Cake Style, Decorations and Colouring:
Our cake style is your style! Many of our designs are bespoke so if you have something specific in mind we will always do our best to work with your ideas and produce a unique cake which emulates your style. All of our sugar crafted items are handmade so if you have certain colour, a specific flower or detail on your dress that you'd like we can certainly incorporate them into your cake design.
We have huge colour palate to work from and we can blend an infinite range of colours and shades. We do our best to source a colour match for your cake ribbons perhaps to match the groom's colours or the bridesmaids dresses. Our cakes are coated in fondant which is usually toned in with the bridal gown and we offer a soft bridal white, ivory or porcelain (pale ivory). We are able to blend any colour of fondant you wish so if you fancy something a little different that's not a problem.
Cake Size and Shape
Round cakes tend to be the most popular shape, however we also offer square and heart shaped cakes for weddings. Unusual designs and shapes can be carved from sponge, for example mountain shaped cakes.
The number of tiers and size of each tier will depend on the guest numbers and the look of the overall design. We can offer faux tiers which will be iced to look like real cake if you want an extra tier for height but don't need too much sponge for guests.
Standard sizes are 4", 6", 8", 10" & 12" but we can offer other sizes on request or if the design requires it.
We can create a wide range of cake fillings and flavours, and multi-tier cakes can have a different flavour for each layer, including a dairy, nut or gluten free options too. Please use the below as some inspiration for you, and just ask if you've other flavour ideas.
Rich Dark Chocolate
This decadent sponge is made using the highest quality 70% cocoa chocolate.
This sponge is layered up with ganache infused with all-natural, syrupy Madagascar Bourbon vanilla paste of highest quality. Raspberries can be added to this recipe.
A light coffee sponge, flavoured using real espresso, with a rich chocolate filling.
We add real caramel to the sponge and between the layers of your cake which is filled with white ganache. A truly sweet and unctuous cake!
We make our own lemon syrup, made using the zest and juice, which is then drizzled between the layers of sponge.
Moist Golden Rich Fruit
We have developed a rich fruit recipe that offers a piece of tradition without being too heavy and dark. They are baked well in advance and given time to mature with lashings of French brandy which means your cake with be very moist! (Coated in natural marzipan then fondant)

If you are particularly fond of a flavour you don’t see on our list, we’re happy to discuss making it for you where possible.
A bit more about our wedding cakes...
We always source the best quality ingredients for our cakes which will be organic and local wherever possible as this is something we really care about!
We use ganache and fondant on all of our cakes with the exception of the rich fruit. All wedding cakes will be split and filled twice, giving a minimum of 3 sponge layers. Some cakes will contain more layers depending on the depth of the tiers.
We are very happy to provide dairy, nut and gluten free cakes but please do note that they are prepared in our kitchen where we handle all of these products.
Cutting cakes can also be provided
Wedding Cup Cakes
We offer cupcakes in a choice of flavours:
Milk, white or dark chocolate
You can choose between soft, swirly tops or flat fondant topped cupcakes. We can offer simply cupcakes or the option of cupcakes with a top tier of sponge. This gives you the best of both worlds. You'd have a lovely cake tier to cut for your photos and cupcakes to give to your guests. We can ice the cupcakes in any colour and can provide cupcake wrappers as an additional option. Prices start from 4.00 euros per cupcake and 85 euros for the top tier. Cupcake stands can be hired. A refundable deposit will be held until the stand is safely returned.
Cookies and Wedding Favours
Details coming soon
A groom's cake originated in the UK and is very popular in America. Traditionally, the groom's cake is served at the rehearsal dinner or as part of the evening buffet on the wedding night. It makes for a good option to have another flavour of cake.
Generally they are decorated to reflect the Groom's hobbies such as climbing, golfing, love of super heroes etc.
The flavour choice for the groom's cake was traditionally a richer, darker flavour such as chocolate or rich fruit. This was to reflect the "stonger sex". Of course nowadays anything goes in terms of flavour. We find that our grooms often love our toffee caramel cake, it's super sweet and delicous!
