Absolute dream to work with
Nadia was an absolutely dream to work with from start to finish and the communication is everything you could hope for. The cake tasting experience was amazing and we found it really difficult to pick which flavours we wanted as all the options were so delicious! You could tell from just meeting her how passionate she is about what she does & her creativity was really helpful. On our wedding day I was so blown away when I saw and tasted our cake! Her sugar flowers are incredible! Thank you so much for making our beautiful wedding cake.

Nadia's flavour combinations are astounding!
I cant explain how amazing Nadia's cakes are. They are beyond perfect, the time and effort she puts in to every single detail is amazing. Its not even just the look, since the wedding we have had so many comments on how amazing it tasted and the flavour combinations she comes up with are just astounding. I have done and will continue to recommend her for every cake event that I and my family members have.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Mr and Mrs England's Wedding. As Helen ( the bride) would be becoming 'Mrs England' the whole wedding had a very British theme, and of course the cake was central to this. So I created a wedding cake that had a hand crafted Taxi, with a swinging 'just married' sign. I added a post box with their initials, and English bull dog, and then hand piped famous London land marks on the cake. Of course it was adorned with rolled red roses. It is not often that when I deliver and set up the cake I will see the bride, but Helen came running in and gave me the biggest hug, she was ecstatic with the cake, along with her mum and sister in law. That was such a memorable day, to see my client light up, and know that we had just 'got it'.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Striking, feminine, romantic, whimsical, unique

What about your business are you most proud of?

Every cake has been executed with its own sense of style. No one cake that comes out of the kitchen has ever been the same. They have all been unique to every client, and every cake I have taken on has forced me to push myself and do everything to deliver above and beyond my clients expectations.

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

Don't be afraid to show off your own sense of style. The day should reflect the personality of the couple. This is the first major planning role the couple will ever take, and they really have to work together as a team. Have fun with it, and throw in touches that tell your story.

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

Pots of home made jam and spirits as wedding favours, created by the brides family.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Every couple is invited to taste a sample of our most popular cake sponges and fillings. I always suggest couples bring photos, mood boards or colour swatches that they are drawn to, to help get an idea of their style, and the kind of cake design they are looking for. I will draw up various design, tweaking these with the couple, until we come to a final creation that they love. From there, we discuss the payment plan, and I will answer any other questions that they have.
