Full Description
No wedding is too big or too small, each is a special and as individual as you are and so that is why I strive to make each and every cake as unique, no two cakes are ever the same so you know you are having a truly one off experience. Each cake is designed in house and every part of the process is handled by myself so there’s no confusion or many points of contact and I’m fully involved in the whole process. From feature wedding cakes to favours I can provide a whole range of sweet treats and bakes to coordinate or compliment your cake, theme or wedding style. Whether it be personalised cookies, cake pops or just the cake itself, I’ll guide you smoothly through the process from start to finish. I also offer cake stand hire if your looking for something more unique and bespoke to set your cake off to perfection and make your cake stand out in a crowd.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classic, floral, unique, bold,

What about your business are you most proud of?

Winning both regional and national Cake Designer of the year.

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

When you come to see me bring your mood boards, Pinterest pins, material samples, invites or just about anything you’ve already planned for your wedding, these will help me get a feel for your wedding and often become the basis of your design for your wedding cake. It’s amazing what inspiration can be found from what you’ve already organised.

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

Too many to mention, something heartfelt or personal always goes a long way for me.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

First point of contact is usually through my social media or email. We can then arrange a consultation either in person or via media platforms that suit us both. At which point we discuss designs, themes, or cakes you may have already seen. We discuss numbers, flavours, cake tastings can be arranged for the same time, and those details that are important to you. I then quick sketch a design to make sure I’ve captured the essence of what you want. A further detailed cake proposal is sent should you decide to go ahead after initial consultation including your quote. One a booking fee is paid you are considered booked. 8 weeks before the cake is due final payment is made and we finalise all the details for your booking. The week of the wedding I touch base to check how your doing and also contact the venue to discuss directly delivery arrangements and set up so it’s one less job for you to do. On the day I’ll confirm when the cake has been delivered so that all that’s left for you to do is relax and enjoy your day.

What is your signature cake?

Any thing with a sugar flower on it and I’m hooked!

What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?

all My cakes are bespoke and so original but over the years I’ve had some fun ones too such as the winter wedding cake full of sparkles but with the bride, groom and their dog on a sledge coming down the cake. The time I was asked for an all white affair with an offshore crane “fishing” for his other half who was sat lower down the cake. The couple met on a dating app called go fishing, she was a paramedic doc and he was a crane driver and they wanted this reflected in the cake. I don’t tend to make these styles often as I like to feature on the flowers and no longer model figures but they were certainly fun, interesting, though some times a little tricky, cakes to make!

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

I had been making birthday and occasion cakes for just over a year when my best friend as me to make her wedding cake for her. I was honoured she trusted me enough to make this happen for her. It was an absolute joy to make and I loved it, though being bridesmaid and cake maker did have its problems the cake did not and after that I was hooked.

What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?

I’m all about the tiers and live by the motto go big or go home so it’s would have to be something super tall and I love colour so it would have to have lots of colour and a ton of sugar flowers on it!
