Personal Touches for the Perfect Wedding

So it’s probably not a massive concern to the bride – I mean in the grand scheme of things does it matter if the font on the table number matches the label on the wedding favour? YES! Yes it does – well it does to us haha … DelliPops tend to get involved in your wedding planning process quite near the end and help with the finishing touches to the big day. Usually our process means that you pay your ¬£50 deposit to secure your date and then we get back in touch about six weeks before your wedding to finalise your wedding cake style. By that point the Bride and Groom have already settled on the venue dressing and the table centre designs and what is still left to plan is the favours, place name cards, Table numbers or names signs.

DelliPops have a couple of different ideas for wedding favours – all edible obviously!

 

Doughnut wedding favours and cake pop or cookie wedding favours can be individually packaged to remain fresh and so can be delivered nationwide – order here

 

 

We have a great solution if you are planning a wedding breakfast where you will have a table plan – instead of buying place name tent cards and favours – combine the two – have our unique DelliPops Place Settings. An upside down cake pop with a bespoke label – the guest name on the front (instead of a boring place name card) and a personalised message from the newlyweds on the back.

 

So this is where we get all obsessy (yeah I know not a word) about fonts and matching graphics. The DelliPop Wedding Cake Pops in the pic above have place name labels with a graphic and font to match the beautiful table name sign designed by a local graphic design led wedding stationer. Doesn’t it all look lovely together ūüôā

 

These realistic red apple cake pops we made recently are a perfect example of how a great wedding favour combined with a place name label can be the perfect finishing touch for a really unique and personalised wedding¬† – check out the Disney font “Happily Ever After” and the guests name is on the ‘leaf’ of snow white’s red apple – A perfect Disney themed wedding – aren’t the table centres awesome!

A glitzy glam cake pop for a glamorous wedding at 30 James Street, Liverpool – again we co-ordinated – instead of a place name tent card the bride chose to give each guest a DelliPop favour with their name on to direct them to the right seat. We designed the favour tag to compliment the table centres as they were mostly foliage rather than flowers and. We used a eucalyptus graphic which was also used for the table number signs – we love to make these for the wedding table to look really well put together!

Sian & Vince

For Sian and Vince’s wedding, we took the lead on all the graphic design and used a beautiful blush pink summer wreath graphic based on their pretty floral centrepieces and we used a bold boho script font that all worked together fantastically. We made the happy couple their seating plan, table number signs, sweet table sign and place name labels to turn their cake pop favours into place settings.

7 Best DelliPop Style Wedding Cakes

I am sooooo rubbish at blogging – Life is just too busy I guess and writing doesn’t come naturally to me at all – not like chatting – that comes super easy ūüėČ

Thought I’d do a little round up of our favourite wedding cakes of the year so far, mainly because I have just taken the advice of upgrading our Pinterest from personal to business and i need some original pins … prepare for an image laden post ha ha …

Definitely our winner this year, we loved making this massive chocolate laden croquembouche style tiered wedding cake creation for this stunning couple at 30 James Street, Liverpool. Such a dramatic styled Hotel totally needed this over the top wedding cake full of Lindt Chocolate that we hand painted gold, silver and pearl with Ruby KitKat, handmade pink popcorn, bridal satin chocolate covered oreos, antique gold heart shaped cookies, and our delicious DelliPop cake pops.

img_20181019_231412bit of a cheat as it’s not strictly a wedding cake but come on we are DelliPops Cakery – we make so many wedding cake favours that we can totally justify it .. right? We particularly loved these pretty antique vintage lace style mocha wedding pops with a stylish bride pop and cute groom pop in his pink dickie bow

img_20181007_143030 Another of our white chocolate abstract painted and textured wedding cakes. This one had blush silk blooms and gold love topper. There was so much texture on this cake which was highlighted with bridal satin and pearl white lustre so that it really shimmered in the light, such a pretty effect.

fb_img_1539475580542

Our favourite naked cake of the year – only a 2 tier semi naked buttercream wedding cake but it was the first of the new autumn season and we got to dress it with those succulent figs and massive juicy blackberries. Plus it was at Chateau Rhianfa right on the Menai Straits, an incredible breathtaking venue that makes you feel really special! (Or really, really nervous second-guessing your cake skills because it’s such a salubrious venue haha)

img_20181007_150628Not the greatest picture of this massive tower of donuts and cake pops but it makes a fabulous alternative wedding cake!

