We’ve been having such a busy year in the Ice Maiden Cakes kitchen that it’s been tricky trying to keep the website up to date with all the beautiful wedding cakes we’ve been creating! So, we thought we’d put together a little picture blog for you with some of our favourite cakes of the year to feed your cake cravings until we get on top of things. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed creating them – for a closer look just click on an image :)

I recently added Eric Lanlard’s Home Bake to my ever expanding collection of baking books and have been enjoying experimenting with some of his ideas. One of the recipes is for Malteser Squares which I thought was a fun twist on the traditional tiffin! I have used Eric’s idea with my own tiffin recipe as I thought the one in the book was a little light on the sugar! It’s such a simple recipe that it’s ideal for making with little ones.

West Country Wedding Venues #2 – River Cottage

I have been a very busy bees over the summer and autumn, buzzing all over Somerset, Dorset and Devon delivering delicious wedding cakes for our lovely customers. Some venues I just love to go back to time and again, not just because they are beautiful or have great amenities but because the teams at the venues stand out as professional and are warm and welcoming. So, if they are this nice to me as a supplier can you imagine how nice they are to their customers! I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of my stand-out venues from this year in the hope that I can help you find that dream location for your special day.

In this second post on west country wedding venues I’m featuring a venue that I have visited and spent time at but not delivered to and one which might not have crossed your mind as a wedding venue at all. It’s the wonderfully rural River Cottage HQ.

    • Black & White Anemone Wedding Cake Black & White Anemone Wedding Cake
      We stepped in to the breach at short notice to create this wedding cake for Louise but the late nights were worth it once it was all set up and the cascade of flowers put in place. We love the fun curls and arcs of bear grass adding extra movement to the swathe of anemones. [...]
    • Physalis Wedding Cake in Somerset and Dorset Physalis Chocolate Wedding Cake
      This cake smelled a-ma-zing as we were putting it together! Inside was our rich chocolate fudge cake filled with whipped chocolate ganache. And in case that wasn’t enough chocolate our luxurious dark chocolate ganache is then poured over the whole thing in a delicious thick coat. The bright pops of colours from fresh, exotic physalis complements the [...]
    • Exotic Animal Wedding Cake Exotic Animal Wedding Cake
      We were ridiculously excited when we received an email from Rachel asking if we could create a wedding cake featuring an owl, a chameleon, a tortoise and a snake. The answers – hell yes!! Rachel and Mark are vets and in particular, look after exotic animals as well as owning a few of their own so [...]
    • Vintage Rose Dessert Table Vintage Rose Wedding Dessert Table
      Dessert tables have become increasingly popular for weddings over the last year and we were very honoured when the lovely Claire and Ross from Sausage & Pear asked us to create a vintage style dessert table for their wedding. Not to mention being a little nervous as they are such fantastic caterers! We’ll let the [...]
    • Button & Pearl Wedding Cupcakes Buttons and Pearls Wedding Cupcakes
        We’ve seen a drop off in demand for cupcakes this year so it was a real pleasure to create this vintage style cupcake tower for Claire and Nick’s wedding. All of the sugar buttons and pearls were hand made and hand painted and we love the mix of shapes and textures they give to the [...]
    • Peach Lace Applique Wedding Cake Lace Applique Wedding Cake
      This elegant three tier wedding cake featured two of the biggest trends for 2013 weddings – lace and soft peach. The vintage trend is still going strong in the wedding world and this design fits the theme perfectly and can be adapted for any colour scheme. If you would like to come along and discuss your [...]
