What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable as each one is special and such a happy occasion. I remember mine !!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am proud of my cakes and also my client care. It is very important to me that every client is given the very best service.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book all the main items well in advance. You don't have to make final decisions with your supplier until nearer the time of your wedding but you can relax knowing that the date is saved for you. Have fun !!!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I have seen so many lovely ideas that I could not list them. Ideas that are very personal to the couple always inspire me.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I aim to make the process of choosing your wedding cake as enjoyable as possible. After initial contact I offer a wedding consultation if that is convenient for you. Some couples due to other commitments prefer not to have a consultation, I am flexible and aim to fit in with your needs. I love to design a cake with you taking inspiration from other elements of your wedding such as the dress and flowers. Anything can be used for inspiration for instance the architecture of your wedding venue or a favourite place or a love of yours such as the ballet. While we are chatting I make a sketch interpreting our ideas. I want your cake to reflect you, your life and wedding, to be be truly personal to you. I provide samples of wedding cake sponges in various flavours for you to try. Once we have decided on design I can provide a price. Should you wish to go ahead with your booking I ask for a deposit to save the date.
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
I made a cake recently that was based on a Lladro sculpture that the couple had bought together. The cake was beautiful and unique and was topped with a hand modelled sugar intertwined couple. It reflected the personalities of the bride and groom beautifully.
Describe how you got into making wedding cakes.
I have always made cakes and my mother and father had a bakery many years ago. My mother was an amazing cake decorator and I have been inspired by her.
