  1. I love the natural look of a rustic, semi naked wedding cake. They can be decorated with fresh fruits, flowers or a mix of both and look great when displayed on my sage green crates or a tree stump cake board.

    Last year was the first of many naked and semi naked wedding cakes for me and they are still proving to be very popular for 2017/2018.

    The naked wedding cake is where the sponge is bare and usually decorated with fresh fruit or flowers. The flowers are placed safely on the cake using small plastic tubes so there isn't any direct contact with the sponge itself. Below are a couple of photos of some of my recent naked wedding cake.

    Then next we have the Semi Naked Wedding cake, this is where each tier has a very faint layer of buttercream on the outside. The semi naked cakes tend to be decorated with fresh flowers rather than the fruit. Somrtimes the fruit can leak and would leave the cake looking a little bit messy.

    And last but most certainly not least is the buttercream piped wedding cakes, they have a generous layer of buttercream around each tier which looks as if it is spiraling up the sides of the cake. Usually decorated with fresh flowers as per the following pic's.

    I am very excited to be making more of these creations this coming summer, not long to wait now!

    I hope you like them as much as I enjoy making them.


    More to follow soon.....


  2. I made a lovely 3 tier wedding cake for a couple last weekend. The wedding was in the Roman Baths, the venue was simply stunning!

    Here is the message I received from my customer the following day...I just had to share this with you!

    Louise, who I am now going to call cake legend Louise.
    Just a quick message to let you know I was blown away
    by the cake! I hope you are proud of your work because you couldn’t
    have done any better. You nailed it. I was so taken aback when I saw it
    and although
    I knew it was going to be good I didn’t realise it would be THAT good.
    I just wanted to let you know how perfect it was because it simply was and it tasted amazing
    to boot!!

    3 tier wedding cake
    Bottom and middle tier was fruit cake and top tier lemon with lemon curd filling.
    All sugar flowers hand made by me and pipped detail using royal icing.
    The lace around the bottom of the tiers is made using cake lace. All edible.
    I hope you like it. Lou xxx
