Contemporary Floating Wedding Cake with Edible fabric drape. A stylish wedding cake for a modern couple. Make a statement with your wedding cake.

From the moment I saw Liz’s instagram page, I knew she was the one for us. My husband and I didn’t want a traditional wedding cake. We wanted a unique and contemporary take that reflects our style and personalities. Liz took her time during the consultation to understand our story, how we met and how we got engaged. She is very talented and so professional. All of the flavours we had were outstanding and her designs were exceptional. She went out of her comfort zone to create our stunning dream cake, despite the logistical challenges. I cannot recommend Liz enough – thank you so much!!

My husband and I did not want a “traditional wedding cake” so when searching we were lucky enough to stumble across CakeBuds. From the moment we saw Liz’s designs, we knew she was the one to create our dream cake and my god, she did not disappoint! The cake was everything we wanted and more. Liz really is not just a baker, she is an artist and it just takes a scroll through her Instagram to see every cake she makes (to perfection) is absolutely incredible. Ours really was no exception. We had endless complements and I am not embarrassed to admit that it was so good we had it for breakfast lunch and dinner every day following the wedding. We cannot wait to order a tasting box soon. Thank you Liz for everything

“Liz made our wedding cake this summer and it was absolutely incredible. It was better than we could have imagined and looked perfect in the ballroom set up. She listened to all our random ideas and pulled them together to make the wedding cake we could only dream of! Liz was brilliant at helping us find a new date after a few postponements and also helped us with the modern cake stand that created an extra wow factor. All our guests and even our wedding planner said it was the best wedding cake they’ve ever seen and it also tasted amazing too! Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day we will be forever grateful.”
