Help us to say ‘Thank You’ to our Key Workers with Cake! Nominate a Key Work for a Cake Delivery

It was a very sad decision for us to have to close the Cakery due to the recent Corona Virus outbreak but we know its the best thing to do for the safety on our staff and customers. Despite having to close a lot of essential local businesses and services have continued and we’ve been so moved by the hard work that others are putting in to keep us all safe, to keep us fed and keep essential services running. The people of the UK and the local community are doing amazing things and we are so thankful!

Before closing we had some requests to provide cakes for NHS workers at Warwick Hospital and were told that these really helped to lift spirits..since then we have had more requests come in so we felt that the best thing to do was to open up the service to all key workers in the community so that we can share the joy to more people who deserve a treat. We are continuing to provide cakes to the Warwick Hospital teams through The Barn Kitchen which is an amazing service providing deliveries of all sorts of food to NHS workers and vulnerable people throughout Warwickshire.

We are now taking nominations for deliveries of cakes to key workers so if you know someone that deserves a treat for their hard work, get in touch. We are taking nominations on social media (Instagram, Facebook ) or you can send us an email: gemma@thecakeryleamington.co.uk

All deliveries must be to a public building or home address  within 10 miles of The Cakery in Leamington town centre and we must be able to make the delivery contactless. We cannot take deliveries inside the building so please keep this in mind when nominating.

“Naked” Wedding Cakes – The Latest Wedding Cake Trend – Updated 2019

The traditional wedding cake is typically iced in white or ivory icing, decorated with intricate details of flowers and swags, but the latest trend has given wedding cakes a serious make-under, perfect if your not a fan of icing.

Introducing the “naked” wedding cake – a cake without an outer layer of icing or buttercream, leaving the texture of the sponge cake layers to be revealed. The cakes have a fuss-free, rustic feel which will appeal to brides opting for a rustic, shabby chic wedding theme or those who are just looking for an alternative to the traditional iced wedding cake.

Chef Christina Tosi is credited with starting the trend and apparently the aim was to show off the delicious inside of the cake instead of covering it with a fancy icing exterior.

Some different naked wedding cake examples

Naked cakes can be decorated with a variety of alternatives to traditional icing – fruit, berries, fresh flowers or drizzled frosting are popular choices. They can also come in a variety, or even a mixture of flavours. A cute cake topper can finish off a naked cake nicely – we love the cute bunting on this cake by The Cakery…

Something old, something new, something gold, something blue…

Blue and gold is one of the latest trends for wedding cakes and looks to be still very popular for 2019. As the traditional rhyme says, the bride should always have something blue for her wedding day…why not make it the wedding cake with a stunning blue cake with metallic details.

Choose from something simple and classic with shiny gold coating…
