Here you will be able to see Wedding Cakes on display, that will give you an idea of quality, size and scale. Plus a digital portfolio to look through. During this consultation I will pull together all of the elements that you want included in your Wedding Cake, and advise on designs that will work with your numbers, style and budget.

Just Incredible!
Just incredible! Sharon actually did 2 wedding cakes for us, for 2 separate ceremonies. Both were absolutely stunning and the detail on them was unbelievable. On top of that, it tasted amazing and people at the wedding were so impressed. I would highly recommend!

Simply Stunning!
Sharon did a wonderful job with our wedding cake and macaroon favours at our wedding at Eastnor castle at the start of September. She made a beautiful white chocolate and raspberry, fruit, and red velvet tiered cake, and it was decorated with beautiful stencilling and fresh flowers. It tasted absolutely phenomenal and looked simply stunning! For the macaroon favours we had 2 in little paper cages. They were champagne and strawberry, and coffee and baileys flavoured, and wow, they tasted fantastic! And they looked so pretty. I would thoroughly recommend Sharon. Not only is she lovely to work with, but she's a fantastic baker and artist. She was so well organised throughout the whole process and you'll be in very safe and knowledgeable hands. When talking through flavours and designs she's really accommodating and produced a sketch of what we wanted which was really helpful to really see the vision come to life. It really was the best cake I've ever eaten and the best macaroons I've ever tasted! Thank you! X

Thank you so much Sharon for our wonderful Wedding cake. Everyone was blown away by your beautiful daisies and roses creation and it tasted amazing! The gluten free lemon drizzle cake was also delicious. We cannot recommend Sharon highly enough- thank you!

My DreamWedding Cake!
Sharon created my dream wedding cake, not only did it taste amazing but the detail and design was incredible. I had asked Sharon for a 5 tier cake and to use my wedding dress as inspiration for the design, despite only seeing a picture, the texture and detail on the icing matched my dress perfectly. I know wedding cake often goes to waste but I had to fight my guests to get a piece, we had three flavours but my favourite had to be the white chocolate and raspberry! The cake tasting Sharon offered us at her home before the wedding was a treat in itself! She is super professional but so warm and friendly, we are so pleased we chose Sharon and would definitely recommend her to everyone. Our cake was perfect in every way! Thanks so much Sharon!!

Turned My Dream into Reality!
Sharon created our dream Raspberry Eton Mess cupcakes for our wedding in August. They looked stunning and as the dessert for our guests we were so delighted that everyone got to enjoy them. From the moment we visited for the tasting where she had created different types of decoration and cleverly baked in a raspberry to each one as the filling, to the day I arrived at our wedding venue to see it so beautifully set up I was filled with confidence that we had made the right decision in choosing Sharon to be a part of our day. Thank you for turning my dream into a reality and creating such a beautiful and delicious display to fit in with our wedding!
