“Be fearlessly authentic.”
Sometimes viewed as just a mere blob of flour, eggs and sugar and designed according to the pressures of status quo, It’s saddens me that sometimes the wedding cake is underestimated, overlooked, or worse, recognised as something from a commercial bakery.
I want to break this convention; by ensuring the cake ties in harmoniously with the overall wedding style and the couples' love story.
It is my firm conviction that great weddings are the ones reflective of the couple and their individualized style. A beautifully styled wedding that is authentically matched right from the very beginning through to and including the cake.
When I am commissioned to design a wedding cake, I encourage couples to begin by collecting imagery not of other wedding cakes, rather of favourite works of art, fashion, architecture, music and special themes in their relationship. I work closely with stylists, florist and venue managers so that their wedding cake will not be hidden away and rolled out for a brief moment before it meets the knife, rather ensuring it is delicately integrated into the entire mood of the event.
This process of gathering imagery and studying the weddings' mood serves as a guide to finding a design that is authentic to themselves.
With this valuable information I then forge into reality a design that remains authentic to their story... their cake story.
