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!

How cute is this cake? It’s such a fabulous shade of blush pink which was 100% inspired by Benefit’s The POREfessional: Pearl Illuminating Face Primer colour. The rest of the colour palette for this beauty incorporates Benefit’s packaging from their glistening silver brow pencils to their love of warm pinks!

We decorated our end design in the reindeer cake tutorial with sprinkles, snowflakes and macarons. You can re-create our little arrangement or add chocolate truffles, candy or even fresh roses? Glittering star shaped cookies, chocolate jewels and even lollipops sound amazing too! If you’re feeling super adventurous (or brave) then a cute drip down one side and homemade candy canes would be so impressive.

Once your own reindeer cake is all dressed up and ready for party season it’s time to fill your phone with 1,000 photos of it! Hope you enjoyed creating one gorgeously pink cake! From us and Benefit Cosmetics have an amazing holiday season!

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!

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.
