Full Description
Welcome to Chocolate Utopia Oxfordshire. I am a cake designer based in Combe near Oxfordshire and I specialise in buttercream and chocolate ganache Wedding cakes and celebration cakes. The beautiful surroundings where I live are a constant source of inspiration and this is often reflected in my cakes, where my favourite thing to create are my unique chocolate artwork flowers and foliage. I use a special technique which I've developed over the years to draw intricate flowers and details in chocolate, which not only look stunning but taste delicious, and will have your guests wowed. I bring both my art & design degree and my professional chef training together in my cakes to create designs with flair, beauty and drama. From 2020 I'll be focusing my work more on wedding and larger celebration cakes, this is so I can make more of the cakes I love to create, and with larger cakes there is more room for creativity so I can really let my artistic flair out. I see the cakes I work on as an artist sees a canvas: for me it's not just a cake, it's a work of art.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Last year I delivered a wedding cake to the Crazy Bear in Stadhampton, which was a venue I had always wanted to see and it didn't disappoint! It was absolutely stunning and I was blown away. My couple had a really cool bat themed purple wedding cake, and they were just a really lovely couple to work with.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

My cake style is- Creative, unusual, different, colourful, pretty

What about your business are you most proud of?

The reviews I get from my customers make me feel like all the hard work is worth it! I love what I do and I love when my customers are over the moon.

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

Keep an open mind and don't be afraid to try something new or something you may not have looked at before. Give you and your guests something memorable.

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

Handmade handstitched napkins for every guest with their initials on them. So pretty!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After a couple have contacted me with a wedding cake enquiry, I first check my availability then give them a rough idea of prices and my style. Then I invite them for a cake consultation with tasting, where they get to taste 5 delicious flavours of cake. We discuss in more detail the style, theme, sizes and everything from cake stand hire to colour of the ribbons, and of course a quote. Following the consultation I send the meeting notes by email so they can read through everything which was discussed. If they are happy to proceed I do colour cake sketches of designs so they can see their ideas come to life on paper. If they are happy with everything I take a 50% deposit to secure their wedding date. I'll then communicate with them via email to discuss any more cake details. I'll also contact their florist, if they are using one, and their wedding co-ordinator at their chosen venue.
