My fiancé’s mum has just baked the first tier of our wedding cake! It took six and a half hours to bake in the oven, has 102 cherries in it and will serve 120 guests.

Both my fiance and I stirred the cake mix and made a wish. Strange to think we’ll be cutting this same cake in 7 months!

Such beautiful cakes!

Wedding cake designer Shinmin Li started baking wedding cakes after training in fine art. It’s not that jarring of a change, if you think about it.

When my fiance’s friends got married last year, I bought my camera with me to take lots of photos of the day to give to the newlyweds to add to their collection. I recently looked again at the pictures and spotted something I hadn’t previously: their wedding topper.

Fancy a wibbly wobbly wedding? How about a jelly as a dessert? Or have a jelly buffet table rather than the ever popular candy buffet table?


British company Bompas & Parr create has a bespoke wedding jelly mould manufacturing service. Moulds, flavours and internal lighting are all designed to order.

As they say themselves “Wedding jellies are lighter and more refreshing than cakes. They are kinder to the stomach after a heavy meal so make it less likely for guest to fall asleep during the speeches!”. So if you have any ancient aunts inclined to take a snooze why not try jelly instead of dessert? Imagine the fun of the waiters bringing out all that wobbly jelly!

Prices start from £700 depending on scale and technical complexity.

Our first draft drawing of what we would like our wedding cake to look like.

There are plants, leaves and berries on the bottom teir all covered in frost and these trail up the cake, each tier becoming more plain as it goes up. The last tier is topped with two black roses.

My fiance sketched stripes on the middle tier but I’m not so sure about this. And we’re both still undecided on whether or not to have a bride and groom topper.
