Here’s a stunning four tier semi-naked wedding cake we created for Sarah’s wedding at The 3 Acres in Huddersfield. The cake was decorated with fresh flowers by Lesley at Hobsons Florists in Holmfirth, who also kindly sent me this picture.
Claire got married during the festive period at the stunning Crab and Lobster in Thirsk and chose a simple rustic winter wedding cake design to be topped with fresh flowers. The cake was finished with rustic buttercream and the stunning fresh flowers are from Pink Ginger Flowers.
This was quite possibly the snowiest delivery I’ve ever managed to do! The only really treacherous part was coming out of our back lane where I skidded down the hill, nearly into the queuing traffic at the bottom. Not the best start to a wedding cake delivery, but all was well and I (and the cake!) made it in one piece.
Huge congratulations to Claire and hew new hubby! xx
A week or so ago I was lucky enough to create a wedding cake for my good friend Emma who married her other half Dan in a beautiful intimate wedding at Hazlewood Castle.
Emma loved the ruffles which are so popular on wedding cakes at the moment, and she also loved the semi-naked finish, so we combined them both, added some fresh flowers, edible gold and some macarons and created a stunning display. I also decorated a gold hoop with some foliage and fresh flowers from Heaven Scent florist.
The wedding cake was displayed on our tree stump cake stand.
This weekend saw the wedding of Chloe and Steve, and we provided their blush pink floral semi-naked wedding cake. They chose the beautiful setting of East Riddlesden Hall for their celebrations and an utterly dreamy colour scheme of pinks and greenery.
Chloe says they tried to make their wedding true to them – one big laidback party with celebrating with family and friends. When Holly and I arrived to set up the wedding cake, most of the other suppliers had already set their bits up, and it looked as though it would be an amazing wedding! Games on the lawn provided by Add Vintage, a photobooth from Booth Revolution and music from The Warning Tones all set the tone for a fabulous fun day. We provided the beautiful blush pink floral semi-naked wedding cake.
The couple chose Lynne from Stems Design to dress the barn at East Riddlesden Hall for them, and it looked stunning. A silver birch arch was to be the backdrop for the ceremony. Lighting from Typical Type intertwined with the greenery in the barn, and the heart shaped light behind the wedding cake was fabulous!
Chloe chose a three tier wedding cake finished in the ever popular semi-naked style, dressed with some fresh flowers from Stems and some macarons. I made the macarons in a beautiful pink colour which tied in perfectly with the overall scheme.
These guys made an appearance too, out on the lawns of East Riddlesden Hall!
Wishing Chloe and Steve love and happiness, and hope they have an amazing time honeymooning in America! Lucky things x
How’s this for a beautiful semi-naked wedding cake? Tom and Amy got married over the weekend at the beautiful Durker Roods Hotel in the picturesque village of Meltham, just outside Holmfirth. I was honoured to be asked to create their wedding cake, especially as the brief was such a brilliant one!
The couple wanted to incorporate beautiful seasonal fresh flowers into their cake design. They had asked talented local grower and florist Alison from Flowers from the Garden to supply their floral arrangements, made up of stunning seasonal flowers including roses, geraniums and astrantia. I dressed the cake using some of Alison’s beautiful fresh flowers and snuck a few macarons on there too to add extra pops of colour. I love the colours of this cake. The flowers add such a zingy cherry feel!
Alison also supplied flowers for decorating the hotel and for the place names too, which incorporated a simple lavender flower. Sometimes something simple is all you need.
Tom and Amy chose to display their cake on our rustic tree stump cake stand, and had macarons as favours for their guests too. I love their use of a picnic hamper to collect cards!
As it’s the school holidays, I had my little helper with me. She managed to photobomb a few of my images!
Sending love and congratulations to Amy and Tom, and I wish them all the best for their honeymoon in Cyprus. The weather there will definitely better than what we have here at the moment!

Kayla and Liam got married! They celebrated at Durker Roods Hotel, Meltham on the outskirts of Huddersfield over the weekend. Their colour scheme of mint and peach, which is such a gorgeous colour combination. They chose a rustic mint and peach wedding cake.
Jane from Woo B Woo provided some stunning flowers in shades of pink and peach, including some stunning David Austin roses and astilbe. Here’s a shot of the bridal bouquet – how gorgeous!?
I was able to use some of the spare flowers to decorate the cake. The wedding cake was finished in a semi-naked style with mint green buttercream, hessian ribbon and LOVE Scrabble letters. I displayed the cake on a white pedestal cake stand. Kayla had a strong idea of how she wanted her cake to look, and I was so pleased to be able to bring her vision to life. I love this mint and peach wedding cake!
Jane from Woo B Woo created some adorable Lego button holes for the couple’s sons to wear. She also used amazing Art Deco vintage tea cups to create some beautiful floral displays for the top table, and the colours all tied in perfectly with the details chosen by Kayla.
I really love the copper lanterns used to line the aisle, and the rose gold sequin runners. I have one for my wedding fair display table! The rustic wooden touches really added to the overall feel of the scheme, and tied in perfectly with the wooden Scrabble letters used on the wedding cake.
Wishing Kayla and Liam much love and happiness x

I first met Sinead a couple of months ago when she came for a complimentary cake consultation. She was such a chilled out bride and I was so pleased when she said she’d like me to make a rustic floral wedding cake for her and Matt for their wedding day at Cubley Hall. Cubley Hall in Penistone is a gorgeous rustic barn wedding venue which can host your ceremony outside under a beautiful garden pavilion (weather permitting!) with your reception being held in a stunning ancient barn.
Sinead had chosen a three tier rustic wedding cake with an abundance of fresh flowers (provided by Forget Me Not Florists of Rotherham) in shades of blue and purple. Sasha at Forget Me Not created the stunning top display for the cake and gave me a bucket of fresh flowers to play with, so I got to create the separators between the cake tiers. We used scabious, sea holly, cornflowers, some eucalytus and gypsophelia with delphinium flowers in and amongst.
Flavours of lemon, salted caramel and chocolate were chosen by Sinead and Matt for their wedding cake. We also provided some vanilla cupcakes as wedding favours. These were finished with a name and a little twine bow, as a nod to the rustic finish and the barn wedding venue.
Cubley Hall provided the tree slice cake stand. We displayed the rustic floral wedding cake on a barrel to tie in with the barn wedding vibe. The twinkling fairy lights made the whole room look amazing.
In need of some marquee wedding inspiration? Lucie and Rob created a beautiful setting for their wedding reception in a Wills Marquee at Smallshaw Farm Cottages, Deanhouse. Lucie and Rob are such a lovely couple, and it was a real pleasure to be a small part of their big day. Here are some pictures of the floral wedding cake, and a few pictures of the dreamy decor…
They chose a three tiered wedding cake, finished with white chocolate ganache. The rustic finish they chose fit perfectly with the abundant floral scheme they had within the marquee. The cake was dressed with fresh flowers from their florist, Of the Wild in Sheffield.
The floral chandeliers were stunning! Created by Kath at Of the Wild in Sheffield, these two beautiful arrangements were a real focal point within the marquee.
A while ago you may remember, I blogged about being involved in a styled shoot at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I had an email from the photographer Lianne Gray this morning to say it’s been featured on Plans and Presents Wedding Blog!
Click the link to see loads of Lianne’s amazing photos of Chris and Ashley on their anniversary photoshoot.
This is a cake we created using fresh flowers including some unusual roses, gerberas and gypsophelia. Perfect for a fun wedding or other celebration. Featuring meringue kisses, macarons and a little sprinkling of popping candy for a little something unexpected 🙂
