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!

Now time for the treats! For Sally and Andrew’s big day they wanted a selection of blush and ivory macarons streaked with glittering gold! Flavours? Our popular Vanilla & White Chocolate Truffle, Strawberry Milkshake (lovely and fragrant), Cookies & Cream (perfect for kids… and big kids too) and gooey Salted Caramel!

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.

When setting up the cake the couple left a cute golden cake topper which added a bit of extra height! The perfect finish to a sweet and romantic wedding cake! Congratulations Sally and Andrew!

Dramatic Burgundy Semi-Naked Wedding Cake at Rise Hall!

Dramatic berry, burgundy and navy wedding cake by Juniper Cakery at Rise Hall

Isn’t this cake perfect for the darker and moodier months of the year? This burgundy semi-naked cake made one dramatic centrepiece at the lovely Rise Hall. Adorned with striking florals and an elegant take on an autumn palette this beauty was joy to make!

Dramatic berry, burgundy and navy wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

The gorgeous fresh flowers were provided by the lovely Sarah from Floral Lounge. Florals included deep burgundy roses, dainty wax flowers, blue thistles, ruscus leaves, and little white spray roses too! We particularly loved the foliage on the wax flowers as they look almost identical to rosemary springs. We arranged the florals so they were cascading around the cake which always looks so dramatic and luxurious. Can you have too many flowers? (Our vote is for a resounding ‘no’.)

Each tier was smoothed with matching light madagascan vanilla bean infused buttercream. The colour palette on the cake itself needed to be lovely and plain so the flowers could really do their work!

A lot of people ask us about delivering wedding cakes so… For taller cakes we transport them as 3 finished tiers and then stack the additional tiers on site securing the extra tier(s) in place with royal icing or chocolate. It can be a little nerve shattering especially when staff or guests are in the room, but you just need to take a deep breath and get to it.

Chic Pink Ruffle and Silver Sequin Wedding Cake!

Pink ruffle and silver sequin wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

Firstly, we love big wedding cakes. Logistically and delivery-wise they’re super stressful, but in terms of design they’re a dream! 5 plus tiers to play with and get a lovely balance of different styles is a great size… especially for a glam wedding! Here’s a beautiful 5 tiered silver sequin wedding cake we made for the lovely Katie and James who celebrated at the gorgeous Brackenborough Hotel in Lincolnshire.

Silver sequin wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

The top two tiers of this glam cake were decorated with edible silver sequins. These are perfect for an instant bit of glitz! The very top tier was absolutely covered whilst the second to top featured sequins that were more scattered. The initial idea of this cake was based on our peony ruffle wedding cake from a few years back. Pretty florals. Check. Metallic sequins. Check. Luxurious ruffles. Check.

This cake also features one white and grey marbled tier, which we love. Marbling fondant is one of those hold-your-breath moments. It’s so random and hard to control. Plus you always need to use more fondant than usual. We were instantly happy with the way this turned out. It was dark enough to hold it’s own against the ruffles and sequins, but light enough not to be distracting!

Fondant frills finish the bottom tier. Edible ruffles were so popular a couple of years ago… thankfully they’re back on trend. Yes, they take absolutely hours to do… even with the two of us sharing the job, but they’re so worth it. Frills always add an amazing amount of subtle drama to a cake. Plus they look weightless and so soft!

The top two tiers featured edible silver sequins that created ‘toppled’ effect down the larger tier. These looked amazing against the silver backdrop and silver sequin table cloth! Nestled into the tiers were three of our larger sugar flowers. We created a blush pink David Austin style bloom with cupped outer petals, pale yellow stamens and ruffled centre petals. We also crafted a white rose in a relaxed modern style. Finally, perched above the pink textured rose was our signature open peony with fluffy looking white petals and a pistil and stamen centre!

Pink and silver Lincolnshire wedding at The Brackenborough Hotel

This was such a gorgeously pink wedding! We absolutely loved the mini bottles of pink gin left as favours on the table. Seriously, if we were guests these would not have lasted us the night! They were the perfect little gift and particularly handy for topping up a drink or two!

