Full Description
Hi, I'm Claire and I own Caked, a bespoke wedding and celebration cake business based in North Dorset. I design elegant and contemporary wedding cakes to compliment your flowers, colour themes, even your dress for your wedding day. Whether covered in fondant for a traditional and elegant design, or buttercream for a more rustic look, I will design a stunning cake to compliment your wedding day beautifully. Specialising in sugar flowers, your wedding flowers can be recreated in sugar, which can be kept for years as a keepsake. Many types of fresh flowers can also be used as decoration, as well as fresh fruit and many other decorations (seriously, anything! I've used toy safari animals, Hello Kitty figures and even a sugar dragon!). It's not all about the design - the taste of the cake is as important. My signature flavours include Lemon & Lavender, Red Velvet, and White Chocolate & Raspberry, but if there are any particular flavours you're after, I can create them for you. I trained as a pastry chef at the famous Le Cordon Bleu, so you can rest assured your cake will taste absolutely delicious! I also offer delicious favours for your guests, including pretty iced biscuits, macarons or truffles. Dessert tables alongside your cake are also very popular. I deliver throughout the South and South West, and further afield if needed (cakes travel surprisingly well once you know how!). During a friendly and relaxed cake consultation at my studio just outside of Shaftesbury, Dorset, we can discuss your preferences and more importantly taste some delicious cakes with a cup of tea. Get in touch to start planning your dream wedding cake!

Amazing cake!
Claire was wonderful from start to finish. Our tasting was great - apart from the difficulty of choosing from all her amazing flavours. On the day, everything was beautifully set up with the florist decorations and we couldn't have hoped for a more delish cake. I highly recommend Caked for your big day!

The best I could ever imagined
Claire was wonderful from start to finish with our request. The cake Claire made was simply amazing and exceeded our expectations. It looked amazing but the best was yet to come. The inside of the cake was superb, delicious. I would truly recommend Claire and her superb cake business to any wedding or occasion that requires a super special touch.

Amazing and delicious
Claire totally got our aesthetic, and created a confection that was as delicious as it was beautiful. She is super easy to work with - I can't recommend her enough!

She understood our vision!
Claire did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding cake!! She was on the same page as us from the very beginning and understood our vision and even added to it! Not only when it came to decoration, but also with flavours. We wanted an autumn element to our top tier and she amazed us with three gorgeous flavours, and blew the guests away with the spiced apple which we eventually picked. We only wish we'd picked that for a larger tier now!! Absolutely amazing job and would never hesitate to recommend her or order from her again. Thanks Claire! ❤❤

The most perfect cake!
Thank you so much Claire for the wonderful cake and favours you made for our wedding. I loved designing the cake with you and you translated all my Pinterest pins into the most perfect cake! I wish there had been more leftovers to bring home! Thanks again x

What is your most memorable wedding?

Start early!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, contemporary, romantic, bespoke, timeless

What about your business are you most proud of?

A 7 tier showstopper featuring the couple's travels all over the world - each tier was a different country.

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

We'll set up a consultation, where you can come and taste some of our signature cake flavours and discuss design ideas. If you have any ideas beforehand, send these over so that we can collect together some ideas to discuss together. Sharing Pinterest boards are also a great way to show what kind of cake you're looking for, and if you have any dress swatches, photos or invitations you can share, these are also a great source of design inspiration. After the consultation, I'll draw up some designs and send them over to you. We can go back and forth until you are completely happy with the design. At this point, I'll ask for a deposit to secure the booking. In the run up to your wedding, I'm happy to liaise with your venue, catering company or florist to ensure everything runs like clockwork on the day. And of course I'll be working tirelessly to make sure you have the most beautiful cake for your special day.

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

It all started with a love of home baking, and quickly escalated after completing the Foundation Sugarcraft Skills course at Squires Kitchen in Farnham. From there, I started making all sorts of cakes and wedding cakes for friends and family, and more and more people were asking me to make cakes, so I started charging for my services. Finally in 2015 I quit my job in media to train at Le Cordon Bleu in London. I graduated in early 2016 as a fully qualified pastry chef, and opened Caked.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My first one back in 2014! A terrifying experience but I felt so proud seeing the finished cake all set up.

What is your signature cake?

I have so many favourite flavours, but my Red Velvet is the absolute best-seller. My Spiced Apple & Chai is also a favourite with autumn weddings.

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

Individual lego place settings relevant to each guest - so adorable and lovely keepsakes for guests.

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Knowing that a couple are over the moon with their wedding cake is one of the best feelings in the world.
