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!

Grand White on White Wedding Cake at Rise Hall!

White on white wedding cake at Rise Hall by Juniper Cakery

We get ridiculously excited about every single cake we make. Sometimes, though, a mix of pretty decorative techniques and an elegant colour palette means that we count the days until the big day! This white on white 5 tiered beauty is definitely one of those designs. Plus, just just look at that gorgeous muted grey and gold wall in the ballroom at Rise Hall!

With a heavily fondant frilled bottom tier, ornate damask design and shimmering lustre effects with an acanthus leaf frame, champagne gold piped monogram and a corsage of bright white florals this cake relies on a balance of decorative elements to make it’s statement. We love every single part of it.

Our ruffles are pretty popular and while they are ridiculously laborious they’re worth it in the end. They add the perfect feel of movement and softness too. The next tier mimics historic flocked wallpaper with a glimmering lustre base underneath the royal icing damask. Then the third had to show off a bit more lustre! Seriously, we would probably lustre every cake if we could.

Finally the top two tiers. A sleek white plain tier embellished with a white acanthus leaf frame surrounding champagne gold piped initials of the happy couple! We sketched out a few fonts before manipulating them to fit the space we needed. Then we added some flourish to the ends and tested placements. After that we piped everything free hand before painting in a soft glittering champagne gold edible paint.

Ruffles upon ruffles! Our frilly fondant detailing takes hours to do. We create them out of thinly rolled out fondant in 6-8″ strips and ruffled them by hand individually. We love adding texture to a cake and edible frills are definitely one of the best ways to do this.

The pretty florals were kept simple for this cake. Large billowing yet cupped white peonies with ruffled centres framed one side of the top tier. Then accents of white and champagne gold dotted orchids and tiny hydrangeas were added to the cake.
