Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

We are happy to create any style of cake, from modern cakes to vintage and rustic designs.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our family have been running the business since 1910. We are the fifth generation of the family, running our second shop.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples can book a consultation to visit our shop and discuss ideas. You can try our delicious cake and talk to Amber about your wedding theme, and any ideas or designs you have in mind for the cake.

What is your signature cake?

Our angel cake is the most popular flavour by far. We have couples and other customers coming back into the shop weekly, to buy our angel cake because it is that delicious!

What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?

We are often asked to create completely bespoke designs. One of the most original was when we recreated wedding dress lace.

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Our bakery has been open since 1910, so it has been passed down through four generations of the family. Helen, the current owner has been decorating cakes for 30 years. Helen was mentored by her Grandfather, but also attended college to learn her craft.
