Hope & Ed Fotheringham Smith (Wedding June 2016) Penshurst Place, Penshurst, Kent

We’re so happy that we found Liz and Sylvia’s Kitchen. Having seen several wedding cake designers across London and the South East we had a fair idea of what we could expect but Liz rewrote that. She is thoroughly warm and lovely, and deeply professional  – we had total trust in her which is so important when project managing a wedding. Liz really listened to us, gave great ideas and discussed our design and flavours to ultimately develop an exquisite design. I put a copy of the sketch up on my mirror I was so excited! On the day our cake was devastatingly glorious. With fine piping and a luminous eau de nil base colour, particular mention must go to the symphony in delicate sugar flowers (thistles, hops, roses, lisianthus, berries – hardly straightforward!) which had people gasping in delighted realisation upon getting close enough – very close indeed – to see they weren’t fresh flowers. We are perfectionists and foodies and really cared about the cake, hoping for a centrepiece, a strikingly elegant but personal design with perfect execution and this is what Liz delivered – and our guests loved it before they’d even had one taste of the scrumptiously decadent cake itself!  We cannot thank you enough, Liz – you gave us perfection with added joy!
