Themed Wedding Cakes

football-shirts-wedding-cakesCreating a themed wedding cake which is personal to the bride and groom is always so much fun. Last week saw just one of these cakes looking absolutely stunning in the Jasper Carrot Suite, which has amazing views of Birmingham City Football grounds.


The wedding cake was inspired by the couples passion of football with their teams being represented by football shirt cakes. In between the two shirt cakes a delicious football lemon flavoured cake and centre a tasty chocolate flavoured football pitch cake.


On top of the pitch cake stood three of our handmade sugar figurines of the bride and groom in their football kits and the vicar.


This was a perfect wedding cake design for the couples special day and we are sure it is still a talking a great talking point!

Wedding Cakes And Venues

It is always exciting to complete a beautiful wedding cake design and even more exhilarating when the wedding cake is set up at the chosen venue. It is so important for a wedding cake designer to consider the venue when designing a cake in order to ensure the wedding cake is the centre piece of the reception. Every now and then, the venue is just so wonderfully it makes designing the cake absolute bliss!


One such wedding venue is the incredible stunning Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel. The 16th century hall has been recently restored and developed into an absolutely splendid hotel. The hotel invites you to indulge in its fabulous surrounding and is set within 10 acres of glorious walled gardens.


Only just open as a wedding venue we are sure we will be regularly visiting this fine wedding and hotel venue.
