Here is a throwback to 2019, in this blog post I am sharing 5 of my favourite wedding cakes with you, simply because who doesn’t love wedding cake?! The cakes are in no particular order and I share what I love about each one. All of the cake makers in this post are based in Essex and Suffolk, so if you’re looking for your cake maker you may find them here.
Essex & Suffolk wedding cake inspiration
Which of the following is your favourite wedding cake? I couldn’t decide as I like something different in each of these, whether that was the simplicity, sugarcraft, chocolate drip, the list could go on! Are any of these similar to how you are having your cake and are any of these talented bakers making your cake? If you’ve not yet decided on your wedding cake, may this post bring you some inspiration, warning, it may leave you hungry and searching the cupboards for snacks!
Laura & Harry’s wedding cake made by Sassa’s Bespoke Cakes
I adored the simplicity of Laura and Harry’s wedding cake as it made the sugarcraft flowers stand out in all of their beauty. Laura and Harry had their wedding cake set up in the Grand Salon at Gosfield Hall. As this was the first room guests walked through on arrival to the venue, so the cake made a big impact and it wasn’t missed. The couple opted to frame their cake with flowers which they had in the church, this was a really lovely way to use the flowers for another part of the day and the flowers by The Flower Hut really complimented Sassa’s Bespoke Cakes creation.
Kat & Karl’s wedding cake made by Two Little Cats Bakery
Isn’t Kat and Karl’s wedding cake made by Two Little Cats Bakery just mesmerising to look at?! The contrast in colours works so well against the Granary Estates dark backdrop. I really loved the ombre/drip effect on this cake, I also loved the florals (supplied by Clare Jones Floral Design).
The couple opted with a two-tier semi-naked wedding cake and also had cupcakes to cater for gluten/dairy free wedding guests. This was a thoughtful thing to do as being gluten-free myself it is usually a given that there isn’t any cake for our kind. Always check with guests for any allergies/intolerances and ask if/how your cake makers can accommodate, your wedding guests will thank you later.
Charlotte & Tom’s wedding cake made by Amelie’s Kitchen
This cake made by Amelie’s Kitchen truly complimented the styling of Charlotte and Tom’s wedding at Glemham Hall. The gold top tier subtly matched the gold animal name holders, the foliage supplied by Tudor Rose Florist tied the cake in with the rest of the room, and the mint green bottom tier went with the overall colour theme of the day and will soon match Charlotte and Tom’s wedding album cover!
Rachel & Kevin’s wedding cake made by Kerry-Ann’s Cake Boutique
Kerry-Ann’s Cake Boutique never fails to amaze me with her cake skills and when I first saw Rachel and Kevin’s wedding cake set up at Hatfield Place, I’m pretty sure I just stood there looking at it for a moment! Yes, you’re seeing it right, this cake has a hollowed-out heart in the second tier, I still have no idea how Kerry made this, magic I say. As well as the incredible hollowed-out heart, the top tier has delicate hand-painted florals. As Rachel and Kevin’s main colour themes were white and rose gold the cake tied in perfectly with their day.
Kate & Scott’s wedding cake made by Lottie and Jakes Cakes
Last but by no means least is this beauty made by Lottie and Jake’s Cakes for Kate and Scott’s Italian themed wedding at West Street Vineyard. For those of you that know me, know I love calligraphy so I, of course, adore the cake topper! The flowers matched the flowers of Kate’s bouquet made by Flowers by Sarah Ann which helped to bring different elements of the day together visually.
I hope you enjoyed my look back at 5 of my favourite wedding cakes from 2019!
