Glyn & Sagree’s Wedding
Earlier this year I met Glyn & Sagree, who were looking for an award-winning cake designer to make their wedding cake. In February, we met for a wedding cake consultation and had lots of fun discussing ideas over coffee and cake. Little did we all know how the following months would affect couples planning their weddings, and the wedding industry as a whole.
Lots of ideas were discussed, and just listening to them you could see how excited they were about their wedding at Chatsworth House. The main design feature they wanted was the fusion of Indian red colours with a traditional white English cake. After sketching various options and seeing Sagree’s stunningly beautiful wedding dress, which in the end took 17,500 hours to embroider, I knew that we had to include elements of this on the cake.
The final design was a 5-tier cake with delicate handmade sugar roses with a burgundy blush, an edible drape with matching detail from Sagree’s dress, and gold rose detailing around the edges of the tiers. The drape was made up of 9 individual pieces of sugar paste and each gold flower on the drape was made by hand or piped on. In the end, we used over 2,500 gold edible sugar balls.
As with all wedding couples, dates & venues started to move, and we had a small window for the wedding. Glyn & Sagree were absolutely brilliant! I had received a detailed picture of the design on Sagree’s wedding dress and during a Zoom call with her, she said, “I totally trust you Jo with the design on the drape”, a cake maker’s dream!
Wishing you both all the happiness and love in your married life xx
Testimonial from Glyn & Sagree
“We went to Joanna with our idea and designs for our wedding cake. She delivered an exceptionally beautiful cake which was even better than we imagined. She literally replicated my Indian wedding gown which had so much intricacies & the colour match was on point. My guests actually thought the draping was the actual wedding dress. Joanna was very professional and sat down with us twice and thoroughly took down all of the information as to what we wanted for our special day, and also let us taste every flavour of her fabulous cakes! There was great communication, & she produced a Masterpiece. It was decorated absolutely beautifully (the pictures speak for themselves) The cake was a big hit on our wedding day with people waiting to take pictures with it. The hardest part of the whole process was choosing the flavours for the layers as there was a great variety to choose from, all tasting superb.”
Joanna has now become the preferred choice for all our family weddings & birthday parties.
