Cake has played a role in my life as far back as I remember. One of my earliest memories is being allowed to lick the cake bowl out or being given the spoon to lick.
I have always baked, initially making the children’s birthday cakes and always taking cake as a gift when visiting.
A chance opportunity allowed me to start taking orders and that continued until I was able to open a small cake shop. There is never a sad occasion for cake, it is always a celebration. Weddings. Became a part of my cake life and that absolute pleasure of being able to create something and be involved in that special day is something that I never take for granted.
These days I like to restrict myself to weddings cake but try hard to give them some personality and represent my couple. This is often the only surprise they will have as they have chosen everything for their celebration. They have to trust in me and I have to be sure that I understand their ideas. It’s a great match. I am happy to work within my own local area or travel to their venue, that is part of the initial discussion process, as are tasters.
Each cake is different and that is the fun. I like the classic styles but I love the quirky and the different. Best of all I enjoy meeting all of the couples who have embarked on their wedding journey, their stories of meeting and plans for the future. It really is the best job
We have travelled to some amazing wedding venues across North Wales, Cheshire, the Wirral and Shrewsbury. There is a huge array of spectacular places for weddings and it is difficult to choose my favourites.
I love every single wedding cake that I make and can remember each one. However there have been occasions when the cake has a resonance for me.
The first image is taken from a very different view point and I just loved that about it. I never see a cake from above and so it stays in my mind. You also get to see the brides dress in a way that is unusual.
The second was designed entirely by the couple and I just had to create that design. It was one of the most fun cakes every but contained lots of different techniques so was also quite challenging.
The third was a recent cake at a new venue. They just worked so well together and whilst a simple cake, the sugar flowers gave it such elegance, I fell in love with it.

My business has been running since October 2014 but I had a previous cake business for 9 years.
My catchment area is North Wales, but I travel to any part of the country if the couple want me too.
About 100-110 per year.
