Libby Dalrymple, formerly of Eden Cakes and Cupcakes and Gen Lawley, formerly of Madam Macaron decided to join their successful businesses  and join forces to create the amazing Elizabeth & May.

They proudly bake all their cakes in their Montville kitchen from scratch, using tried and true recipes and sourcing as many local ingredients as possible to ensure  our creations are as delicious as they are beautiful. 

They recently were awarded the winner of best wedding cakes on the Sunshine Coast in the Bride's Choice Awards for their bespoke cake designs, macaron tower options and elegant cupcake presentations.

Libby and Gen are my special guests in today's blog post.

What’s trends do you see for 2018?
We are seeing a return to more traditional icing style cakes, marble and fresh flowers is very popular at the moment. Semi naked cakes are also still going strong but more and more are going without an icing drip making the cakes more sophisticated.

Where do you get your inspiration from to make such beautiful cakes?
We draw a lot of our inspiration from a bridal couples special day ie. invitations, dresses, flowers, colours, theme or even the venue. We are quite often given photos of cakes but we like to customise and change things to truly create something individual for a couples special day.

What’s your best wedding planning tip you can share with a bridal couple?
Always choose experienced and established providers.
