Breaking Bad Wedding Cake

Breaking Bad fan? Big enough fan to have a Breaking Bad themed cake for your wedding?! Check out this awesome design we made for Craig & Corina's wedding back in August...

It was a two tiered creation with the top tier being a huge pile of cash...if you've watched the entire 5 series of Breaking Bad you'll know why! Walter "Heisenberg" White is sitting on the top tier with his signature black hat next to him. 

The rest of the cake is covered in Breaking Bad paraphernalia such as a bucket of "Los Pollos Hermanos" Blue Crystal Meth...made using icing and sugar crystals, Los Pollos Hermanos bag, Call Saul advert and the pink teddybear!

The bottom was finished off with Craig & Corina's names in the Breaking Bad logo & the date of their wedding!

Wedding Cakes - Up Close

I wanted to do a post where we show you more than just a full image of the cakes. A lot of our cakes have so much detail that they look stunning from far away but once you get up close you can really see the delicate details. 

Here is a cake we made back in December for a wedding at Whittlebury Hall, Towcester. They had the design called 'Harper' that is usually completely ivory but Ambareen included the colours that matched their theme such as grape, burgundy  dark purple, navy blue & dark green and each of the flowers had gold pearls in the centres. 

This is the close-up of the cake and the handmade flowers. 

This is the cake set up at the venue (Whittlebury Hall) with the bride & groom. The flowers in the jars were to be for the tables and hadn't been set up yet but I thought the cake looked nice with all the different colour flowers around it!

This is also 'Harper' but is completely ivory, with pearl centres.

Here is one of our new designs called 'Ava'. Each tier has a wreath of roses & other flowers going around and would be perfect for a Spring wedding! All of the flowers are handmade & are completely edible!

'Pearl' is a lovely cake that has 'necklaces' delicately piped all over the cake. It also has roses on the top tier and a few on the other tiers.

 Tammie is one of our most popular designs for this year as it's a great way to incorporate different elements into your cake. It features large & small roses, daisies & other flowers and is finished off with a few butterflies flowing up the cake.

'Darcy' is quite a vintage themed cake in creams, peaches & deep dusky pinks. Each of the tiers has a different style of piping on whilst the top tier is finished off with a cluster of deep dusky pink roses.

I hope you enjoyed our 'close ups' of our wedding definitely shows all the delicate details on our cakes!

Jack & Michelle's Big Fat Sponsored Wedding

December 15th 2012 was Michelle & Jack's big day...but it wasn't your typical wedding! Everything on the day from the venue to the cake was sponsored for their special day & it was advertised through their website. Michelle had seen weddings similar to this in America but they only advertised to the guests, so Michelle decided to have their own sponsored wedding but advertise to a much wider audience. She created a website that had a section dedicated to each supplier and advertised online and in magazines such as Image. It soon became a huge sensation and bloggers everywhere have been talking about it!

We created Michelle & Jack's wedding cake for their special day. It was a four tier with red & white cascading flowers and each tier had a different design from frills to pearls! It complemented their Christmas wedding perfectly. Take a look at some of the photos from their big day!

The photographer for the day was Carl Thomson Photography who took some gorgeous photos of the happy couple and their guests!

They also had a video of their wedding made by Electra Film Weddings which features the happy couple cutting their cake!

Congratulations Michelle & Jack on your special day & we wish you all the best for the future

Wedding Wednesday - Novelty Cakes

I thought this week I would do a fun themed Wedding Wednesday so here are a few novelty cakes...

And they lived....Happy Ever After!

One with all the family...

New York themed cake....the little yellow taxi's are so cute! It was finished off with Belvedere Castle on top!

This was one of our favourite Novelty cakes and the Bride & Groom were so thrilled with it...

"We wanted a unique statement cake. Helen created our offset 3 tier honeymoon cake; 'Rocky Steps' leading up to the 2nd tier & a hexagonal top toer with a map of the USA on top, two side each for New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco, complete with yellow taxis, personalised chips & Alcatraz. Amazing!!!'

Wedding Wednesday - Winter Themed!

 As Christmas is on it's way I thought I would do a Winter Themed Wedding Wednesday post today!

These individual cakes weren't for a winter wedding but we thought they could fit in with a winter themed wedding day. They were all delicately piped and the top cake was finished off with a big bow with a diamante brooch.

These biscuits were favours for a wedding that took place in a Snow Bar! They were personalised with guests names and sprinkled with glitter.

This fun & festive bauble cake is from our Budget Range and features a topper made of baubles and the cake is decorated with snowflakes.

This ski-ing themed novelty cake is one of our favourites! The Bride & Groom are ski-ing away on their snow-covered cake!

And to finish off, I thought I would include our Christmas wedding cake! The gingerbread bride & groom are so cute!
