Although for most brides, its a bit early for ceremonies and wedding receptions, most brides are still ready to celebrate. Im talking about bridal shower season. Now is the time, and my calendar is filling up with them!
This year a new creation we featured were these adorable mini three tiered cakes:
One bride to be had these little cakes at her shower as a dessert, one for each guest. These little vanilla sponge cakes were so moist and flavourful, they didn't need the icing (and needless to say the bride and the bridesmaids were happy to save the calories!) They were served apres lunch with a side of fresh berries.
These little cakes are also available from Le Gateau in Chocolate sponge, Vegan cake, and if your feeling extra delectable: dark chocolate brownie.
And for the guests to take home there were these cookie favours, made from our sugar cookie recipe, decorated with royal icing.
But for the brides that want to make a big impact, sometimes you just have to give them a big cake!
This cake was our decadent chocolate sponge cake with chocolate ganache filling made from Callebaut chocolate. The teal and white colour are the chosen wedding colours.

Happy Easter everyone! This year for Easter Le Gateau featured chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream topped with jellybean "easter eggs". I also made bunny and chicks fondant toppers, as well as little flag toppers made from easter ribbon.
And of course there were matching easter cookies! Classic sugar cookie with fondant icing.
