Perfect Christmas wedding cake
My husband and I had the crazy idea of displaying a cake designed as a pile of Christmas presents on a sled being pulled by a light up reindeer. No job was too big for Sue, and we even had a mince pie flavour tier. It looked even better than we could ever have dreamed of, and many of our guests didn't even realise it was the cake. They thought it was actually a stack of presents. And not only did the cake look incredible, it was delicious too!! Simply perfection.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding has a special place in my heart. From small to large, simple to intricate, each cake is just as important as another, representing each couples dreams for their wedding day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

classic, elegant, timeless, quality, outstanding

What about your business are you most proud of?

All the amazing feedback I get from my very happy couples - that's what makes this business so special.

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

Spend a little time before you come to your consultation getting a feel for what styles of cake you like and don't worry about what anyone else thinks or likes - your cake is all about you!

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

Surprise extra's on the cake like little models around the back of special people, pets or hobbies.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After initial contact either via email or wedding fairs, couples are invited to my home for a relaxed chat and cake tasting consultation to discuss their cake ideas. They get to view my portfolio, display cakes and taste loads of samples, whilst I start to draw up their designs. After the consultation, I produce a full schedule for their cake and formally draw their design(s) up and then email these to them for consideration. Booking is via a £100 deposit, which secures the date in the diary. We chat over the following months as elements of the cake are finalised/amended where necessary (such as flowers, lace designs, toppers) and then 6 weeks before the wedding everything is approved and final payment is made. The week of the wedding I liaise with the couple to confirm delivery arrangements that I have made with the venue and the cakes are then delivered and set up on the day of the wedding.
