A taste of Summer

If you are looking for an alternative cake for your wedding, rather than the more traditional cakes on offer then we have the perfect solution. This vanilla sponge packed with strawberries and cream will definitely set your pulse racing.

Maria & mark chose this cake for their summer wedding here in Spain and as temperatures soared up into the late 30’s it was the perfect choice to be served as dessert at their wedding breakfast.

The heart shaped cake was set on display whilst we made a back up cake hidden away for cutting only, but no less delicious….Yum! We even remembered to cater for those celiac guests too..

Anureet & Ross  – June 12th  2017

Anureet and Ross held their wedding celebrations at a local venue here in Velez-Malaga, the beautiful ‘Jardines de Trapiche’. I initially met up with Anureet in January earlier this year to discuss her wedding plans and took her along to meet Jose Luis, the owner here at  Jardines de Trapiche.  Anureet fell in love with the venue and immediately made the decision to hold her wedding reception there. – January now seems like such a long time ago!

Here are some highlights of Anureets day followed by the lovely comments I received to say ‘Thank you’

…and finally the lovely message of thanks received this week from Anureet.

Hi susan!

Just wanted to pop you a message to say thank you so very much for our wonderful cake.  We had the best comments about it and how amazing it looked and especially how delicious it tasted.  I’ve attached some pictures for you to have a look at too!!

 Also, I just wanted to say an extra thank you to say thanks for your help in everything else.  Without your help back in January we would not have found the wonderful Trapiche venue that people have honestly said was the best wedding they ever went to.  There were comments about how beautiful it was were and how well kept it all was.

 Thank you once again. We love Torre del Mar and have already said that we will be returning so ill be sure to pop you a message when we do.

I would just like to take this opportunity to wish Anureet & Ross all the very best as they begin their lives together as Mr & Mrs Bagnall.

 

 

 

Pallet Versatility !

Getting Creative with Pallets

Getting creative with pallets may sound crazy but it is not as difficult as you may think. There is never a shortage of pallets going spare in this area so we always have plenty of ‘stock on hand’ to work our magic on. All it takes is a little time, patience, the usual woodworking tools and a splash of paint or wood stain.

Over the past months we have created a huge selection of wedding props, cake stands and signage for various weddings. As our show room and store room are now full to bursting I think it is time to slow down on our pallet projects for a little while and instead share some of our favourite pallet creations with you.

Charlie & Jo – Wedding June 5th 2017

Corresponding via email with Charli for some months prior, to finalise her wedding cake design and details had all been quite straight foward. The cake tasting only took place a week before their wedding, meeting Jo & Charli for the first time was an absolute pleasure, they were such a lovely couple. The flavours Charli & Jo chose for their cake were our delicious coconut sponge with a lime cream for one tier and a red velvet and raspberry for the other tiers.

The wedding was due to take place at Cortijo de Los Caballos a rare gem of a venue – a former equestrian centre oozing with plenty of character, lush gardens and charm. Charli was keen for her cake to compliment her wedding venue thus decided upon a rustic floral four tier creation, decorated with buttercream rather than fondant icing, trimmed with fresh roses and plenty of greenery.

9 Reasons Why?

9 Reasons why you should choose a professional cake maker to make your wedding cake for you

O.K. so you may be managing your budget and have decided to make your own cake, but be very careful should you decide you want to choose a d.i.y. wedding cake. Here are 9 reasons why you should consider choosing a professional cake maker to make your cake for you:-

1.) Where are you planning on making the cake, do you have ample oven, fridge and work space?

2.) Does the kitchen have a ‘Sanidad Certificate? Most hotels will not allow cakes to be consumed on their premises if the cakes are made in a kitchen without one!

3.) Who will deliver and set the cake up?

4.) Can you manage cake making, decorating and delivering in the extreme Spanish heat with all your other wedding preparations?

5.) Sourcing your supplies as sugarcraft supplies are not readily available in supermarkets here like they are in the UK.

6.) Does your cake need and if yes, do you have a cake stand?

7.) Don’t forget cakes that sit on top of one another need to be supported internally with dowels so the cake does not collapse – are you confident you can do this?

8.) Do you have guests with specific dietary requirements or allergies that need to be catered for?

9.) Do you have enough time in your hectic pre wedding schedule to devote to cake making and decorating, after all this is not a quick fix option?

Are you confident that you can really create a wedding cake showstopper or will it be more a case of wedding cake disaster?  Think very carefully before embarking upon this challenge it may seem like a good idea at the start but it may well be a case of false economy and turn out to be a very costly, stressful & disappointing exercise.
