Beautiful Snowflake Blossom Cupcake Stand

Hello! I just had to write a little post about these beautiful cake stands designed by Jordan Almond Co. The lovely Shireen contacted me with photos of this stand and I just thought it was gorgeous and so Christmassy! Jordan Almond Co is based in London and this is one of their brand new designs. It is a 4 tier acrylic cupcake display stand and as well as cupcakes its perfect for little mince pies.

Really easy to assemble

A lovely Christmas gift

It is priced at £44.95 and if you would like any more information about it then all you need to do is visit Jordan Almond Co at the following places;


They have lots more designs coming in the New Year and a lovely design blog coming soon too.

I will be posting a little Christmas giveaway post soon so keep your eyes peeled!

I made a beautiful wedding cake on Saturday for a very sweet couple. They opted for a giant chocolate cupcake with lots and lots of of chocolate swirly buttercream. They then had a tower of cupcakes with a mixture of colours and flowers.

They had a great day and I wish them all the happiness in the world!

Beautiful Rustic Vintage Wedding cake

Well here it is... my own wedding cake! This is what I created for my amazing day. It was 4 tiers of delicious vanilla sponge with a buttercream finish using palette knife techniques topped with hand made sugar roses. I loved the look of it as its so rustic and simple.

I placed lots of my pretty vintage tea plates all around it so people could help themselves to lots of cake. I also had a dessert table with many, many lovely cakes and puddings that I made but also some from my mum, mum in law and best friend, all were so delicious and a piece of art in itself. A wedding dessert table is a great idea for a wedding as you can get your friends and family involved too.

My guests loved delving into such a wide selection including tirimasu, triple chocolate brownies, rich chocolate cake, fruit cake, pavlova, Victoria sponge, coffee and walnut and lemon drizzle... amazing!

I loved my wedding day and was true to what myself and my husband love and that reflected in the cakes we went for too. To all my brides and grooms out there your engagement is such a precious time, take some time to have a good think about what you would like on your day, things that you love and both want and go for it!
