Wedding Cake Ideas – from concept to creation

2013-11-18T22:36:41+00:00

Wedding cakes look beautiful in their finished state, like a top model on the Paris catwalk. But just like that model an awful lot of work goes into the design and planning before it reaches that stage. The first stage is to sit down in consultation with a client, listen to their wedding cake ideas [...]

Buttercream Wedding Cakes versus Fondant Cakes – which do you prefer?

2013-10-01T20:22:39+00:00

Ever since we started this business we have always been steadfastly in bed with fondant for our favourite cake covering. It is just so versatile - it can be coloured many different colours, moulded into a thousand shapes, it stretches, it bends, it keeps the cake inside moist and it provides a brilliant base for [...]

The great British baking revival continues apace in 2013 with more and more people making cakes than ever before. With so much renewed interest in baking comes a renewed interest in taste as well.

It has been a while since I posted anything here which is rather remiss of me but I have good reason having just got married myself! I fully intend to post pictures of my own cake in a little while but for now I thought I would finally put some of the replica Enigma machine [...]

Would this cake make you get better quicker?

2012-03-01T11:09:20+00:00

My other half asked me to make a get well soon cake for a friend who has been ill for a several months. He was expecting a basic round sponge with a straight forward get well soon message piped across the top. Well, at Pink Rose Cakes we don't like to do things [...]

The cake was three tiers of different flavours, including raspberry and white chocolate, vanilla and light chocolate cake. It was then covered in a white chocolate paste and then decorated with [...]

Celebration Generation – Evil Cake Overlord is a Must Read

2011-09-22T22:57:37+00:00

I find my cake inspiration all over the place and on both sides of the Atlantic, drawing from a wealth of blogs, books and video clips. It isn't often that I actually want to shout about a book though but Evil Cake Overlord by Marie Porter at Celebration Generation is definitely worth a mention. I [...]

I recently made a wedding cake for the lovely Laura Gooch and her husband Richard. Laura and I worked together a while back when I wrote the Brighton Argus' Property and Interiors Guide - she subbed it, basically turning my words and pictures into lovely magazine articles. Thankfully she and Richard loved my cake too, [...]
