Inspiration…

I went to The Princess of Wales conservatory at Kew Gardens back in the summer in search of inspiration for new cake designs. I also have a love of architecture and love the trend for concrete cakes coming over from Australia at the moment. I knew I wanted to bring it all together in a shoot.

My Sister, Sophie (Sophie Lake Photography) suggested a wedding reception shoot with a cake table as a main feature, but to also focus on other key aspects of styling. We wanted to marry together big green leaves, concrete urban style, fun pink and copper, so the concrete jungle theme was born!

The main reason for choosing B Loved Hive as our venue was the amount of natural light. As a warehouse unit offered a perfect urban space for our jungle.

Tell us a bit about your business…

I make beautifully bespoke wedding cakes (and more!) from my home in NW London.

What made you start up the business…

I found cake decorating completely by accident, just 5 years ago, having already been to university, started my career in the corporate world and never baked or decorated before. Over the years, I’ve taught myself everything, having become absolutely hooked on the beauty and elegance of wedding cakes.

As my baking and decorating skills grew over the years I realised that I’d found my calling in life, a feeling I’d not felt at any job – and that’s very exciting! And so earlier this year I decided I would make it happen, slowly and surely, but it’s amazing how much energy you can put into something when you are truly passionate about it. It’s this passion that means whenever and whatever I’m doing that’s cake related, never feels like work, it feels like great fun. Even the admin!
