Back to Nature

The Natural ‘Look’

A top trending cake decorating theme that is becoming increasingly popular this year is the more ‘natural’ wedding cake look. Not only is this a hot trend it is also a very cost effective way in which to decorate your cake.

A recent very simple yet beautiful cake we made for Daniel and Amy’s wedding last week highlighted perfectly the way in which local fauna which grows in abundance here together with a little imagination, can create a stunning cake.

If you are planning a wedding cake with this style in mind here are a few tips regarding suitable greenery that can be sourced and used for your cake or even  your venue.

Olive: The olive tree indigenous to this part of Spain is available in abundance. The colour of the leaf is a greyish green which makes this a good choice to decorate a cake providing back ground texture and colour. Harvested at the end of the summer the foliage will be covered with olives really adding character to any decoration.

Eucalyptus: The species of eucalyptus found in Spain provide dark grey/green leaves that provide excellent foliage in flower arrangements and cake decorating.Eucalyptus

Silk Tree: The fern type leaves of this tree are long and elegant providing soft green textured feel.fern

Rosemary: A woody herb with lots of small soft dark green needles adds wonderful texture when used to decorate a cake or cake table. It smells heavenly too.Rosemary

Spanish Broom: This wispy tree like shrub is a great option if you are wanting to fill space, it is ideal for decorating around the base of the cake.broom

Lavender: With or without the purple flower this soft attractive green leaved herb is certainly my choice for cake and venue particularly with its distinct aroma.

Real Weddings – Kiera & Mark

Gold & Blush Cake Treats

Kcake

Silly though it may seem I always get over excited when I am asked to supply a cake & treats table for a wedding, as this is where edible inspiration tends to take over. Given a brief of “lots of pearls, roses, soft pink, gold with a hint of vintage” I set to work.

To begin with I created some pretty bespoke gold bespoke cupcake wrappers and petal cones to add texture and a splash of gold to the table. Added to this were a couple of candlesticks I picked up at a local flee market that I sprayed gold – these added height to the table as well as colour.

The five tier cake was accompanied by one or two other delightful treats. Raspberry & white chocolate cupcakes decorated with vintage sugar broaches, together with choc-chip cake-pops drenched in white chocolate then dusted with gold dust.

‘Love’ was sprinkled over the table using letters and signage…

…and finally my dear friend Shona provided the beautiful fresh roses, and rose petals to add the finishing touch to the table.

Getting Naked

Naked Wedding Cake Styles

Still as popular as ever this year is the naked wedding cake, oozing with fresh fruit, cream and loveliness what is not to like about these cakes? Adding to the naked cake family we have introduced naked cupcakes and their sister cakes- naked minis..Oh so pretty!

If you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, a naked cupcake, again, bares all as it is simply topped off with a choice of available fresh fruit. The naked mini cake is a ‘mini-me’ version of the larger cake.  Choosing either of these options for a wedding cake  are certain to compliment most wedding styles, venues or themes, but most importantly they shout ‘eat me’. You will have very little waste if you opt for these edible delights at your wedding.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Tower

Brownie Tower – Another chocoholic dream cake. To construct this cake we used our traditional brownie recipe, to which we add either nuts, white chocolate chunks, truffles, mini fudge chunks, or even Dime bar. You can experiment with different fillings that you may wish to add..the list really is endless. Once the brownie has been made and allowed to cool it can be cut into manageable portions and stacked carefully on top of one another to create an eye catching brownie stack cake. Once finished you may wish to decorate with pretty flowers, fruit or simply dust with a little icing sugar.

Decadent Fudge Brownie Recipe

INGREDIENTS:  3 Eggs;  250g Sugar;  200g Dark Chocolate; 200g Butter;  110g Plain Flour:  100g of either white chocolate, walnuts, fudge pieces or any other filling you may want to try.

INSTRUCTIONS: Set oven to 180 degrees C fan to heat up.

1.) Line a baking tin (approx 25cm x 20cm) with oven proof paper.

2.) Whisk the sugar and eggs together until creamy and thick.

3.) Melt chocolate and butter in a basin over a pan of hot water.

4.) Mix together the chocolate and the eggs.

5.) Stir in the flour.

6.) Add your nuts or white chocolate etc..

7.) Pour into the baking tin.

8.) Bake close to the top of the oven for 30/35 mins.

9.) Remove from oven, place on a cooling rack and allow to cool before cutting into squares.

10.) If you are planning to construct a brownie tower you may need to make more than one batch of this recipe! Place the brownie squares on a plate and start to build. Once constructed you can then if you wish, dust lightly with icing sugar and decorate with flowers.
