Cake Cutting Nostalgia

I've been having a bit of a nostalgic week, looking back at my four years of cake making and looking forward to all the beautiful cakes to come. I can't wait to show you all the new creations I've got coming up, but for now, here are some of the many happy couples who cut my cakes from the last few years.

This was one of the first wedding cakes I ever made. Styles have changed quite a bit in the last few years, now it would seem anything is possible!

This gorgeous photo shows the lovely Hayley cutting 'The Birdcage' one of 2011's most popular cakes. Hayleys Wedding was at our favourite location Rivervale Barn in the summer. I do love a nice black and white photo.

Lucy and Chris married in November 2010. A year later they welcomed the gorgeous Jessica Lily to the family....must have been something in the cake ;)

Andy and Sarah tied the knot in an amazing marquee in the summer of 2010, I was lucky enough to be cake maker, florist and Maid of Honour at this Wedding! Andy is my brother and Sarah my Sister in Law. I will soon be welcoming a new Neice or Nephew......exciting...

Rebecca tied the knot in December 2009, I love this photograph, so romantic. They chose one of my more unusual designs, a chocolate covered cake with cream rose detail. Look closely and you will see Micky Mouse on the second tier. Such fun to incorporate a meaningful detail.

Anna and Robin married in August 2009, again in a beautifully decorated marquee. The cake was really tall and elegant, filled with vintage roses. Anna designs bridalware and even made her own dress. DamatoBridal

Claudia and Rupert chose an all time classic cake.
My most popular year round cake, tall, elegant and a timeless classic. 5 tiers of pearlised ivory cake layered with fresh cream avalanche roses and piped side detail. A great choice for a tall and impressive room such as those at The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Parliment Square.

I'll finish off my nostalgic trip with a picture of Elaine and Saiid. They wed in January 2010 and ordered a massive tower of Bollywood minicakes. I hear they now have a beautiful little boy called Leo who's birthday cake I have just made! Happy Birthday Leo.
