What is your most memorable wedding?
Setting up a wedding cake at Northbrook Park in Hampshire - I was concentrating hard, carefully placing sugar roses and petals on the cake. At the most inoportune moments, the resident peacocks would let out the most almighty screeches. That certainly stays in my mind, beautiful though they were.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
After initial emails where I confirm availability, and give an initial estimate I then organise a wedding cake consultation (with tasting) so that design ideas and flavours can be discussed in more depth.
Once the design has been agreed, I will then email a wedding cake summary (along with a sketch if needed) with all the details required for the cake.
For very large cakes, a second consultation is offered if further colour-matching and design elements need to be finalised.
