Top 10 Wedding Cake Makers London & SE
No matter which way you slice it (pun intended), the wedding cake is a momentous part of your wedding day.
Ask anyone to name the notable moments of a wedding day, I would be willing to bet that the cutting of the cake would be featured in the Top Five answers.
Traditionally, it was believed that cutting the wedding cake would bring good luck to the couple and to the guests, but now, wedding cakes are seen as centrepieces for the wedding.
Usually cut after the speeches, the cutting of the wedding cake signifies an end to the more formal part of the day, before the more relaxed, informal fun ensues.
In light of all this, and the fact that your wedding cake is going to be on display for hours, you will want the best of the best to be making your wedding cake. So here’s our round up (in no particular order) of the Top 10 best wedding cake designers in and around London.
- Rosalind Miller Cakes
I’ve long been a fan of the exquisite designs over at Rosalind Miller. Rosalind Miller crafts beautiful wedding cakes, finished with the most delicate sugar flowers. Rosalind’s cakes are beautiful works of art and manage to merge contemporary features such as tall, sleek sharp tiers with more traditional elements like fondant and royal icing.
- The Indulgent Sugar Plum
If you’re looking for contemporary, show stopping, jaw dropping cakes that will leave your guests in awe – Nastassja from The Indulgent Sugar Plum is your girl. Her cakes are instantly recognisable – TALL, artful, and majestic. No two cakes are ever the same from Nastassja, so you’re guaranteed to have a unique, bespoke one off creation for your wedding cake. I can personally attest that Nastassja’s cakes taste as incredible as they look!
- Sugared Saffron
Sugared Saffron’s cakes have been a popular feature of the London wedding cake circuit for more than nine years now. Asma’s cakes are timeless and elegant and show off the finest skills in fondant and sugar flower work. Sugared Saffron have a wonderful gift of bringing together pleasing colour palettes to communicate romance, minimalism and luxe all at once!
- Sweet Homemade
Ethereal, romantic, and soft toned are just some of the words I’d use to describe Katrina’s cakes. Katrina manages to make all her cakes look like something from a dream land, and would be on my wish list if I didn’t make cakes myself! Based in Stevenage, but able to travel to London, Katrina’s cakes make use of buttercream, fondant, wafer paper and sugar flowers to produce the most magical of cakes.
- Amerton Cakes
Number 5 on this roundup is Amerton Cakes, based in Staffordshire. Eileen’s cakes are haute couture and are as modern and sleek as you can come by. Eileen plays with different sizes and textures to make unique standout wedding cakes. I personally love how Eileen marries features like panelling and geometric shapes with softer elements like tulle, ribbon and sugar flowers to create her eye-catching designs.
- Cake Buds
I can only describe Liz from Cake Buds as a cake architect. Her creations are striking, idealistic and artsy. Liz’s cake skills have been recognised by many. In fact she collaborated with Rosalind Miller on the official coronation cake! You only need to look at her work to see why she was chosen for this – such incredible attention to detail and completely bespoke designs.
- Iced Delights Cakes
Bedford based mother and daughter duo, Nicky and Helen make stunning wedding cakes and dessert tables. Their romantic, contemporary designs often include fondant work and sugar flower artistry. With the ability to make sugar flowers becoming a lost art, Iced Delights manage to put a modern slant on a timeless wedding cake feature.
- Deluce Cakes
Laura is a Cordon Bleu trained pastry chef who has a knack for creating life like sugar flowers. Her cakes are simply timelessly elegant, and would be pride of place at any high-end London wedding. Square cakes, round cakes, tall cakes and wafer paper ones – Deluce Cakes make some of the prettiest wedding cakes you’ll ever see.
- Tabi Luxe Cakes
Ayo is an esteemed cake artist from Hertfordshire who has been making quite the buzz in the cake world for the last few years. Ayo’s cakes are artistic, dramatic and certainly have the wow factor. Not content with making the same kind of cakes as everybody else, Ayo has truly gone the extra mile to make incredible cakes that would make the ideal centrepiece for a wedding!
And now, lastly, little old me – Little Cake Garden! You may find it odd that I’d place myself in this list, but I’m actually citing an accolade I was given by Wed Vibes last year. I was honoured to be named as one of their Top 10 Wedding Cake Designers in the UK, alongside some other people from this list. If you’re on this page, you’ll know – my cakes are designed to look romantic and sweet and to taste even better. I employ the use of all mediums, fondant, buttercream, ganache, wafer paper, sugar flowers, fresh flowers – whatever I can work with to create a beautiful show stopper of a cake that is always the talking point of any wedding.
