Yes, teacups are still a big trend and are set to stay for a bit longer as I have many bookings for this type of cake with sugar teacups and hand painted details, mix up with bunting and sugar flowers.

Subtle Whimsical

A strong theme, like Alice in Wonderland but keeping it more subtle in ivory and white and subtle hints of the theme. This beautiful wedding cake is feminine, whimsical and pretty with floating ruffle flowers and gold touches.

Buttercream Semi Naked

A stylish way to do modern rustic is with fresh flowers or ferns. It’s a great budget option too, without losing the style. Mix it up with a dessert table to treat your guests.
