London’s Best Cake Makers
Not only did Violet Cakes create Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake, but they also use only seasonal, organic and low intervention produce in their designs. The flowers on their cakes are either from East London’s Rebel Rebel or fresh from the neighbour’s garden or allotment. The eggs come from Longwood Farm in Suffolk and the milk, cream and yoghurt from Northaim Dairy.
Cutter & Squidge pride themselves on being health conscious, but one thing’s for sure: what their ingredients lack in preservatives, fats and sugars, their creations certainly don’t lack in flavour. From biskies to dreamcakes, to wedding cakes or even vegan cakes, they can just about make anything you ask. Being all-natural means you can eat more whilst feeling less guilty – right?
The creativity behind the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake, Fiona Cairns creates completely bespoke wedding cakes with flavours ranging from dark fruit to fragrant vanilla or even rich chocolate sponge. Her cakes are even sold as part of the Waitrose Entertaining range!
With a mission to spread joy through cake, Konditor and Cook certainly live up to their values with their alcoholic cakes. Obviously, they sell non-alcoholic ones and decorate them beautifully, but we’re interested in the gin & tonic cake right now. They also have a prosecco soaked vanilla sponge creation which is sandwiched with passionfruit puree and covered in a light passionfruit Marscapone frosting. Whose birthday is it next?
Lily Vanilli offer only the easiest bespoke cake service around. All you have to do is go on to their website and choose a flavour (chocolate with salted caramel sauce and buttercream, please!), then choose some inspiration from their previously made designs. Next you say how many people you want it to feed, select the date you need it by, write a message (optional) and ta-dah! They even do amazing mini cake canapes to wow your guests. Or just, you know, if you’re feeling like treating yourself on a Saturday afternoon.
Not only has Rosalind Miller Cakes won the award for London and National ‘Best Wedding Cake Designer’ 2 years in a row, but they’ve made 15 metre wide dessert tables for royalty before, sugar castles for celebrity weddings and also; a giant human-sized gingerbread house (we’ll take on of those, please). Whats more? Their current designer cake is available in Harrods Food Hall as it’s one of their wedding cakes. Get a slice of that…
Is there really anything better than a naked & rustic wedding cake? Mary Lou’s bakehouse produces everything from layer cakes to cupcakes, cake pops, chocolates and even iced biscuits. But the thing we really need to talk about is how they will literally create anything you want. From a cake made to look like a roast chicken, to a candy crush inspired cake or just a plain fruity one, they’ve got you covered; and it all looks amazing.
For modernity and sophistication in your next cake, there’s really nowhere else to go. Bea’s of Bloomsbury’s wedding cake collection is firmly rooted in tradition as they name their different styles after places in London. Our favourites are Greenwich, Kew and Kensington.
Suggared Saffron prides itself on being one of London’s leading cake designers. Whilst only creating cakes which are tailor-made to their clients individual requirements, they sure don’t compromise on taste in the least. We just can’t get enough of their marble cake…
Home to several multi-award winning cakes, Pretty Gorgeous Cake Company creates cakes to die for. From champagne flavour to Maltesers and also pink coconut, you can even have a different flavour in each tier to switch it up… that’s what we call a cake.
