My name is Gemma and I am the Owner of White Peony Cake Company.
I am a fully qualified patisserie chef, and have been creating cakes for all occasions for the past 8 years.
I started working as an assistant in a popular cake shop based in Newquay, which then lead me onto completing my chef and patisserie qualifications at St Austell College.
During my patisserie career, I have spent time working for Rick Stein, as well as undergoing courses and training with the likes of 'Peboryon' and 'Couture Wedding Cakes by Sweetcheeks Ltd'.
I absolutely LOVE designing, baking & decorating cakes and I particularly enjoy taking a customer's ideas and creating it into something which is both incredible to look at and eat!
Everything I make is made to perfection in my little kitchen in Cornwall!

Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
I am most proud of my training and qualifications. I pride myself on keeping myself up to date with the new trends and constantly learning and improving my techniques.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be realistic about your budget. It's easy to run away with your dreams and ideas for your perfect day, but most people have a budget to follow, and that's absolutely fine. Be honest with your suppliers and let them design a perfect cake, flowers etc for you to suit your budget. Many will explain where you can cut costs and which bits you should spend more on.
What is your signature cake?
My signature cake is definitely cakes that include sugar paste flowers. This is something I absolutely love to make and am very passionate about making sure every flower is perfect to give such a realistic look on a cake.
What is the most original creation you have baked for a wedding?
The most original creation I have baked would have to have been my very first wedding cake which was over 8 years ago! It was a cake based on the theme 'Something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue' and included a tier which was identical to the Bride's aunt's wedding cake 20 years previously. It was so lovely to bake something so personal to the couple and their families and I spent a lot of time designing this to make it perfect for them.
