When the customer wants "a cake like that one", it's an insight into their style, theme and personality. But stop for a second...it's your big day, and no other cake should look exactly like yours. By all means have a cake 'in the style of...' but add some flair, and make it your own. Whenever I'm asked to make "a cake like that one", I take inspiration from it and make it into the best version for my customer The result is priceless - happy customers, a great tasting cake and a fabulous design suited to the couple and their theme/event. Obviously there are times when you just fall in love with THE cake, and that's fine too; just something to think about when deciding on what cake you want..
What a show! If any of you were able to attend, I'm sure you'd agree. So much inspiration under one roof, it can be difficult to decide what to do; so here's a simple idea for choosing a wedding cake that's right for you. Take inspiration from your wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses. The colour, detailing and fabric more often than not can be translated into decoration on a cake. For example, the colours showcased on the bridal catwalk were mainly blush pink, ivory, cool pastels and metallic. Add that to your cake. Do you have beading, lace details or embellishments on your dress? Why not have these taken in to the cake design? It's a simple idea, but very effective in achieving a seamless wedding theme.
"I love being creative and all things cake, so it made sense to put the two to work. It's a great feeling to see the joy on my customers faces when they receive my cakes. It makes it all the more special." - Bianca
