Projection Cake Mapping by Luma Bakery
Luma Bakery brings together digital technology and world-class baking to create unforgettable projection mapped cakes and cake mapping services for weddings, celebrations and corporate events in Suffolk, Essex, London and across the UK. Our cakes are:
Made up of combinations of real and dummy tiers of cake to suit your needs;
Personalised with names, photos, custom messages, logos or fully bespoke animations.
Typically we project on to two sides of a square-based, multi-tiered cake covered with white fondant icing. What’s underneath is up to you. We work with a world-class patisserie chef and cake designer who can provide as much cake as you need in your choice of flavour.

What Is Projection Mapping?
Projection mapping, also known as video mapping, is a technique used increasingly in events, theatre and artistic installations. Rather than projecting an image indiscriminately on to a surface, software is used to ‘map’ the image on to an object. In this way, any object can be transformed into a display surface.
Projecting on to cakes, or what’s come to be known as “cake mapping”, is a newer innovation started by Disney in 2014 as part of their Fairytale Wedding package. Since then the trend has been growing, spearheaded by Luma Bakery in the UK when we launched in 2015. Since then, everything from Game of Thrones to Pac-Man has been projected on to cakes demonstrating the versatility of this exciting new medium.
We are passionate about creating projection mapped cakes that suit the character and tone of your event.
We offer a range of fully personalised options as well as a library of pre-made content from which clients can select their favourites. We also love to work with clients on entirely bespoke projects.
Luma Bakery enjoys a successful working relationship with Gully’s Patisserie, headed up by world-class patisserie chef and cake designer Gulgun Chakartash.
Clients are able to choose real/dummy cake combinations that are sympathetic to their budget without sacrificing the impact of the projection display.
Our discrete projector set-up has been developed specifically to be suitable for almost any venue and blend seamlessly with your decor.
As a standard part of our service, clients benefit from a dedicated on-hand technician to monitor the cake throughout the event.
The 'Luma' Factor
Luma Bakery was started in 2015 and has since then built up a wealth of experience creating show-stopping projection cakes. Of the few providers in the UK we are the only specialists in cake projection mapping. We really know what we’re doing.
Coming from a background in animation and projection for film and theatre, the artist behind our animations knows how to tell a story and create a sense of spectacle. This artistic flair shines through everything we do.
Our set-up doesn’t involve large trusses or projector rigs. Our custom, proprietary furniture was designed to be discrete and to camouflage perfectly within an event. We are able to dress the table as part of our service if required.
