Cake Flavours

amazing wedding cakes


I love creating new cake flavours , discovering unexpected combinations that work together. Bespoke wedding cocktails are very popular at the moment , so why not have a bespoke wedding cake flavour?  I can use your favourite cocktail or tipple as a basis for your bespoke cake .

Below are some of the more popular flavours .

Traditional Fruit Cake  – Rich fruit cake made with top quality plump fruit generously steeped in orange juice ,brandy & sherry  the cakes are matured for a minimum of 6 weeks and ‘fed’ twice with brandy.


All ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible , if local ingredients are not available I use organic, fair-trade & rainforest alliance alternatives.

In the standard recipe celebration cakes ,I use British sugar , Hampshire flour ,  English butter , top quality preserves , and  eggs are freshly laid free range from a local farm . 

Cakes are prepared in my fully inspected and approved kitchen where nuts, soya, dairy , eggs, wheat & gluten are used so I cannot guarantee there will not be traces of these ingredients in the cakes.

I am able to make Paleo diet Wedding cakes (no refined sugar/grains/dairy) , please contact me for details .
