I have been working on some new designs this week, experimenting with Chocolate curls and buttercream. Below you will see my sugar roses on top of an extra thick buttercream cake. Beautiful wild flowers from my garden on a white chocolate cake and paper tassels on a buttercream cake.
I spent this week preparing and making a three tier naked wedding cake. The sponge was syrup soaked vanilla, filled with vanilla bean buttercream and strawberry jam. The cake was decorated with real lavender, roses, fresh cherries and a dusting of icing sugar. I can see the appeal of the ‘naked cake,’ there is something so effortlessly beautiful about a traditional sponge cake left bare, decorated with natures finest. Equally delicious and beautiful in its appearance this cake has nothing to hide. A new favourite of mine, I look forward to my next naked order!
The past couple of weekends have been filled with gorgeous summer cupcakes! I baked over 300 cupcakes and I love nothing more than seeing the finished result.
Last weekend I made colourful hydrangea cupcakes which were set in a rustic converted barn in North Wales, not far from Anglesey. The tables were placed with beautiful wild flowers and the brides bouquet was a gorgeous mix of wild colours.
This weekend I made a tower of ice cream cupcakes. The 99 flakes were coated with a raspberry sauce and the top cake was lemon flavoured with the sweetest little engraved bunting. This wedding was set on a farm in North Wales and the bride and groom decided to go for a village fete theme, which worked perfectly. Three large marquees were filled with handmade touches and gorgeous personal detail. It was a joy to be part of such a beautiful wedding.
It’s been a busy week in the Jane Rose cake kitchen here on Anglesey.
Most of my time has been taken up making blossom cupcakes. Large open sugar petals sat on top of soft pearl icing to create a beautiful vintage feel. I made a variety of pom pom closed petals and the more open elegant flower. Continue reading →
This week I have been busy making Orchids in the Anglesey cake kitchen…
Orchid cupcakes tinted with a purple dust and a simple off white wedding cake decorated with delicate white Orchids. The cake itself is classic and elegant; the cupcakes compliment it perfectly and are wonderfully versatile. Displayed either on a cupcake tower, as part of a sweet table or as wedding favours, they work in many ways. Continue reading →
