What We Do
Wedding cake projection mapping is a fantastic way to make your wedding stand out from the crowd. Whether you’re looking for something with a bit of sparkle for your fairytale wedding or searching for a wedding cake that’s unusual and unique, our projection mapped cakes are unforgettable showpieces that will get your guests talking. Our cakes are:
Made up of combinations of real and dummy cake tiers to match your requirements;
Personalised with names, photos, custom messages or fully bespoke animations.
Many of our clients have been inspired by Disney’s version of the cake offered as part of their Fairytale Wedding package or they’ve seen examples of projection cakes featuring games like Donkey Kong or Pac-Man. The technique is so versatile – if you can dream it, we can make it.
We provide our unique service for weddings in Essex, Suffolk, London and across the UK.
How It Works
Luma Bakery offers something to suit every theme and budget. You can browse our pre-existing library of animated content and make selections to feature on your wedding cake. Or you can have unique, personalised elements created, incorporating:
Your name and wedding date;
Photo or video montages;
Custom messages from guests;
Totally bespoke animations.
Your selections are then projected in a loop until the cake is cut and taken away or the cake can remain in place to be enjoyed throughout the evening. A dedicated technician from Luma Bakery will be on hand throughout to monitor the cake and ensure everything runs smoothly.
We pride ourselves on our unique, proprietary cake mapping set-up. Our equipment doesn’t require large trusses or projector rigs that draw attention to themselves. We use custom, freestanding furniture that discretely houses the projectors, blending seamlessly into your decor. Table dressing can be provided as part of the service or left up to you.
We can project at most types of venue. However, the less competing ambient light there is the better. For this reason, white marquees and orangeries tend not to be appropriate.
Typically we project on to two sides of a square-based, five-tier cake covered with white fondant icing. We believe this is the optimum size and shape to showcase the projected cake display.
Luma Bakery enjoys a successful working relationship with Gully’s Patisserie, headed up by Le Cordon Bleu London-trained patisserie chef and cake designer Gulgun Chakartash. We have a wealth of experience creating projection cakes together and can offer world-class baking cost-effectively as part of our service.
Customers can choose combinations of real and dummy tiers to suit the number of guests. A top tier of real cake comes as standard which feeds 60-80 people. This can be supplemented either with additional real tiers or “cutting cake” served from behind the scenes. All this in your choice of favour. Best-sellers include vanilla, lemon, caramel, chocolate, chocolate orange and red velvet.
Depending on how many real tiers of cake are required, we provide additional dummy tiers to make up our standard five. We also offer a full-dummy option as a cost-effective alternative.
If you want us to provide cake mapping on a custom cake, please get in touch to discuss how we can make your dream cake a reality.
