You’ve got the perfect partner, found the perfect outfit, booked the perfect venue… but there’s still one very important element to think about when it comes to planning your perfect Ibiza wedding – cake! After the first kiss and the first dance, the cutting of the cake (and obligatory feeding of your new spouse) is one of the key moments of the event, so ensuring it sticks in your guests’ memories, and on their tastebuds, is important.
Enter Mitch the Cake Lady. As her name suggests, she is a creator of cakes – but these aren’t just your average or traditional Ibiza wedding cakes (although of course she can make these too). The bigger, the better. The more spectacular, the more special. The more challenging, the more rewarding. The more off-the-wall, the more amazing. “I can do anything with cake,” says our beloved baker with a knowing grin, and the more you get to know Mitch, the more you know she is right!
The idea is that you can design your dream cake, and Mitch then deconstructs the idea, plots out the puzzle and works out the practicalities – even if they are gravity defying – to make the dream a reality. While some people have a distinct idea before meeting with Mitch, it’s totally OK if you’re not sure what you want – after a detailed chat that helps her to understand what makes you tick, the ideas start flowing thicker and faster than a delicious fondant topping!
A firm believer that her clients should be able to have their cake and eat it too, Mitch aims to make 100% of each cake edible (where possible) – whether it is the crystal beads on a cake, the delicate eyelashes on the figurines on top of the cake (not to mention the figurines themselves – made from sugar paste which Mitch can customise to suit each couple), edible flowers and so much more. And while the outside of the cake obviously has the ‘wow factor’, the inside of the cake can be more subtly impressive – think rainbow colours, animal print patterns and absolutely any flavour combination that tickles your fancy.
When asked what her ultimate cake challenges would be (just to get some ideas into your head), Mitch listed a chandelier cake (completely upside down layer cake with the smallest layer at the bottom, hanging from a hook), a gravity defying cake (think topsy turvy layers that manage to stay in place despite precarious placement), inside picture cakes (be it an image, shape or print such as sunset, rainbows, animal print or more) and a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party cake (just let your imagination run wild on that one).
Think you can beat that? Got something wacky and wonderful in mind for your Ibiza wedding cake? Better get Mitch the Cake Lady on your speed dial then!
