Organic Fortnight - Cakes

We thought we'd celebrate Organic Fortnight by highlighting some of the wonderful organic products availabe to couples planning an eco-chic wedding celebration starting off today with cakes:

Cupcakes, 'crottins' cakes or pavlovas piled high with strawberries and cream. Organic carrot cake, fruit cake, chocolate or hazelnut. Filled with cream, buttercream, fruit puree or lemon curd. Covered with buttercream, royal icing, marzipan or fondant. Tiered local organic cheeses or even an organic pork pie, the choice of wedding cakes today is endless. Where to start?

Well, start by finding someone who will make a cake with organic, natural and fair trade ingredients and if you're not going down the road of making it yourself or getting your long suffering Mum to do it for you here are a couple of creative cake makers using fine ingredients and organic where possible.

Janine Rose provides a completely bespoke wedding cake service, supplying beautiful and exceptional cakes baked to order using only the finest ingredients. We will design your wedding cake to compliment the colours and style of your special day, while Amanda Baird at The Utterley Sexy Cafe expresses her creativity and individual design, making fabulously exquisite cakes in her own inimitable way. The cakes come in a variety of flavours and are made from the finest ingredients, including local free range eggs. Using her painterly skills straight onto the cakes, they become truly edible art.
