Vintage Style


Last weekend I delivered another Wedding Cake to Claridge’s Hotel in London. I cannot express enough the excitement I feel walking through such beautiful surroundings – you could say that I feel quite at home there, as if I could happily stay… *checks pockets for cash* … but sadly I cannot. My couple wanted to reflect a little of Claridge’s … Read More

‘Tis the Season…


June is marching towards us with increasing pace, meaning only one thing to your friendly neighbourhood Cake Designer… it’s Wedding Season! I confess to being slightly terrified of my diary over the next few months and catching up on a little R&R ahead of the early baking mornings that approach with the warm summer days.
