Love That Wedding Recommended

I’m excited to announce that Caked is now recommended by Love That Wedding! You may notice the new badge on my website, and I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Love That Wedding. They’re a fantastic source of all things weddings in the South West, specifically throughout Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.

I recently exhibited at their wedding fair in Salisbury back in March, and I’m hoping to attend more later in the year. The shows are the perfect way to meet all sorts of interesting suppliers in the area and collect inspiration for your big day.

Love That Wedding have been a great support to me while I relocate my business in the West, and I look forward to working with them closely over the next few years!

Caked has moved to Dorset!

I’m pleased to announce that Caked has relocated to the beautiful West Country.

For 3 years, Caked has been based in London and I’ve been lucky enough to work with so many beautiful venues such as Hedsor House, Kensington Roof Gardens and St Bart’s Brewery. I’ve also loved working with all the amazing wedding suppliers in the area.

Now it’s time for a bit of a change, and I’m delighted to be relocating to Shaftesbury in North Dorset. I’m busy building my cake studio which will be ready for action in a few weeks, and I’ll be hosting wedding consultations there from end of March onwards. I can’t wait to show it off soon!

I’m excited to explore my new area and meet new clients, suppliers and venues. I’m hoping to take full advantage of all the delicious local produce in the area, and integrate Caked into the local community.

I’ll be delivering throughout the South West and further if needed (cakes travel surprisingly well!), so if you’re planning a wedding or celebration soon, get in touch to enquire. I still have some dates free for this summer but don’t leave it too late - everything is handmade from scratch so I only take on a small number of orders per week.

For couples who have already booked for this year and next, not to worry! Nothing will change for you and you will still have your beautiful delicious wedding cake.

Friday Flavours - Strawberry Prosecco

Chances are, you're ordering a cake to celebrate something - perhaps it's your wedding day, a birthday or anniversary - and what better way to celebrate than with bubbles!

Caked's Strawberry Prosecco flavour is everything you want from a celebratory cake. Light vanilla sponge soaked in a prosecco syrup and filled with prosecco buttercream and strawberry conserve. It's light, it's fun and a little bit cheeky!

Your Wedding Cake Consultation with Caked

It's a busy time in the Caked Kitchen! Wedding season hasn't officially started yet, but lots of couples are now at the stage of planning all the extras for their day, and most importantly their wedding cake.

A consultation is a great opportunity to talk in detail about your wedding cake. We'll talk about all the aspects of your wedding - your flowers, your wedding breakfast, your schedule for the day - all the details that can affect the cake. You'll be able to flick through some magazines and my portfolio for inspiration. You can even bring along your invitations and dress swatches.

I'll be able to advise how much cake is needed, where the cake should be displayed, and all the other details for your big day. 

All of this over a cup of tea and plenty of cake to taste. It's one of my favourite parts of cake designing!

Together we'll come to a design you love. This may not be at your consultation, but I will keep designing until you have your dream wedding cake.

Contact Caked to book your wedding consultation! Consultations are a complimentary part of your wedding cake booking - there is a £25 charge but this is deducted from your order at time of booking.

Friday Flavours - Lemon & Lavender

This was one of the very first flavours on my cake menu, so it has a special place in my heart.

Lemon+Lavender

Developed for the very first wedding cake I ever made, my good friends Matt & Ari had lavender as the main theme of their wedding. They specifically wanted lemon cake, but when I added the lavender twist, they were sold. Their buttercream wedding cake was decorated with crystallised lavender around each tier.

With the floral twist, Lemon & Lavender is particularly popular for summer weddings. A super zesty lemon & lavender syrup soaks through the fluffy lemon sponge, with an equally zingy buttercream, it makes a perfectly light cake for serving after a large meal.

As one of my signature flavours, Lemon & Lavender is included in most consultations. If you're keen to taste it for your wedding day, contact Claire at Caked to arrange your wedding consultation. Dates still available for Summer 2018!
