August 2014 was a special year full of bespoke wedding cake designs and super lovely clients to work with. One of my favourites was the lovely Jill. Jill met me at a wedding event at the Oakley Hall Hotel in Hampshire whwere we are proud to be their recommended wedding cake supplier. Jill really wanted to make a wedding cake for her daughter but needed a fair bit of guidance and trainging.. and that's where our journey together began!.
I worked with Jill throught the process. First teaching her how to cook some lovely sponges (Sharing my recipes and methods). Jill loved it so much that when I next saw her she had a freezer full of cake and a very happy and well fed family :)
We also had lessons together to teach Jill to level and fill her cakes, then ganache and cover in beautifully smooth fondant icing.
For the decoration I taught Jill how to make a number of sugarflowers, including, Roses, Peonies and Hydrangea along with ruffle techniques and cameo designs.
In April this year we had the pleasure of working with the very lovely Bhavisha and Dipesh at their wedding at the Stunning Froyle Park in Hampshire. Set in 80 acres, Froyle Park is one of Hampshire's finest country estates, with a rich history dating back to the early 1600s. Its layout and stunning features make it the perfect venue for your luxury wedding!. During the planning we discussed colours and textures with our couple and designed an opulent style wedding cake with vertical ruffle detail, a brushed gold tier, elegant lace icing and some delicate sugar flowers. What a fantastic wedding day - the venue looked amazing. The suppliers had outshone themselves and transformed Bhavisha anDipesh's dreams into a day they will remember forever.
Here are a few of our favourite shots. Its great to see them enjoying our cake. And look how amazing they both look too!!.
