We’re always insanely honoured to have our work featured in Wedding Cakes magazine. The standard of all the creations chosen are always so high and it’s amazing to see our designs within it’s pages. We kick started 2017 with four of our wedding cakes dotted throughout the spring issue. To grab a copy you can head over to the Squires Kitchen shop, find it on the magazine shelves of most good supermarkets or book stores in the UK, or purchase a digital copy via iTunes!
This three tiered beauty can be found in their spring appropriate ‘Pastel Hues’ editorial over on page 70. We loved creating this cake. It was built on a sturdy polystyrene base so that all those gorgeous sugar flowers (handmade by us) could be nestled in and look as though they were bursting from underneath the cake. Florals include… blush open peonies, large white roses (to represent the Bride’s Yorkshire roots), eucalyptus leaves, hydrangeas, glittering Brunia berries, white ranunculus blooms, pale green rose leaves and silver ferns (to represent the Groom’s New Zealand roots).
This design incorporates such a great balance of nature and glamour for us. Each tier is edged with Rococo architecture inspired leaf mouldings with delicate stylised ferns along the bottom tier and top tier. The middle tier is surrounded by curved acanthus leaves that sit above a separator filled with gilded Dogwood blossoms. Extra height and drama comes in the form of our large white sugar roses perched onto the top tier. Nestled in amongst the florals are hunter green leaves, gold berries, and more golden acanthus leaves!
Created for an opulent wedding reception this grande 4 tier centrepiece featured lots of golden elements such as wisteria inspired lace and architectural mouldings, gilded blossoms and our popular gold painted sequin effect! For an extra touch of drama deep red roses were arranged around the cake’s base with our signature open peonies perched on the top and middle tiers. Other handmade sugar florals include… gilded Dogwood blossoms, white wisteria, gold berries and shimmering peony leaves.
We loved this regal cake with it’s stylish and romantic colour palette, flurry of sugar flowers (roses, golden leaves, large bloom blush pink roses, pale green rose leaves and stephanotis blossoms)! Each tier also features ornate gold painted mouldings from the large cartouches used to create the legs on the faux cake stand base to the rose festooned swags on the middle and top tiers.
