Wedding Planning is GO!

It must be the time of year… Christmas is out of the way and if, like me, you’re getting married this year, you suddenly realise that Summer is not too far away and your wedding, which seemed to be AGES away, is only round the corner!
Recently we have had a lot of enquiries regarding Wedding Favours, Wedding Cakes & even Table Decorations. Our bakers love trying out new ideas and recipes and love the challenge of producing something different for our customers. There are some photos below of special treats we have been trying out.
Take the pastel coloured meringues, which are going to look gorgeous as a table centrepiece tumbling out of a large glass jar – a whole lot more cost effective than a vase full of roses too!
Meringues
We have created shortbread hearts dipped in Belgian chocolate and sprinkled with dried lavender flowers which will look beautiful as favours for each guest.
White Shortbread
Milk Shortbread
French Macaroons are establishing themselves as a firm favourite for favours and we have added a twist with interesting flavours such as Champagne, Blueberry & Creme de Cassis. They have also been dusted with gold lustre giving them a luxurious feel.

How about this for a cake inspired idea? Giant cupcake cases used as a base for beautiful flower arrangements. You could use smaller ones and create a flower cupcake tower. Usually it's the bakers who steal ideas from nature, not this time!

If you have imaginative, exciting ideas for your big day and need someone to make them a reality why not send us an email on admin@dorringtons.com or pop along to our website http://www.dorringtons.com.
