It's been a busy old time here at Cutiepie HQ as we grappled with the height of Wedding Season. Over the August Bank Holiday weekend 274 cupcakes were baked, decorated and delivered. All arrived on time with no mishaps after which we treated ourselves to a slap up meal and a good sit down! Now that Autumn is creeping in (ah mellow fruitfulness and all that jazz....) and things are a little quieter we thought it was the perfect opportunity to look back at the good times we have had over the summer and look forward to some new and yummy flavours for those colder days which we know are on the way!
So first up, here is a little selection of our recent work. The quirkiest wedding we have ever done (and that's official) were the nuptials of Bradley and Jonathan whose Sci-fi and Disney themed day was one of the best we have ever baked for. Take a look at the cupcake tower we produced for them.
We combined a 'Disney' castle top tier with cakes in four flavours decorated with the Doctor Who and Rebel Alliance (Star Wars) symbols which we painstakingly painted by hand from templates we made ourselves. It was hard work but certainly worth it for such a lovely couple who went the extra mile to make sure everyone had a good time. They even had an old fashioned style 'pick n mix' which guests could help themselves to and finished the evening off with Light Sabre battles and an 80's Disco. Amazing!
And now for something a little more traditional! We delivered these cakes to a wedding which was taking place at the very luxurious Norfolk Mead Hotel (highly recommended for delicious food and cosy times by roaring open fires in the winter!). This order was small but perfectly formed with five flavours making up the tower. The theme was pink so we used light pink cases and loving glued fuschia pink ribbon around the centre of each cake.
We think they ended up looking pretty flippin' fantastic and the bride's mother called the next day to say how thrilled they were with everything. This order just goes to show that you can combine all the flavours that your little heart desires and it will still look lovely - you really can have your cake and eat it!
We know we promised you some news about new flavours in this post but we are running out of space and time - keep your eyes peeled and we will post more exciting cakey business tomorrow!
