Shortly after tying the knot herself and with six years’ experience in cake decorating, Leanne Kelly established The Whimsical Cakery in 2015. Based in Northampton, Leanne’s love of making sugar flowers inspires many of her cake designs and brides love to see their bouquet blooms recreated in sugar.
Creating her own wedding cake encouraged her to pursue what she loves most – making beautifully romantic wedding cakes. The Whimsical Cakery now boasts a beautiful home studio complete with display cakes, perfect for consultations with brides and grooms-to-be. With an expanded menu of flavours, couples can savour indulgent cake options on their big day. Leanne works with every client to design a bespoke wedding cake, transforming their dreams into reality, as well as providing dessert tables brimming with macarons, meringues, miniature cakes, cupcakes and cookies.
Naked and semi-naked cakes are still very popular, with watercolour or ombré buttercream cakes also big this season. Many couples are adding fun to their day with a drip cake, topped with macarons or other treats. Adding metallic elements to a drip cake creates a more indulgent look. Couples are looking to transform traditional fondant cakes with either a chalkboard design, fondant ruffles, hand-painted detail or sugar flower wreathes.
