What is your most memorable wedding?
It may seem like a cliche answer but all my weddings are memorable. I like to think I build up a great friendship with my clients and as all my cakes are bespoke each cake is as unique as the clients themselves
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
luxury, exclusive, delicious, beautiful, chic
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am proud of the standard of the cakes we produce. I feel our attention to detail allows us to stand out against the rest and our focus on 100% edible decoration rather than a cake with some ribbon trimmed round the bottom is a great indication of the level clients should expect.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't just focus on price alone - build up a relationship with your suppliers. After all - you have to trust them.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I delivered a cake once and the couple had had the guests names engraved into smooth stones to use as place settings- i thought it was a really unique idea
Describe your typical process with a couple.
A couple will email or call and we will book them in for a one to one consultation where they will try their cake and discuss designs. If they chose to book an order confirmation is emailed to them and the lines of communication are open for them to get in touch at any time. 4 weeks prior to the wedding we will email the couple to confirm the final design and the day before the wedding the couple are invited to our studio to come and see their wedding cake
What is your signature cake?
We were the original creators of the now often replicated champagne sponge.
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
Every cake i make is original
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
My late Nan made wedding cakes and I inherited her genes ;)
What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?
A bespoke all edible wedding cake featuring detailed piping and hand made embellishments.
