What is your most memorable wedding?

This will have to be when I made my daughter Kirstie's wedding cake. This was going to be a huge challenge as her husband to be is a massive comic book fan. One night after we had the consultation and tried many cake samples I had a brilliant idea to create a spit cake design. The front of the cake was exactly how Kirstie wanted and the back had little Lego comic book figures and as an added surprise to the Bride and Groom was a picture of there engagement shoot on one of the tiers.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Trendsetting, Bold, Modern, Traditional, Pushing Boundaries.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Bringing on my daughter Kirstie turning this into a family-run business.

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

Remember this is your day. When looking for your suppliers make sure they fit in with your day and can make your wedding dreams come true.

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

This will have to be again at Kirstie's wedding as her favours she had charity pins for Cancer Research and Dementia.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

From start to finish we are here for you. We keep in touch throughout the whole process. We like to meet both couples at a consultation and cake tasting session to discuss their wedding cakes in detail to make sure both parties are clear on what's expected.

What is your signature cake?

This will either have to be our Suitcase design with little figures of the couple on top or our vintage lace design with sugar flowers.

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

An all-black cake.

Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.

Working from home when the family were young, making cakes for family and friends, started the whole love of baking and cake decorating. I then had a passion for moving this forward and decided to take the plunge and rent a unit in Wrattens, a local craft shop in Chislehurst. Working in Wrattens then led to supplying cakes to a new sugarcraft shop, The Cake Gallery until the decision was made to open a shop on Walden Road in Chislehurst which is where Shelley’s Cakes took off. After owning the shop for nine and a half years, the decision was made to close the shop and switch to working from a dedicated studio, and concentrate on making high-end bespoke wedding and celebration cakes.

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

All of our cakes WOW the guests at weddings. Our most recent show stopper would have to be for a couple who asked for a beer barrel 3D wedding cake where all the guests didn't realise it was cake.
