Macarons on Wedding Cake
Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers and Macarons
I delivered this wedding cake with fresh flowers and macarons to the Craiglands Hotel, Ilkey. It’s a beautiful building that can accommodate weddings with a large number of guests. The staff are really friendly and Harriet (the wedding coordinator) is so helpful.
This is one of my favourite styles of cake to make. Three sleek iced white tiers, coated with ganache and artisan sugarpaste then dressed with beautiful fresh flowers and home made macarons. I love the colours of hot pink! The cake was displayed on a crystal stand provided by the bride and groom and had some sparkly crystals scattered around.
Aneesa and her husband had chosen flavours of toffee, vanilla and chocolate for their cake. This wedding cake with fresh flowers and macarons was a joy to make!
Isn’t this the most beautiful room? I’ve got serious chandelier envy.
Huge congratulations to the happy couple! x
PS – I LOVED this sign. I got married in the days before Instagram and Facebook etc but I would definitely have had this!

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!

This is a cake I created for a lovely couple, Rich and Natalie. They had seen a design online by Anges de Sucre and asked if I could create something similar, so I had a go! Five tiers of cake finished in a semi-naked style, topped with chocolate ganache drips and decorated with different flavours of macarons in different pastel shades.
Macarons are not my favourite things in the world, and more ended up in the bin than on the cake as they are so tricky to make, but they taste AMAZING! They’d be fabulous wedding favours 🙂
This cake was delivered to the beautiful East Riddlesden Hall in Keighley, which is a stunning venue for anyone wanting a rustic barn-style wedding. They even have ducks! 🙂 x
