Rose Gold and Pink Semi-Naked Cake for a Fun Hen Party!

Pink semi-naked cake with rose gold macarons by Juniper Cakery

Here’s a pretty in pink semi-naked cake we created for a rather stylish Hen Party (or Bachelorette Party if you’re reading this Stateside) recently! What’s not to love about it? It features all kinds of pink, is topped with Rose Gold macarons, AND it’s a fruity Raspberry Chambord flavour. We also added some of our bubblegum pink meringue kisses finished with a rose gold splatter.

Now let’s talk about the macarons. They’ve become SO popular in a past fews years that these days a semi-naked cake feels unfinished without them! This pretty cake has a mix of blush Raspberry Chambord macarons and glistening Rose Gold Prosecco macarons. Filled with a fruity raspberry buttercream and a dollop of Chambord infused raspberry preserve our Raspberry Chambord macarons are always a favourite. We also add a little Chambord liqueur into the buttercream to add a hint of booziness. Our Rose Gold Prosecco macarons are painted with a shimmering rose gold before being filled with Bottega Gold Rose Gold Prosseco! Definitely a favourite!

We get a lot of people messaging and even calling asking where our tableware comes from so… The blush pink and gold teapot is by the fabulous Bombay Duck London. As for the pale pink cake stand (one of our favourites) you can bag yourself one here.

Pink semi-naked cake heaven!

Even more macarons and pink meringue kisses surround the cake. Sprinkled on the top are light pink sugar strands from the stylish Fancy Sprinkles along with blush sugar pearls!

The custom pick included on this pink semi-naked cake is actually gold. We shot this cake in natural light so a slight shadow created a darker look to it.

That Rose Gold Prosecco macaron is just irresistible. Rose Gold is still such a hugely popular colour this year. Teamed with blush, different shades of mid pinks and soft grey tones it’s such a luxurious metallic.

Isn’t this the perfect cake for a modern Hen Party or even Bridal Shower!

Blush Pink Semi-Naked Wedding Cake with Fondant Frills!

Blush pink semi-naked wedding cake with white fondant frills by Juniper Cakery

We love a sun-filled late spring wedding… the full on florals, soft and luxurious colour palettes and, of course, the pretty wedding cakes! This weekend’s wedding centrepiece was perhaps the perfect springtime cake! Romantic blush pink, white ruffles, and glittering gold sequin drips! Plus there was a touch of the Parisienne… Oh la la!

Blush pink semi-naked wedding cake with white fondant ruffles by Juniper Cakery

This 3 tiered beauty was delivered and all set up at Rise Hall (20 minutes outside of Hull in Yorkshire) on a wonderfully sun-drenched day ready for a weekend of celebration! The bottom tier (our popular Strawberries & Champagne flavour) was adorned with so many textured fondant ruffles. We love creating edible frills as they are an amazing way to add drama to a pretty design.

The top 2 tiers are both delicious chocolate based flavours (Belgian Chocolate and also Cookies & Cream). Each feature a blush pink Madagascan vanilla infused buttercream finished with glistening gold sequin drips on alternate sides. Golden sequin drips are pretty much one of our signature and most requested decors for semi-naked cakes. They’re an amazing way to add a little extra glitz!

Look at that sweet little Eiffel Tower cookie! We’re noticing a trend this year with hidden objects on cakes that tell a story about the couple or hint at an inside joke. Paris was a special place for our happy couple, Amy and Tom, so they requested a Tour d’Eiffel cookie to be nestled on the middle tier. It’s a Madagascan vanilla sugar cookie finished with gold detailing and a blush pink heart. Doesn’t it add a fabulously personal touch?

Pink semi-naked wedding cake at Rise Hall!

Time to look at all those glorious edible ruffles! Aren’t they gorgeous? We create each ruffle individually by cutting, thinning and frilling every single piece. Obviously, this takes some time, but the results are worth it! Fondant frills are always a pretty addition to any cake. We like to make ours extra textured too. These are a sleek and bright white, but we’ve crafted edible ruffles in blush and even omrbé sky blue!

To decorate we added our popular Strawberry Milkshake macarons in plain white and blush finished with luxurious 24k gold leaf! We also nestled blush pink meringues in a light cotton candy / vanilla flavour. Sweet little patisserie style treats are perfect for semi-naked cakes! Madeleines, cream puffs, eclairs also make lovely edible decorations!

Flowers at Rise Hall by Floral Lounge

How gorgeous are the florals? All flowers (including the white roses on the cake) were by the talented and super hard-working Floral Lounge team in Kingston-upon-Hull! The candlebras were festooned with blush roses, white astilbe (they’re so feathery and pretty), giant pristine white hydrangeas, ivy and pale pink peonies.

Ah, look at that lovely closed pink peony! Every single year we can’t wait for peony season to start. Sadly, they never last for long (around a month?).

We also created two cute little Eiffel Tower cookies just for the bride and groom to enjoy… complete with mini hearts iced in blush, which matched the cake perfectly.

Event styling by Cherry Williams Party Hire

The luxe event styling was by the wonderful Cherry Williams Party Hire in Beverley! We love photographing styled chair shots and this was such a beauty. Subtle and glam with a soft blush satin bow on a Chiavari chair finished with a diamanté brooch!

Congratulations to Amy and Tom! We hope you and your guests enjoyed an amazing day in the spring sunshine at Rise Hall!

Pretty in Pink Unicorn Birthday Cake!

Cute pink unicorn birthday cake with rainbow by Juniper Cakery

We know that this is a cake for a cute 1st birthday, but the fun-loving side of us just can’t resist it! We even nicknamed the little unicorn on top, Stardust. With golden stars and a colourful rainbow this pink unicorn birthday cake is ready to start the party!

