Gorgeous health/wellbeing offers from lovely people we work with

OK, so this blog is primarily about cake, but today is a little different. I work with some fabulous people who offer some amazing services and, as someone who pushes cake on people on a daily basis, I feel it’s only right for me to pass these on in case any of you are lying on your sofa in a cake-induced coma, cursing the day...

Something old, something new: Cakes, flowers and photography at The Venue, Royal Liver Building

It’s an iconic North West landmark and a beautiful building, so you can imagine how excited we were when we discovered that, not only did the building now contain “The Venue”, a bespoke wedding and celebration space, but we were able to go in for a photoshoot!...

What to ask your baker when ordering a cake with special dietary requirements

A couple of years ago, I was beginning to lose count of the number of brides and grooms who came to see us to book a wedding cake, only for one to pipe up “I can’t have any cake myself, I have a food intolerance”. Fortunately, the number of bakers willing/able to cater for those with diabetes, crohns disease etc has increased dramatically over the...

Drippy drippy cakes!

Drippy drippy cakes!

This week I finally caved and made an Instagram favourite: the drippy cake! Whilst these are very popular in Australia right now, I hadn’t seen many over here that have embraced the use of vibrant colours (primarily because most brighter shades are banned by the EU, but that’s another rant for another day). The great thing about these cakes is that they can either be...

What’s the deal with gender reveal cakes?

A couple of weeks ago now we were asked to make a gender reveal cake for a couple expecting a little one later this year. As a cake blog addict myself, I was aware of these cakes and their huge popularity in the States, but haven’t heard of many being ordered on this side of the pond. So how do they work? Well, there are...

Geek Week!

We have had one hell of a fun week when it comes to our wedding cakes, with plenty of cartoon graphics, Star Wars, even a bit of Peppa Pig! This got me thinking about all the fun, comic themed cakes we have done over the last few years. Back when we opened in 2011, we would have the odd couple come in asking for a...

A sneak peek at our new cake studio

It has been a crazy few weeks here, hence the delay in posting my blogs recently, as we have been redecorating the studio and other parts of the shop that our customers don’t generally get to see. When we moved into the new premises last July we were in the midst of wedding season, so we focused on getting the place up to 5 star...

Thinking outside of the (cake) box: Unusual wedding cakes

If there’s one thing we get asked over and over again, it’s “how can we make our cake a bit different?” With a plethora of elegant white cakes and classic florals filling the windows of every cake shop in town, many couples feel a little apprehensive about asking for something different from the norm. The primary concern amongst many couples is that they don’t want...
