Naked Wedding Cake for High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells

I was asked by the Bride & Groom to create them a 4 tier naked wedding cake to compliment their wedding at High Rocks, in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Not only is High Rocks a stunning Country House but it is steeped in history, with an old steam train platform in its grounds and has its very own private ‘garden’ with famous Rocks that make a great photo opportunity for weddings.

The Barn, framed by oak beams, inside High Rocks was the perfect setting for their Naked Wedding Cake and they had a custom made wooden cake box with their name and wedding date stamped on it.  Wooden boxes were also made for the wedding cards and gifts and for floral displays.

The flowers used to decorate their Naked Wedding Cake were in colours of blues, pinks and white. When flowers are used to decorated my Naked Wedding Cakes I usually ask Brides to order a few extra from their florist to ensure they match all the other flowers they are having for their wedding.

Their 4 Tier Naked Wedding cake was filled with strawberries, drizzled in strawberry couli and filled with vanilla buttercream, served in the evening to over 100 guests.

Wise Wedding Venue is the perfect place for couples wishing to have a very secluded wedding, where your creativity has no limits. A marquee set within secluded woods a waits your decoration.

 

Anna & Mike came to see me earlier in the year for a cake tasting and to discuss their wedding plans, where they wished to have a Naked wedding cake for their wedding day to serve as a dessert and their wedding breakfast.

Wanting to have a relaxed, summer meadow feel to their wedding, they choose a mix of seasonal flowers in all shapes, sizes and colours, displayed on the tables in bottles of different heights and colours.

I used a log cake stand to enhance the woodland feel to their wedding, decorated with more of their summer meadow flowers.

Anna & Mike had a 4 Tier Naked Wedding Cake, all vanilla, filled with buttercream and fresh strawberries and blueberries.

The Naked Wedding Cake – My Story

My first ever Naked wedding cake was nearly 3 years ago, commissioned by one of the pop band members of The Feeling, no pressure then!

The venue was in a private school located in Somerset and what a magnificent venue and setting. The views where outstanding.
The couple decided on a four tier Naked Wedding Cake, filled with strawberries, chantilly cream and strawberry coulis.
With over a 100 guests attending, timing is crucial for the set up off the Naked Wedding Cake due to the use of fresh cream, the cakes have to be eaten within a set period of time, ( Food hygiene regs).So they are being assembled when most Bride & Grooms are making their wedding vowels.
When a naked wedding cake is for a venue some distance away from me I do all the assembly on the premises, for this wedding I was working amongst the caterers, busy preparing the wedding breakfast. And they worked extremely quiet and methodical and you feel the pressure amongst them.
When making a wedding cake I tend to just loose myself in the moment, just focusing on what job has to be done next, ever aware of the ticking clock.
When all the assembling was complete the cake was taken on a trolley into the great hall where the wedding breakfast was being held, and with my bucket full of fresh roses I started the decoration. 40 roses were used for this cake, looking at the picture at a glance you would probably think there was about 10!
I can honestly say the last rose was positioned as the guests started emerging into the wedding breakfast hall, where they were watching and admiring the process.
When decorating a naked wedding cake, the flowers and fresh fruits are carefully positioned around the cake, where I balance the colours, size of the flowers and fruits. This is soo important to the final display.
The naked wedding cake was served as a dessert, drizzled with fruit coulis and I was even invited to the wedding breakfast, eating the cake I had made amongst the guests. This was rather nerve racking, but the naked wedding cake was extremely well received.
I finished my day celebrating this beautiful wedding with their other guests, which included Sophie Ellis Baxter, who provided fantastic music through out the evening. I really got to appreciate how she is in the music industry, the mix of music was so diverse but worked amazingly.
The Naked Wedding Cake has become an extremely popular choice of wedding cake, its beauty blending so well into the Rustic and Vintage style weddings and being served as a delicious dessert for the Wedding Breakfast, where  cake be accompanied with fresh fruit couli, summer fruits, ice cream or cream.

For a Rustic look, the Naked wedding cake can be displayed on a ‘Tree Trunk’ style cake stand, decorated with fresh flowers and fruits.
