Butterfly Cake

Last weekend we created a cake for a special Sweet Sixteen birthday. Such a milestone birthday definitely deserves a spectacular cake to mark the occasion. The birthday girl picked one of our favourites cakes ever – our Rainbow Butterfly Cake!  I truly loved making this cake, it’s just such a pretty and happy cake and never fails to bring a smile to my face.

The cake is a riot of colour with hues from the whole rainbow spectrum!  The butterflies are just so pretty with their delicate wings caught in mid-flutter as they rest on the cake.  The whole cake is edible as the butterflies are made of vanilla flavoured rice-paper.

One bonus of having a two-tier cake is not only does it provide extra drama and height (and of course more yummy cake!), you can pick multiple flavours too!  This particular cake had  a bottom tier of red velvet cake with tangy lemon buttercream and a top tier of vanilla cake with with strawberry buttercream.

Here are a couple more pics of the cake.  Enjoy!

Bridal Oreo Pops

Last week I also made these vanilla oreo pops.  Inspired by bridal design, these have a monochrome palette and sweet simple designs.  My favourites are the triple hearts and the ones with bridal “buttons” in a row.  I absolutely adore the row of buttons that run down the back of some bridal gowns and I wanted to capture that in oreo pop form!

These oreo pops are definitely moreish.  What’s not to love about an oreo covered in creamy white chocolate?

These would be perfect for a bridal shower or wedding!

Bridal Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to create some bridal inspired cupcakes for Hong Kong based designer Vivian Luk.  Vivian designs some truly gorgeous bridal and evening dresses, check out her dreamy creations here.  Plus she previously worked in New York with the queen of bridal design herself – Vera Wang.  If I were a bride-to-be I’d definitely head over to her atelier!

I wanted to create some cupcakes based on Vivian’s gorgeous dresses, so went with a white on white theme.   I kept things simple, clean and modern, with sculpted bows, delicate lace and a sprinkling of pretty flowers.

The cupcakes were lemon flavoured with a delicate limoncello buttercream frosting.  Just enough to add a grown up hint of alcohol but not enough to be overpowering.

These would also be perfect for a bridal shower or wedding event!

Mood Board: Feel the Love Engagement Party

Mood boards are a great way to convey the different elements of a party, and Pinterest is a super-easy way to pull one together.  If you haven’t jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon as yet (warning: it’s totally addictive), check out our Pinterest website here.

We created this mood board above as suggestions for a heartfelt engagement party.  What better way to celebrate the love of a couple about to embark on a new and exciting stage in their lives together!  The theme is very much based on lots of hearts, with co-ordinating red and white accompaniments.

To go into more depth with more ideas, check out our Feel the Love Engagement Party board.

Our Red Ombre Heart Cake would be perfect too for a celebration like this!  For more of our cake creations, check out Enjoy! Bespoke Cakes.

Red Ombre Heart Cake

So I made this cake a little while ago but didn’t have time to blog about it as yet.  Inspired by the current trend for all things ombre (graduated colour), I decided to create a clean, modern cake with a sweet surprise.

The exterior of the cake is pure alabaster white with a striking scarlet heart on the front.  So far so normal, but once you cut into the cake, a lovely surprise energes.  Just take a look at those glorious layers:

I especially love the red and white colour combo and the graduation from pale pink to deep crimson.  The colour contrast is so striking and effective.

We can of course do this cake in a variety of different colours, say green or blue or even as a rainbow!

This cake would be perfect for Valentine’s Day or perhaps an engagement party. Or maybe just to say “I love you”!
