On the 3rd of February at 11.27am Ibiza time my Son launched my new website. It was timed to the minute because My Husband is an astrologer and he identified the best time to ‘launch to the world’. I am one lucky lady to have these wonderful men in my life.
I still have plenty of work to do to make the site complete, it all takes time, writing is ok, but designing, making and then photographing cakes is very time consuming, although I love it!! So please keep revisiting the site to see new updates.
The most important step I am making this year is my designer collection. Due to the very high demand for my work I am introducing this line to give affordable luxury to many more couples and to also free up some of my time.
The prices start at £295 with no hidden extras! – which includes everything you need for your very special wedding cake: Delivery and set up at the correct time to your chosen venue, the cake finished in sugar-paste icing in ivory or white, plus hand crafted sugar-craft decoration, good quality ribbon, presented on a white pedestal stand, which is your to keep.
Easy online ordering with a choice of 4 different styles, 4 different sizes, 3 different cake flavours and of course the best part is you choose your colour, as each cake will be made to match your unique colour wedding theme. There will also be an option to send a ‘swatch’ of the colour you would like so that I can match the handmade decoration exactly, or you can send your own ribbon which I will add to the cake. Therefore you still have many choices, but this can be done from the comfort of your own home, with the knowledge that I will make your cake, deliver it at the correct time and it will be another part of your wedding that is organised without stress – ‘A designer Ibizacake’ J
Of course I will still be making my bespoke range and of course cup-cake towers in every design imaginable! This year however I will be asking for a deposit of £50 before a couple visits for a ‘tasting’ and discussing the designs. This will be deducted from the price of the wedding cake should they choose to order from me. As Always this is by appointment only and is not available on the designer range.
This is making for a very busy winter season for me, with new designs to work on and make, cake exhibitions to attend, the process of ordering the right equipment, cupcakes cases, boards etc etc …. I may not be delivering wedding cakes at this time of year, but the work is all towards that aim for the coming season.
Something very different this year is ‘cup cakes’ made and presented in ice cream cones, this relatively new concept is rather different, and looks rather good and is very unusual for the guests¬.
As I always make a ‘top cake’ for the cutting ceremony the novel idea of ice cream cones doesn’t detract from wedding cake theme and tradition of the cake cutting ceremony.
I have lots of ‘sweets’ desserts tables in the pipeline this year, I love organising these, including sourcing the coloured sweets and items for the table. I generally make macaroons, biscuits, add lollipops and of course cupcakes to the table, working on each individual theme for my couples.
Oh – and one more thing!!! I have a very new and unique cake stand this year, based on the ‘sex and the city’ wedding cake. I will be adding a picture of this set up with a cake very soon, so if you are thinking of a bright modern sparkly theme, then this may well be for you!!!!
Enjoy all your planning.
