.  Their reception was held in a beautiful marquee on the green in front of the school. 

Marlborough College Wedding

The marquee was full of beautiful lilac, pink and white flowers arranged by the fabulous Robins Flowers.  The amazing ladies from Love to Plan were ensuring the smooth running of the day.  It was lovely to hear from them during the evening to say the cake went down very well!

 Marlborough College Wedding

Their cake was based on a previous design of mine, but included additional touches which Lesley requested.  Each tier was painted with a subtle white satin shimmer with pieces of white sugar lace secured over the tops and sides of each cake.  The whole cake was raised slightly to allow the scalloped sugar lace to drape below the base tier.  Decorating the cake were sugar roses in lilac and pale pink to match the wedding flowers.  Lesley also asked me to create a pretty birthday cake for her niece who was celebrating her 6th birthday by being a bridesmaid!

Shimmer Lace Wedding Cake

Best wishes to both the happy couples!


Once Upon a Time for a Cotswold Wedding

JellyCake had the pleasure of being involved in a fabulous photoshoot at the very beautiful Thornbury Castle on the edge of the Cotswolds, within easy reach of the M4/M5 and Bristol.  With the venue being a romantic castle the theme for the day was Once Upon a Time with an opulent but ethereal and mystical feel.

Thornbury Castle dates back to 1511 when it was built as an early example of a Tudor country house with elegant medieval influences.  King Henry VIII stayed at the castle with his wife Anne Boleyn and although it is now a 27 room luxurious hotel, it still retains its historic character with stunning rooms, bedchambers and beautiful gardens.  The hotel can accommodate small and large weddings with up to 120 evening guests in the Tudor Great Hall.

The lovely bride wore four different dresses, each one reflecting the romance of the story, along with a gorgeous crown and dreamy wedding bouquet created by Tinker Jo.

The beautiful stationery and luxuriously decorated Great Hall.

A Spring Marquee Wedding

The 2016 wedding season has started in earnest and I have already created cakes for some lovely couples.  The first weekend in April was absolutely glorious and I had the pleasure of making a macaron tower for the wedding of Emily and Rob.  Their wedding was held at Liddington Warren Farm in an amazing marquee, supplied by the company that Rob runs, Marquee Vision.  It was dressed with white sofas, beautiful table settings with flowers by Julia at Robins Flowers and topped off with the most wonderful views over the Wiltshire countryside.

The macarons were designed to coordinate with the pastel wedding colour scheme of ivory, cream, grey, green and pink.  The flavours were matched to the colours and included; white chocolate, salted caramel, blueberry, mint chocolate and strawberry.

2015 Review

With 2016 well and truly underway, I took a moment to look back at the cakes I was asked to create in 2015 and decided to pick a few of my favourite cakes.  This is never an easy task, and with my love of all things pastel and floral, there is a distinct theme running here!

2015 End of year collage

I had great fun creating Amy and Ben’s cake.  Amy was brilliant to work with and the whole cake, despite being based on one of my most popular designs, took on such a personal touch with heart shaped bunting and colours from their pretty invitations.  With the cake all set up at the lovely Winkworth Farm in the Cotswolds, it matched the decorations, table settings and flowers perfectly.

The next 3 cakes were quite simple in their designs but finished off beautifully with fresh flowers.   Jessica’s cake had 2 tiers that I filled with beautiful pink and white avalanche roses and gypsophila with the cake in the beautiful setting of a marquee in her parent’s back garden.  Charlotte and Richard, who married at Wellington Barn, had their florist create a pretty dome of gypsophila for the top of their cake and Charlie and Tobias, married at the glorious Farnham Castle, had a pretty trailing topper of roses and ivy along with a flower filled tier.

Lucy and Ryan’s wedding at Winkworth Farm, had a gorgeously pretty, rustic theme with the cake coloured the palest of creamy yellow to match the bridesmaid’s dresses.  The white tiers were decorated with sugar lace and the large white sugar roses matched the bridal bouquet.

When I was asked to create a Baby Shower cake for one of my 2014 brides, my answer was immediately yes!  Helen and Firhan’s wedding cake holds the record as the biggest cake I have ever made (9 tiers!) and there was a little hint back to the wedding with the cake sitting on gold legs.  Emma and Lee’s cake was pretty in lilac with a 3 tier cake as well as 90 cupcakes for their Bowood House wedding.  I love naked cakes and Jessica and Ryan’s was my first all chocolate one with pretty fresh flowers all set up in the pretty marquee at The Moonrakers in Bradford-on-Avon.   Roseanne and Nathan chose a sugar lace covered cake with dusky pink roses to match their pretty wedding held at Cricklade Country Club.  They also ordered towers of cupcakes for the children and iced biscuits for the wedding favours.  The final cake was Mark and Michelle’s for their Bowood House wedding.  Michelle fell in love with my Shimmer and Lace display cake, which I replicated in a lighter ivory to match their wedding scheme.

With lots of lovely cake designs ready to be created in 2016 I can’t wait to get started!


My favourites from 2014

With February already fast approaching, I thought I would take a look back at some of the lovely cakes I was privileged to have been asked to make during 2014.

These are just some of my favourites.  Pretty lace and hydrangeas for Sophia and Raffaele at the gorgeous Winkworth Farm in Wiltshire.  Charlotte chose beautiful bright blooms for her late autumn wedding in Romsey, which we replicated in sugar for her cake.  Beautiful raspberry was Lauren’s theme for her wedding which we used in the ombre ruffles and blossom ball, finished with a striking edible gold tier, all delivered on a sunny November Saturday to the Kings Arms in Christchurch.

Jenny and Robin chose a pretty pink and peach theme for their wedding and we created a large display of cupcakes, mini cakes, biscuits and meringues on their stunning dressing table in the hallway at Old Down Manor, Bristol.  Chris and Cathy’s wedding was bold and bright with colours of the Caribbean to reflect Cathy’s heritage.  Orange, red and gold made for a striking wedding cake in the beautifully decorated Wick Farm Barn near Marlborough.

Naked cakes are so very popular, and this pretty cake was topped with a handmade sugar campervan made to match Sarah’s wonderful camper wedding decorations.  With roses one of my favourite flowers to make I loved the dusky pink cascade of sugar roses for Claire and Phil’s Wellington Barn wedding.  Helen and Firhan’s wedding, in a beautiful marquee in the grounds of The Wardrobe, Salisbury in Wiltshire, was where we delivered their stunning 9 tier cake.  Created for them in shades of pink with lots of gold highlights and over 600 flowers filling the tiers.  Gary and Miriam chose gorgeous spring flowers in pale pink and ivory, which we replicated in sugar; peonies, roses, spray roses and freesia.  Finally, Eleanor’s cake was stacked with layers of sugar roses and blossoms in between each tier and looked gorgeous at their stunning venue, Westonbirt School, near Tetbury.

This year has also seen us travel far and wide, with cake deliveries to The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge, the stunning Craig Y Nos Castle in the Brecon Beacons, The Kings Arms in Christchurch and the very pretty Birtsmorton Court in Malvern.  I am very proud to be the recommended cake supplier at several lovely venues local to Wiltshire; Bowood House, Winkworth Farm, Wellington Barn and Stanton Manor are just a few of the venues I am lucky to deliver to throughout the year.

With the summer months of 2015 already almost fully booked, this year is looking to be equally exciting with lot of gorgeous cakes and stunning venues to deliver to!
