Hello!

I learnt a new trick this week…how to dry out exotic fruits and make them look gorgeous on a cake…here’s a pic:

I’ve been receiving more and more requests for edible petal cakes during the winter, and rather than source them from expensive foreign importers (who probably use all sorts of pesticides etc), I wanted to find a way to work WITH the sparse petals that I can get from my amazing grower in the UK, but boosting them with pretty hand made dried fruit.

I dehydrated thinly sliced fruits overnight to get this affect: kiwis, apples, strawberries (my favourite), pears and carrots…and i think they look lush!

Happy New Year, especially to all you newly-engageds out there!

I have been loving BerinMade’s gorgeous fresh print designs for a year now, when I met Erin at Top Drawer last year, and I’ve always wanted to put them onto a cake…which is exactly what we’ve done!

Brides Magazine has just featured the below yellow amaryllis design in their January issue – which is available with complementary wedding favour cookies too.
