Just a huge, huge thanks for our cake!

It was absolutely stunning and the guests were amazed by your design and the teacup! They, and we, just loved it!
It was delicious, cut brilliantly and we were very sorry that there was not more left over!

We had just the lemon cut for the day and that was the whole bottom tier for about 70 guests so quite generous slices. We kept the top tier for family after the wedding who were staying around for a few days.

The little cakes in the clear boxes made wonderful gifts and looked so effective! One of these went into my work for about 8 people and went down very well. The other two went to the Mothers on the day.

Thank you again for your
marvellous creations!

Thanks again for making our special day magical”. Coert

I love this image of the lovely Hannah and Dave cutting their wedding cake in the beautiful ballroom of Leigh Court in Bristol. They wanted a cake design that would look at home in the grand ballroom, which has an amazingly detailed ceiling. The 4 tier cake had a deep hand painted tier in pale blush and peachy pinks, The base was finished with filigree work accented with pure edible gold leaf. I also created a monogrammed oval to sit on the front of the top tier, hand painted with the couples initial and finished again with gold leaf. Hannah and Dave also chose to have a selection of my edible teacups surrounding the cake which were given as special thank you gifts to members of the bridal party.

“Thank you so much for the cake Emily, it was so beautiful”

A hand painted cake demo…

It is always a pleasure to be asked to demo my hand painting skills in front of an audience – this time it was for the ‘BIG BOROUGH BAKE OFF’ a local village celebration here in Cornwall. Lots of keen bakers and cake decorators came along to see the lovely Glenn Cosby, of Great British Bake Off fame, demo some recipes from his new book. I attempted to hand paint a cake in an hour – chatting with the audience along the way giving them hints and tips and answering any questions they had – They were a lovely group, very friendly and (more…)

I absolutely love these photos by the very talented Nick Reader Photography – Anna and Tom’s wedding was the perfect combination of wild floral and nautical chic. They chose a to have a selection of my completely edible teacups and saucers as their wedding cake, not only to give to their guests as favours but also to create a fabulous centerpiece in their marquee (set atop a Cornish cliff top!). Anna’s family hand made pretty bunting and napkins out of a selection of (more…)
