Recently I delivered a wedding cake to Chilston Park Hotel, a stunning country house situated in the Kent countryside. Upon arrival at the house I was welcomed by what I can only describe as “wonderful staff” that made the delivery and set up run smoothly.

My lovely clients Philippa and Glen wanted a cake that was modern, clean and elegant but with a twist! Glen is a true fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so asked for this to be incorporated in to the cake without being too “in your face” of course, this could mean one thing…..the classic drain cover with the TMNT peeking out placed not so discretely on the cake board.. Two tiers of the cake were hand brushed with gold to match the topper that Philippa had provided. Gold twigs and a single magnolia flower rested on the bottom tier.


The cake stood proudly at the top of the very grand stair case and the guests were treated to some scrumptious flavours that included double chocolate with a rich chocolate ganache.

It isn’t often that I get to see the bride when I make deliveries but on this occasion I had the pleasure of seeing Philippa’s face light up when she saw the cake……What a picture! It was so lovely to see the whole bridle party looking at the cake and taking photos…..A very rare moment that I don’t usually get to see!

P.S Philippa….You looked stunning!!!
