Cotton & Crumbs
Every time we head over to take a sneaky peek at what Tracy James has been up to, we’re never disappointed. Her cakes are simply stunning and only seem to become more ambitious as time goes by. Instead of restricting herself to a single style, Tracy manages to remain fluid as she goes from an ornate three-tier cake adorned with huge sugar flowers to a rustic bake with wood-effect frosting, to a contemporary cake with flecks of gold and trendy geometric patterns. She’s a true cake artist if we’ve ever seen one and most definitely worth keeping your eye on.
La Belle Cake Company
Working from her Leighton Buzzard studio, Michelle Shulman’s La Belle Cake Company are a tour-de-force of creative wedding cake, designing bakes both understated and dramatic to create a centrepiece that wedding guests will be remembering long after your “I do’s” have been and gone. Michelle has even baked for royalty, so if a certain Miss Markle is reading this, you know who to call…
The Sweet Stuff
There’s wedding cake that you taste once and then it’s over, then there’s wedding cake that you post on Instagram, message all your friends about and break out in total baking envy. The Sweet Stuff have planted their spatula firmly in the latter category with stylish contemporary designs that feature those trendy flecks of gold across their cream tiers with a handful of macaroons on top for good measure. Although we have to say, we’re rather taken with the rustic designs that hang from the ceiling, because that’s just how The Sweet Stuff rolls.
The Organic Wedding Cake Company
For those of us who don’t just immediately see cake and think “Must. Eat.” The Organic Wedding Cake Company give you the option of treating your guests to a cake that’s both organic and ethically sourced. Oh, and absolutely delicious too, with creator Celeste Batten’s speciality being those oh-so-trendy naked cakes that we’ve seen become oh-so-popular over the past year. This is just perfect for a boho bride, and besides, it’s guilt-free cake, what’s not to love?
Cakes by Sophie Page
If you’ve been dreaming in cake since your soon-to-be husband first popped the question then Sophie Page is the woman who can turn those dreams into sugar sweet realities. There is a stunning variety of techniques on display in each of her wedding bakes whether it’s sugar modelling, frosting, illustrating or patterning. But what makes Sophie’s cakes really stand out is her use of colour, always creating lovely contrasts that both catch and please the eye.
