A well-travelled wedding cake slice

Jul 18, 2018

Can you believe that a piece of Malarkey wedding cake made it all the way to this beautiful place?!  

I just love it when I receive amazing feedback from my couples, but this was exceptional! Verity and Will’s wedding cake was inspired by a Poppy Pickering beauty. They wanted something classic with a modern twist featuring marble, rose gold and grey; a colour palette still super popular (I love it for interiors!)

  Their venue was the beautiful Fulham Palace. A hidden gem I had never heard about before doing my research for this wedding. It’s surrounded by beautiful parks and is a Grade I listed building with Tudor origins, with its oldest parts dating back to the 11th century.

The cake was all set up in the marquee at Fulham Palace, on a lovely warm day back in June to accompany guests for their wedding breakfast.
This is what Verity and Will had to say about their cake: “We wanted to say a huge thank you for our delicious wedding cake. It was so beautiful and tasted incredible! In the end we had it brought out into the courtyard and it was so gorgeous and perfect, gleaming in the sunshine under our flower arch. We cut it whilst having our cocktails and with a saxophone in the background. Just idyllic. “ Simply idyllic… and it gets better… “You will be pleased to know that every last morsel was devoured – most eaten on the day but we then had a pub afternoon on the Sunday and I nipped home and sliced up the remainder and gave everyone a slice or two to take home! We then had one piece on the plane and a final piece in our safari camp in the Ngorongoro crater!”

  Seriously well-travelled wedding cake! And…   “Everybody commented on it and said each of the flavours were delicious! I even had someone put some of the lemon and blueberry cake into my mouth on the dance floor at the end of the night. Good times! Thank you again for making our day!”
  So as a cake obsessive and a travel junkie, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that a slice of the wedding cake I created, made it all the way to Tanzania! Cake travels really well, so why not take it on your honeymoon?! I’m just in love with this story and want to thank Verity and Will so much for their kind words and for sharing their wedding cake adventure love story. Big love, K xx

About the writer and cake enthusiast…

Hi! I’m Katie and I have been fully cake obsessed since, forever…

Malarkey Cakes is built on a mixture of all my passions. My work is inspired by my background in art and design and I’m honoured to make wedding cakes for couples in love in London and the South East.

I’m passionate about blogging to share my knowledge and give guidance on the ins and out of ordering a wedding cake, making the most of it and making sure it gets the attention it deserves. I also share my tips on wedding planning and team up with fellow suppliers I am lucky enough to work with and who I highly recommend.

When I’m not designing, making or eating cake, you’ll find me trying out new food in London’s amazing restaurants, drinking great coffee, taking in stunning architecture, on long walks, smashing a decent weights workout or exploring the world.
