This year we’ve added tasty Belgian chocolate covered oreos to our product line! These can get addictive by the way. It’s a crunchy Oreo cookie enrobed with tempered Belgian milk chocolate. We then dressed it up as a sweet Christmas pudding with edible gold splatters, white candy icing and fondant holly berries and leaves! What a fabulous holiday treat!

We LOVE making squishy melt-in-your-mouth marshmallows. We included them in our Easter and Halloween treat bags as large chunky gourmet versions. For Christmas and winter we’ve dipped a vanilla marshmallow in Belgian chocolate and crushed candy cane and turned it into the cutest marshmallow stirrer! Enjoy dipped in hot cocoa or indulgent mochas for a fabulous treat.

Pretty Blush Pink Floral Wedding Cake at Saltmarshe Hall!

Blush pink wedding cake at Saltmarshe Hall by Juniper Cakery

We’ve been so busy this wedding season that we only just now have a bit of time to write a post! Perfect for a spring wedding we created this gorgeously blush wedding cake in March. A pretty bespoke creation for the lovely Sally and Andrew who celebrated at the serene Saltmarshe Hall! It was the very first cake of our wedding season and we were so excited to make it.

In the centre was a pink ombré modern rose with rose petals swirling around the centre bud. On each side we added ombré open peonies with light pink inner petals fading to white for the ruffled petals on the outside. Dotted around were small white damson blossoms, rose leaves and grey-green eucalyptus springs.

This wedding cake at Saltmarshe Hall featured glittering 24k edible gold leaf which adorned the centre. These burst out from underneath the sugar florals and add an extra bit of luxe.

We added a little touch of texture to the top tier with hand-piped royal icing pearls. This is definitely one of our favourite ways to subtly detail a wedding cake! We then kept the base tier lovely and sleek with a shimmering satin lustre effect.

We loved the pretty yet carefree decor the couple added to the hall! Since we first met Sally and Andrew for their consultation we remembered them as being a fun couple. That 100% shined through at the venue from the gigantic balloon, relaxed flowers, quirky afternoon tea and hand written order of the day mirror. Of course, we took a few snaps of on the day! The florals were all locally grown by Wold’s Way Flowers in Scarborough and arranged by the bride and groom!

As for the wedding favours we created watercolour painted hexagon cookies featuring the happy couple’s initials in gold letters. These were alongside heart biscuits with golden streaks and hand-piped ‘love’ across each! We also baked and decorated smaller accompanying cookies in mini hexagons and mini hearts.

Bespoke Snow Globe Themed Cookies for Olivia Burton London!

Bespoke cookies for Olivia Burton London by Juniper Cakery

How gorgeous are these winter themed cookies we designed and created exclusively for Olivia Burton London? Based on their snow globe inspired watch collection each cookie is a sparkling holiday motif from a gold streaked candy cane to an intricate snowflake! Perfect sweet treats for the frosty and cosy season!

Olivia Burton snow globe biscuits by Juniper Cakery

How pretty is that gingerbread gift tag cookie! Each dove grey iced biscuit featured a hand piped holiday message from Olivia Burton in a fun on-trend script / hand-written inspired font as well as a slip of satin ribbon through each.

Above is a quick shot of all the little beauties packaged and nestled in their pretty silver tins with shimmering iridescent shred. We love this part of any large bespoke project… seeing everything in their final stages of packaging! Everything always looks so fabulous. We’re such insane package and wrap freaks that everything has to be perfect. We even weigh out any filling like poly peanuts or shred so it’s all equal.

Cute snow glove themed Olivia Burton cookies by Juniper Cakery

One of our favourites were the lovely and seasonal white, grey and gold snow globes in each silver tin. When Olivia Burton London explained their collection ideas we instantly felt so festive! The snow globe idea was such an exciting shape and cookie to work with. We looked at their collection (we also own 4 Olivia Burton London watches!) and kept the colours simple. We toyed with rose gold hues based on one of their snow globe watches, but this changed to a gorgeous classic gold to reflect the interior of their flagship store in Covent Garden!

Whimsical Pastel Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Cake and Treats!

Adorable pink pastel unicorn birthday cake by Juniper Cakery

Is it bad that we’re both in our 30s and we STILL get excited at anything unicorn related? No? Thought so! This adorable pastel rainbow unicorn birthday cake with silver accents was such a joy to make! We designed and created this two tiered magical beauty along with lots of treats for one lucky 3 year old. It’s hard for us to pin point a favourite part, but that cute rainbow towering up from the top tier is a definite!

