Here at Crumbs & Doilies we love a wedding, and as we move into summer this can only mean one thing… wedding season!
This dessert table from Joe and Annie’s special day included a mouth watering selection of different cakes and bakes, and we think that the end result looked awesome.
Congratulations, Joe and Annie!
We were honoured to be asked to make a birthday cake for Sir Ian Mckellen, so the incredibly talented Head of the C&D Kitchen, Sally, set to work designing this beautiful cake. Complete with gold foil detail, macarons and custom meringues, this cake has it all, with the final effect being both elegant and fun.
Happy Birthday, Ian!
Whether you made it onto the guest list for the wedding of the year, or were one of the 13.1 million people in the UK who tuned in to watch Meghan & Harry’s big day, we’re sure you’ll agree that their wedding was picture perfect.

Last week we were thrilled to be invited to host an exclusive cupcake decorating workshop at the beautiful Kate Spade Regent st store. 10 lucky Crumbs and Doilies fans had their finger on the pulse, and were the first to sign up within minutes of us posting the event opening on our instagram feed. Our very own baking extraordinaire Sally took the group through their paces, sharing some of our well honed decorating secrets. The workshop was a great success and I think you will all agree, these ladies aced it!
When we received a fun request to help with a Moon Landing themed birthday cake we couldn’t wait to help!

This March saw the 10th birthday of our favourite animated series Simon’s cat. In-case, unlike us, you have never lost hours of your evening to this addictive cartoon, let us introduce you! Simon’s cat follows the adventures of a mischievous and often hilarious fat white cat and his ever suffering owner Simon. Over the last 10 years their youtube following has grown to an impressive 4 million followers and what better way to celebrate than with cake! Here’s a sneak peak of the cake that we made for the party.
Take a look at our behind the scenes video here to see the work that went into this creation. Focusing on the amazing hand painted pictures and the making of the Simon’s Cat 3D model on top. If you haven’t seen any of the hilarious animations over on the Simon’s Cat channel, you MUST MUST MUST! – take a look here to see just what you have been missing out on!
Take a look at these awesome cupcakes made to celebrate the making of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which is out in cinemas this month. Adapted from the best selling novel, this is the story of a book club in Guernsey which was formed during the German occupation in the Second World War. Featuring hand made potato peel pies, gin bottles, letters, and printed book covers, we think that these super fun cupcakes fit the theme perfectly!
