Happy New Year from Caked!

As 2017 comes to a close, I feel an enormous sense of pride looking back over the past year. My little business that started in 2016 has grown so much, and I have huge plans for the next 12 months. Here's a look back at some of the highlights from Caked's 2017...

Weddings

I love a wedding! I had the privilege of making wedding cakes for lots of beautiful couples this year, including a 7 tier showstopper and a Game of Thrones inspired cake complete with sugar dragon on top. Semi-naked cakes were super popular, a trend which looks set to continue for 2018. Here are just a few from this year.

Wedding Fairs

Fairs are a great opportunity to meet suppliers and find inspiration for your big day. I love meeting couples and it allows me to showcase new designs (I always add a slightly daring one in there!)

Next year I'll be at the Chosen Wedding Fair at Islington Town Hall in March, plus more to be confirmed. Stay tuned for more information!

Celebrations

Any celebration needs a cake, and I'm always happy to help. From children's birthdays to anniversaries, a cake will add a sweet touch to any party. Here are some of my favourites from this year!

Classes

I held my very first Caked workshop earlier this year to help raise money for Christians Against Poverty with the lovely Kathryn Thomas. Students learned to make chocolate truffles and decorate Easter biscuits. It was a great day!

2018

Next year is already looking busy for Caked, and I can't wait to get started! Thank you to all my wonderful clients this year. I feel extremely lucky to get to work with such lovely people and help them celebrate all the important moments in their lives. 

Happy New Year everyone!

A Trio of Afternoon Tea Treats

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to dust off my pastry skills last week, and I loved getting back into it! 

A lovely local client throwing a birthday party was looking for a delicious birthday cake and some afternoon tea treats. I was more than happy to help.

I offered a trio of afternoon delights - lemon & lavender mini loaf cakes, almond & blueberry tartlets and rose & raspberry macarons. And the delight on her face when I dropped them off made it even more special.

I adore afternoon tea, and love all the etiquette and history that goes along with it. I'll be exploring it more in the coming months, and announcing some exciting plans for a new offering later this year. I'm so excited about it and can't wait to share! But for now, I leave you with these tasty little morsels and the promise of more to come...
