Hannah & Dafydd - Winter Wedding

This design definitely creates a wow factor - complete with edible sugar shards and Swarovski crystals.

Cascading snowflakes

I absolutely love the snow - so what better excuse to venture out and take some photos? This pure white, four tier design featured drifting hand cut icing snowflakes, crystal, diamante and pearl snowflake accents and shimmering organza ribbon - perfect for a winter wedding.

"Naked" Cake

Sponge cake, luscious fresh berries, buttercream and conserve with a light dusting of icing sugar - perfect for a rustic themed wedding. This design was accented with cascading rose petals and stood on a section of wood for an enchanted woodland feel.

Monochrome Wedding Cake

This monochrome design was pure simplicity. Featuring a hand painted monogram that echoed that of the wedding invitation, the look was completed with sleek black and white cotton ribbons and a plinth of gypsophilia. The whole ambiance of the design was inspired by the Bride's engagement ring - truly memorable!

Lesley & Steve - vintage elegance

So "en vogue" at the moment is the vintage theme - this time in hues of ivory and burgundy. This cake was created for a couple where the Bride loved fruit cake and the Groom loved Victoria sponge - the solution, a fruit top tier combined with Victoria and lemon sponge cupcakes. The top tier included handmade sugar roses, open roses, tulips, hydrangea blossoms and greenery to replicate the floral displays that adorned the Glen yr Afon House Hotel, and was completed with a handmade, icing bow. The cupcakes, incorporated various vintage nods including pearls, bows, lace and of course flowers. Complementing the table display were Welsh cake favours with handwritten tags and ribbon to co-ordinate with the colour scheme - visit our Facebook page to see more.

Vintage French Wedding

I love hat boxes and what better excuse to use them than a vintage French theme? Delicate pink and gold hues,  lace,  shoes and distressed metal elements - oh la la! Mini cakes and cupcakes displayed with your wedding cake create an impact and allow elements of a theme to be included subtley.

Vintage tea party

This vintage inspired cake in hues of peach and ivory would be perfect for the current trend of "the tea party". This design comprises of a pretty three tier cake with handmade sugar flowers and delicate vintage lace all displayed on a pressed glass stand. Why not accessorise your cake with vintage china, a lace table cloth and pearls to give that extra vintage essence? Mini cakes and cupcakes decorated with handmade icing cameos, shoes, ruffles and flowers complete the vintage look.

Bunting christening cake

This brightly coloured christening cake featured hand cut icing bunting, dainty blossoms, butterflies, ladybirds, and button centered daisies- how cute!

Jane Eyre Wedding Cake

Vintage lace, hand-piped pearl drop embroidery and hand made icing roses and hydrangeas, combined to create a cake fit for a period drama. This four tier design was inspired by the classic romantic novels of Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte, visit our Facebook page to see our Jane Eyre inspired dessert table featuring this cake.

Crystals & Bows

Vintage roses and lace with a little bit of sparkle. Perfect for a small wedding celebration, a combination of traditional top tier, mini cakes and cupcakes in hues of ivory. This pretty design incorporated hand made icing roses, cascading blossoms and bows with accents of crystal and diamante.
