Welcome to Karen's Cakes website.
If you are looking for a wedding cake that is understated but with a touch of luxury we believe this design ticks the box. The top edge is embellished with silver or gold leaf and there are tiny additional pieces scattered around that catch the light adding to the look. The top tier can be coated in a pastel colour with a matching 12mm ribbon at base, make you choice by filling in the ‘colour scheme’ box in the ‘order your cake’ section on this page. There is also the option to add the flower spray shown in the pictures.
This 2 tier wedding cake comes in one size giving around 70 to 80 portions. The bottom tier is 20cm (8″), the top 15cm 6″) and both are approximately 13cm (5″) tall.
Flavour – You can choose to have your cake all in one flavour or two different flavours but there is a £15 additional charge for this. The bottom tier will be your first choice and the top tier will be your second choice. Please note that you are not able to choose the fruit option for your top tier if choosing any of the other flavours for your bottom tier.
Choose flavour/s, colour scheme etc and collection or delivery date required by filling in the drop down boxes in the ‘order your cake’ the selection box on this page.
