What We Do
Whether you want to dazzle friends and family or wow prospective clients and generate buzz, projection mapped cakes by Luma Bakery offer a spectacular focal point to your event. If you are an individual planning a celebration like a birthday party, christening, anniversary or bar/bat mitzvah, we can help make it special and memorable. If you are a business hosting a gala, product launch or corporate event, we’d love to work with you to create something unique and attention-grabbing. Our cakes are:
Made up of combinations of real and dummy cake tiers to meet your requirements;
Customised with names, photos, custom messages, logos/branding or fully bespoke animations.
Luma Bakery has provided cake mapping services for everything from surprise 50th birthday parties to Game of Thrones premiere parties. If your event needs something eye-catching to get guests talking for days afterwards, get in touch.
We provide our unique projection mapping service for celebrations in Essex, Suffolk, London and across the UK.
How It Works
We have a large library of pre-existing animated content that you can select from. Alternatively, experienced animators can create custom content tailored to you. We can include:
Photos & videos;
Logos & branding;
Your selections are played in a loop until the cake is cut or left for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. A technician from Luma Bakery will be on hand throughout to supervise the cake and ensure smooth running.
Luma Bakery is unique in its proprietary set-up that doesn’t involve obtrusive trusses or projector rigs. Our projectors are discretely housed within custom-made furniture that we can dress to camouflage with the decor of the event.
While our robust set-up is suitable for most venues, the projections are at their best when there is as little competing ambient light as possible. Therefore white marquees and orangeries tend to be unsuitable.
We’ve developed a great working partnership with Le Cordon Bleu London-trained patisserie chef and cake designer Gulgun Chakartash of Gully’s Patisserie. Consequently, we can incorporate world class baking cost-effectively as part of our service.
We tend to work with five square-based tiers covered in white icing. Customers can choose combinations of real cake tiers and dummy tiers to match their requirements. Supplementary “cutting cake” can also be provided which gets served from behind the scenes. Popular flavours include vanilla, lemon, caramel, chocolate, chocolate orange and red velvet.
We also offer a full-dummy option if cutting the cake in front of guests is not important to you or your budget is tight.
We can also perform cake mapping on custom cakes. If you want to use something other than our standard square-based cake, get in touch to discuss your project.
