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.

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.”

And there are tons more tips too…you can read the full piece here: http://www.bridesmagazine.co.uk/planning/receptions/cakes/2015/06/bees-bakery-edible-flower-cake

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

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.

This is my favourite wedding cake at the moment – edible flowers are JUST coming into bloom, and  there will be many different colours and shapes of petal available from the middle of March onwards…so we can colour match the petals to your wedding theme…

This cake is a 4 tier chocolate milkshake wedding cake, iced with vanilla buttercream and scattered with pink and purple petals.
