Cakey catch up

It has been some time, I know, since I shared my recent cakes with you. So this post my have to come in two parts! Unfortunately one of the downsides from my business Nevie-Pie Cakes doing so well is that I have less and less time to blog, which is one of my absolute pleasures in life. Hopefully now that the Summer holidays are here I will get a little bit more time to keep you up to date, but I'm not making any promises!

This cake was for an art deco themed wedding with a portrait topper of the bride and groom. I had a really lovely email from the bride about her cake. 'Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding cake! It looked absolutely stunning and tasted delicious - the lemon sponge with passionfruit curd worked really well and made for a summery and unusual dessert. We almost couldn't bear to cut it but had a small army of very over-excited children egging us on! It was a real pleasure to work with you throughout the design process and your attention to detail and skill made all my ideas for the cake come to life.'

This was a dummy cake made for a monochrome themed photoshoot. you can see the whole shoot on the Bespoke Bride Blog

This cake was based on the couples wedding stationary and their flowers. It was a little bit stressful as I was on holiday the week of their wedding, but they really wanted a cake made by me. So we made lots of testers and came up with a cake that would still taste fresh two weeks after being made. I was relieved to hear after the wedding that the cake was perfect and tasted great,

A vintage style cake, again based on the wedding flowers, ranunculus and anenomes.

  1. Your painted cakes are absolutely gorgeous! I love painting and I love making & decorating cakes but I wouldn't have dreamed of combining the two. The florals are just stunning; the cakes look so modern but with a nod to the past - and your execution is superb. Thanks so much for sharing, they're a feast for the eyes! H xxx
