My style is naturally minimalist but I have always adored the exquisite beading of Jenny Packham bridal gowns which are simultaneously decorative and yet elegantly understated. For some time I have wanted to translate this into a cake design and with one of my cake resolutions of 2015 being to embrace more decorative elements a recent week off gave me the perfect opportunity.

The trend for rustic wedding cakes is continuing with ‘naked’ cakes still making a regular appearance at 2015 weddings. Here at Cove Cake Design we have been putting our own twist on natural styles…take a look at our favourites!

Since becoming a cake decorator I have developed a slight obsession with cake stands which has in recent times surpassed that of my love of a good handbag. Rather than hiding handbags, I now retort ‘Oh, that old cake stand!’ if my husband remarks on a new one. The majority of my stands have been purchased on the online treasure trove that is Borrowed Blue Boutique.

I have had the pleasure of contributing in my own small way to this project by regularly donating the results of my love of baking, recipe tests and photo shoots.

For my first post I am going back to what started me on this journey, a love of baking, by sharing with you an easy yet striking cake recipe, Lemon and Rosemary Bundt.
