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!
