What is your No.1 wedding planning tip for couples?
If you know the suppliers, venues etc that you want its never too early to book! Secure your date with your chosen supplier and you can finalise the finer points of your requirements at a later point. Many specialist suppliers only take on a limited number of weddings per week, secure your date early to avoid disappointment!
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
A bespoke mount Everest cake of course?! The couple got engaged at base camp and I recreated the proposal scene in cake form at the brides request, it was a complete surprise for the groom on the wedding day.
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
After flying as Cabin Crew for British Airways for 10 years, I decided to start a family. After my children I didn't wish to work away from them so I turned a passion for cakes into a business. I attended many courses & classes to develop my skills and learn new ones. Dollybird bakes was established in 2012, and have grown year on year. I now have a studio in my home so the commute is not too far!
