Choosing Wedding Cake Flavours

/
With many of our 2016 brides and grooms in the process of choosing their wedding cake flavours I thought I would write a little post to take a peek inside our cakes and offer some tips on flavour choices!

Styling and Displaying your Wedding Cake

/
The display and styling of your wedding cake is something that I ask all my clients to consider. After many months of work, it is worth making that last little effort to ensure your cake is a stunning centrepiece and a talking point for your guests.

Clementine Cake with Star Anise and Cinnamon, Cranberry Curd Meringue Buttercream and Pistachio

/
With Christmas around the corner we are inundated with images and recipes for all sorts of delicious baking so I thought I would add to the mix with this seasonal spiced Clementine Cake with Cranberry. I think it looks so beautiful with the subtle orange and pink tones from the clementines and cranberries further contrasted with some green pistachio macarons! It has a lovely moist texture and paired with the silky meringue buttercream, would make a lovely light alternative to some traditionally heavier seasonal cakes.

Antonio Riva-Inspired Blush Copper Design

/
My latest wedding cake design was inspired by the stunning gowns of Italian designer Antonio Riva. Having stumbled upon his work I couldn't but be captivated by the sharp silhouettes and bold modern detailing.

Botanical Glamour Styled Shoot

I was thrilled to have been approached by Lovebird Designs to design a cake for a styled shoot at the beautiful Kilshane House in Tipperary.

Chai Spiced Apple Brown Sugar Cake, Brown Butter Icing and Blackberry Jam

/
I have been experimenting for some time with apple cake recipes in a quest for one that has a clear autumnal flavour, is traditionally moist, but also cuts cleanly, a stringent requirement when making wedding and party cakes. Whether this Chai Spiced Apple Cake makes it to my menu or not I adored the flavour combination, and after much interest when I posted this picture on social media I thought I would share the recipe!

Caramelised White Chocolate

/
I can't remember where exactly I first came across caramelised white chocolate but having heard of it needless to say it was something that I had to experiment with. I mean the words alone: caramel, white chocolate, caramelised white chocolate...what could there be not to love!

The Art of Cake

/
I have recently been organising and decorating my little home cake studio and had been in search of some art to adorn the walls. Fortuitously, I came across the beautiful work of watercolour artist Enya of Enya's Art of Patisserie through Instagram and fell in love with her pretty paintings of cakes, cupcakes and french patisserie. Turning cake art into actual art..how exciting!
