The Cake Parlour Turns 1!

A whole cabinet dedicated to ruffle cakes! J'adore! 

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting cake designer extraordinaire Zoe Clark's boutique The Cake Parlour on the eve of its 1st anniversary. Since its opening, Zoe literally hadn't the time to organise a launch as she'd been inundated with clients for weddings and parties (oh, and writing fabulous books too) so it was a treat to finally view her beautiful shop and have a good old catch up!

Guests were treated to a delicious and sweet selection of confections to try and goodie bags were on hand to stock up with (yes, I took home plenty of cupcakes, biscuits, meringues and fancies and can confirm that they were indeed exceptionally good). 

In between sipping on my sparkling wine and mouthfuls of cake I managed to take a few photos of my favourites just for you...

Simple, yet so chic...

Macarons that Zoe & her team make by hand.

Mini cakes

Zoe's creations often take inspiration from bridal gowns as the fabrics and embellishments really spark her creativity. I love the idea of a couple's wedding cake reflecting elements of the bride's dress, it's a great way to tie everything into a cohesive design.

Exquisite piping.

If you're planning on surprising your guests with a dessert table Zoe's team can design and create everything for you which takes the inconvenience away from sourcing everything separately too. Perfect.

Thanks for a lovely evening Zoe and I'm very much looking forward to coming to play in the kitchen in the new year!
