Food of Love
One of the most romantic Valentine’s weekend stories we heard was of a local man who was out shopping with his girlfriend on Saturday 13th February and who then proposed to her. Firstly, he gets brownie points for going shopping; secondly he gets bonus brownie points for proposing at such an appropriate time of year. In these days of social media, the congratulations were flying on Facebook. But we wonder: did he think of buying her a sweet creation from Mama Cakes to celebrate getting engaged? Did he even know that he could have purchased a Valentine’s cake from us and used that to pop the question? We love the idea of designing a beautiful dreamy cake with a special space for an engagement ring…
Perhaps it’s because we’re all starry-eyed romantics here at Mama Cakes that some of our favourite types of cake are those for Valentine’s Day, engagement parties and weddings. With our order book currently just about full to the brim up until May, and the traditional season wedding fast approaching, we’re getting excited about the hearts, flowers and gorgeous designs which will be stepping forth from our studio this summer. It’s never too soon to book your wedding cake and start thinking about the design you’d like – you can change your design up until a month before the wedding, subject to any changes in price being agreed as well.
We’re also looking forward to attending some of the wedding fayre about to take place around north Cumbria: look out for us at the Crown and Mitre hotel in Carlisle on March 20th. Please come to say ‘hello’ and have a look at some of our designs. Don’t forget, if you are planning that special day – we can arrange a tasting consultation before you book.
And just to whet your appetite, have a quick look in our gallery at some of the previous wedding cakes we’ve made.
