Wedding Cakes – the choice is endless!

Category : Wedding Cakes

It amazes me the questions people ask when you book that big day. I mean, you book the venue, it’s a massive decision, but you make it. And then, well then comes the barrage of questions surrounding tiny (or maybe not so tiny) details.

Have you got a dress? Erm, no we just booked the venue.
Will Chris wear a kilt? Erm, probably, but we only just booked the venue.
Are you going to invite great aunt suzie from Canada? Erm, yeah sure.
What colour scheme are you going for? A colour. Check.

And so, the list goes on. Different strokes for different folks, but apparently I should know the answers to all!

Luckily enough – I know the answer to the wedding cake. Cupcakes by the Scrumptious Baker. Done. Perfect (hopefully!). I knew that one straight away, after we tasted some of Emma’s cupcakes the decision was made. Easy!

But did you know – there is a MASSIVE choice when it comes to wedding cakes. I didnt. I thought it was fruit or sponge. White icing. Flowers or ribbon.

Nowadays in this crazy old world of personalisation – you can have what you want. It may not be traditional, but it can certainly be you!

Here are a few of my favourite options;

  • A cheese wedding cake. Some lovely cheese and crackers with a nice glass of wine, delightful!
  • cheese wedding cake

  • Indulge in yourself with a lifesize wedding cake. It’s like looking in the mirror;
  • lifesize wedding cake

  • A fun novelty cake;
  • Liquoise All Sorts

  • Macaroons anyone?
  • macaroon wedding cake

  • The aforementioned, Cupcake tower;
  • wedding cupcake tower

    They all look yummy! Which one will you chose?

    As always, if there are any I have missed, then please let me know and I will add them to my list.

    And so, it’s time to get ready and go for some cake, I mean lunch.

Our Scrumptious Wedding Cupcake Baker

Category : Scrumptious Baker, Wedding Cakes

The Scrumptious Baker to you and Emma to me.

A friend, I have known Emma for over 10 years. We went to uni together and more recently worked together. And now, well, now we are taking it one step further and Emma will be THE official baker at Our Wedding next October.

What started off as an infrequent lunchtime treat (salad at Greens Gym) soon became a manicly obssessive visit to Costas for cake and coffee (yep, daily, yep, a stone heavier as a result). Then was the incessent searches online for cupcake bakers, their wonderous creations and finding all the little treasures that they choose to decorate their cupcakes with! And there are a lot of cupcake bakers. Some good, others, well others maybe less so.

Emma has been an enthusiastic baker for a while, but of late, she has perfected her techniques and for the most part now delivers greatness.

So, is she up for the challenge of baking and decorating 120 cupcakes, 120 favours and delivering to St Andrews in the Square on time for the wedding at 2pm on the 8th October 2011. I believe so, and I also believe that they will be her best tasting yet (high hopes for you here Emma – no pressure ofcourse!).

Have a look at what Emma has been keeping busy with so far!
