An Enchanted Unveiling: Yevnig Davis Launches Her Latest Cake Collection

Yevnig Davis

From the whimsical magic of fairies, the beauty of trailing fresh florals to the majestic inspiration drawn from Roman Greek architecture, Yevnig presents six brand new cakes for her 2019/2020 collection.  Every single petal, cherub and royal iced detail has been completely hand-crafted from scratch.  As with every cake Yevnig creates, artistry and grandeur with a contemporary twist is at the heart of each unique design.

Yevnig Says:

“I have always been enamoured by the beauty of nature and the charm of fairies, combined with a love for material textures and architecture. The Enchanted Unveiling is a very personal collection, sharing the passion and love for my creative platform of sugar artistry. I adore all things pretty and girly, nature orientated, colourful, happy, elegantly floral, and I have designed these cakes with a nod to historic architecture and dress fabrics. This collection was my chance to show my love for creating intricate and show-stopping centrepiece cakes alongside a diversity of creativity to suit each and every bride. 

I will always be inspired by my brides, their choices and their weddings. I always want to give a piece of art crafted with passion for the best day of their lives.”

Elizabeth

Inspired by the rich history of the Elizabethan era, this five-tier design epitomises the grandeur and elegance of 16th Century royal costume. Alongside Queen Elizabeth’s famed frilled collar, jewelled headpiece and crown, detail is drawn from the jewelled embroideries, Elizabethan ruffs, farthingales, pristine lace and pearl embroidery of the period. Hand-crafted sugar flowers adorn the cake, aged in beautiful dusky blushes and olive greens.

Antonia-Sophie

Celebrating the beauty of summertime, this charming floral design is the perfect embodiment of the English country garden. Inspiration is taken from the delicate silky petals of flowers such as lilacs, roses, hydrangeas and deep pink hellebores. The cake is crafted with an abundance of flowing dainty sugar blooms in a pretty pastel colour palette trailing across five tiers.

Chrysa

The translation of Chrysa (from the Greek name Chryso) is ‘golden’. Inspired by the art and literature of the Golden Age of Greece (300-500BC), this six-tier ivory cake wrapped with a golden olive leaf border and swirl-wrapped sugar flower cascade, evokes the wild romance of the era. The orchid and hydrangea florals are hand-crafted in shimmering blush tones.

Penny The Bee

Beauty and Penny The Bee

Penny The Bee

With the latest block buster Beauty and the Beast hitting our screens it was only inevitable that the Disney classic will be celebrated in many forms – one of which is a sensational cake by Cristina, a sugar artist and cake decorator based in North West, London, and the Founder of Penny the Bee!

Penny the BeePenny The Bee

Penny the Bee featured at The National Wedding Show in Olympia, London this year, where one of the themes was inspired by the Beauty and the Beast movie. This became a prominent feature of the show, receiving some excellent feedback and attracting the guests too.   Christina was inspired by other projects too as she had been developing a ‘return to nature’ theme replicating a country wedding in a peaceful and relaxing environment, surrounded by the harmony of nature, the magic of woodlands and the fruits of the forest.  Christina’s imagination captures everyone living their biggest dreams, marrying someone they truly love and creating the roots of their perfect life.

Penny the Bee

Beginning her career as an amateur cook with a passion for illustrations and fairy tale writing, Christina dedicated her time to exploring new ways of cooking, with particular attention to table arrangements and decorations.  Christina obtains her inspiration from the world around her. From an early age, she has always been a good observer, capturing the smallest of details in every moment.  According to Christina, a passion for detail is what makes the difference between good quality and exceptional quality.  Her creativity stems from a wedding dress, a photograph, a sunny day, a child’s book, a garden full of flowers, a colour palette, or just even a precious moment.  She truly loves to add a touch of style and beauty to everything that she envisages, giving originality and uniqueness to her creations – but not forgetting the extravaganza and the hint of fantasy.

Penny the Bee

Impressed by some amazing cakes seen in magazines and in shops, she decided to attend her first cake decorating course in April 2013.  It was love at first sight!  In 2014, willing to improve her skills and wishing to combine the Italian style with the English decorating techniques, she started to attend a selection of cake decorating courses, from sugar paste to modelling, sugar flowers, royal icing, wonky cakes, baking, cupcakes and many more.  Subsequently in 2015, she began her new adventure with Penny the Bee.

Penny the Bee

To recreate her vision, every Penny the Bee cake is customized according to the client’s needs and dreams with exquisitely hand crafted decorations and meticulous attention to detail.  Christina only uses the finest ingredients and every cake is freshly made to order.  Her mission is not just to create a stunning cake – but through her cakes – create memories that will last a lifetime!

Penny the Bee is based in NW London and has been awarded 5 star food hygiene rating. While studying for her LLM Master’s degree, she decided to study also for the PME Professional Diploma, obtaining the PME Masters Certificate from the Knightsbridge PME School of Cake Decorating.  For more details please visit www.pennythebee.com
