Naked Wedding Cakes
There is nothing quite as nice as a naked wedding cake – fresh sponge, layered with lashings of buttercream and our homemade jam or curd, then covered with fresh fruit or flowers. If you want further decoration we can also add in sugar decorations, cake toppers, bunting or figurines. We can even create different tiers so some are chocolate and some are vanilla or even lemon or salted caramel.
Our naked wedding cakes typically have three layers of soft, moist sponge sandwiched together with a light and fluffy buttercream, homemade jam and/or curd. You also get a cake that is as close to being served straight out of the oven as you can get. The naked cakes are usually baked the day before your event and then assembled either on site or just before delivery to ensure they are as fresh as humanly possible. If you decide to have a naked wedding cake we recommend it is eaten within 4-5 hours of being set up at your venue.
As a guide, prices start from £195 for a 3 tier naked cake. Included in the price are fruit/berries, some flowers and a dusting of icing sugar.
Semi-Naked Wedding Cakes
Semi-naked cakes are a twist on the naked cake. They have an extra, very thin coating of buttercream on the outside so the cake layers show through whilst keeping the sides nice and straight. Not as casual as the naked cake, it still has a rustic feel but dressed up with flowers, fruit or even macarons, is perfect for just about any style of wedding.
Prices start from £210 for a 3 tier semi-naked cake.
Buttercream Wedding Cakes
For those who are not lovers of fondant icing or simply love the look of buttercream, these cakes are very versatile. From smoothly-iced buttercream, rose swirls, rustic texture, piped dots or even with gold leaf. We can add fresh flowers, toppers and even sugar flowers to your design.
Prices start from £225 for a 3 tier buttercream cake.
Fondant/Iced Wedding Cakes
With fondant you can create a smooth, flawless surface and an elegant appearance that is more formal than the naked cakes. Luxurious in its appearance, fondant can be dyed any colour you like and will keep the cake incredibly moist. Underneath that flawless finish…layers of fluffy buttercream and our signature homemade jam or curd. The possibilities for decorating on fondant are, of course, endless. We can make sugar flowers or use real (non-toxic) flowers, make figures or use edible lace, even novelty features or different shaped tiers. Our wedding cakes are typically 4"-5” in height, with 3 layers of sponge and 2 layers of filling.
As our wedding cakes are bespoke there is no set price. As a rough guide a 3 tier sponge starts from £240. The total cost will be dependent on the size and complexity of the design.
We can make cupcake towers and even giant cupcakes for your wedding. Either with a simple buttercream swirl or with fondant icing toppers, we can tailor-make your cupcakes to fit in with your wedding theme and colour-scheme. We have a cupcake stand that can be hired.
Prices for wedding cupcakes start from £2 and giant cupcakes from £40.
