Your Yorkshire Wedding - July/August 2023 (Issue 61)

60 Cakerbells “My favourite cakes to make are semi naked and rustic buttercream,” says Cakerbells’ Jessica Richmond. “More adventurous flavours such as Biscoff and red velvet have been a huge hit with couples, and I find that traditional fruit cakes are rarely requested. Whatever you choose, being a small business, it’s always a privilege being asked to make a wedding cake for a couple’s special day. I put a lot of love into my cakes, and each bake leaves me with a cherished memory.” Katrina’s Bespoke Cakes “My style is modern and elegant, focusing on tall, sharped edges with handcrafted sugar florals,” says Katrina’s Bespoke Cakes’ Katrina Meggitt. “I’m seeing a lot of flowers for this year, however, I think the main trend is that couples are not afraid to choose a design based on what they love. I don’t think they feel pressured to stick to one idea of what a wedding cake should or has to be anymore. This means cakes are becoming more like pieces of art and so much fun for a cake designer.” The Paradise Cake Company “Timeless and elegant, my cakes are luxurious and made of the finest quality ingredients,” says The Paradise Cake Company’s Hannah Ephraim Walpole. “My most popular flavour right now is lemon, combined with other flavours such as elderflower or blueberries. Whatever flavour you choose, I pay attention to detail – all my bakes are works of art created with you as a couple in mind, to give you the wedding cake of your dreams.”
