Handmade cakes - My top five most-read blog posts of 2022

Hello there! I’m delighted to be back with most probably the last blogpost of this year. And here I’m going to share the best of 2022 in terms of my most-read blog posts on handmade cakes.

Although I wrote this one in 2021 this is still proving very popular. This blog is a bit like a testimonial. However, I didn't just want to share a review on my social media. I thought it would be more interesting if I tell you the whole story of this elegant handmade cake. So I did in this blog post recording every detail from taking the order to the finishing touches. I’m so glad I took this last minute order on as the design has been requested many times since then. Go on, click on the link to read it 😉

Macarons might possibly be the most sophisticated dessert. They come in many different colours, many different flavours, with many different fillings and toppings. These timeless confections have always been peculiar in many respects. In this blog you can learn why their appearance, texture, filling and taste is superior to other handmade cakes and desserts.

When you’re planning a wedding you have to consider a lot of things, things that you often don’t even think of... I got married once and it was the best day of our lives but we now say we would do this or that differently.

So to help you with choices for your cake decoration I wrote this blog where you can read about different kinds of flowers that your cake can be decorated with. I also included some pros and cons of each type so hopefully it will help you make the right choice.

When it comes to wedding cakes most often they are associated with simple buttercream aka American style buttercream. However there's a few other types of buttercreams that cakemakers use for handmade wedding cakes. I'd just like to tell you about the benefits of one of them which is the light an airy Swiss meringue buttercream. It is probably the most standard buttercream for pastry professionals as it is incredibly smooth and easy to work with.

There is a detailed explanation in my blog why we should choose it more often for fillings but briefly because I think it's the queen of buttercreams 👑👑👑 .

Even though I set a foot in the wedding cake industry I decided to launch a kid's birthday cake range earlier this year. Before I made the decision, I had been getting endless enquiries about kid's birthday cakes. To be honest these enquiries very rarely turned into orders. And I knew the reason, it only came down to one thing... the only one thing that this world revolves around... the price. After sending out quotes, people would say (that's if I got any answer back at all) I really like your cakes, they are absolutely beautiful but unfortunately it's just out of my price range.

If you’re intrigued head over to the blog to find out what this handmade cake range is, what it includes and how much they cost.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my round up of 2022. And if you're in search of a handmade cake I would most definitely like to hear from you. Click here to contact me.
