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 .

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 .
