Full Description
‘Pasticceria’ is Italian for Patisserie and ‘Lorena’, well thats me! I am an Italian pastry chef with an inherent love of food, (particularly the sweet type) family, fun and I am a bit partial to a good glass of prosecco. My skills come from knowledge passed down through generations of my family, my love of recipe books and of course lots of practice. As a result I make authentic Italian cakes and pastries using the finest Italian ingredients, everything is made by hand from home as you can’t beat that artisan touch. My little Nottingham-based biz was born in 2014 when I swapped my performing arts career for my love of baking, and now I find great pleasure in helping couples think outside the box when it comes to their wedding cake. My clients are definitely foodies who don’t like icing and dare to say “arrivederci” to the traditional tiered wedding cake. Most of my work consists of a show stopping feature cake that is complimented by a selection of mouthwatering mini pastries, but my services do not stop at baking, working closely with a wedding stylist, I design and set up the complete bespoke display to suit the theme, style and colour scheme of your venue and day. My most popular cake is my traditional Italian wedding cake, layers of the lightest sponge soaked with a liqueur of choice and layered with lashings of pastry cream. These gateaux style cakes are decorated with creams, meringues, fresh, fruits, chocolate, flowers and pastries. For 2019 I have designed a new monogram version of this cake offering a personalised cake landscape. I love to be challenged so if you have an idea you want brought to life, just ask and lastly my mini pastries also make a great alternative to savoury canapés at your drinks reception.

As a baker, Lorena is exceptional!
Unlucky for us we found Lorena’s page on Instagram with only 3 months left to go before our big day. However, after sending an ambitious enquiry email with little hope of success, Lorena came back to us promptly and went above and beyond to accommodate our vision despite the short notice, and our less than ideal location of our wedding. Having an Italian themed day, especially when it can to the catering, Lorena’s creations seemed the perfect choice for us. From our private consultation, it was apparent that not only were we in capable hands from her exquisite baking ability, but also from her attention to detail in ensuring the dessert display was exactly what we had in mind, and would fit in with the venue, and theme of the day perfectly. The delivery, and set up of our dessert table happened seamlessly on the day, and we can say with confidence that it was one of the highlights of the day for all of our guests, and ourselves included. Our display included 259 individual miniature pastries, along with a 12 inch wedding cake. All of which were completed to the same outstanding standard as the individual ones we had such good memories of back from our original consultation. As we reminisce about our big day, the cake and desserts are always brought up by our friends and family. As a baker, Lorena is exceptional, however what she adds further to that in professionalism, and attention to detail is what makes her service overall impeccable without fault.

Was worth every penny!!!
Lorena provided us with delicious pastries and a fabulous cake for our wedding. The guests raved about them and they were all eaten. One of my favourite memories was stood eating the remaining cake at the end of the evening with my hands. Delicious! Would definitely order again, the service, communication and cake was worth every penny! Thank you, Lorena! :)

Not only an incredible baker but a true artist!
We had the MOST delicious display of stunning small cakes and a beautiful centre piece for our wedding on September 2nd. Lorena took SO much time and effort into making our dessert table just perfect for us. She is not only an incredible baker but a true artist! Everybody commented not only on the taste but how beautiful everything looked. Lorena went out of her way for us, paying attention to every little detail (which I didn't have the time for myself!!). THANK YOU SO MUCH !!! A diamond little business xx

What is your most memorable wedding?

My own of course! Oh sorry you mean, the ones I have worked on. I think it would be the first one I did a dessert table at for a bride whose family originate from the same village in Italy as my mum. She was so excited to have found a taste of Italy in the U.K. and the comments I got that day are what fuelled my determination to build my business.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unconventional, unique, modern, striking and mouthwatering

What about your business are you most proud of?

For me it’s all about bringing joy to people with what I create, I am most proud of the reactions, compliments and amazing reviews I get from my clients as that’s what makes the hard work worthwhile.

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

Do it your way! Many people will give you advice about what you should have, what you should wear, what you need to do, what traditions you should follow, but it’s your day, so I say do it your way and make it personal to you.

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

A bride who had made a floor runner to go down the aisle with a personal message hand painted on it. It was a message to her mum who was walking her down the aisle in the absence of her late father.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

It’s begins with a chat over the phone or email to establish, like, dislikes and a bit about the vision for the wedding. I then invite you to a consultation and tasting at my home, this is very relaxed over a coffee and you get to sample some pastries and discuss the finer details of your dream dessert table. After this I put together a full proposal and quote and you secure the booking by paying a deposit. About 3 months before the wedding I liase with you and the venue to finalise the intricate details and timings of the day. Full payment is made 1 month before the wedding and the week of the wedding the magic happens and you can enjoy your day, all you have to worry about is how you are going to stop yourself from eating all the cake!

What is your signature cake?

Italian wedding cake - a light sponge, drizzled with a vanilla liqueur and layered with vanilla pastry cream. Topped with Chantilly cream, meringues fresh fruits and chocolate

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

A cascading millefoglie (meaning a thousand layers) Italian wedding cake with an array of mini desserts displayed on an old farm cart turned bar with draped foliage and rustic backdrop. The guests commented on how different it was having pastry instead of cake, it was light and fresh, perfect for a summer wedding!

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Baking is in my blood! being Italian I was brought up around great food and watching my family cook and bake using traditional methods. However I wasn't always a baker, I used to be a dancer and dance teacher! when my body told me it was time to stop dancing, I turned back to my heritage and started to spend more time in the kitchen experimenting. I began making cakes for my children and family birthdays and people began asking me to bake for their celebrations and so what was at first a hobby became a second career, however I knew I wanted to bring something different to the table and so combined my love of baking with my heritage to bring people an authentic taste of Italian patisserie. after a few years of establishing my business, I created a wedding dessert table for a lovely couple, the bride was Italian and wanted to bring some of her heritage to her wedding day, and it was this wedding that shaped the direction of my business. I absolutely loved the entire process from start to finish and I find it such a privilege to be entrusted to create cakes for couples special day.