Here’s a nice little close-up of that magical fondant unicorn! We lightly dusted the body with white lustre for a little sparkle. Obviously, a must for a mythical creature right? Once we created it’s sweet little face and added lots of pink elements like it’s hair, ‘hooves’ and muzzle then finished it with tiny stars and a little blush.

We also made a glitzy star-studded number one topper to sit on top. We love adding a little metallic to any design. On this pink unicorn birthday cake we’ve also added lots of golden stars and a shimmering ribbon trim to match! Any metallic adds a lovely hint of luxury!

The cake inside is our light carrot cake filled with juicy sultanas, shredded carrots and some fragrant spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger). Paired with creamy Madagascan vanilla bean infused buttercream it’s a popular flavour for us!

The front of the cake features a fun edible rainbow of pink, lilac, baby blue, green and soft yellow fondant! Both ends finished with shimmery white clouds. We then adorned this blush pink unicorn birthday cake with a flurry of stars! The lucky little birthday girl, Darcey, then had her name added along the bright rainbow!

We loved making this adorable cake. While all our cakes are bespoke we like to make each little fondant unicorn super unique! For this one lots of pink was requested. We then added little stars in its curly hair too! We hope Darcey and all her guests had a wonderfully magical unicorn-filled day!

White on White Semi-Naked Cake with Fresh Peach Ombré Roses!

White semi-naked cake with white shimmer sequin drip by Juniper Cakery

Lots of colour on a cake is always eye-catching, but we absolutely adore sleek white on white designs. This white semi-naked cake for a Christening is the perfect example of how white can make any design super dazzling! Smothered with whitened buttercream and edged with a white shimmer sequin drip this cake instantly says modern elegance.

White sequin drip on a cake by Juniper Cakery

The drip was created out of white chocolate which still has a yellow cream tone to it. Because of this we hand-painted it with a bright white lustre from Squires Kitchen. Usually our sequin drips come in a glistening gold, rose gold, copper or silver. It was refreshing to see a subtle glimmering white working its way down the side.

The pretty florals on this cake were from the lovely staff at The Orange Grove in Hessle who we visit on a regular basis for all our semi-naked designs. We used large bloom white roses paired with beautiful ombré peach roses with creamy yellow petals. To add a more rustic and quirky greenery we including sprigs of feathery rosemary along with a little thyme nestled into the cake.

Alongside the cake we also whipped up lots of peach tinted Strawberry Milkshake cupcakes for guests to enjoy! These cupcakes featured a pale peach coloured buttercream swirl, white Belgian chocolate drizzle and sugar pearls to match the cake.

We also adorned the top of this pretty little number with golden macarons filled with Strawberry Milkshake ganache. We then added a flurry of sugar pearls including larger blush pink sprinkles, tiny white pieces and extra small golden dragées by the fabulous Fancy Sprinkles (we LOVE their fun range!).

The gorgeous white on white palette for the cake itself really helps set off the lovely botanical-like colours from the florals, which we love. We’re definitely looking forward to lots more sleek white semi-naked cakes this year!

NYC Themed Cupcakes!

Cool NYC themed cupcakes by Juniper Cakery

We LOVED these NYC themed cupcakes so much we thought we may as well dedicate an entire blog post to them. How fabulous are they?  They were created for one lucky girl who jetted off to the Big Apple for her birthday. The brief was obviously New York City. So, we scribbled down a few things we thought were NYC staples… shopping, foodfoodfood, coffee, souvenirs, the iconic I<3 NYC t-shirt and bakeries a-plenty and got designing.

I love NYC cupcake by Juniper Cakery

Fun NYC themed cupcakes!

Each cupcake decor was perched onto white subway tile embossed fondant. This also helped us keep the colour palette fresh, modern and clean! Colour is a big thing for us. We probably spend way too much time making sure everything matches or makes sense. We decided to add in pops of bubblegum pink with small elements of green as well as cleaner neutrals. Elements of pink come from the cool donut icing, blush NYC shirt, shopping themed cupcake and a tiny little fondant cupcake!

Fun New York themed cupcake by Juniper Cakery

Seriously, let’s get a close up on the donuts. They’re too adorable! The mid-pink ‘glazed’ donut even features a white Belgian chocolate drizzle! We had to make this cupcake loaded with tasty New York breakfast items so we made a pile of sugary donuts with a huge cup of coffee and an even bigger pretzel.

Burger themed cupcake by Juniper Cakery

Of course, a good burger is a must right? We created a tiny fondant version complete with pale brown fondant buns, a brown sugar paste beef patty, slices of ‘cheese’, ruffled light green ‘lettuce’ and a good amount of ‘mayo’ (or white Belgian chocolate). We added thinly cut cream fondant as crispy fries and finished the burger with a little NYC diner flag!

Yes, another shot of that cute fondant donut topped cupcake! Just look at the fun sprinkles (the pretty gold pearls are from Fancy Sprinkles). We also used sprinkles to create the salted look to our large fondant pretzel. The cup of coffee, for us, had to be huge as giant cappuccino cups always reminds us of Friends and Central Perk!

Shopping themed cupcake by Juniper Cakery

When it came to the edible shopping bags the famous Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag was pretty essential. We added a little colour with a cute pink Kate Spade bag stuffed with tissue paper. We’re such huge fans of Kate Spade’s fun and stylish designs too, plus they encapsulate New York for us! The edible tissue paper scrunched up into the bags are simply thinly rolled and cut sugar paste.

We also created a street sign with the birthday girl’s name hand painted across it, a pretty pink cupcake with a tiny bakery serviette, shiny fondant apple, Statue of Liberty souvenir crown and a large slice of pepperoni pizza. These NYC themed cupcakes were so much fun to make!
