Flowers and Cake

Below you will find a selection of photos from my recent photo shoot at Y Lili Wen Floral Designers in Llanfair Pwll, which is on the island of Anglesey. The photos were taken in Helens beautiful floristry shop. It was an absolute joy working with her.

Fiona Pitts from ‘Sugar for my honey’ blogspot styled and photographed this shoot.

A pink explosion

 

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.

The Rise of the Naked 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!

I love this rustic cake topped with bunting and wild flowers, it would make a perfect addition to a dessert table.

The cake itself was a chocolate and beetroot syrup soaked sponge with a vanilla buttercream icing.

A yummy weekend

A little ‘Thank you’  or ‘Diolch’ to all my lovely customers past, present and future…. Its just a shame that I cant post you a slice!

Diolch Mawr

If you love burgers, here’s the perfect cake for you! These make a wonderful addition to a quirky dessert table. The ‘burger’ was chocolate and beetroot, the ‘bun’ vanilla topped with seeds and the filling buttercream with jam.
