What is your most memorable wedding?

Tasty, fun, stylish, unique, colourful

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I delivered a Star Wars themed wedding cake recently and seeing both the bride and groom cry when I took it out of the box absolutely made my day!

What about your business are you most proud of?

My business was born from a love of baking and the need to satisfy my husband’s very sweet tooth! I was made redundant just after getting married and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do next. I was bored at home and still in that fabulous newly wed stage so thought I'd bake my new husband a cake. Once I started that was me, I'd got the baking bug! I couldn't wait to try different flavours, go on cake decorating classes to pick up hints and tips. And that feeling hasn't changed. Initially I took it slowly, it was just cupcakes I offered. Then came birthday cakes and then wedding cakes. I didn't want to jump head first and get it wrong so I took my time, built my business up slowly and learnt some valuable tips along the way. Wedding cakes are now my favourite to make because of the thought process, the love, the meaning that goes into each and every one.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I love cake consultations with couples. It's a great opportunity for me to get to know the couple and for them to get to know me. These consultations are a great way of pulling lots of ideas together, making each cake personal and making sure it's all in the detail. It also means cake tasting!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A star wars themed wedding cake with one tier stencilled to look like the death star!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My most popular flavours are chocolate fudge, lemon + raspberry, salted caramel, red velvet and sticky toffee

What is your signature cake?

I have seen so many but little things like water bowls for dogs at a teepee wedding, storm trooper table decorations, hand made Marvel comic table flowers .... I could be here for hours!

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

I am so proud that my business was born from a love of baking for my husband who has an extremely sweet tooth. I baked so much he ended up bringing cakes to work everyday! One day, I received a telephone call from his boss asking me to make his daughter's birthday cake and the rest as they say, is history .......

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Chocolate fudge cake with lotus biscoff buttercream - my absolute favourite!

What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?

Wedding cakes cost more than you think so try and set yourself a realistic budget. Don't choose someone because they are the cheapest. Choose the person you are most comfortable with. Your wedding cake will probably be the most expensive cake you'll ever buy!
