Wedding Cakes

Welcome to Bee’s Bakery – bespoke wedding cakes made with edible flowers and leaves!

Bee’s Bakery wedding cakes are hand made to order in Bee’s railway arch in East London. Bee’s cakes have been featured by Vogue, Stylist, Brides magazine, and the Observer’s Top 5.  We work closely with venues in and outside of London, and are happy to arrange collection free of charge from our bakery in E7, or can recommend Addison Lee couriers.

I love making really special wedding cakes especially those incorporating a little bit of colour, an interesting texture or just something DIFFERENT from your average cake…and my speciality is cakes decorated with edible flowers, a bit like these ones:

We use ORGANIC, UK-grown edible flowers and petals to decorate our cakes, these are available in a stunning array of colours, shapes and sizes, so get in touch to tell me what you’re looking for!

Our cakes have graced weddings and parties at venues including Kew Gardens, Soho Farmhouse, the ICA, Wilton’s Music Hall, the Ham Yard Hotel and the Saville Club. They have appeared on the telly box on Mary Portas’s show, ITV and on BBC 2.

New for 2017 are our cakes that use beautiful dehydrated edible fruits and dried flowers, along with our brand new edible printed cakes, using bespoke botanical prints – have a look at these little beauties!

Edible Flowers

We use edible wafer paper to create beautiful delicate little handmade roses – and can create these in any colour combination you like.

We’re great at sugarcraft and can happily make a sugar rose or a hydrangea that looks pretty lifelike, like these ones. The first is a Chocolate orange sponge cake, decorated with fondant icing and ivory open roses.

We also love doing a bit of delicate piping, like on this cake, it took 250 individually hand piped sugar roses arranged carefully in an intricate pattern!

This cake was commissioned by Etsy – for their first ever wedding fair…and it was SUPER fun to make!

Lace cakes can be very pretty too – especially when a touch of colour is incorporated, like the first one here – a pale green lace cake.
