Purple Flour is proud to provide bespoke wedding cakes that not only look incredible, but taste amazing too. Claudia Newberry, founded Purple Flour back in 2010 which has since flourished into a truly successful cake company. Claudia has managed to turn her passion into a reputable business, and her testimonials page is filled with glowing comments. Claudia’s work has also been featured in Hello magazine, when she baked a cake for Prince William. This wedding cake designer uses the highest quality ingredients in all her cakes - for example, using real vanilla beans rather than vanilla essence or paste, and actual Belgian chocolate. Cakes can be decorated in almost any way you wish - including floral decoration, organic fruit, buttercream or decorated Royal icing, to name a few.
Sponge cake flavours include:
All sponges are moist, flavoursome and light, and are paired with layers of buttercream or ganache that complements the flavour of the sponge. So, for example, the lemon cake is layered with a lemon curd buttercream, and the coffee and walnut sponge is layered with an espresso buttercream.
Fruit cakes are also a speciality, made to Claudia's mother-in-law's recipe, which have been baked a minimum of two months in advance after the fruit has been soaked in brandy for two weeks, to make sure it is deliciously moist and has that rich fruit cake flavour. It's traditional to have these atop a wedding cake, to then serve at your first child's christening!
Most flavours are available as cupcakes, gluten free and no-egg options.
It is advisable to contact Purple Flour at least 3 to 6 months before your big day, as Claudia takes a limited number of commissions to ensure every cake gets the care and attention it needs. You will then be invited for a consultation to go over flavour and decoration options. Finally, leave it to Claudia to create the wedding cake of your dreams!
With wedding cake prices starting from £150 per tier (depending on the intricacy of the design), you will be able to have a gorgeous cake without breaking the bank. Plus, you can let your guests know that your wedding cake was created by the same person who baked for Prince William!