The Brackenborough Hotel in Lincolnshire

Katie and James’ big day was held at the beautiful and serene Brackenborough Hotel out new Louth in Lincolnshire. While delivering every wedding cake is stressful it’s also amazing for us. A lot of British weddings take place at country hotels and manor houses. This means scenic routes, countryside and the instant feeling of relaxation. Brackenborough was no different! It has stunning grounds, an ivy covered front, and views of the rolling English countryside

Now for all the gorgeous flowers! The floral artistry behind Katie and James’ wedding was the work of Jo at The Wedding and Flower Boutique and Jill from Sanctuary Flowers! When we arrived to set-up the cake they were hard at work creating some wonderfully romantic pieces. Each table featured sparkling candelabras filled with blooms. Outside the wedding arch was festooned with pink garden roses (that smelled of pink lemondade)! The top / head table featured a full runner of fresh flowers. Finally, The entrance was decorated with so many pretty florals from a fun donut wall edged with roses to an etched mirror seating chart finished with pink blooms.

We love how this welcome sign features a large arrangement of soft pink and white roses, Astilbe and Veronica flowers. Lots of foliage too which has been growing popular throughout the year! Each wedding we do in 2018 seems to incorporate more wild or carefree leaves and greenery.

One of our current favourite flowers right now are Astilbe (middle right of the above image and top right corner of the photo below). They almost look like fluffy plumes of pink feathers.

White Hydrangea Blossom Wedding Cake at Elsham Hall!

Elsham Hall hydrangea blossom wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

Every so often a white on white cake comes along and we get oh so excited. Colour is wonderful and we are (in case you’ve not noticed) advocates of a good amount of pink, but a fully white wedding cake just exudes elegance! With this in mind here’s a gorgeous white hydrangea blossom wedding cake we created recently for Alice and Matthew’s big day at Elsham Hall in Lincolnshire!

Sugar hydrangeas by Juniper Cakery

Just over 370 white hydrangea blossoms (one of our ultimate favourite flowers) adorn this three tier design. Each hydrangea was rolled, cut, detailed, ruffled and shaped one by one. What’s crazy is that this can take longer than making a lots of huge fully wired and dusted sugar peonies! Once made we left each blossom to set at difference angles. This helps give them a more individual look!

We love how the blossoms resemble a flurry of butterflies settling onto the cake. Perfect for a stylish country hall wedding!

Inside the cake flavours included our own fruit cake (filled with Hennessy Cognac for a nice light boozy treat). Another tier was a zesty Sicilian Lemon filled with homemade lemon curd and infused with Sicilian lemon buttercream. Finally, our Classic Strawberry (our version of a British favourite… Victoria Sponge) was the final tier flavour.

The beautiful florals were by Jo and her fabulous team from The Wedding and Flower Boutique (you can also find them via Instagram here) in Lincolnshire! They’re so elegant and carefree at the same time. We love the crisp white large roses paired with playful daisies alongside soft lisianthus florals and dainty foliage!

These pretty bouquets also featured white veronica flowers nestled amongst the roses, astrantias, and daisies. The beautiful fresh whites of the flowers and vibrant greenery all blended together perfectly for a wonderfully romantic reception. We also loved the wooden elements dotted around from the rustic log slices to the fun wooden crates!

Also, a big thank you and shout out to Elaine at Bride Beautiful, Elsham Hall’s own in-house wedding planner for organising such a pretty wedding! We hope everyone enjoyed an amazing day!

If you’re looking for a stunning country venue in the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire area that’s surrounded by adorable animals and gardens we’d definitely suggest giving Elsham Hall a look! There are cute donkeys, a resident peacock, lots of sheep, beautiful secret garden-like areas… perfect!

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!

Blush semi-naked wedding cake by Juniper Cakery

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?

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!

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?).

Paris themed cookies by Juniper Cakery

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.

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!
