Our First Wedding Fayre
Our first visit to a wedding fayre as a stallholder went really well and was also highly enjoyable – it was great to meet so many of you and even better to know that so many people had already heard of Mama Cakes. It made Claire’s sleeplessness the previous night all worthwhile! Just to fill you in on a bit of background, we needed two cars to carry everything: one reserved for cakes alone and the other for business cards, flyers, sample cakes in a box, etc…
Back at Mama Cakes it has prompted plenty of discussion about weddings we’ve been to and what we liked, what we didn’t, and what our perfect wedding would entail (money no object of course, in our dream world). One thing we all agreed on was that the cake is a key element of the day so it has to be right.
So -what makes a great wedding cake? With as many views as there are types of cake, debate in the Mama Cakes office was lively. Ideally we’d like all the guests to enjoy a slice, so that means being acceptable to different palates and ages from 1 to 100. Some of us don’t like fruit cake of any description; some loathe marzipan; others don’t like icing. We all loved the idea of a multiple-choice cake (different flavours for different layers) and we all agreed it has to look stunning and taste divine. After all, the cake often has almost as many photographs taken of it as do the bride and groom!
We felt that it has to fit in with the theme of the wedding as well, whether that’s pink and flowery, classic and classy or a rustic affair in a beautifully decorated barn. So whatever style of wedding you’ve chosen, we’re keen to help make your dreams come true. Pick up the phone or pop us an email and get the conversation going. If you’re feeling short of inspiration, why not have a look in our gallery – or visit some of the many wedding websites (we particularly like Rock my Wedding).
Meanwhile if you’re out and about in our corner of north-east Cumbria, look out for the Mama Cakes car. This smart black vehicle now has the Mama Cakes logo painted on its side, and it’s not just used for the school run but for delivering cakes too. If you spot it, send us an email to say where you saw us: we’d like to know whether our advertising is effective. Recently we were delivering christening cake: which takes us back full circle to wedding cakes. If you want a cake where the top tier is saved until the christening of your first baby, then we’ll do our best, but actually we think cake is best eaten fresh… and who could resist our glorious creations?
And to finish with a thought-provoking question: how many tiers did the tallest wedding cake ever made have?
