Wedding Cupcakes & Cake

This has been an absolutely manic weekend with tonnes of cakes and cupcakes!!! Still trying to say 'no' but I always give in.

One of the best wedding cake set-ups was atWentbridge House Hoteltoday.

A table with a fabulouscentrepiece wedding cake, with cascading roses and hydrangeas; and a selection of cupcakes. What made the cupcakes special, was that they were set up on cake stands around the side of the main cake.

The cake itself was three tiers of Belgain chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate ganache buttercream.

Peanut Butter Experiments

This week has seen some experiments using peanut butter!
There's so many different ways to enjoy peanut butter but I've now discovered a new angle! Although there are cupcake makers that bring you these flavours, it was never anything I'd have thought to be good with cake. Anyway, a suggestion from one of my Facebook likers saw me giving it a go.

Unfortunatley I didn't take pics, but they were made very roughly, and tasted by the biggest fan of cake... ME!

Well the American candy treat, Reece's, was the basic idea for flavour number one.

Fantastic Wedding Details

Yesterday I delivered a summer garden wonky wedding cake for the wedding of Sarah and Martin Hughes. The room looked fantastic before we set up the main cake and the table centrepieces. It had a fuchsia colour scheme with the summer flowers twist.
Showing the room from behind the cake... fuchsia sashes on the chair covers and the three tier cake stands with our delicious cupcakes!
Each cake stand had a selection of cupcakes chosen by each guest prior to the day for their wedding breakfast dessert.

Cupcake Decorating

Cupcakes are very much a popular choice for celebrations of all kinds. They can be versatile in creating dramatic centrepieces for a huge event or just sweet on a three tier cake stand. Whatever you might want cupcakes for why not come along and learn how they are created?
There is still a place on this Saturday's Vintage Cupcake Decorating course. To find out more call 07814 425060.

Cake Pops & Truffles!

There's been some hype about cake pops and truffles recently! I have tried making them but they can be quite time consuming to make!!! 

Basically the idea behind them is easy to eat cake in a different way... take a look at some of the fantastic things other cake makers have done with them.
These cute Hello Kitty cake pops by Scrumptious Buns are absolutely fab for a kids party. They can be eaten as part of the party food or, if wrapped in a cellophane bag, can be party favours!

There are so many versatile ways of using these for parties, weddings or just enjoyed as a snack or dessert.
