Full Description
Think relaxed and free-flowing designs embellished with delicate florals and touches of detail and texture to bring your style and personalities to life. My creations are truly bespoke, expertly hand-crafted and designed to be an integral centre-piece of your wedding day. Whatever you have in mind, Cherry Tree Cakerie can help develop your ideas and will work closely with you to create something perfect for you and your special day. I work from my kitchen, which is based in Finmere, Buckinghamshire and I also deliver to the neighbouring counties of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire as well as London. The process starts with an initial consultation to discuss your ideas. Bring along as much inspiration as you can to get the creative juices flowing! Whilst we talk though your requirements, you can taste a sample of four pre-selected flavour combinations over a cup of tea. Following your consultation I will produce an initial design and quotation. The design can be tweaked until we create the perfect cake that's uniquely right for you. Should you wish to proceed, a deposit will secure your booking and you can rest in the knowledge that your cake and all the necessary arrangements are in capable hands.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Charlene Russell
Firstly, congratulations on your impending wedding! Now, call me biased but I reckon the best part of the wedding planning process is the cake. You get to unleash your creativity AND eat cake, it's a win-win. So, if you're looking for a beautiful, creative design or you love the contemporary art-inspired look, then I could help you create your vision. I believe your wedding cake should be as beautiful and unique as you are.

Charlene is accommodating, friendly and brilliant
Being that my husband and I aren’t really a fan of cake we needed to find somebody to make us a cookie cake instead. For this Charlene was perfect! We absolutely loved the cake and the little cookies she made to go with it: 4 different types of cookies presented in little baskets. These were a real hit with our wedding guests. Charlene is accommodating, friendly and brilliant at what she does. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

You are such an artist!
Thank you very much for the incredibly beautiful and delicious cake! The whole family took the unfinished cake home on the day and we had them all for breakfast for the following days! You are such an artist!!

It was exactly how we imagined
We wanted to say a huge thank you for our beautiful and delicious wedding cake. It was exactly how I imagined it would be and you captured what we wanted; with both looks and flavour, so perfectly! All of our guests loved it as well and it went down a treat (even after copious amounts of canapés and a 3 course meals!) I still can't get over how light you were able to make both the buttercream and the sponge. We loved it so much we even got The Langham to pack up some of it for us to take with us on our honeymoon!

Charlene is awesome!
Charlene is awesome! So creative and talented she listened to our vision and helped realised them for our wedding cake. We had so many compliments about the taste as well as the look! I just wish she was nearer so she was more accessible for more of our life events to celebrate. Thanks again Charlene xxx

You designed a cake that felt completely personal
Zoe & I wanted to say a big thank you for doing our wedding cake, from our initial meeting through to delivery you were professional and approachable and designed a cake that felt completely personal to us. The cake looked so good and tasted amazing too, unfortunately I only got to try two of the three flavours as it all got gobbled up by our guests. We would definitely recommend your services to everyone. Thanks again for all your hard work.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

It has to be a New Year's Eve wedding. I arrived to set up the cake just as the couple and their guests moved into the dining room to be seated for the wedding breakfast and the atmosphere was absolutely alive. You could feel the joy and energy in the room, it was magical!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, whimsical, nature-inspired, contemporary and artistic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Building a business from scratch, doing what I love and finding my own style. It's a privilege to be able to unleash your creativity and design something unique for each and every couple and I never tire of talking about cake!

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

Try not to lose sight of what the day is about (YOU) and try to enjoy the wedding planning process!

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

It was actually at a family wedding. The couple gifted a beautiful flower posy to those guests who had recently lost a loved one in their memory. It was a sensitive and thoughtful touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I always suggest a consultation so that we can discuss your requirements and design ideas, and of course taste some cake. It's a great way for me to get to know a couple and vice versa, and I can really get a good feel for what you envisage for your wedding cake. I can then draw up a design based on our discussion and provide a quotation. Consultations are charged at £30, which is deducted from the cost of your cake should you proceed with an order.

What is your signature cake?

It has to be my Secret Garden cake. I designed and created it for a styled wedding shoot and it proved to be such a popular design that I will be making three variations of it, each one unique to each couple, for weddings this year.

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

It will have to be my Secret Garden cake again. It's a free-flowing, nature-inspired design that looks like it could have grown out of the ground. Perfect for a woodland style wedding!

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Years ago I signed up to do an evening course in cake making just for the hell of it and it turned into a hobby, that turned into a passion and finally, after years of making cakes for friends and family, I launched into my own business leaving behind the 9 to 5 job.

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

Ooh good question! Something tiered and whimsical using beautiful wafer paper flowers.
