So this week I’m working on another beautiful pressed flower wedding cake design for the weekend and I just wanted to share a close up from this super cute, single tier design from a few weeks ago. 

Decorated with completely edible flowers, pressed by myself and lovingly grown in Devon by the amazing Georgina @rivergardenflowers

Congratulations @gracie.blackburn & Shamin 🥂🫶
So it’s been a week since the lovely G & S said “I do” @deerparkcountryhouse and what a stunning wedding it was. 

Here’s a snap of their classic buttercream design with rice paper flames and edible gold leaf highlights. 

As always, lovely to work with

What a joy to have been back on the door step of the wonderful Huntsham Court for M&P’s epic wedding this Saturday. 

Take a look at some behind the scenes snippets

They chose two flavours over three tiers,

Pistachio & Rose and 
Orange, Pear & Passion Fruit

I’m loving the shape, what do you think?

CAKE DISPLAY

I am a huge fan of a flower meadow! 
Created by @hannah_florist 

With the use of some florals, directly decorating a cake, being unsuitable for food contact, then It’s a perfect way to add any florals to your cake display without actually touching the cake.

These cupcake jewels were decorated with all edible flowers and greenery, grown locally by the amazing @rivergardenflowers
A floral flourish for this beautiful cake display.

Thank you to @hannah_florist for the incredible flower meadow and to @rivergardenflowers for the British grown edible flowers for the cupcakes.

Nice to meet @theprettyprop 

Congratulations A&O 🥂
The beauty of Summer, pressed and captured in a delicious edible moment.

Changing things up with Hexagonal tiers. 

Thank you @rivergardenflowers for your floral magic 🩷

It certainly felt that Summer had arrived for O&P’s wedding morning in late May. 
Clear blue skies looking out over Shaldon and Teignmouth, what a spot to celebrate and celebrate they did!!

A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of setting up for Z&R’s wedding at this charming former Sunday School @thehallexeter.

A venue full of character, history and situated on one of the oldest (and steepest!) surviving parts of Exeter City, love it!

Classic elegance 🤍

I’m a sucker for a B & W shot but often they just don’t showcase the cake details enough …
but not on this occasion .. this image is perfect!

From initial sketch to the first cut

Following design discussions, an impression sketch is the beginning of the vision, for your dream wedding cake becoming reality.

This was @leannenutley vision and the classic bow took centre stage in this elegant wedding, with a certain Hollywood feel don’t you think?

@theupdogirl 

I’ll be sharing a few more “sketches to final design stories”, in the coming months, as many more ‘first cuts’ take place.
The Clematis is loving the sunshine and flowering beautifully in the garden.

If you love them, as much as I do, and want to incorporate them into your seasonal wedding decor, they are a beautiful addition to your floral display.

However, Clematis can be toxic and therefore not suitable to adorn a cake but my handcrafted sugar flowers are a perfect alternative.
Over the moon to have my cakes featured not once but twice in the latest Devon edition of @wedmagazine 🤍 Thank you x
