Elegant Blush Watercolour and Peony Christening Cake!

Pretty blush pink wash cake with gold accents by Juniper Cakery

How pretty is this peony Christening cake? It’s perfect for a stylish party! We create a lot of different Christening cakes from semi-naked beauties finished with fresh roses to super cute designs adorned with fondant animals. All utterly fun, beautiful and unique to each special event. Every now and again it’s lovely to concentrate on a chic idea like this blush wash 2 tier with gold accents! We love how this design incorporates two gorgeous trends… subtle watercolour washes and a sparkling metallic! And who doesn’t love a luxurious touch of gold now and again?

One of our favourite parts of this peony Christening cake is Lily’s name! It’s striking and also pretty luxe too. The text was created 100% by hand (and with no template or guide). We used a caramel tinted fondant rolled out into a long and even ‘rope’. Quickly mapped out where we wanted it to sit and then went to work gently attaching to the front of the iced tier. It was then hand-painted with edible gold. Creating a scrolling text like this can be a bit stressful as you only get one attempt to get it perfect!

The gorgeous gold was carried on throughout the cake with the shimmering accent along the bottom tier. We wanted this to mimic the blush wash so it was layered on in carefree-style streaks. Gold was also used for the peony leaves and pistils.

The open peony itself is a pretty blush pink with fluffy stamens and hand-painted gold centres. We perched it angled upward onto the edge of the cake to give a lightweight feel to it. We then added long tapered gold leaves for extra height. If you know us then you’ll know we love to add a little height to our cakes… and foliage (real or sugar) is the perfect way to do this!

This was such a stunning cake for us to make. It’s always hard for us to see a cake leave us, however, they need to fulfil their party destiny! We hope little Lily and her guests enjoyed an amazing day!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Pretty pink and rose gold Hen Party cake by Juniper Cakery

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!

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!

Adorable pink fondant unicorn by Juniper Cakery

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!

Rose Garden Rococo Wedding Cake at Saltmarshe Hall!

Blush Rose Garden Rococo Wedding Cake at Saltmarshe Hall by Juniper Cakery

As soon the lovely Lauren & Liam decided upon a floral filled version of this Rococo wedding cake we created for a photoshoot we couldn’t wait to make it! What’s not to love? Blush and dusky pinks! Gold acanthus leaf frame! Our large sugar roses! How amazing does this pretty design look at the stunning Saltmarshe Hall?

Rose garden inspired Rococo wedding cake!

Three blush pink tiers featuring a gold painted acanthus leaf frame adorned with two large carefree sprays of sugar flowers. Florals include small open white peonies, light green rose leaves, eucalyptus sprigs, crisp white damson blossoms and large sugar roses inspired by the Quicksand and Fifth Avenue varieties! Each flower, leaf and berry was hand crafted then carefully arranged onto the cake. We always plan out placements of blooms with a few sketches and rough drafts beforehand.

One of our favourite features on this Rococo wedding cake are the hand-piped golden bees! We had wanted to pipe edible bees for some time now. We sketched out methods from how to create the wings to getting an elegant yet stylised shape to the body. Each bee is piped onto the sides of the cake nestled underneath the sugar flowers. We used royal icing in a stiffer consistency and added each section of the bee in separate stages! Finally, a little gold added a touch of glamour.

Ornate frame cakes are still pretty popular. They’re such a fantastic way to work in a little opulence! Acanthus leaves are stunning motifs in a lot of historic architecture. This makes them perfect for adding detail to a show-stopping cake! They’re also amazing paired with florals too! We used several fondant acanthus leaves to create the golden frame at the centre of this pretty design. Finally, we hand painted each leaf gold before adding smaller gold elements (berries and bees) amongst the sugar flowers.

We delivered and set-up this beauty at the lovely Saltmarshe Hall. After days, and sometimes weeks, of working on cakes it’s always insanely refreshing to deliver and visit some of the amazing venues our couples book! Saltmarshe was an amazing hall tucked away into the countryside and the perfect place for a gorgeous wedding! Congratulations to Lauren and Liam!
