A Trio of Naked Wedding Cakes

September has been a busy month for naked wedding cakes with lots of couples opting for these berry dressed beauties! Here’s a little round up including all the details of those little personal touches…
This first cake is one of my favourites! Set-up at J and A Cafe in Clerkenwell, the couple opted for fresh berries as well as crystallised wild roses, fresh roses and this lovely bike cake topper with their initials.

 

They had two layers of Victoria sponge and a layer of lemon sponge filled with even more lovely raspberries.

 

Next up is this fun little number that I delivered to Putney a few weeks ago. The couple had a marquee in their garden and put a lot of effort into their DIY theme. The groom even made the amazing cake boards out of a tree from their garden – I don’t know about you but I would happily commission a couple from him – they’re superb don’t you think?
As they are into their diving, the couple asked me to make these little shark bride and groom cake toppers based on something similar that they had seen on Pinterest.
I also made a separate little cake for the bride as she is lactose intolerant so I created this chocolate sponge with chocolate ganache and salted caramel drizzle especially for her!
Last up is this four tier cake set up at One Friendly Place in Deptford, South-East London. The couple opted for four different flavoured tiers and I decorated each tier with fresh berries and cherries as well as white and purple lisianthus, gypsophila and roses. They also had a custom cake topper made of them and their three cats!
To balance all of these naked cakes I am keeping myself very busy in the LBC kitchen over the next few weeks creating lots of lovely sugar flowers…watch this space for some new designs very soon!

Lego Polka Dot Wedding Cake

With another Lego wedding cake on the way in a few weeks, I realised that I still haven’t shared this one from June! The lovely photos are courtesy of fine art film photography by Taylor & Porter.
This wedding had such a fun D.I.Y. feel with a bright colour pop of blue, green, yellow and red. They really went to town on lots of little personal touches which really complimented the 60s building at Imperial College, London where the reception was held.
The groom is a big Lego fan so made the wonderful cake topper and date plaque that sat at the foot of the wedding cake to commemorate their special day.
The polka dots were then added to tie in with the bride’s stunning tea-length wedding dress – so cute don’t you think?!
