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.

Flowers by The Wedding and Flower Boutique in Lincolnshire

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!

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!

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?).

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.

Event styling by Cherry Williams Party Hire

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!

Shimmering Pearl Wedding Cake with Fresh Roses!

Piped Pretty Pearl Wedding Cake with Fresh Blooms by Juniper Cakery

Our sweet hand-piped pearl wedding cake is such a popular design. We make every single cake as bespoke as we can for each couple, which makes this cake so adaptable! It’s the perfect design for a country wedding with fresh florals nestled into a hidden base. (Or for an urban chic reception bold sugar flowers with subtle geometric shapes can add an industrial luxe look.) This three tiered beauty was the centrepiece at Lisa and Steven’s wedding at the pretty Georgian / modern Dunedin Country House in Patrington, East Yorkshire!

The gorgeous large blush and white roses with gypsophila were from The Flower Shop out in Hedon (unfortunately, we’re not able to supply any website or social media links). For this style cake we don’t push the florals into the base of a cake. Instead, we build the cakes onto a sturdy hidden base which we arrange florals into once tiered and dowelled.

Pearl Wedding Cake with Fresh Roses!

How pretty is the set-up at Dunedin Country House? It’s a Georgian country home with hints of modern interior. Cue mirrored console tables, botanical detailed door plates, and chandeliers. We have quite a few orders for Dunedin House this year so we’ll make sure to get a few photographs of the finer details!

The entire cake then featured pearls that are clustered from the top which become sparse towards the base. The pearls are hand-piped individually before they are painted with a shimmering edible lustre. This always takes a lot of time and patience! The pearls are a nice way to add interest and texture to a cake without going overboard allowing the focus to stay on the floral crown underneath.

This elegant cake was delivered and set up for Lisa and Steven’s wedding on a gorgeously sunny and bright Bank Holiday Weekend. Congratulations!
