We are obsessing over this ‘Treat Yourself’ Donut Wall by GingerRayUK

Perfect Pie

We are loving the Pork Pie wedding cake alternative! If you prefer savoury than sweet, why not chose one of the glorious pork pie tiers from, Perfect Pie – what’s great about this company is they create bespoke orders to suit your preference and work solid on one cake per week.

Our ‘go-to’ would be this – Classic Onion Marmalade pork pie, Sweet Chilli, Naked (traditional), Chorizo or Wiveton (lemon, parsley and garlic). Mmmm …


Crumbs and Dollies

Want something fun and unique? Head over to Crumbs and Dollies for some quirky, cool inspiration.

We are loving this modern take on an old-school, classic – Jammy Dodger. What do you think?

Raspberry Ripple Vanilla Sponge filled with raspberry goo, vanilla buttercream, raspberry jam splodge, topped with a Jammy Dodger.
