Wedding Cakes For The DIY Bride

It is becoming increasingly popular for couples and their families to style and dress their wedding venues with their hand made wedding crafts, floral displays and wedding props.

The DIY wedding really does give you the opportunity to be unique on your wedding day, add your own personal touch and involve many members of your family and friends and even save you some money!

So why not have a DIY wedding Cake!

My DIY Wedding Cakes are made exactly the same as a bespoke  wedding cake ordered from me,  made with our free range eggs, home made jam and high quality ingredients. Each wedding cake  tier has 3 layers, and is approx 4″ in height, available in any shape or size.

Your DIY Wedding Cake can either be coated in Butter Cream or Sugar Paste Icing, and taken away ready for you to add your own creativity.

This is the perfect type of wedding cake to have if you have a friend or family member that really wants to make your wedding cake, but as many Brides will tell you, once the full scale of the baking and preparation of your wedding cake is fully thought through, the many hours needed just 2 days before your wedding are really not available.

Your DIY Wedding Cake can be ‘stacked’ ready for you to decorate and boxed in a heavy duty wedding cake transportation box, which is extremely stable and easy to carry. I will also add  ribbon  around your wedding cake to match your wedding colours.

There is no need for you to worry about inserting cake dowels and making sure your wedding cake is level and not leaning over, or you can have each wedding cake boxed separately for you to display yourself. This is ideal if you are considering having a’Wedding Cake Table’

Even though your DIY Wedding Cake leaves me undecorated, I will give you any advice you need on how to add your chosen decoration, to ensure you have a beautiful wedding cake.

My price for a 10″, 8″ & 6″ round DIY wedding cake coated in buttercream is £195, sugar paste icing is £285. Serving approx 80 portions.

There will be a slightly higher price if you wanted to have coloured icing.

These prices are for collection only, where you can collect your DIY wedding cake the day or morning before your wedding, or I can deliver to your wedding venue where your wedding cake will be set up ready for you to decorate.

So if you or a family member are looking to take on the roll of ‘Wedding Cake Decorator’, then please contact me, it would be lovely to hear of your ideas and make your DIY wedding cake for you.

My website is full of wedding cake ideas and also has details of my bespoke wedding cake service.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Sonya

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.
