Bespoke Wedding Cakes

Aug 1, 2018

I make bespoke wedding cakes in London… Wedding cakes follow certain trends as does everything. But shouldn’t you think about having a wedding cake that really reflects you as a couple? Are you trendy, modern, arty? Into design, architecture, travel? Getting married in a warehouse, pub or studio? This is why all the cakes I make are completely bespoke. I design them specifically with people in mind.

And this is my definition of bespoke wedding cakes:
See your bespoke wedding cake before you buy…
1. As part of the service, I offer a digital sketch with every wedding cake I make, so that the details are as you’d like them. I can change up the sketch until you’re completely happy with your bespoke design.

I’m not a copy cat
2. I don’t and won’t copy another cake makers cakes because: I may not know what skills have been used to create the finish or details on the cake, so it will never look the same as the cake you had in mind and I don’t want you to be disappointed. Plus: bespoke should be bespoke right? Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons as they say! No need to be a copy cat! Plus, as a cake maker, it kind of goes against my principles just to copy others. This ensures you’ll get a bespoke wedding cake from me, that no one else has ever had!

3. Why have a cake that’s the same as other people’s? There is so much you can do with cake, sugar and icing that your cake can truly be a work or art!

Inspiration is everywhere
4. You can certainly be inspired by other cakes. Or anything! I ask couples to look to their interests, passions and personalities as well as special places, colours and themes for wedding cake inspiration – not just other wedding cakes.

5. When we have our tasting session, it’s so much more than just tasting cake. It’s a chance for me to get to know a couple and see what they like, get an idea of how to reflect their personalities in cake and really how to create a cake that will be perfect for them on their big day. So if you’d like to know more about my bespoke wedding cake service, pop on over to the website and see what’s on offer. I’d love to hear all about your wedding plans and bespoke cake ideas!

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.