IMG_20180128_082521

Our Boho Chic Chocolate 4 Tier Wedding cake was perfect for the vintage, hessian, jute and lace themed wedding. The gold touches in the foliage and the arty splashes of gold against the chocolate looked really great, especially with the pale pink and peach blooms.

Adventure Awaits

Ooh we’ve had a creative week at Dellipops!¬† In fact every order had some element that I’d never done before but hey, life is boring if there’s no challenge! Right? Try still thinking positive at 2am when your 3rd attempt at gluten free, Vegan doughnuts are the texture of burnt biscuits ūüė¶¬† ¬†This weeks wedding cake pop favours were another first – hand piping chocolate in the shapes of continents to make the pops look like little globes for a lovely couple with a travel themed wedding reception after they tied the knot in Italy last week. I’m actually really pleased with how they turned out and, proving that prep is the key to success, after I printed some reference images of the earth viewed from space (honestly I really did) they were actually a bit easier to do than I’d imagined.

Globe Inspired Cake Pops – Travel Themed Wedding Reception

The cake we’ve made this week is for a man’s 65th Birthday, completely different than our usual chocolate drip cakes and I absolutely love it! The bottom tier is vanilla, strawberry and white chocolate with a pinata centre filled with his favourite sweets and the top tier is a ‘Mars Bar’ cake – chocolate fudge cake, milk chocolate ganache, dulche de leche caramel and sliced mars bars! It’s such a great tasting cake and a fantastic choice for a party (it keeps really well too and is awesome warm with ice-cream)

IMG_20180622_201519.jpg
Inside DelliPops Mars Bar Cake

The outside of the cake is rustic finished white chocolate ganache with a handmade milk chocolate sailboat and anchor which is sailing on hand carved chocolate ganache waves. I’m so grateful to the client for letting me persuade her to have something bespoke rather than the usual sweetie topped candy and chocolate explosion drip cakes – although I do love making them too.

IMG_20180623_133120.jpg

We also had a custom doughnut order for a wedding doughnut wall (and no I can’t make gluten free, vegan donuts – you’ll have to make do with my gf, v chocolate & caramel Muffins) My favourite is the salted caramel glaze with caramel frosting heart

IMG_20180622_144838

It seems as if there’s been 2 themes running through everything … caramel and travel! I find travel themed party and wedding images really inspiring – I’d love to do a vintage travel photoshoot – I’ve already got the pinterest board ready!!!

Birthdays and Christmas – Poptastic December

This week it’s been lovely to have a reprieve from all the Christmas festivities, fayres and themed cake pops and make some pretty girly pops for a lovely young ladies birthday.

Pretty Birthday Cake Pops

I really like how these turned out … there was no real brief other than ‘girls birthday’ so I got the opportunity to make something I’d enjoy and to use my new frills and frosting mini cases by Talking Tables. They’d be great for any age birthday really or Mother’s Day or just afternoon tea .. any excuse for a cake pop really!

Like I said it was nice to take a break from making Xmas pops because I have made quite a few over the last few weeks .. a Christmas wedding ¬†with a 100 festive pops and then I’ve done Xmas pud style cake pops for two Christmas fayres with Porridge & Pumpernickel.

Budget Bakes: DIY Wedding Cake Tips & Tricks

I found this great post from One fab day¬†and thought I’d share it with you. If you are thinking about your budget and don’t want to spend a fortune on the cake then these are some great ideas and the best place to start.

