Weddng cake

My daughter is getting married in Hanmer springs in March. I am not confident enough to make the wedding cake. Emailed a couple of Christchurch bskeries they havent replied. Any recomendations as who can make me a beautiful cake that doesn't cost the earth. She wants 2 tier pretty simple cake. Quoted $430 in Auckland

Why don't you consider making the cake and then getting an expert to ice it?

What sort of cake are you or your daughter actually wanting. ie fruit or chocolate mud cake

Try Kidds in ChCh or Rangiora Bakery.

You could contact one of the cafes in Hanmer to see if they can do wedding cakes. Also agree with Kidds or Rangiora bakery. I am making the cakes for my daughter's wedding and getting it iced.

I know someone who does wedding cakes in christchurch. Are you still interested?

Try Patsy-anne at clever cookie, she does really beautiful cakes, and VERY reasonable prices! She's based in christchurch. As a cake decorator, I thought I'd mention- this time of year is massively busy for us all, some of us go days without sleep to get orders done, speaking for myself, I dont always get time to answer emails and quotes very quickly- just thought I'd mention it, and apologize for some not getting back to you :-)

Would you have a phone number for Patsy Anne ?

I do weeding cakes as well in fact just using my recipe to do a 16"x 16" one :) I use the Australian Womens Weekly Cookbook has great size variations as well and never let me down use it for Xmas Cakes as well I make for others. I made a Chelsea Sugar recipe Xmas cake for my yearly donation to local Hospice and it was horrible sunk and tasted like yuck and the very first failed fruit cake I have ever made and I have made many 100's of them. Keep meaning to email them and tell them. So went bake to tried and true and as I say have a huge one here waiting to be iced. I don't normally do icing as such on my cakes for weeding and the likes as it's not my line of thing leave that to the experts. I build cakes :) And do other catering. :) And must get on with the day ahead and do what needs to be done for this function.
