    Why Choose a Buttercream Wedding Cake?

    If you fall into my club, as a person who has a strong dislike for eating fondant, and will peel off the excessively sweet covering before diving into the cake – I probably don't need to explain to you why you would choose a buttercream cake over a fondant-covered one. You know for flavour alone, that buttercream cakes taste delicious. And just to say my buttercream is always made with butter, and organic butter at that, so it has that delectable melt-in-the-mouth flavour.   Read More...

I knew it would all look amazing when I found out that Mary Jane Vaughan would be doing the flowers.   Read More...

    Modern and Elegant Winter Wedding Inspiration at The Charterhouse, London

    Almost a year ago now, I took part in an incredible editorial shoot with a fabulous team of suppliers - I'd shared some sneak peeks earlier this year. We were so pleased when we heard that Love My Dress were going to feature it on their blog as they don't share may styled editorial shoots - it means a lot when you know a blog absolutely loves what you've created. From the outset, we knew we wanted to create something really natural and organic, but also striking and modern to stand o...  Read More...

    Romantic Buttercream Cake for a Beautiful Wedding at Buxted Park Hotel in Sussex

    I've been making wedding cakes for a while now and each cake is so special. As I learn more about the couple, the cake becomes part of their story - it reflects their love and their emotion. This is why I adore making wedding cakes, because it's more than just a tower of foodstuff - it's integral to the whole romantic tale of the couple, and cutting the cake is one of the first things the couple will do together after being united in marriage.   Read More...
