What To Consider
One of the most important parts of your wedding day is the cutting of the wedding cake. The days of the plain iced square of cake are fading into a distant memory – Just take a look at what we can offer! At the heart of these cakes is a moist, rich, dark, dense chocolate cake, layered with Belgium chocolate truffle. Every cake is hand crafted, and the chocolate can be hand dyed to match your wedding colour scheme. From classical baroque Cherubic fantasies, to a cascade of delicate hearts these cakes really do have to be seen to be believed! Most importantly these cakes do not just look great, they taste delicious! Bespoke commissions can be undertaken, your imagination really is the limit!
