Frosty mornings....

The sunshine and glittering frost this morning brought to mind white roses and pearls-simple sophistication for a winter wedding.
Winter Rose Cake

Which reminded us of the marshmallow snowflakes which are not only fun to make but look so pretty too.

We love a bit of ombre, and right now it's reminding us of sunnier days...  
We think it's a beautiful eye catching trend that is perfect for weddings.

Pretty in pink ombre cake starting from £60.00

So easy to do yourself, spray paint bottles in shades of pink

These flowers are perfect! 

So cute for a bridesmaid

Naked Cakes!

Naked cake, Sandcastle cakes: delicate, beautiful and so tasty...
We love naked cakes at Pat-a-cake. 
By 'naked' we mean without layers of marzipan and royal icing. A moist plain sponge filled with buttercream and fruits. Simple is beautiful, perfect for the modern couple.We think they are the tastiest and if taste is just as important as the look to you on your wedding day then these are the cakes for you....

We were recently featured on the Brides Magazine website talking about naked cakes.  
Let us know what you think, would you have a naked cake for your wedding day?

BRIDES magazine- July/ August 2012

Recent feature in BRIDES magazine, showing you how to crystalize your own pansies for a pretty homespun cake. All the pansies on the cake that we supplied were grown organically in our garden away from nasty pesticides. We only use pasteurised egg whites so there is no danger to pregnant ladies and the elderly! Although if you buy eggs from a reputable source such as a supermarket you should be fine. Just want everyone to know how to crystalize flowers safely!
We love how pretty the cake turned out and the pansies looked so delicate with their sugar sparkle.  What do you think? Would you have a flower themed wedding?
