Wedding high season is traditionally throughout the summer months and whilst it is true to say that our work moves up a gear during this time of year, our couples are choosing to tie the knot at other times in the year. Designs are very much a personal thing but we thought we would include a word or two about current trends.
While naked wedding cakes and all-white tiers never go out of fashion, you may want to incorporate one or two of these 2019 wedding cake trends to lend a modern twist. Deconstructed layers are making a come-back thanks to Harry and Meghan who chose to display their cakes individually rather than a stacked creation. Tall and multi-level cakes – if you want to update the look of your wedding cake, opt for elongated tiers. The textured buttercream look really lends itself to a rustic luxe wedding style. Copper effects – not all that glitters is gold! Copper really is the metallic of the moment, so try working some into your design. Naked cake designs are getting a bit more adventurous with the addition of drips, interesting toppers, multiple cake flavours and different colours. Geometric designs – triangles and hexagons are a bit more interesting than squares and circles. Ruffles – try pairing one tier of vertical ruffles with a simple, sleek second and third tier so that the design really stands out.
It has been an exceptionally busy year for us and we would like to send our thanks along with seasons greetings to all our customers.
We hope you all enjoyed your Christmas together with loving family and great friends and found some time among the festivities to put your feet up and relax a little! We know how difficult that can be!
We look forward to hearing from you in the New Year and to see what cake challenges you set for us in 2019. Don’t forget, whatever you’re celebrating – we have a cake for it!
We hope you all have a wonderful New Year.
Our wedding cakes are as unique as you are. You may have a particular theme or design in mind; you may want a particular flavour; you may want your cake to reflect your particular taste.
Woodland themes, floral designs and metallics have been much in demand this year and are set to continue into 2018 together with ruffles and colour. Cupcakes are still very much in demand, they provide just the right portion of cake and look and tast delicious. The top flavours this year are still vanilla and chocolate.
Clare and Calum chose to provide their guests with cupcakes adorned with butterflies and reflecting their wedding colour theme of navy and white.
For this beautiful wedding the bride and groom wanted something to reflect their personal style and chose to celebrate with a naked wedding cake. Three different and distinct flavours – chocolate fudge, ginger and lemon – one for each layer and finished with a selection of fresh berries. The whole effect looked stunning and Wethele Manor was the perfect backdrop for the occasion. We would like to wish the happy couple a wonderful future together.
Trends for weddings are constantly changing and we love having the opportunity to come up with new ideas and styles for wedding cakes. Sarah and Martin had their hearts set on a woodland theme. The cake consisted of mouthwatering lemon, chocolate and dairy-free vanilla sponge cakes. The whole effect was stunning and we hope that Sarah, Martin and their guests enjoyed it.
It’s never too early to start planning your wedding. Many of you will already have your colour scheme planned with some of you wanting lighter fresh and romantic colours while others will lean towards darker, formal and classic hues. Mixing and matching different colours will set the mood for your big day.
Here are our top 5 wedding colour trends for Spring and Summer – take a look:
1. Sage Green, Blush and Rose Pink
2. Aqua, Blush Pink and Cream
3. Coral, Teal and Peach
4. French Blue, Blush Pink and Gold
5. Pastel Pink, Pale Lavender and Green
We hope you had a wonderful time over the festive period! Now it’s almost time to take down those decorations and think about getting back to normal. We know from our order book that some of you have special reasons for celebration in 2017 and we can’t wait to showcase some of the designs that will be leaving our studios in the coming months.
Happy New Year to all our customers!
We’ve all heard of how Queen Elizabeth sends messages of congratulations to people celebrating their 100th birthday but messages are also sent to couples celebrating their 60th (Diamond) wedding anniversary.
60 years of marriage is a fantastic achievement and we hope this diamond couple had the most wonderful time celebrating with their family and friends. Here’s to you….
The Christmas shindigs are over for another year but don’t worry – if you’re not full from all that festive food, we have cake!