Seeing as all the brides I know are on the DIY wedding buzz, we thought we should examine one of the most accessible ways to add that personal touch to the day Рa DIY Wedding Cake. In theory this is a straightforward DIY but In reality, preparing your own wedding cake can be a tricky proposition as you are in a time-crunch; only able to prepare the cake a couple of days before the wedding. To ensure your cake is a success we have some helpful DIY Wedding Cake Tips & Tricks

Before you Bake Your Own Wedding Cake

Even if you are a fantastic baker, making your own wedding cake can be an extra stress you just don’t need in the run up to the big day. Be realistic, and before you start bookmarking recipes, ask yourself a few important questions (and be honest!)…

  • How experienced are you at baking? Have you made the cake many times before, or is this an experiment?
  • How many hours of baking, and crucially, decorating, time will you need?
  • Do you have that amount of time in the days before the wedding, when things are ¬†going to be crazy-busy?
  • Can you make a comeback from¬†burned fruit cake, runny fondant or sticky sugar flowers?
  • Do you have all the baking supplies and tools available to you and if not, how much will it cost to buy it all?
  • Make sure to always have a back-up plan – things happen, no matter how skilled you are at baking.

Ask for Help from Family or Friends

Even if you are a great baker you’ll inevitably have a lot of other planning and organising to do before your wedding so why not ask a talented baker pal or family member to help out. Here are some guidelines if you decide to…

  • If they are not confident enough to take on your entire wedding cake ask them to make a mixture of their favourite cakes to go on display for a dessert table
  • You could also ask a number of your guests to bring along some of their finest home-baked goodies to add to the table
  • If you have an idea in your head of the style of cake you want send them on some images or share a pinterest board so that you’re both on the same page
  • Even DIY wedding cakes can work out pricey so be realistic and don’t ask for anything OTT
  • Ask your venue if it’s ok to bring in homemade cake, there are rules and regulations around this so best to ask before any baking begins
  • Don’t forget about transporting the cakes to your venue – have a plan in place, especially if the cake/cakes are of a delicate nature

Fabulous DIY Decorations for Wonderful Wedding Cakes

So you (or a friend/family member) are baking the cake, and making sure that it’s yummy, but don’t forget that it has to look as good as it tastes. Depending on your¬†wedding colour palette, look ortheme, there are lots of easy ways to jazz up a shop-bought or homemade wedding cake.¬†Here are some of our favourites…

  • Fresh Flowers: Ask your florist for some extra blooms that tie in with your colour scheme to be added to the cake
  • Classic Wedding Cake Pillars:¬†Little pillars that go in between the layers can be store bought and add that traditional wedding cake touch
  • Go Metallic: Spray your cake with metallic spray paint ¬†like one of these shimmery metallic cakes
  • Hand-Paint your Cake:¬†¬†This is not for the amateur, but if you’re a talented artist then something you could have a go at – check out our post on¬†hand-painted wedding cakes¬†for some inspiration
  • Ribbon: Tie some ribbon¬†in with your chosen colours – a simple but elegant touch. Check out Vibes & Scribes¬†or The Party Parlour for a good selection
  • Cake Toppers, Flags & Bunting: From classic couple toppers to cute animal cake toppers, cake flags and bunting – check out Project Party for some great options
  • Make your own Decorations¬†for the cake with beautiful cut-outs or moulds,¬†or add cute ornaments, teacups or funky bow ties
  • Sugar Decorations: Find¬†sugar craft flowers¬† and gum-paste at¬†Decobake¬†and¬†The Crafters Basket
  • Cake Stands: Hire or buy a gorgeous¬†cake stand (Tiger often have great inexpensive ones)¬†– this will give even the simple home-made or shop-bought cake a very pretty touch.

DIY Wedding Cake Secret – Shop-Bought!

If you don’t feel confident enough to tackle the cake but still want to cut costs why not consider a shop-bought cake?¬†¬†Marks and Spencers,¬†Asda¬†and¬†Tesco¬†all now have a great selection of plain¬†white iced fruit cakes, or more alternative wedding cake options.

So, what do you think?  Are you going to DIY your wedding cake or rope in a talented friend or family member? Anyone have any tips or ideas to share?
