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…

Amazing Cake Creations

Some incredibly talented cake-bakers were showing at the Cake Decorating & Baking Show at the Excel Centre in London last week. With designs ranging from dragons to tigers, crabs to KFC buckets, there were some unbelievably realistic works of art – all made from edible cake and icing! It’s amazing what can be done with icing.

Here’s some of our favourite cake creations from the show.
