Llangoed Hall Cascading Roses Wedding Cake

This classic, romantic design incorporated handmade sugarpaste roses in varying shades of cream that cascaded down each of the four tiers. The bride had selected an all cream cake to compliment the rich jewel tones of the floral displays that adorned the marquee that was situated in the stunning gardens of the imposing setting of Llangoed Hall. Each of the four tiers was accented with cream satin ribbon which allowed the beautiful roses to act as the main focal point of the design, and truly bring the country garden feel into the venue itself. The bride selected tiers of traditional Victoria Sponge layered alternately with vanilla buttercream and luscious strawberry or raspberry preserve.

Allt-yr-ynys Roses and Dots Wedding Cake

The bride and groom had tasted our rich Belgian chocolate cake at a wedding fayre and the groom, "a non-cake eater", gave his approval. The bride selected a 3 tier cake, with tiers that were higher than a traditional wedding cake to give that extra impact. The design itself combined beautiful handmade sugar roses and petals in varying hues of cream with dainty hand piped icing dots to each tier of the cake. The hand piped dots were inspired by the inclusion of pearls in the decoration of the marquee at the wedding venue and the roses complimented the fragrant floral displays. The cake flavours included a traditional Victoria sponge filled with lashings of vanilla buttercream and strawberry preserve, a lemon drizzle cake layered with lemon buttercream and lemon curd and finally the all important rich Belgian chocolate cake smothered in decadent Belgian chocolate ganache.

Glyffaes Brooch and Bow Wedding Cake

The bride saw this cake displayed in Love Lily of Abergavenny and decided that this classic design fitted her theme perfectly. The four tier, all white cake, was accented with handmade icing ribbons and a bow adorned with a handmade Swarovski crystal and pearl brooch. The sides of each ribbon were decorated with individual Swarovski pearls to echo the feel of Victorian style buttoning and to compliment the pearls in the brooch itself. The cake itself was a combination of rich fruit and Victoria sponge tiers.

Double Birthday Celebration

A cake for two special birthday's with two very different themes. Emma wanted a cake that combined her Dad's love of golf with her Aunt's love of shopping, so the final design was a two tier cake with hand modelled golfer and shopping paraphernalia. The bottom tier was a traditional Victoria sponge and the top tier a rich Belgian chocolate cake (Emma's Aunt being a confessed Chocoholic). Unfortunately we didn't get a photo of the two tiers together, but the design was separated by an acrylic stand that encased the modelled golfer.
