2015 trend - Chalkboard Wedding cakes
The Artisan Cake Company
The Chalkboard style wedding cake is fast becoming a popular choice for brides after that unconventional style wedding or Vintage-rustic chic.
No more is the chalk board just a point of signage, but edible now too!
A fun alternative to any formal style wedding cake, the chalkboard cake can look equally as beautiful with hand painted details made to look like white or coloured chalk. With the addition of flowers, berries, ribbons and any other rustic accents, the design is softened and given that romantic feel that a wedding cake should have.
This cake created by Cotton & Crumbs shows how a single Chalkboard tier can provide an eye catching and fun addition to an otherwise formal style wedding cake.
If all an all black style wedding cake is a little too wild, then maybe just adding a signage topper or small chalkboard plaque is enough to bring that rustic charm to life.

We met with Sarah & Christopher back in February 2014 to discuss their Autumn wedding cake design. They came with some ideas, visuals and burnt orange colour scheme and together we created their leaf inspired wedding cake.
We made the leaves in advance and hand painted them before finishing with a spray coat to give them a waxed and realistic look.
The cake consisted of three tiers and was a mixture of delicious Vanilla sponge with raspberry conserve & Swiss meringue buttercream and Lemon sponge with lemon centre and SMB, Yum!
We constructed the cake in the last few days leading up to the wedding and sent a photo to Sarah to show her the completed design. Obviously we were delighted that she loved it and we did too!
The Wedding was held at Blackbrook House, Belper. All that was left was to deliver their cake and see how well it fitted into their Wedding style.
How wonderful it all looked! A fabulous array of autumn colours and natural materials. The cake was a wonderful compliment to a stunning setting and we thoroughly enjoyed creating for them! Thank you x
