Our pretty flower petal cakes are todays “Idea of the day” from Brides Magazine! Lovely job…
The article says:
“Bee, who also makes naked cakes decorated with fruit, nuts and flowers or edible bloom garlands, offers her top tips for floral cake perfection:
– Choose your petals carefully. Florist grade flower petals, even if taken from edible species of flowers, are not safe for human consumption, as they’ll often have been sprayed with pesticides and fertilisers – even if you rinse them in water, they’re still not safe to eat.
– Buy your petals from a certified organic grower in your country. This ensures that they are safe to eat – they’ll have been grown in real soil without pesticides or fertilisers, neither of which are safe to eat. We source our flowers from Maddocks Farm Organics, an award-winning grower in Devon.”

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! firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
If not, just DO it!
I post lots of cool pictures, often of our cookies and cakes in progress so you’ll get lots of inside info on how the bakery works…
