Our Occasion Cakes
It isn't just birthdays that call for a special cake - lots of special occasions call for that special tasty treat, from baby showers to leaving parties, we can cater for any event.
Our cakes are all bespoke and very personal, so there are no 'standard' designs for any of these life events - see the gallery for some of our more straightforward designs from past years, but you can also take inspiration from some of our themed cakes, for example retirement cakes often feature golf in the design (!) and an engagement cake may be themed around where and how the proposal happened.
Here are some examples of the special events we are regularly asked to make cakes for, and see our gallery for ideas, or get in touch if you have a unique idea for a design you would like.
- Baby Showers - whether it is pink or blue (or a surprise!) we can make beautiful cakes for the increasingly popular event of a baby shower. Building blocks, booties, babygrows and bottles can all feature, or you may want to go for a more quirky design like a baby bump.
- Hen & Stag Parties - perhaps the less said about some of these designs the better, but let's just say we can make any design to suit your hen or stag do.
- Wedding Anniversaries - it's always nice to make these very personal to the couple, we often make figures sitting on the cake for wedding anniversaries, with a silver, gold, ruby or pearl theme to the cake depending on the anniversary being celebrated. Number cakes also work well for anniversaries.
- Christenings - an open bible design is very popular for Christenings and Communions, or a simple cake with a message and a cross in a chosen colour scheme.
- Graduations - we are experts at crafting scrolls and mortar boards from icing from all the graduation themed cakes we have made! We can also tailor the cake to suit the particular subject from Dentistry to Drama.
- Retirement - these are often themed around what the lucky retiree will be doing in their retirement, such as gardeneing, travel or golf.
- Engagement - these can be anything from a quirky nod to the nature of the proposal (for example, the Eiffel Tower), or something with more of a wedding cake look, with flowers or lace.
- Mendhi - we have made lots of cakes for Mendhi parties, with intricate patterns piped on the cake.
