I have always loved to bake. I first began when at school and helping my mum at home. I made many Victoria sponges and quickly learned from my early mistakes - the biggest one being forgetting the sugar!
I started by making birthday cakes for my children and think my favourite at that time was a 'teddy bear picnic' cake, complete with little plates, a tiny teapot, and sandwiches all laid out on a blue and white chequered tablecloth [made of sugarpaste icing].
Moving on a few years I started receiving orders for celebration cakes after making a cake for a friends daughter - a pink spider cake of all things!.
The older and more experienced I get, the more passionate I have become about it.
It matters to me that your cake will taste as delicious as it looks amazing.
I'm a stickler for details too!
I'm self taught by reading books, watching video tutorials and taking some local classes in decorating skills - I like to continue with courses as often as I can, as there is always something new to learn!
Like many self taught cake designers I started with cupcakes and celebration cakes but found my real love for the art of cake design and decorating, was in wedding cakes.
When you are able to finally set it up on the table you get a wonderful feeling of knowing you have done something lovely for someone's special day.
There is something very exciting about being be able to do this...
Cakes are special! Every celebration ends with something sweet - a cake - and people remember It's all about the memories.
What a great quote by Buddy Valastro - Cake Boss [American Celebrity Chef]
Every Wedding Cake is special... without exception. It is an integral part of your day and for me it's important that every couple who ask me to design and make their cake know that I will give 100% to making the journey an enjoyable one, with a cake that will taste as delicious as it looks stunning and leave you with sweet memories.
Each wedding is unique and individual to every couple which is why I will price each cake individually after a consultation meeting.
It is so important to me that I can design and make the cake that will reflect your vision and taste every bit as good as it will look!
I consider it a huge privilege to be asked to be a part of making your wedding day memories.
Consultations are held at my home where we will sit and chat about your ideas along with drinking tea and eating cake!
Following your consultation and choice of delicious flavours I will send you a quote for your cake with details of a design.
