A wedding cake can be an incredible centrepiece for your Big Day; it can tie together themes, colours and ideas; it can serve as your dessert, be a mid-evening sugar hit to keep everyone on the dance floor or serve as your favours – it’s just got to be delicious and make people say, ‘WOW!’. On this basis I set up the Boutique Bakery – to provide scrumptious and elegant cakes that help make your day perfectly memorable.
Based in a home studio in Chester, Boutique Bakery is a multi-award-winning wedding cake studio run by me, Nicola Thomas, providing elegant, creative and delicious designs to couples primarily across the North West and Wales
With a background in art history, I have previously worked in leading London fine art galleries and also for an iconic design store. I have been fortunate to combine this experience with training with some of the cake world’s premier teachers, which has allowed me to refine my skills and define the ‘look’ of a Boutique Bakery creation; clean architectural lines and a limited colour palette combined with the softness and fragility of sugar blooms.
The experience of making my own wedding cake taught me a number of things, the most important of which was that flavour and texture is key. Who wants an amazing looking cake that tastes bland and sticks dry crumbs to the roof of your mouth? I offer an ever-expanding selection of both classic and inventive flavours to ensure that your cake is always going to taste as good as it looks.
So, if you’ve got the excitement of a wedding coming up, please get in touch – I’d love to have a chat, over some cake.
