What is your most memorable wedding?
Stuart and Laura’s wedding September 2016, it was my first wedding cake as a business and it was for some of my best friends. It was a beautiful day and their wedding was featured in Rock My Wedding, which meant my cake, favours and painted signs were all included too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The fact I’m able to do it and raise a family
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Just be organised at the start- book the “big” things first i.e. venue, church/registry office, catering. Then just enjoy doing the bits you don’t necessarily need to get married but are just nice extras! I.e favours, decorations
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My cousin’s now wife is a scientist (phd no less!) and for her centre pieces she used retort stands that held the different shaped glass bottles (like what you would see in a science lab) which contained flowers and foliage. Really unique and really effective!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I receive an initial enquiry, usually with a vague idea of design asking for a price, eg how much would it be for a 3 tiered cake?
I then ask for more details so I can give a rough price range - how many to feed so we know what size cakes, are they iced or naked, any fruit cake?
After this, I can give a range such as £150-£500 depending on level of design/detail.
If they’re happy with this range, or know which end of it they’d like to be at, I can then start working on design details with them, usually using photos from Pinterest or my own cakes to select features they would like.
If they want to meet up for a chat happy to do so but most couples are happy with messaging.
Once a final design and price are reached, we book in and a deposit is agreed to be paid on a certain date.
