Beautiful Bespoke Wedding Cakes in Tunbridge Wells, East Sussex, Kent

  A few new bespoke wedding cake designs from our 2019 wedding season. As professional bespoke cake makers based here in Tunbridge Wells on the Kent and East Sussex border, we take great care in designing your perfect wedding cake that fits seamlessly with your special day. Stylish and beautiful, original designs are our speciality coupled with the most delicious flavours. You can choose elements from our portfolio and perhaps alter details such as sizing and colour palette or Jennie will design something completely new for you. We love to see all the details for your wedding in our consultation when designing your wedding cake.

This Rose Ruffle wedding cake was created for the lovely A & N who were married with a private venue in East Sussex and a marquee wedding. The pale ivory iced cake featured a giant sugar garden rose with edible 24K gold leaf details, blush watercolour and a bottom tier encased in hand rolled sugar ruffles. Each tier was a different flavour of chocolate truffle, madagascan vanilla & raspberry and a gluten free organic lemon zest tier.

A few lovely words from our bride “I wanted to say a big thank you for the cake, it was absolutely gorgeous, fitted the theme perfectly…Ive not tasted a large cake so moist and delicate – you are a cake genius”. Thank you! it’s such a pleasure to create something special for such a memorable day.


This tall elegant Rose Pearl Sparkle wedding cake and cake table was designed for our lovely bride and groom K & H who held their wedding in the heart of Tunbridge Wells at One Warwick Park. The classic ivory iced cake had an injection of subtle glamour with edible sparkle covered tiers and sugar pearls detail in the design. The cake design was finished with beautiful blush avalanche fresh roses which were provided by local florist Charlotte at The Floral Workshop. The cupcakes to match were decorated with blush sugar roses, rosebuds and sugar pearls and surrounded the cake with scattered rose petals. To serve their guests they chose classic Madagascan vanilla cake layered with vanilla bean buttercream and a seedless raspberry preserve.





The Cherry Blossom wedding cake was designed for our lovely couple S & M who were married at Horsley Towers in Surrey. The wedding cake featured hand made sugar cherry blossom and peony flowers with a hand painted cherry blossom design on the tiers. A metallic rose gold/copper tier tied in with the wedding colour palette and was finished with a personal monogram plaque echoing the wedding stationary details.
