For our wedding cake, we decided to go to a local home baker instead of a commercial company. We definitely made the right choice with HR Cakes who are based in Andover, Hampshire, UK.
Firstly, I put a notification out to ask for recommendations for cake makers to make a wedding cake. HRCakes got in touch and I had a look at their Facebook page. I liked what I saw with their different cake styles, and so asked if they could make our wedding cake.
We were then invited to a tasting session where we were asked what cake styles we liked and also given six cupcakes of different flavours to taste. The flavours were vanilla, red velvet, lemon, chocolate, chocolate mint and carrot. We liked what we tasted so commissioned HRCakes to make our wedding cake.
We asked for a whole top tier cake so that we could do the usual cutting of the cake, and then four tiers of cupcakes, of all six flavours listed above. We asked for navy blue and silver cakes, and we were not disappointed! Using an edible silver spray and a lot of blue food colouring, we got what we wanted!
The whole process was easy and relaxed and we will definitely be coming back for more cakes when we need to!
I bought the ‘Romantic Personalised Mr And Mrs Cake Topper’ from SophiaVictoriaJoy on Etsy and it was absolutely fantastic. The plastic was sturdy, and in the correct colour ordered. The wording was correct and legible even though it was in fancy writing. The packaging that it came in was good, holding the cake topper in place so that it didn’t break. Most of the guests at our wedding commented on the cake topper and asked where I got it from. All in all, a very good purchase.
