Enjoy it all, this is planning for the most important day of your lives, keep it fun and don’t get stressed about it. And trust your instincts over suppliers, work with people that you are comfortable with. And eat cake, lots of cake 😊
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Handmade favours made from wood with each guests name on them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial enquiry I will arrange a consult at a time to suit the couple, they will visit me at my home address in my little cake studio where they will get to sample a range of cakes with a cup of tea/coffee and we will discuss all their requirements to ensure their cake is perfect. A £50 deposit is required to book their cake with the remaining balance payable before the wedding. I am happy to chat at any time with the couple to make any changes they might have or answer any questions, I then will deliver the wedding cake on the day of the wedding and set up at the venue.
What is your signature cake?
Tall with sugar crafted flowers and foliage, elegant and pretty.
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
I have always loved baking and anything creative, I worked as a chef for 4 years then I started making birthday cakes and just progressed as my skills improved and now I feel I can do anything, there are no limits really with cake.
What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?
