Golden Wedding

Rob and Mo have been married 50 years this weekend. This is a vanilla cake layered with jam and buttercream and then iced like a layer of a traditional wedding cake. Gold piping and hand-made yellow sugar roses top it off. Hope your party goes well and congratulations to you both

Golden wedding

Happy Golden wedding anniversary to Pauline and Tony. Pauline carried a bouquet of yellow roses and Lily of the valley on her wedding day 50 years ago and her bridesmaids wore sea green dresses. As well as the sugar bouquet on top of thus rich fruit cake we have put tiny sea green flowers around the edge as an added reminder of the day.

Red rose wedding cake

Barbara is getting married. She wanted a simple sponge cake to celebrate, the bottom tier jam and buttercream filled and the top, a gluten free fresh lemon layer cake. All covered in an Italian meringue icing and finished with two big red sugar roses to remind the couple of their mothers who are no longer with us.

Very many congratulations to you both and all the best for the future

30th Wedding Anniversary

Elaine wanted a simple cake in very particular colours to celebrate her daughter and son-in-law’s 30th wedding anniversary. Inside was a vanilla and peach coloured marble cake, split with buttercream, to remind them of the peach coloured dresses their bridesmaids wore. The red writing and decorations allude to their first dance – Lady in Red. Congratulations.

Golden Wedding Cake

Kate’s parents celebrated their golden wedding last month. She particularly wanted a simple elegant cake that featured the lily of the valley and stephanotis flowers that her mother carried 50 years ago. So I have made the sugar bouquet and tiny white flowers around the sides to echo the broderie anglais of the bridesmaid’s dresses. I added a sugar bow and a sprinkle of shimmer powder to finish it off. Congratulations Gill and Stuart.

Golden wedding anniversary

Anne and Jack are travelling to the Lake District to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their family. Anne carried a bouquet of yellow roses on her wedding day (as did I actually) so this fresh lemon curd filled lemon cake has a sugar version of the same. Congratulations both of you, have a wonderful time with your family

Ruby Wedding Anniversary Cake

Florence and Michael were celebrating 40 years of marriage with a weekend of celebrations with their friends. We went for a rich fruit cake decorated with ruby roses, an edible photo of their wedding day in 1978 and sugar ‘snapshots’ of their lives here on the South Coast and in Tenerife. Happy anniversary to you both.florence anni 6

Golden Wedding

Rachel’s parents in law, Ian and Anne were renewing their wedding vows 50 years after they first made them. The service was to be followed by a party for all their friends and relations- all 75 of them. So, she asked for a big Madeira cake decorated with golden roses and three tiers seemed the best way to go about it. Congratulations Ian and Anne, Happy anniversary to you both.

I found out that Ian and Anne had the cake ‘piped in’ and they sent a picture of their grandson doing the honours.
