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!
This weekend one of my edible flower petal cakes was included in the Observers Top 5 – so awesome!
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some pics of my most recent wedding and party cakes! I bake everything to commission, and my designs are totally customisable. I still have a few spots available for wedding cakes for this summer, so get in touch if you’d like one! email@example.com
This is a dinky little pretty thing of a birthday cake – tiers measure 6inches and 4 inches, to serve around 20 people. LOVE the yellow.
And this pretty little rose gold inspired number was commissioned by Etsy UK – for their first ever wedding fair! Its made with edible gold sequins, and lots of beautiful paper flowers…which i particularly love…
This cake is the cousin of the yellow cake, but this time for a wedding in hampstead. Made with edible flower petals, the amazing thing about this cake is that its possible to choose the shape and style of the petals. So if big and pink is your thing then great, but if tiny and blue is more your bag, then that works too – totally customisable.
