What is your most memorable wedding?
I absolutely love being given the opportunity to get creative. It's why I love my job so much! I loved designing a black wedding cake, complete with hexagons, black sugar crystals and a wire sculpture. It was a real show-stopper.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, classic, bespoke, quality, unique.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being invited to have my designs in national wedding magazines. It always blows my mind to know that my cakes have been seen by hundreds of thousands of brides and grooms.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Do what YOU want and not what others do.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Sweet polaroid pictures of all the guests from their past at every table setting. It must have taken a lot of effort to do.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Usually couples put down a deposit to secure the date as I get booked up very far in advance. (It's also possible to have a consultation without doing this.) Then we arrange a consultation when they come to the kitchen, spend a lovely hour or so tasting cakes and we come up with some designs. After that, there are as many emails and phone calls as necessary to finalise the design.
What is your signature cake?
I don't have one signature design but they often incorporate fresh flowers.
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
Every one is original and unique!
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
I started baking for local cafes. But I was itching to use my creative side and design wedding cakes like some of the beautiful ones I had been following on social media. I gradually moved into weddings and love it so much, I have never looked back!
What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?
Something tall using wafer paper as it's an unusual technique and is definitely show-stopping.
