Weddings 2017

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.

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.

Lois and Nat celebrated their wedding in the lush tropical gardens of Casa De Los Bates yesterday, a charming venue bursting with character just a 20 min drive from Nerja.

Lois adopted a shabby chic look for her wedding and chose a semi naked cake to compliment her wedding theme. The cake was decorated with fresh raspberry ripple fluffy roses and babys breath.:-

Stunning Beach Weddings

Beach Wedding Venues

So,… you’re getting married in Spain and are now deciding upon your venue..mmmm choices , choices, choices… as there are truly so many stunning venues to choose from over here, ranging from luxury private villas, historical haciendas to charming cortijos ..and although I have visited some breathtaking locations I feel that if you are going to celebrate your wedding out here in Spain, then choose a venue that you will be unable to have in the U.K. – A beach side wedding!

What could be a better way to say your ‘I do’s’ as your guests silently sip their sangria whilst soaking up the sun. There is simply no other place within such a short distance from the U.K. that can offer these dream locations. With a choice of flights from any number of UK airports you can hop on a flight and be here within 3 hours, perfect!

Let us style the venue for you, by opting for one of our cake & decoration packages that we can tailor to suit your chosen beach wedding location.  Visit our website http://www.weddingcakesinspain.co.uk for ideas and inspiration.

Below, – A snapshot of some of the fabulous beach side venues available in Southern Spain.

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.

Natural Wedding 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.
