The 2012 Wedding Cake Roundup
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 :)
Vintage Rose Cupcake Workshop
As you may know from our events page we will be exhibiting at the ‘Hello Bygones’ Vintage and Retro Fair at Westlands Leisure Centre, Yeovil on Sunday 1st April and we are pleased to announce we will be giving a mini hands-on workshop for a few lucky visitors who nab their place quickly!
Bish, Bash, Bosh – Malteser Tiffin
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.
