Handpainted Butterfly Wedding Cake

Anna and Daniel planned their wedding with an elegant summer garden theme to fit perfectly with the stunning marquee and surroundings of the venue. The Pobyl-Y Cwm actress selected a design featuring hand painted butterflies and Swarovski crystal pearl detailing to create this beautifully effortless cake. The bottom tier was vanilla with fresh raspberries and a white chocolate ganache, the middle tier a citrus flavoured sponge infused with orange liqueur and the top tier coconut with a lime and coconut liqueur filling.

Vintage Chic Wedding Cake

This cake was inspired by the lace and brooch of the brides dress. The design was elegant and understated to fit perfectly with the vintage chic theme of the day. The hand cut and hand piped lace detailing was accented with an icing bow and vintage crystal brooch.

Tiffany Bride & Groom Wedding Cake

The theme for this cake was "Tiffany Chic with a twist". The couple wanted to achieve a quirky, modern design whilst maintaining some elements of sophistication. The brief called for a monochrome palette with a small hint of pink as the accent colour. Each layer of the cake was hand piped with a dot "faux" ribbon and accented with small handmade ribbon roses in pink. The hand modelled bride and groom were created using photos of the couple and their outfits as a guide in order to achieve a uniquely personal keepsake. The cake was an extravaganza of flavours starting with rich fruit cake for the bottom tier, luscious lemon with lemoncello butter icing for the middle tier and carrot cake with a spiced mascapone filling for the top tier.

Mia's Christening Cake

This pretty pink cake was created with a clean, contemporary feel in mind. Neil and Renee wanted a cake that exuded simple elegance, whilst remaining modern and informal. The sides of this two tier cake were decorated with handmade and hand painted clothing created from icing, whilst a hand-modelled teddy bear adorned the top tier giving the cake its signature "sweet" feel. Neil and Renee selected a classic Victoria sponge filled with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and fresh raspberry compote.

Handbags and Gladrags

These cupcakes were created for a shopaholic's 18th birthday. The birthday girl's family wanted a design that incorporated her love of all things designer - especially shoes and bags! The cupcakes were Belgian chocolate, topped with a swirl of chocolate ganache. Each cupcake was decorated with a handpainted shoe or bag individually handmade from icing.
