Derbyshire bakery Luke Evans has designed and created its biggest wedding cake so far this year… for managing director David Yates and operations director Helen Waterfall.

The couple chose a five-tier cake as the centrepiece of their wedding reception after tying the knot at Shirland Church, near Alfreton.

The fruit cakes were decorated with a completely different intricate design on each tier by the team at Luke Evans Bakery, in Riddings, which has been baking bread and cakes for more than 200 years.

Real avalanche roses in white were placed in between the tiers.

“We were absolutely thrilled by the wedding cake,” said Helen. “Our team did a great job. They’d been feeding the cake brandy for the past four months and it was beautiful.”

The five-tier cake was the largest created by Luke Evans Bakery this year, which makes an average of four wedding cakes a month.

David and Helen, who live in Shirland, had their reception at Morley Hayes Hotel, near Derby, surrounded by family and friends after marrying on August 24th.

Luke Evans Bakery sells direct to the public from its shop in Greenhill Lane, Riddings, and also supplies around 300 trade and wholesale customers across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire, including shops, cafes, schools, delis and Pride Park – the home of Derby County Football Club.

Fully trained craft bakers operate 24 hours a day turning out breads, cakes and savoury products from farmhouse loaves and bread rolls to fresh cream éclairs and iced buns.

The bakery has been providing wedding cakes to happy couples across Derbyshire for decades.
