Today I spent my Sunday doing something a little different than normal; I was working at the Quirky Wedding Fair at the Waterfront in Belfast for Wedding Cakes by Design. I have worked with Dawn the past 2 years at the fair and every time I see her again she has added more stunning Wedding Cake designs to her collection!
These are just a few of the Wedding Cakes Dawn had along with her today for the event. ALL of the flowers and feathers etc are handmade out of sugar paste and are edible! Amazing I know, to look at them they are so stunning you wouldn’t believe that they are not real flowers. Let me show you close ups of some of the cakes in this picture.
This is one of Dawn‘s newer Wedding Cake designs, linking in with the styles on this seasons Wedding dresses and indeed Wedding fashion at the moment.
This edible beading (the photo doesn’t do it justice) is applied individually by hand and took 8 hours alone to decorate.
This Wedding Cake is a 4″, 6″, 7″ and 8″ tiered cake that would give 85-100 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £500.
This was the Wedding Cake my eyes were first drawn to when I arrived this morning, I just love the hand painted flowers and the edible gold covered layer!
Again the photo’s just don’t do this Wedding Cake justice (I think I’ll be saying this a lot!) The detail in the painting of these flowers is beautiful and then they are tided in with the rainbow style colouring on the top tier and the sugar paste flowers on the top.
This Wedding Cake is a 6″, 7″ and 8″ tiered cake that would give you 75 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £400.
Copper and rose gold is very popular at the minute and this Wedding Cake ties in perfectly with that theme. This is a light green and copper cake with red and pink handmade, edible sugar paste flowers.
This photo shows you a bit more detail on the stunning flowers. This Wedding Cake is a 4″, 6″, 7″, 8″and 10″ tiered cake that would give 130 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £530.
This Wedding Cake is a classic at the show (this is maybe it’s second year) and always is so popular. This is a champagne colour with a luster effect and sweeping sugar paste flowers.
This photo gives you a better close up look at the sugar paste flowers. The Wedding Cake can also be made without the luster for £15 less.
This Wedding Cake is a 4″, 6″, 8″and 10″ tiered cake that would give 130 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £540 with the luster and £525 without.
Another of Dawn’s new Wedding Cakes, something a little different with the dream catcher, butterflies and feathers, again all handmade from sugar paste and edible.
A bit more of a close up on the feather detail. This Wedding Cake is a 6″, 7″ and 8″ tiered cake that would give 90-120 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £450.
This semi naked Wedding Cake is another of my favourites, I love the elegance and simplicity of it! Also I don’t like fondant icing so the buttercream covering is perfect for me.
I also like the fact that with the semi naked Wedding Cake you can go for different flavours in each tier as the covering of buttercream hides the different coloured sponges. This Wedding Cake is a 6″and, 8″ tiered cake that would give 60 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £250.
Another popular design is the marble (hard to see in this photo, but you should find it on the website or facebook page). This Wedding Cake is a 4″, 6″and, 8″ tiered cake that would give 70 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £350.
Last but not least is this frame and feather Wedding Cake, the feathers alongside the flowers and gold detail are all edible and handmade from sugar paste. This Wedding Cake is a 4″, 6″, 8″and, 10″ tiered cake that would give 130 servings. This cake as you see it would currently cost £540.
As I said earlier each tier of the Wedding Cake can be a different flavour and that doesn’t add to or change the price of the cake. One of my absolute favourites is the Orange Blossom and Pistachio, I’m not an orange fan, but it is so subtle and delicate. Dawn can also make additional flavours if there is something not on the list.
Don’t worry there are links to Dawn’s website and Facebook page throughout this post, but I will add clear links below.
*The prices of these Wedding Cakes are current to today’s date 19-03-17*
The prices and styles may change so please contact Dawn for further information. The cakes Dawn makes are bespoke so the colour and design of the Wedding Cake or flowers can be change or mixed about from one cake to another. Which is why you should have a look at more of her cake on both her pages, this way you will get more of an idea of what she can do!
