Your wedding cake: Consultation and tasting sessions/ sampling.

Hello my dear friends,

Recently, one of our tasting sessions has had the privilege to be photographed by very talented wedding London photographer Matt Bedenoch. I would also like Ana and François, our lovely couple.

So if you are thinking of booking one with us, this is what it looks like.

The cost of delivering and setting up a tiered naked wedding cake at your venue.

Bonjour lovelies,

A few couples have asked me how most cake designers calculate their delivery and set up costs. So I wanted to write this blog post to explain how it was being done. I hope you’l find it helpful.

I think naked cakes cannot just be dropped off at the venue, they need to be set up and decorated there and then, the main reason being the cake, being uniced will dry out if left out too long same applies to the fresh fruit and flowers we use for decoration. Secondly, it should be placed in its final spot and not moved about after set up.

As you can imagine, weekend or not, driving around London can be tricky (all that traffic and all those restrictions!) so it takes us approximately 3 hours to get to the venue, deliver and set up a naked cake. Obviously, it has to be reflected in the price.

So here is a recent one. Such fun!

Placing the cute toppers (awww). So Mr French Made, what do you think?

Adding the final touches. Tadaaaaaaa!

Naked wedding cakes: To a ‘naked’ year! and many more!

No fondant, just homemade, scrummy sponge based cakes that exposes the delicious flavours inside.

Hello lovely peeps,

We hope you had a great Christmas and now looking forward to 2015!

I wanted to drop you a quick line and show you some of our 2014 designs and thank all the beautiful couples who hired us to be part of their big day.

In 2014, here at French Made, we created lots of rustic inspired cakes, especially naked cakes and I’ll tell you a secret, they are going to be even bigger in 2015 with the new… ‘barely’… naked.. one!!! So, I thought I’d show you a few to give you some inspiration.
