Cannot recommend highly enough
After Emma did such a wonderful job of making our wedding cake we asked her to make our son's christening cake too. I sent her a picture of a cake I really liked and what Emma produced was even better!! Everyone commented on how amazing it looked and how delicious it tasted. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Emma x

we made £115
Whilst planning a charity bake sale to raise money for nephrotic syndrome trust (NeST). I contacted Emma along with many local companies, to ask for donations. Emma responded quickly to say she would happily donate. Great communication on the lead up to the bake sale and as promised Emma donated. On collection of the donation I was totally amazed to see a full beautifully decorated passion cake. This was the talk of the table and was easily cut up into many servings. Everyone who tried it commented on its delicious taste and I even had to buy myself a slice to see what all the fuss was about and I had to agree it was soo yummy, fruity, moist and just amazing! We made £115 at the bakesale so a massive thank you for the very kind donation!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I spent every Christmas as a child in Otterburn so when I was asked to create a cake for Woodhill Hall I was very excited to return to this lovely Northumberland village. Woodhill Hall is a beautiful venue, they were holding a wedding open morning while I was setting up the cake so I got to look around the beautiful rooms and the teepee in the Garden. I loved the vintage cake the bride and myself designed together, a soft buttercream colour with an antique tea cup and saucer as a topper, I picked the colours in the cup to use in the beads and for the ribbons and for the handmade flowers that filled the cup. The cake was set up in the entrance hall at the foot of the staircase and it looked amazing!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classical, contemporary, detailed, vintage, stunning.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that most of my business comes from recommendations.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Choose a cake that's compatible with the style of the venue, the season, your gown, the flower arrangements, or the menu. If you want colourful accents (such as sugar flowers or icing ribbons), give your baker fabric swatches.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Confetti cones made from the music score from the first dance.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After an initial phonecall or email conversation, I have the pleasure of meeting the couple, discussing their wedding plans, style of wedding, venue, colour scheme etc. I discuss options regarding their cake, size, design, colour and then to the nitty gritty of the big day and ensuring that I have a clear plan for the set up and display of the cake.