Pale rainbow unicorn party cake by Juniper Cakery

Each blush pink tier was finished with pale pink fondant unicorns brushed with a glittering lustre. We added pastel rainbow hair, lavender muzzles, blushed cheeks and silver horns as well as a cheeky smile. We love to make every unicorn cake a little different so we change or tweak things like colours, smiles… even legs. For these we added in etched legs and made the hair a little more sleek and stylised.

Rainbow unicorn fact cookies by Juniper Cakery

To match the little cuties on the cake were lots of circular unicorn face cookies with pastel rainbow hair! These were all in our Madagascan vanilla flavour studded with flecks of vanilla bean. We added edible blush to each unicorn’s face and painted the horns with silver.

To add shape and interest we crafted 3D glittering clouds for each tier to sit alongside the flat clouds. Clouds instantly add an amazing whimsical value to cakes and treats. They’re obviously perfect for rainbows and unicorns too!

This cake was for Libby’s third birthday so we added a starry number 3 on top perched next to a fluffy fondant cloud and bright rainbow. Painted in a glistening edible silver this carried on the theme of the entire cake especially as the birthday girl LOVES stars.

Along with this super fun birthday cake were lots of cute little treats… like these pastel rainbow cookies that also match the cute unicorn face cookies! In a bubblegum pink, lavender, mint, yellow and blush pink they match perfectly with the fun rainbow nestled on top of the cake. Obviously, we added a little sparkle with a hint of edible lustre!

To match the cake we also created sweet unicorn cupcakes swirled with a rainbow buttercream of pink, soft yellow and mint colours! Each featured a fondant unicorn face smiling and ready to party! Each match the unicorn cookies and figures perched on the cake. They even have pretty blushed cheeks.

We even created lots of mint green dinosaur inspired cupcakes with blushed cheeks and white sprinkles! We nestled each fondant character into a Madagascan vanilla swirled cupcake!

And for the grown-ups at the party were these chic little cupcakes in matching silver cases! Swirled with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and finished with dainty blush macarons flecked with edible silver paint splatters they’re the perfect treats for parents! We filled each macaron with our pink champagne ganache… a white chocolate filling with a reduced Moët pink champagne.

Just another (and closer) shot of one of the pink champagne macaron topped cupcakes… because it’s just so pretty right? These are such popular treats for the soon ensuing dinner party season too!

This entire collection of unicorn and rainbow inspired party treats was ridiculously fun for us to make! When everything begins to come together it’s magical seeing all those cute little unicorn faces. We hope little Libby and all her party guests had an amazing time celebrating her birthday!

Benefit Cosmetics x Juniper Cakery: Festive Benefit Cookies!

Benefit Cosmetics and Juniper Cakery collaboration

This fun giveaway has ended now, but we loved making these pretty cookies so much that we thought we’d share it via our blog! For the holiday season we collaborated with Benefit Cosmetics to create a cute Mrs Claus cupcake tutorial for everyone to re-create at home. Alongside this we also held a giveaway. One lucky #Benebabe won a set of our exclusive Benefit cookies along with Benefit Cosmetics’ complete BeneBrow collection via Instagram! Amazing right?

Exclusive festive cookies for Benefit Cosmetics!

Cute Benefit Cosmetics cookies by Juniper Cakery

Our brief for these cookies was… Benefit, pink and festive! No problem! We sketched out ideas for gingerbread house inspired Benefit shops with different doors, windows and Christmas decorations. In the end we decided to keep it simple with a snow laden roof (glittery… of course) studded with snowflake sprinkles, hot pink doors, silver windows, a little holly and vintage inspired shop awning hand-piped with the Benefit logo! When it came to colour we stuck to the classic Benefit colours of pink and silver!

Of course we didn’t stop there! This pretty Benefit parlour needed some added sweetness! Sticking with our festive theme we created a large white snowflake adorned with sequin sprinkles and glistening mini snowflakes. For a little added glam we painted edible lustre on top. We then baked and decorated some fun gingerbread snowball cookies! These were simple small circles iced with white fondant and decorated with more mini snowflakes and sequin confetti sprinkles. Finally, we created some glittery star shaped cookies painted with edible silver (totally inspired by their vintage-esque packaging) and indented with tiny star shapes! Nice and sparkly… perfect for the holiday season.

Flavour wise, we used our classic go-to gingerbread cookie recipe which we LOVE. It just isn’t Christmas until these are made. Plus, they’re the perfect festive cookie to have with a huge mug of hot chocolate or seasonal flavoured coffee!
