What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of the way that my couples recommend me to others. I get most of my business through recommendations, and it's the relationships I build with my couples that makes me both the proudest and happiest!!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan early, then relax!
We're taking bookings for 3+ years in advance, but all we ask for is a consultation and small deposit to secure your date, then you can relax, knowing one of the important things is sorted!
Planning a wedding it supposed to be fun.. I'll do my best to take as much pressure off you both as possible! :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love the little stuff - Things most people would overlook... I've made little figures hidden in the design of a cake; Favours and table decorations that mean nothing to anyone except the couple; or whole themes that shouldn't normally work, but just sum up your personalities!
It's your day, why not make it REALLY yours?!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I normally have a chat with my couples via email / message to start, to make sure I'm available for your chosen day and have a quick discussion about ideas etc.
Then I'll book you in for a free, no-obligation consultation at my Studio, where we can discuss your ideas in more detail, you can try some cake flavours and see some examples of my work, all over a cuppa!
The studio setup means I also have examples of Stationery, Chair Covers, Flowers and Photography all around me, so you can get ideas about more than just your cake!
Then, I'll sketch up your design, send out a written quote and breakdown of our Consultation.
If you want to book, you then pay your deposit to secure your date, with nothing more to worry about until 6 weeks before the big day.
At that point, we'll touch base again, make sure everything is still as you want it to be, and you pay the remainder of your balance.
Then, on the day, I'll come and get everything set up, so you have nothing to worry about and can just enjoy the day!!
What is your signature cake?
My Teapot cake is the thing I'm best known for, and it's made its way into my logo too!
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
Recently I have made a Walking Dead wedding cake - complete with zombies and a blood-covered Bride and Groom!!!!
What would be your show stopper in the Great British Bake Off?
I got the the final auditions of the 2012 series of GBBO, so this is easy for me!
I made a rough iced White Chocolate and Raspberry cake - which the judges said was "amazing" :)
