This week it’s been cake on the brain and fabulous fashion exhibitions.

Getting Excited About Cake…

The Enchanting Cake Company

…I love cake. No secret there! And with my birthday coming up soon and my daughter’s first birthday next month, I’ve found myself dreaming about cake even more than usual. You can imagine my delight when news of award-winning London-based cake designer The Enchanting Cake Company re-launching the brand landed in the inbox.

Now with a beautiful, fully revamped website and brand identity, and a promise to deliver flavour combinations and a level of service not yet seen in the industry, it really is worth checking out for anyone searching for their wedding cake. The brand has an emphasis on soft, feminine cake designs and dedication to handcrafted artistry, specialising in creating magnificent, truly bespoke cakes and dessert tables that become the centrepiece of events, using only the finest ingredients sourced from around the world.  Take a look at their work here. Serious hashtag cake goals!

Checking Out Creatures & Creations …

… I visited Waddesdon Manor this week and took in the Creatures & Creations exhibition that’s taking place until 29th October. It’s an amalgamation of fashion, digital art and animal specimens. In collaboration with the Natural History Museum at Tring, Walter Rothschild’s spectacular collection of natural history provides the inspiration for colourful virtual collages by Platon H and couture dresses by Mary Katrantzou.

Best known for her digital prints, Katrantzou’s creations boast bold graphics and kaleidoscopic artistry as well as intricate needlepoint work.  It’s fair to say the dresses on display were real works of art. A must for fashion-lovers to check out (and Waddesdon Manor itself is beautiful with gorgeous grounds to explore and delicious cream teas!)

I’ve found some great Mary Katrantzou pieces in the sales which would make fabulous wedding guest options. The first one would be great for a Mother of the Bride or Groom!
