A bespoke cake is the perfect way to make any celebration an extra special event.
Here at Blue Bear Bakery, we can custom design a cake especially for you with your preferred flavour of sponge. Prices for bespoke cakes start from £60 for a 6 inch cake and are dependent on size and the intricacy of the design.
Here are some of our previous bespoke orders and the stories behind them.
The birthday girl herself placed this order with me for her 6th birthday cake - and even had her favourite film on hand to show me for inspiration!
She wanted her favourite character to be the centre of attention on the cake.
I designed the cake with a tree stump as the main base so that it was fairly simple and did not distract from the figure on the top.
The figure itself is modelled using rice krispie treat and modelling paste.
The birthday girl was very happy with her cake!
Wedding Cake and Cupcakes
The colour scheme for this winter wedding was shades of teal so it was important to the couple to have these incorporated into the design.
The main cake was to be cut at the evening reception and was a decadent chocolate orange recipe (still one of my favourites!) and was covered in ombre teal ruffles.
150 cupcakes were served at the wedding breakfast as well as the evening reception and were a mix of chocolate, white chocolate and salted caramel flavours.
The galaxy decoration on the chocolate cupcakes was a special request from the bride as she adores this look!
Samuel's older brother chose the theme for this cake and I was delighted as it was based on one of my favourite childhood stories!
It was a must that the caterpillar looked just right so I made sure he was the centre of attention on the top of the cake. He was hand modelled using marbled modelling paste and he has been one of my favourite models to date!
As an additional colourful element to the cake, I suggested that the sponge inside also be a rainbow sponge and so this cake sat an impressive 6 layers high with the colours of the rainbow hidden inside!
Birthday and Anniversary Cake
This lovely cake was designed for a couple throwing a party to celebrate both their ruby wedding anniversary and a special birthday.
I used a palette of only three colours in this design: an ivory base, a ruby red for the anniversary element and a soft pink for the birthday element.
The colours complemented each other beautifully and made sure that both the anniversary and birthday were equally incorporated into the design.
I made 43 individual sugar roses for this cake - 40 small ones that were placed around the cake and the 3 large ones on the top.
