If you are thinking of booking me to make your wedding cake, here is an example of the yummy samples that you can try at our consultation. This is a chance to meet, discuss ideas, look at colour samples and of course, eat cake! Andy & Aimee wanted to try rich fruit, lemon, chocolate, vanilla and carrot cake. They are getting married next February and I am so looking forward to making their cake.
The beauty of ordering a cake is it can be designed exactly to YOUR specification. This cake was ordered for a keen cyclist for his 70th Birthday. However, there was 3 guests coming to his party who also had birthdays very close to him, so the customer generously decided to include them on the cake too. That's the kind of cake you'll never find in a supermarket! The cake was a 10" lemon sponge filled with handmade lemon curd and lemon buttercream, I had a lovely phonecall to say how much is was enjoyed.
I really enjoyed making the models for this next cake, a 'good luck at vet school' cake (never seen one of those in a supermarket either!). The original sketch I sent to the customer just had the instruments and a cat & dog on, but she requested a tortoise too, which was no problem. So, this poorly band of animals are sat on top of 3 layers of chocolate cake, filled with chocolate buttercream and covered in chocolate ganache.
September is fully booked, with a wide range of cakes for me to look forward to making. There is still space for most of October, but November is very nearly full too. December is booking fast, Christmas cake details will be available soon. A £10 deposit will hold your date in my diary.
