What about your business are you most proud of?
The completely bespoke service that we offer. From the design to the actual realization of the cake, couples are free to choose decorations and color combination in order to have a completely unique and special wedding cake.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
1. It usually starts with an email or phone call from the bride or groom describing the colour theme, number of guests and date of the wedding (+ ideas regarding decorations they would like to have on the cake). 2. free consultation in person and/or free tasting + design of the cake (Cristina designs the cake personally) 3. couples are free to decide if they like the drawing or if they want to change/add something :)
What is your signature cake?
We do not have a signature cake, but we do love making fairy tale wedding cakes.
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
A red&teal wedding cake with a Vespa on top! Beautiful and orginal! One of a kind ;)
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
Cristina was truly impressed by some amazing cakes seen in magazines and in shops. She decided to attend my first cake decorating course and it was LOVE at first sight! Willing to improve her skills, she started to attend more and more cake decorating courses from modelling to sugarflowers, baking and wonky cakes. She also studied for the PME Professional Diploma, obtaining the PME Masters Certificate from the Knightsbridge PME School of Cake Decorating.
