A wedding cake is the centrepiece of any wedding or Civil Ceremony celebration.
If you have a special request, a theme or colour scheme to use as a starting point for a design; give me a call or email and I'll be pleased to see how I could help. I provide a written quote for all wedding cakes, and can offer useful advice regarding the size of cake you'd need to feed your wedding guests, the possibilities for decoration and the price.
Many couples choose the traditional option of rich fruit cake for all tiers, but there is no reason why the upper tiers couldn't be a lighter sponge cake, or a rich chocolate cake.
Handcrafted edible sugarpaste toppers are becoming an increasingly popular way to personalise your cake....see the 'Cake Toppers' section for details. This can add a quirky touch to reflect the hobbies, careers or interests of the happy couple.
A delivery and set up service is available to take the stress out of your special day, or you can choose to collect beforehand.
Here are a few photos of some wedding cakes I have created......
Kim and Liam, Dronfield
This cake was created to match Kim's bridal bouquet, a simply beautiful bunch of ivory roses. It was the centrepiece of a traditional English tea party, with bunting, floral china teacups and sunshine. The cake consisted of a rich fruit base tier (10"), a victoria sandwich middle tier (8") and a chocolate sponge top tier (6"). With satin ribbons, strings of pearls and sugar roses, it was truly elegant.
"My wedding cake was most beautiful cake I have ever seen."
Francesca and Wayne, Chesterfield
For her wedding cake, Fran wanted a stack of books in pastel colours with classic romantic titles, and at the bottom of the stack, a book all about Sheffield Wednesday (which she said was her fiance's real true love!). Tied up with ivory satin ribbon and topped with a beautiful orchid to match her bridal bouquet.
"I just wanted to say thanks again for our amazing cake. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted gorgeous too. We ate loads at the wedding and still had tons left. We froze some and have been defrosting it a bit a time (it still tastes fantastic). It was a truly perfect day - thanks for making us a perfect cake."
Tammy and James, Scunthorpe
Tammy wanted her wedding cake to be a birthday cake for her mum, as she had sadly passed away, but would have wanted to be a part of Tammy's special day, which was on her birthday. The cake was a rich fruit cake base tier, topped with a chocolate sponge top tier, and decorated to look like a couple of birthday presents wrapped up in ribbon with a gift tag. The colours were chosen to coordinate with the bridesmaids' dresses and the bridal bouquet.
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the cake you did for my mum on our wedding day. Everyone said it was delicious and I was so thrilled with it. It was definitely yummy! You did an amazing job and it made my day :) Perfect cake for a perfect day. I will definitely be a returning customer! "
Ian and Zoe, Barnsley
Zoe wanted her two tier fruit and sponge cake to be adorned with contemporary midnight blue glittered heart cut outs, satin ribbons and topped with a handmade personalised sugarpaste topper....that told a story. Ian and Zoe had saved up...enough for either fitted bedroom wardrobes or a wedding. As they chose to get married, I was asked to incorporate a wardrobe in the cake topper! The figures were made under careful observation pictures of their wedding outfits (including Zoe's luxurious silver gown), hairstyles and colours, and photos of themselves.
"Thank you very much for our Wedding Cake. It was wonderful and everyone loved it. They figures made us cry, they are fantastic. If you need any recommendations, please give us a shout. I hope you don't mind but we gave your details to several people who have weddings in the next year. Could I please book a cake/cupcakes in for our first anniversary party?"
Anthony and Anita, Sussex
Anita wanted to incorporate models of Henry and Hetty (adorned with their own names instead), together with this season's fashionable accessory; a crystal brooch. This design brought these elements together, continuing the black and white theme of the day. Featuring handmade sugarpaste toppers, a burst of sugarpaste hearts and Swarovski crystals on wires as a backdrop, black satin ribbons, and a beautiful diamante brooch and trim.
"Thanks again for our wedding cake; I loved it, it was perfect and just what I had imagined. We had a wonderful day and all the guests commented on how beautiful the cake looked, and what a great cake topper! Also, the fruit cake itself is lovely. I passed on your website details to a few of our guests. "
