Here is the news...latest cakes and events.
A bevy of beauties...
As the busy summer season slows, it's time to post a selection of photos from the past few months. Big, small, beautiful, bold, classical, quirky... every one makes me feel full of love.
I'm very proud of my babies, hope you like them too ;)
As Autumn takes hold, bold colours brighten each day
From classic elegance, to love birds on a tree stump, it's been a busy year in Kasserina-land
and with some great cakes lined up over Christmas, the fun's not over yet!
We've got some exciting projects lined up to next year too; wedding, birthdays, styled shoots...
Meanwhile, a big thank you to all our clients, collegues and friends.
Wedding season is in full swing
It's been quite a summer so far, and it's been a real honour to be part of the weddings
of such lovely couples.
The weather may not always have been on our side, but love has shone through every time!
Rainbows and flowers and drums and pups...
Honestly, I'm so excited about what's going on right now!
There is so much fun stuff coming up and there are so many new cake design sketches hanging up on the confirmed orders board that I'm dying to show you... but until the "hush-hush" becomes a "look what we did!", just wanted to show you some of the gorgeous things that have come out of the Kasserina kitchen in the past couple of months.
A quick round up
A very Happy New Year to all our customers and friends.
Hope your holiday season was as much fun as ours and that Santa bought you lots and lots of goodies!
I'm a bit behind posting, so here's a quick montage of some recent work.
Lots of exciting things coming up too. It's go, go, go at Kasserina HQ.
Whoohoo! Loving 2017 already.
It's been an amazing time for my old friends, the Blaine Brothers.
They wrote, directed and released their first feature film "Nina Forever". Since then, it's been lauded all over the world, winning awards and being championed by reviewers.
Now it's available on Amazon on DVD, Blue-ray or via Streaming services.
I love this film, it's well worth buying
The amazing Oliver Russell shot it, it's got an an incredible cast, is beautifully designed and styled and will honestly surprise you with it's humour and nuance.
To celebrate the DVD release the directors, Ben and Chris, did a whirlwind tour of the U.K. at selected cinemas with special showings of the film and a Q&A session afterwards. I caught up with them at the Ritzy cinema in Brixton and, of course...I brought cake.
You can see the making of this cake on my blog:
30% off your wedding jewellery
Another great deal to check out!
Charlotte at Chalk Designs makes the most beautiful jewellery, inspired by nature and absolutely perfect for a bride or as bridesmaids gifts.
She is having a 30% off spring sale. Well worth taking advantage of!
You can check out her collections via the website, or give her ring to talk about a bespoke design. She's honestly lovely.
This week is all about cake experimentation as have some special requests coming up over the next few months. Have been gathering recipes, tweaking flavours and combining techniques to make them more Kasserina (ie. richer / fresher / more yum!). Very happy with the results!
My new favourites are:
Triple caramel mud cake with salted caramel frosting
Lime, yogurt and rose cake with raspberry ripple frosting
Ginger and rhubarb cake with ginger fudge frosting
strawberry and rosewater cake with strawberry compot and champagne frosting
Coffee, cardamom and walnut cake with brown butter frosting
Next on the list is a lime honey and pistachio cake with orange blossom, and a marshmallow frosting.
The beach ready figure may have to wait but hey, this is more fun anyway!
Of course, there's been no slacking on the sugarcraft either. Here're some photos of recent cakes.
No time to fully update the gallery, it's busy busy busy in the sugar studio at the moment prepping for all the upcoming cakes. Here're a few of the latest additions to our back catalogue though. Hope you enjoy! xxxx Kass.
Happy to announce a new addition to our happy family of trusted suppliers (see The Links Effect page in the menu bar).
