Full Description
Every cake I make is individually designed in collaboration with the couple, drawing inspiration from the style and feel of your wedding and the things you love. I invite every prospective wedding couple to a tasting and design consultation where you can try as many flavours as you like and we can discuss design ideas in more detail. I work from the big kitchen of an old Victorian School where I live in beautiful West Sussex, but if it is tricky for you to get to me I can post out samples for you to try at home and we can chat over the phone. I also offer an extensive menu of 'Sweet Treats' - from meringues and iced biscuits to macarons and miniature cakes, which make beautiful dessert tables or personalised favours for your guests. Contact me for my full menu!

So glad we chose you!
Thank you for the beautiful cake you created for us for our special day. We loved it as did our guests - the carrot cake with cinnamon was one of the best cakes we and our guests have ever eaten. So glad we chose you, you were so lovely to work with.

We're incredibly grateful and honoured for you to
I want to take the time to say the cake was beautiful and delicious! Id love to have said the same for the pistachio rose but it was quite literally demolished and devoured by my cousins by the time we returned from the wedding....I don't know how... There were only 5 of them but hey that can only be a good thing ! I'm told it was amazing and given they managed to eat a whole tier I'll take their word for it!. Please know Rejwana & I are incredibly grateful and honoured for you to have baked our cake.

Best Baker in the World!
What can we say… there are no words to describe how amazing the cake(s) where! It blew Jordan and me away when we first saw it and I couldn’t stop staring at it during the wedding breakfast! It looks and tasted amazing and absolutely everyone at the wedding thought it was sensational. Thanks for all your hard work and for being the best baker and decorator in the world!

Most of our guests kept poking it not believing it
I just wanted to say a huge thank you from both of us for the amazing job you did with the cake. Most of our guests kept poking it not believing it was real! I hear it went down pretty well in the night, everyone was very impressed. I didn’t manage to get any on the night but there was a small chunk left that I’ve been snacking on ever since ha. Delicious!

You are incredibly talented and we are so glad tha
Adam and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for our absolutely beautiful wedding cake! We had kept the design a secret and it got absolute rave reviews for the looks but most of all the taste of every tier! We even took two chunks of it on our honeymoon so we could enjoy it more than once! You are incredibly talented and we are so glad that we found you! Thank you again, you were truly a special part of our day and we are so grateful!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Honestly? My own! I made my own cake which took forever - hundreds of handcut flowers - but it was the cake that gave me the confidence so start my business and is holds a very special place in my heart for everything that it represented.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unique, elegant, original, showstopping, delicious

What about your business are you most proud of?

Starting something from the ground up, that grew from the odd cake here and there to multi big-orders weekly.

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

Throw the rule book out of the window! Make it yours, eat the cake, dance to the music, say the vows that YOU want!

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

A farming family's son came to his parents to announce his engagement, swiftly followed by a request to hold the reception in a dilapidated barn on their farm! Over 9 months, the whole family came together to renovate the barn, replacing beams, rebuilding stone walls, laying a new floor. The love that went in to that space was amazing and the result... the most magical space I have ever seen!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I invite every prospective wedding couple to a free, no-obligation tasting and consultation where I invite them to choose four flavours of cake to try and we can chat together about the style of the wedding and how they would like their cake to look. You can come with no ideas or a folder full! Usually there is lots of drawing, tea drinking and enthusiastic conversation after which I make a drawing of the cake and produce a detailed quote. I like to keep an ongoing dialogue with each couple and am happy for the design of the cake to evolve as the wedding planning progresses. I liaise directly with the venue with regards to set-up and delivery to try and make the cake part of your wedding one of the most enjoyable parts of the planning process!
