This weekend one of my edible flower petal cakes was included in the Observers Top 5 – so awesome!

Observer Top 5

The Observer said: “For summer weddings and parties, go to Bee’s Bakery for flower spangled deliciousness”

This cake is a chocolate sponge cake, decorated with vanilla buttercream and scattered with edible flower petals. It is totally customisable, we can make it in any size, shape, and with any number of tiers you like – we have a fantastic selection of cake recipes too!

We do still have the odd spot left for weddings this summer, so get in touch to discuss: bee@bees.jessepearson.net

The brilliant Editor Leah Hyslop wrote such a great article about Bee and the Bakery in the Telegraph this past weekend…so impressed by her journalistic skills that I might steal the line “from bacteria to biscuits” and use it!

Stylist Magazine called in some of our gingerbread cookies and the incredible stylist Candice Bailey (@candicebailey on twitter) dressed them so beautifully using pieces by a selection of stunning jewellers including Monica Vinader, Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana and Dominic Jones.

I’ve never seen our cookies look so beautiful!

I love sweeties…and especially old skool ones, including Love Hearts and Wham Bars…I can’t make Wham Bars but I can have a pretty good go at a Love Heart cookie…

Available to purchase on our Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/168953650/bees-bakery-colourful-love-heart-cookies?

Love Heart

Cakes can be expensive, fact. Especially when you want something that looks really different, unique, bespoke, and not “off the peg”…we’ve been thinking about this for a while in the kitchen, and so have come up with something that looks great, tastes delicious, can take the place of a cake, and even better, is a wee bit lighter on the pocket, than a traditionally decorated cake!

Cookie cake side

Its a honey oatmeal and raisin cookie base, filled with coloured buttercream icing…and its pretty yummy.

We score the top of each cookie, so that when it comes to serving it, its easy to cut into pieces and share…

The cookie recipe, and the colour and recipe of the filling are totally personalisable, and we’re working on some mini ones next! Prices start from £25, email us on bee@bees.jessepearson.net to order.

So we’ve been trying out a couple of new techniques in the kitchen, and these little cookies are some of the spoils…its just a prototype at the moment, but we quite like it!

mixed colour painted cookies

These are vanilla sugar dough cookies, topped with coloured fondant icing and then decorated by painting onto hand piped royal icing…kind of fiddly, and quite tricky to master, but we’re on the move with them!

I think the bright colours work pretty well, although the dark blue on this little beast gives a nice contrast with the silver shimmer too…
