Pink Fairytale wedding Cake

here's an ivory and pink version of the very popular Fairytale wedding cake. All the edges of the details are softly dusted with a light pink edible dust which gives a really delicate feel to this cake.

A cute Peter Rabbit birthday cake

I so enjoyed making all the tiny vegetables for this cake!

Branching Out
For those of you who only know us as Peggy's Cupcakes, we have added a new arm to the business, Rosalind Miller Cakes, to showcase our wedding cakes.

Please take a look at the website if you haven't already done so.

Don't worry, we are still continuing with the cupcakes. Keep checking the website for new collections.

Press Interest
Our wedding cakes are getting a lot of attention from the wedding magazines!
See some of our highlights below...

Conde Nast Brides - June 2011

Conde Nast Brides - April 2011

Wedding Magazine -  June/July 2011

We were featured on"The Great Cake Bake" on Wedding TV in February. Three top cake designers battle it out to win the hearts of a couple by creating an extravagant unique cake especially for their Pagan Ceremony.
Guess who they chose!


Our Cupcake Baking and Decorating classes are still very popular and you can find the latest dates here.

In response to many many requests, we are introducing a 2 day Wedding Cake Course and a 1 day Exquisite Sugar Flowers Class.

During this course you will learn how to immaculately cover, stack and decorate a 2 tier wedding cake. You will be taught how to make a wide range of decorations including exquisite sugar roses, peonies, filler flowers, and a wired floral arrangement. At the end of your course you will have mastered the art of creating the perfect wedding cake.

...and, as always, whether you want to make cakes as a hobby, for a wedding, or to start your own business, Rosalind is happy to answer any questions you can throw at here.

Here are some beautiful images of my cakes, shot by Fanni of Fubumedia taken at a bridal shoot recently.

Best wishes from Rosalind and all at Rosalind Miller Cakes and Peggy's Cupcakes.

Fresh as a daisy wedding cake

A lovely fresh daisy and lace wedding cake, ideal for a summer wedding.

Teaching in Qatar

I have just returned from Qatar, where I was asked to help set up a cupcake business and train the workers. I stayed in a gorgeous luxury hotel, and had a fun time trying out different recipes with local ingredients, and training the bakers to make sugar flowers and various decoration techniques.

And some rabbits and chicks in the souk. (I'm not condoning this by the way, I think it's very wrong to do this to the animals, but I thought you may like to see.)

85th birthday cupcakes

Wedding Shows

We recently took part in the Designer Wedding Show at Battersea, and The National Wedding Show at Olympia. Both went really well, we had loads of enquiries and made loads of useful contacts. I'm still working through all the enquiries we had, so I expect to inundated with brides coming for consultations and cake tastings over the next few weeks.

Wedding shows

I'm exhibiting at both The Designer Wedding Show at at Battersea Park on February 11 -13, and The National Wedding Show at Olympia on February 19 -21. I've been preparing madly for both shows, and there's so much to do, buying furniture, sorting out print materials, let alone finishing off the cakes I'll be showing.

I've also seen some lovely couples recently who want to order cakes for their wedding. I'm really excited, there are some really lovely designs, and I'll post pictures when they're finished.

Check out these blogs who have all written some fabulous features about us.

Beads and frills wedding cake


Hi, I'm Rosalind and here's a bit about me and my wedding cake company. www.rosalindmillercakes.com

We're based in London and will be "officially" launching at the National Wedding Show at London Olympia on 18-20 February 2011. And by the way all wedding cakes ordered at The National Wedding show are eligible for a 10% discount. Contact me if you'd like a ticket, but be quick as I only have a limited number.

I also run Peggy's Cupcakes where we make delicious exquisite couture cupcakes, which have been described as “edible works of art"!

My previous incarnations have been as an artist, graphic designer, and Senior Lecturer at Central St Martins College of Art.

I have recently finished filming for Wedding TV’s “The Great Cake Bake” which is due to air in February 2011. This was a pretty nerve wracking experience, never having been filmed before. Perhaps I'd better not say too much until the programme has been on. I'll let you know when.

My kitchen is huge since I decided last year to extend it and have a dedicated
area for baking rather than rent a commercial kitchen. I love working from home
and not having to commute. I'm usually working along to cheesy 60's pop songs,
or radio 4, though I can never work out whats happening in the afternoon play as
I'm concentrating so much on the cake! It always looks like chaos when I'm in
the midst of baking or decorating, but as I also run baking and decorating
classes there I do have to keep it in some sort of order!

Unfortunately being a cake decorator isn't good for the figure, and my new years
resolution is to make cake pops from the leftover cake rather than scoffing it.
(Though you always have to try some, just for quality control you understand!).

Most of my customers contact me by email before coming for a consultation. The
prospective bride and groom can taste different flavours of cake; a few of which
are Madagscan Vanilla sponge, Banana, Carrot Walnut and Ginger, Raspberry,
Double Chocolate, Lemon, Elderflower, Lavender and Rose, Red Velvet. We discuss
their preferences for flavours, and whether they want different flavours for
each tier of the cake. We will talk about their own design ideas, themes and
colours for their wedding, and together come up with a cake design they're happy
with, either based on one of my previous cakes adapted in some way, or a
completely bespoke design.

My design ideas may come from some of my previous design work or paintings, as in the Ivory Rose cake, (my most popular design), which was based on one of my paintings. Inspiration is drawn from anywhere and everywhere; interiors, fashion, nature, textiles, a piece of vintage lace or jewellery, or designs on vintage tea sets.

I'll be posting lots of pics of new cakes here, so keep looking. x
