All our wedding and anniversary cakes are bespoke, designed especially for each brides requirements. A consultation is booked with the Cake Designer at The Exclusive Cake Shop & Vintage Tearooms, Hill House, Rumbolds Hill, North Street Midhurst, West Sussex, GU29 9BY. Pre the consultation we would need to know the wedding colour scheme, flowers, theme (if any), number of guests, and possible desired shape and any photos and pictures of possible designs. Then at the consultation we can have some initial design ideas to view. Flavours can also be sampled and any dietary needs discussed. The shape and number of tiers can be discussed.
Our wedding and anniversary cakes are made from good quality ingredients with tried and tested recipes gained from years of experience in the baking of cakes. The wedding and anniversary cakes can be sponge based, which can be flavoured, layered with flavoured butter cream and jam. Flavours can include strawberry, lemon, orange, rich moist chocolate, sticky toffee, butterscotch, lime, pineapple, coffee and pecan, cherry madeira, raspberry, vanilla, marshmallow and more... the sponge can then be covered with butter cream, chocolate ganache or regal icing. Alternatively a mature rich fruit cake can be used; these are made with good quality fruit, soaked in tea and brandy to moisten, and once cooked left to mature and fed with brandy. The cakes are then covered with a layer of marzipan and can be decorated with royal or regal icing.
