White (Chocolate) Wedding

Another cake which was inspired by one of my wedding cake dummies, and a variation on the original design.  The original was made from chocolate fondant, and I’d wanted to make a version in modelling chocolate.  The couple in question wanted a white chocolate version, so this time I used white modelling chocolate, and added 

“Alternative” Black & Red Wedding

The couple who ordered this cake had seen my gothic wedding cake dummies on my site, liked what they saw, and thought, after approaching other cake makers with no luck, that I may be on their wavelength when it came to designing and delivering a wedding cake with an “alternative” look, but not quite so 

Lilies & Roses Wedding

Another wedding cake for a friend, and it needed to be delivered to Ipswich area, luckily we were invited guests too!  Transported in two sections with extra flowers and finally assembled at the venue.  Also because of the numbers expected due to the fact it was to be served immediately after the church service rather than at 

Super Wedding

I love an unusual design, particularly if it comes with a story, even if only a short one.  This was a wedding cake for a couple who wanted very different things in the design of their cake.  One was a superhero fan and wanted a themed cake, the other partner wanted something very traditional.  Doing 

Gothic Wedding

Another of the set of three dummies for a wedding fayre.  A few ideas which had been hanging about in my head for a while, particularly the bottom tier with the “victorian lamp-post” design on the bottom.  Some demonstration of piping work, some stencilling, more practice in making roses and the first use of a 

Neopolitan

Another dummy wedding cake for a wedding fayre  – I had just worked on a couple of “alternative”, gothic, dark, style dummy cakes, so wanted something to contrast and show I can do a variety of styles.  I was going for a pastel, almost vintage look, something “sweet” with a cupcake on top, and its 

Black & Red & Roses

A dummy cake which I made for a wedding fayre – works well as a small wedding cake, or an extravagant birthday cake.  In all there are around 20 roses on this one, the cake sizes are 10″ shallow bottom tier and a tall 6″ top tier.  The pattern on the sides is a product 

Happy Honeymoon

This is the first time I’ve ever been asked to make a “honeymoon” cake!  The wedding was due to take place on one day, with a honeymoon going away party on another night – I didn’t make the wedding cake, but I was asked to make a special cake to wish the newlyweds well as 

Golden Wedding

An order for a couple’s golden wedding anniversary, in the shape of an open book.  A pretty, straightforward design but still with the opportunity to be artistic.  This was hand-carved, and one side was traditional rich fruit cake with marzipan, and the other was vanilla sponge, all covered with sugarpaste as one cake.
