My Cake Philosophy...

 

AM I THE CAKE DESIGNER FOR YOU?

Client focused

Design Lead

Artistically adventurous

Since 2014 I’ve helped dozens of couples realise their cake design dreams with my design-led approach to wedding cakes. My couples LOVE cake and they know what they want when they see it and when they eat it...

Their cake is given an important role to play in their day – it makes a style statement and forms a central part of their décor as well as a delicious treat for their guests. Far from being all about style over substance, my cakes taste as good as they look, incorporating a range of both scrumptiously nostalgic and fresh contemporary flavours.

Are you ready to make cake magic happen?
