Treats and Favours
The wedding cake is one of the most important parts of a couples wedding. It provides a centre point for the wedding breakfast and a talking point for the wedding guests when they first see it and after they first taste it! Because it is so important Cakes Etcetera place a great deal of emphasis on helping a couple choose the right cake for the right occasion. Our cakes are all Bespoke, meaning that they are individual to each couple, we never produce the exact same cake twice. We offer to make a cake that is unique in not only looks but in taste. We offer a complimentary consultation to assist in design, this includes a ‘taster’ session. Couples can choose upto 5 flavours to try. Choose various flavours from rich fruit cake, vanilla sponge, chocolate sponge, rich Belgian chocolate cake, carrot cake, strawberry and champagne, white chocolate and raspberry, salted caramel and many more. Our most popular cakes by far are our chocolate cake and our fruit cake. Their unique flavour and texture has become a winning combination for Cakes Etcetera.

What is your most memorable wedding?
A steam punk theme with a pile of books by Jules Verne. The wedding guests arrived in "fancy dress" and they looked amazing. I wished I could have dressed up too - just to deliver the cake!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Personal, friendly, informative, willing, capable.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Staying in business for so long through the recession and keeping up with current trends as well as teaching other people the art of sugarcraft.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Do your research and choose a style before looking at wedding cakes. Then go with your heart.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firstly book your consultation/tasting session. You are allowed to try upto 5 flavours from a list which I can email to you. Any flavours not on the list, just say, we are always willing to try new flavours.
What is your signature cake?
My "Lakeside" cake comprising a single or double tiered cake displayed over multi-tiered mini cakes. However I generally just go with what the couple want. I will do most styles.
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
My mother was an amazing cake decorator (amongst other things) and as a young child I would sit and watch her. However it was not until I left home that the real interest began. I made cakes for my son and daughter first of all and the interest just grew until I finally took the plunge, passed my City and Guilds exams in Confectionery Design with flying colours and then my City and Guilds teachers certificate, Levels 1 and 2. I opened my first shop in 1995 and the rest is history.
What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?
I dont have any free time to enter the Bake-off!! LOL
