​North West Wedding Cake Designer of the Year 2016 and 2017, The Frostery is firmly established as one of the country’s most exciting and creative cake designers. Experts in beautiful hand painting, intricate hand-piped detail, sculpted models, and hand-made sugar flowers, our mastery of traditional techniques combined with original, contemporary design ideas means that your cake can be exactly what you want it to be.

​The beauty of true bespoke wedding cake design is that everything is possible and any request can be met. Every cake here has it's own unique story.  Every new couple at The Frostery is treated as having their own unique requirements. We don't expect you to choose from a pre-existing range of cake designs, rather we will talk to you about your inspiration, your needs and your desires for your cake and design you a cake of your own.  In some cases this might be something like we've never done before or it might be a cake similar to one of our previous designs but it has to be the cake you want.

We want you to see the potential that exists for having your own bespoke cake designed, so this page is constantly updated with wedding cakes that we have made either for real weddings or for photoshoots.  It is our hope that these demonstrate our knowledge and expertise and show why The Frostery offers a unique service where the customer’s requirement takes precedence and the design of the wedding cake can be truly bespoke.

<![CDATA[Flourish]]>Tue, 05 Sep 2017 17:42:31 GMThttp://thefrostery.co.uk/bespoke-cake-design/flourish
Once you've chosen your cake designer, how do you then navigate the cake design maze? The wedding dress can give a big clue to the style of wedding so this is often the place we start when designing your cake. The design consultation is where we pull together all the pieces - all your ideas and inspiration - and ultimately solve the cake puzzle for you. 
If your dress has beautiful, intricate lace detailing then we can use the pattern to create the hand-piped design flourishes around the cake. Despite being small in stature, this cake provides an impact with its abundance of loose, natural, sugar flowers to match the brides bouquet.

This wedding cake was made for a wedding at The Principal Hotel, Manchester.  It is a more contemporary version of our Vintage Rose design. The design was tailored for the couple; an abundance of sugar flowers to mirror the bride's wedding bouquet on the top tier whilst the bottom tier was inspired by the bride's beautiful dress with sequin and beaded detail.  To retain the look of the original design the hand-painted roses dominate the middle tier but the navy blue ribbon adds elegance and sophistication.
