Hot of the press girls!
I’m really pleased to tell you that, from June, Waitrose will be stocking a new exclusive range of wedding cakes by Fiona Cairns!
The wonderful Fiona Cairns has been making beautiful cakes for over 23 years, growing her business from the kitchen table to a custom built bakery. Fiona is the original ‘grande dame’ of cakes and very much paved the way for today’s trend for quality wedding cupcakes and wedding cakes.
Fiona has put her skills to the test by designing and creating a bespoke range of beautiful wedding cakes exclusively to Waitrose. From romantic rose petal designs to a vintage fairytale theme or a stylish polka dot creation – every bride will be spoilt for choice!
For a less traditional wedding cake or even for a special occasion, the Rose Petal Celebration Cakes are the perfect piece de resistance. The heart shaped Celebration Cake is available in three colours as are the fairy cakes to match the range.
Colours include the lively white with shimmering flame orange, pink and red petals (left) and the range includes a fabulous three tiered cake which has an eye-catching cascading petal design. The bride and groom to be can select between fillings of rich, moist fruit cake, vanilla sponge with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream or, my personal favourite, chocolate sponge filled with chocolate buttercream, YUM!!!
Three-tiered wedding cake from £190 to £295
Celebration cake from £59 to £60
Fairy Cakes £12.50 for 12
Vintage Fairytale is a beautiful and elaborate range which evokes a magical feel and is perfect for any dream-come-true wedding. The traditional three-tiered wedding cake in the range is styled with handmade sugar paste antique pink roses and rose buds, delicately shimmering butterflies and gold dragees and is topped with fabric hydrangeas and sugar paste roses.
For something a little different, opt for the Carousel Wedding Cake which displays a top tier cake above and two tiers of delicately decorated fairy cakes below. The fairy cakes are so beautiful you almost won’t want to eat them!!
Three-tiered wedding cake from £410 to £450
Carousel wedding cake from £210 to £230
Additional fairy cakes £20 for 12
