Bake it yourself – gorgeous goodies for your big day!

Many brides-to-be are now choosing to make their own edible wedding favours and gifts, giving their special day a much more personal touch. Making your own also means you can save money and have exactly what you want, with your imagination as the only limit!

Parisian-style macaroons

Pretty pastel colour macaroons are perfect wedding favours and they are so easy to make with Instant Macaroon Mix. Customise your macs to match your colour theme – try pale blue macaroons with edible pearls studded around the middle and presented in pretty boxes tied with ribbon for the chicest of favours.

 

Regal glamour

Give your very own wedding a distinctively royal touch with the crown mould from Squires Kitchen. Use the mould to make little edible crowns for your cakes and desserts, decorate with edible metallic lustre dusts for a brilliant shine and add sparkling jewels with SK Scintillo piping gel.

 

Tiny treats

Miniature cupcake cases are a quarter of the size of standard cupcakes meaning you can make pretty, bite-sized cakes perfect for wedding favours. These cute cases are available on squires-shop.com in many colours to complement your colour scheme. Top with icing and a single sugar blossom.

 

Romantic roses

If your style is country garden, think mismatched vintage tableware, wild flowers in jam jars, bunting and roses. Bake cupcakes in baroque style cupcake cases and top with fruit fondant icing and a little sugar rose, a crystallized rose or a crystallized violet. Check out Squires Kitchen’s easy-to-use rose mould that you push your modelling paste into to make a perfectly complete, classic rose shape – so simple!

 

Delicious desserts

A popular alternative to the usual single wedding cake is a table full of favourite desserts for your guests to choose from. Classics include Victoria sponge, chocolate fudge cake, jelly, ice cream and piles of brownies – make labels or flags to match your invites and colour scheme to stand in front of each one so your guests can choose for themselves. Each dessert can be displayed on cake stands and finished with beautiful decorations such as gold leaf, chocolate roses, sugar decorations, icings and sprinkles.
