I met Harriet from Iris & Fern at a wedding fayre at the end of 2019, and I was drawn in straight away - firstly by the beautiful cakes, secondly by the charming little napkins and extra lovely touches on the table, but mostly by how warm and lovely Harriet herself was!
Harriet is a cake-maker based in Birmingham who has won awards for her delicate and discerning designs. If it isn’t already obvious, Harriet has a background in fine art and now specialises in cakes which are adorned with sugar flowers and expertly hand-painted.
Her cakes are available in various flavours which sound absolutely delicious! Some of which are even made with her own homegrown produce, so vary accordingly through the seasons. Choosing a cake like this gives you a real opportunity to get creative, both with how it looks and how it tastes and I think we can all agree that these will certainly impress.
If you fancy one for your wedding, you can get in touch with Harriet and she will get to know you and your style, and build a quote and some designs tailored specifically to you. You’ll also be invited along to a tasting session, where you can sample the fabulous flavours and have a more in-depth chat about how you want the finished product to be. And you can take a couple of guests, too, so mum or bridesmaid can help you decide!
Harriet will lovingly create a design that suits you, and that blends perfectly with your day. She will even speak with your florist to match her floral designs to your flowers, and she’ll chat to your venue too about the logistics, so you won’t need to worry.
Harriet has made beautiful cakes for baby showers, birthdays and of course weddings too. And she also has a monthly Brownie Club - which has been a real lifeline during lockdown! With incredible flavours like raspberry ripple, peanut or nutella, or even white chocolate and pistachio blondies(!), there have been some real treats to be had.
This is elegance at its finest. You can check out the Brownie Club as well as more Iris & Fern designs on Instagram and on their website.
