Naked cake is now a trend!

April 11th, 2017

Koala Cakes

There is definately a trend on naked cake recently.

New wedding dessert or celebration cake trend for unfrosted edges exposes the delicious flavors inside.

The traditional wedding cake is typically covered with sugar paste fondant, but if a new trend takes hold, it’s about to get it on board.

More and more brides are opting to serve ‘naked cakes’ – decorated with fresh fruit or fresh flowers with outer layer of buttercream so that the texture of the cake and the colors inside are put on show.

fresh fruit naked cake

 

Decorated with fresh flowers are certianly it is less expensive than fondant covered cake with sugar flowers, but has a negative side and leaves that are actually poisonous

Despite of what I do, I must say that fresh flowers are not a general food product and flowers should not be eaten unless they are sourced from a reputable organic edible source.

Even if they are not actually eaten there is a risk that sap or fine hair irritants from poisonous plants can leech into a cake if they come into contact with it.

You must discuss with the florist and cake maker whoever is decorating the cake to make sure it is all sourced from organic edible source or have not poked into the cake.

Koala cakes dramatic story of ‘Rescue the wedding cake!’

One early Saturday morning at 7:50am Koala cakes’s phone was ringing.

Thought it could be an urgent call if someone is calling this early on Saturday morning.

It was a dad of a bride who is getting married next Saturday, got a wedding cake delivered yesterday ( already? a week before? we were so surprised! ), they said cake was a disaster and bride cried all through the night.

So dad and mum found us and called us straight away to ask  if we could help them out from the nightmare.

We could not say No. How could we say No!

We  had less than a week to prepare for the Rescue project, did not have enought time to bake the fruit cake so kept 1 tier of fruit cake on top and made Vanilla sponge and Lemon sponge freshly.

When we were setting up the cake at Quy Mill Cambridge, wedding cake table was right at the middle of the room which we understood more why bride was upset about the previous cake.

Made the bride happy? that is all matters what to Koala cakes :)

They also had topper beautifully made to go on the top of the cake.

Koala Cakes

Santiago is now 5 and having a birthday party at Orchard part community centre in Cambridge.

Santiago loves Dinosaurs, especially T-rex and Stegosaurus so definately it was a theme to go, Dinosaur birthday cake.

We used Chocolate rocks for realistic rough nature but kept the cuteness from the dinosaurs and red mushrooms.

Can you see the snakes are wriggling around and making Santiago’s name. :)

What’s the flavour? Has to be Chocolate, doesn’t it?

Fotini is Greek, and going to be turned 70.

She came to Cambridge in her 20′s and met her husband who was spanish, since then she lived her life with her beautiful 2sons and 2 daughters and now 10 grandchildrens.

She is ill after her stroke and hard to take flights to go to her home town, so one of her daughter wanted to give her whole greece on her birthday.

We decided to give her the Acropolis of athens which is the most outstanding thing in Greece and with the Greek national flag.

It was a hard challange but pushed ourselves to get the best result out as it was an emotional project to do.

Every single thing has been made with edible material.

For dramatic and fun outcome, we made a chocolate sponge cake so when you cut it will feel like the Acorpolis is getting more distroyed.

Also Pillar is made out of Rice crispy and marshmallow so will have the same realistic outcome.

African bright floral theme wedding cake

October 16th, 2014

Koala Cakes

Jeff and Laura already had a big massive wedding in Uganda but was planning a small celebration with family and friends in Buckinhamshire UK, and bring the theme they had there.

The vivid orange, red, pink color was inspired by the flowers they had back in Uganda, beautifully accented with small touches of lime green to bring the vibe energey what they had in Uganda.

I love unexpected contrast in design like this, and this unique color seemed to work well, this was a perfect fit with the African style.

One of the main thing we considered with this cake was the sugar flowers. This wedding cake was all about the flowers.

Same as our other wedding cakes, but just more of them.

We are working on the ways to improve how we make flowers and arrange them and this wedding cake was a good one to get challenged since they had to go all around the cake.

Pearl rose petal wedding cake

October 16th, 2014

Koala Cakes

There was a wedding on mid September on typical english autumn weekend in an amazing venue called Rectory farm,  just little outside of Cambridge centre.

Bride Caroline wanted a really simple but elegant wedding cake with cupcakes around.

To make the elegance really pop we have added floral petals around.

Their theme was pale pink and pale blue, for the simplicity we only used pale pink for the main cake and touch of pale blue just for the cupcakes.

Caroline is suffering from coeliac and asked us for Gluten free cake for her wedding cake.

We usually use Dovefarm gluten free flour for gluten free cake, but this case we used Orgran which does not include potato ingredient as one of the guest was also gluten free but could not eat potato as well.

Yes, Koala cakes do care and think about even one guest among all 150 guests!

Floral Cacade wedding cake

October 16th, 2014

Koala Cakes

Colin and Anna got married  in a lovely sunny day on July, ceremony at st Mary’s church in Cambridge and reception at Anna’s parent’s house.

Bride Anna was having a very traditional english wedding, so one of the biggest focal points of this wedding cake was the sugar flowers.

We designed a traditional floral cascading wedding cake, used various shades of pink with lilac and a touch of pale peach and share with cream to set a romantic and traditional mood that fits their summer wedding and well fitted in their romantic marquee wedding.

Rock climbing wedding cake

October 16th, 2014

Koala Cakes

Katherine and Steve had their wedding at South farm in Cambridge.

It was raining in the morning and cleared out so nicely.

We were so surprised to see the bride when we delivered the cake, first time ever and will be! She was so relaxed and calm, down to earth. Loved her!

It was really good fun to do this project as we also got a chance to know about the couple, and this really helps when we design and make the cake.

They have met each other Rock climbing, and then Steve proposed to Katherine on the top of the mountian. How romantic!

So she like to have a story on the cake as well as our sugar florals, which is something we’re known for.

We designed with sugar flowers  in white and eucalyptus which was their elegant wedding colour scheme but also novelty theme on the back of the cake to show their love story.

Steve likes traditional Fruit cake, Katherine was addicted to Chocolate cake, and they both wanted Vanilla cake to satisfiy the guest for choices.

You can see Koala cakes has no limitation on design and flavour, we do what customer wants! :)

Tesco farewell crying figures cake

October 16th, 2014

Koala Cakes

Ian who is one of the board member in Tesco, worked in head office Finance team for 15 years is now leaving.

He worked like a superman in several different countries not only UK but Poland and USA ( Fresh and Easy ).

By the time Ian was working in Poland, happened by accident Koala Cakes were there too, therefore we got the order from one of his colleague.

We made Poland board members in sugarpaste figures, which is something we’re also well known for, with full of sadness expression.

We hoped Ian could keep the figures for his memory, but now it happened to be in Poland CEO’s office room nicely framed.

Of cause the Chocolate cake is all gone :)

Elegant pearl wedding cake

Koala Cakes

This spontaneous 3tier pearl wedding cake was for Katherine who got married at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond park London.

Elegant bridge wanted to have simple but unique wedding cake to serve 100 guest invited.

As it was a simple Pearl wedding cake, I wanted to kick it up a notch and make it a bit more unique and decadent and I opted to add additional cake boards inbetween each tiers which had brought the cake not only taller but spacious as well  to let the tightly arrange pearls to breath out their elegance.

Please visit our gallery for more elegant wedding cakes.
