Its a little..Cheesy

Wedding Cheese Cakes

You could say that we have had a pretty cheesy weekend..as our wedding cheese cakes have certainly been a popular choice over the past few days.

They are a great idea if you are looking for something to feed your guests with later on in the evening when they are feeling that bit peckish – saving you the additional cost of paying for a late night snack!

Don’t be put off by thinking that a cheese cake will not compliment your wedding style. Our cheese towers can be decorated with fruit, roses, greenery, grapes, hessian, lace, the list is endless – check out this link to our cheeses page on our website http://www.weddingcakesinspain.co.uk/wedding-cheese-cakes.html  and find a huge selection of cheese cake styles and decoration ideas.

We offer an interesting cheese selection for you to choose from with something to suit most tastes:-

Wensleydale with cranberries or with mango & orange

Creamy Manchego Infused with Rosemary – this creamy mature is packed with flavour, the distinctive rosemary infusion is exquisite.

Various Traditional Manchego cheeses. These cheeses are very similar to an English cheddar ranging from a mild and creamy to the more mature extremely palatable manchegos.

Danish Blue Cheese this strong smelly yet melt in your mouth cheese is not for the faint hearted.

English Stilton Another strong smelly cheese – a great option for cheese lovers

Brie This is a soft creamy off-white or yellow cheese with an edible rind, best eaten at room temperature so the cheese is soft and squidgy.

Some recent cheesy highlights for you to savour !

 

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.

Sarah & Raymond chose Salduna Beach, Marbella as their wedding location where guests sat so close to the beach the sea was almost tickling their toes!

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.

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.

ktable2

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.

Ksign2

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.

 

Easter Bunnies

Buttercream decorated wedding cakes quite simply make a statement all on their own of their own – ‘Eat me’.

This understated yet classic cake had a contrasting interior of sharp raspberries alongside chunks of sweet white chocolate – creating a marriage made of moist sponge. This was then covered with lots of delicious buttercream from top to toe…mmmm to die for !
