MTS Minkiemoo Bakery_0001 Gourmet Buttercream Wedding Cakes…

Today we welcome the very lovely Debbie from Minkiemoo Bakery to the Mr & Mrs Unique Directory. I first met Debbie at our last Tie The Knot Carnival in May and instantly loved her cakes. Bold, bright and quirky with a retro twist, her buttercream cakes certainly stand out, plus they taste amazing!

Here Debbie tells us a bit more about her cakes…

Tell us a bit about your business…

We produce Quirky and some would say Kitsch (that’s our seaside upbringing coming through) Gourmet Buttercream Wedding Cakes. But we also produce brownies, handmade vegetarian marshmallows, cupcakes, iced biscuits and lots of other scrummy sweet things.

Some are available in Gluten Free and Vegan options too. We use the finest quality ingredients, always free range eggs (usually laid by our local hens: Kylie, Witney, Cilla, Alice [Cooper] and Beyonce), as much organic produce as possible and bake in small batches to order from our riverside country cottage kitchen – you can even find us at our local Farmer’s Market too.

What made you start up the business…

Baking is just in the blood! We had a Great Great Uncle who owned and ran the local bakery in his Gloucestershire village, a Mum who made the most amazing wedding cakes (and exquisite wedding dresses too, come to think of it – clever old stick!), a brother who trained and worked as a baker, and a son who is a Michelin Star trained chef, turned development chef, turned baker now making artisan breads – he’s our tester for all new flavours and products and is a tough audience to win over. So, picking up a mixing spoon too was going to happen at some point!

What makes you Unique…

We like to think it’s our ‘creative’ approach towards wedding cakes! Being brought up in a south coast seaside town, we love bold colours and usually take inspiration from vintage, or retro colours/ fabrics/ dresses/ interiors etc. and turn that inspiration into something a little bit different for the modern day bride to be. And being such foodies, it is absolutely essential to us that not only do our cakes look the part, but they taste utterly fabulous too!

What kind of couples match your style of service…

Couples who are really looking to break with tradition – who want something alternative, truly unique, beautiful and damn tasty for their wedding cake!

Tell us what you love about your business…

Having someone walk into a room, seeing one of our cakes and saying WOW! Then taking a mouthful and saying OMG! …Being able to provoke that reaction in people is a wonderful thing and if we can give that experience to a couple on their big day from all their guests, then we get a very warm fuzzy feeling!

Most favourite event/ wedding…

It has to be the very first wedding we ever made a cake for! Siobhan & Guy were the bride & groom – two close personal friends – so found the whole ordeal unbelievably stressful! Drank way too much rum n coke at the reception through sheer relief it was all over, slipped down some stairs at the venue and broke two ribs – Ouch!!

We had kept the cake a total surprise for both of them – so seeing their faces on arrival into the reception room was very emotional and it will always be our most fave cake ever made – from top to bottom covered in teeny sugar flowers – top tier vanilla, middle tier chocolate and bottom tier rum n raisin – it tasted pretty good too, even if we do say so ourselves!

People’s reaction to your business…

Usually amazement at the array of colours we use and they often can’t believe they’re actually made of buttercream!

Future plans…

Hopefully, to take our little business from strength to strength; creating vibrant delicious cakes, for brides with their ‘finger on the pulse’ who don’t want to conform when it comes to their big day!

Well we love it!!! To find out more visit Minkiemoo Bakery and they cakes they can produce for your wedding/event, check out their website here
