I’m so very pleased to showcase Isle Of Wight Brides first sneak peek post!!
Jade Thorton of Petticoats and Frills Cakes new and upcoming island cake decorator shares with us, her new line of cakes “Thrifty“, to suit hopefully all budgets.
Here’s what Jade has to say about her “Thrifty”
I’ve tried to keep the range all under £2 a serving and all under the £250 price bracket, I got so much positive feedback from the brides at the wedding event, they were really impressed to learn that all my cakes on display were under £250. Most of the brides said that they would love to have a really elaborate cake covered entirely in handmade roses or something similar, but just couldn’t justify the price tag, what with higher priorities like dress, venue, photographer etc to fork out for. One bride told me she was quoted £600 for her dream cake by a cake-maker which was more than her dress, she then showed me a pic of her dream cake and it was a very elaborate design, so I can understand why she was quoted that much, but I then went over the design with her and explained ways of cutting down costs by scaling it down in size slightly, making a few simple changes to the design, i managed to reduce the cost to £200 so within her budget. Hopefully this new range will help brides to see that less decoration and clean lines can be just as striking but without an unaffordable price-tag!
Its a bit nerving revealing it all, But I hope it’s well received and the prices are competitive enough.
And heres just a few from Jades selection Like what you’ve seen so far? well keep your eyes peeled as there will be more revealed tomorrow on her facebook page.
