In an exclusive showcase of their dynamic range of extravagant cake mastery, four luxury vendors across London hosted GC Couture's tailor-made cakes as part of a styled photoshoot captured by our CEO Peter Rear to present:
Oscar De La Renta
This particular cake was inspired by one of Oscar De Le Renta’s couture wedding dresses. Moved by his nude colour palette and dramatic lines; we designed a complimenting clean, stream-lined cake, accessorised by theatrical pleating. This cake features a full tiered lace design perfect for the opulent bride.
The wedding cake designed for the Sexy Fish restaurant was based on an under-water theme; a grand blue ombre cake designed to suit such an elaborate venue. The GCC team replicated a mermaid tale that had upwards of 18,000 individually placed swarovski crystals.
Our design team, based this cake on the opulent/ contemporary Great Hall in the Lanesborough hotel. We took elements of the eucalyptus green walls and used it as an accent colour for the cake. We replicated the swags and moulding on the columned lamps in the background, imitating Grecian décor. With our own GCC design stamp, we topped the cake with an ornate gold leaf stag head.
This classic, ivory showpiece was based on a traditional tiered column cake dressed with arched doorways and decorative balconies. This cake was designed for the classic bride that likes timeless concepts and regal features.
GC Couture don’t just believe in creating the perfectly designed bespoke wedding cake, they also believe in the whole wedding cake experience.
