It was delicious and moist and by the time we cut our cake and danced our first dance it wasn't long before it all got eaten. The cake literally vanished. Haha!
On behalf of Gary and myself we just want to say a massive massive thank you for all the hard work you put into creating our wedding cake. Our cake was just so amazingly beautiful. It was STUNNING and so tasty. It actually exceeded all our expectations. It was delicious and moist and by the time we cut our cake and danced our first dance it wasn't long before it all got eaten. The cake literally vanished. Haha! We've had several compliments from all our guests on who baked the cake and I've given out your website to quite a number of my guests. Lucy, It's been an absolute pleasure working with you. I feel so emotional writing this email to you. Well done!! You've done such a great job.

Can't thank Lucy enough
Our wedding was this Saturday 10/11/2018 and we can't thank Lucy enough, as a family of allergic sufferers she was able to understand our needs and work on our cake to the best out come possible. Everyone had said how tasty and moist it was and asked where our cake was from. I just can't wait to try our top tier at Christmas now. Thank you again Lucy.

From the moment I booked Stable Cottage Cakes to make my wedding cake, I felt totally at ease
From the moment I booked Stable Cottage Cakes to make my wedding cake, I felt totally at ease. Lucy has such a calm and caring nature, nothing phased her. She was genuinely interested in my wedding and asked about many details of the wedding, that hadn't even crossed my mind, that were important so that everything matched and looked its best. I was sent a quote and was able to adjust bits with no issues. I was so excited to see my cake once I arrived at my wedding. I was amazed at how amazingly Lucy has displayed this, so so beautifully placed and finished off. Even a congratulations card was left in my card box from the company - a lovely little touch!! The cakes takes delicious and I was so pleased I had chose Stable Cottage Cakes with their free range eggs from their own chickens. Thank you so much! Georgia

A great fellow supplier - wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
As a fellow supplier, I bump into Lucy at venues and wedding fairs often and she's always lovely, friendly and professional. A previous client of mine had mentioned her to me, saying that Lucy and I both approach our businesses with the same ethos and that we were both the best suppliers she used. So I didn't hesitate to choose her when I needed a birthday cake for my son. I sent her a sketch of what I was thinking of and she produced it exactly - it was perfect! And delicious too. Lucy also was kind enough to get hold of some train candle holders as a finishing touch and left me with extra sprinkles, just in case. As we were taking the cake some distance away, I was nervous about constructing it but Lucy left me with clear instructions and it was so easy. As a fellow wedding supplier, I recommend Lucy to lots of clients as she clearly deserves to do well. Thanks Lucy!

Travel Notes

I often meet clients at The Burford Bridge Hotel in Leatherhead as it has a nice quiet lounge for a cuppa and a good chat, but I'm more than happy to travel to venues closer to clients if they are based further afield.

What is your most memorable wedding?

The most unusual cakes are always the ones that draw attention, and I remember setting up one which replicated a stary night sky. It was at rather a busy venue and the whole time I was setting up there were people stopping behind me to marvel at it!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Varied (that's what keeps it fun!), Classic, Rustic, Personalised, Bespoke

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that I have created it from nothing. To now be running a successful wedding cake business 4 years on from my starting point is something I am still only just getting my head around! I also love the fact that I am able to promote the message of animal welfare through just doing what I love - my girls (ex-battery hens) have never been so famous and are just as spoilt as ever, something they truly deserve after their rough start in life.

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

Excel is your new best friend. By logging and budgeting everything, you can keep track of payments made and ones that will be due, this not only helps you to stay organised but also keep track of budget. Can I give two tips? Second would be get on pinterest! I don't know what else it's useful for in life but it's ideal for wedding planning!

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

Oh gosh there are just so many, I love how they are all so different. I once saw a display table in the reception drinks area with a whole array of family photos of loved ones who couldn't be there on the day, which I thought was a lovely touch, and a great talking/focal point during those lulls at weddings during the photos where everyone is making polite conversation!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I meet most couples through wedding fayres on online, so that is usually the first point of contact. Then once we are in touch we exchange a few emails so establish my availability, then meet for a coffee and a chat. I find this the best way to discuss the numerous options, as it's so much easier to discuss in person. I bring my portfolios and ask the couple to bring a selection of photos they like and we go from there! Samples of my sponge can also be provided for couples who havent tried it at wedding fayres, so you can see for yourself how my hens fresh eggs make all the difference for the perfect sponge. So please do get in touch to arrange your no-obligation consultation. stablecottagecakes@gmail.com
