CELEBRATION & WEDDING CAKE FLAVOUR GUIDE
Taste and texture are just as important to me as how a cake looks. I feel fortunate to have been brought up by parents who loved cooking and eating delicious food influenced by cultures from all around the world.
This upbringing nurtured my passion for cooking and baking, leading me to attend catering college and work in professional kitchens where I learnt more about using flavour and texture pairings to excite the tastebuds.
My life-long love affair with food influences my flavour selections and I'm excited for you to try them.
Whenever possible I try to bake with ingredients that are seasonal and grown in the UK so that the best flavours are possible and the environmental impact is reduced as much as possible.
At the time of ordering I will guide you through what fruits and flavours are currently in season and what will be at the time of your wedding. Aside from seasonal flavours there are favourites that I would make all year round which do not use seasonal fruits.
You may have a specific flavour combination in mind or may need a little inspiration. I'm always looking to try out new things, so if you do have a specific flavour in mind let's chat and I'll see what I can come up with.
