Wedding Cake 101: Answers to our most frequently asked questions

Don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom,...

A guide to ordering your wedding cake: what to ask and when

I was meant to be posting about chocolate this week, but as we are increasingly being contacted by brides asking for last minute wedding cakes (due to being let down by their baker), I felt there is a great need for a comprehensive guide into ordering your wedding cake.   So, you’ve got the ring, the venue is booked, and now you’re thinking about the...

New flavour alert!

It’s January, it’s cold and it’s wet, all of which were perfect excuses for us to spend some time in the kitchen experimenting with new, alcohol based flavours. We decided to run with the seasons and came up with a Summer inspired Champagne and Strawberry sponge, with champagne infused jam and cream. For Autumn, we created a Salted Caramel and Irish Cream cake, which comprises...

Rise of the 50/50 wedding cakes

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge increase in couples ordering 50/50 wedding cakes. This type of cake allows you to have two designs, usually one conventional side, along with one that is a little more fun! We’ve made several half white fondant/half chocolate fondant cakes, along with many half white/half superhero theme cakes. In 2016 this is expanding even further...

We have a three tier cake for £199 and a four tier option for £249 (both of which work out taller and cheaper...
