My name is Debbie and I am the owner and cake designer at My Little Cake Studio. I am based at the edge of Leicestershire on the border of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire and have delivered cakes into London and as far as Devon!
Creating bespoke wedding cakes and making sugar flowers is my passion. I only take on a limited number of cakes a year to ensure each creation gets my my sole attention. I come from a catering background and have taken my Level 2 in Patisserie, but designing cakes has grown organically over the last few years.
Choosing the wedding cake is a task often placed towards the end of the to-do list (although don’t leave it too late to get your date in the diary). This is for a very good reason. The cake should encapsulate ‘your wedding’; all those months/years of planning, creating your theme and colours, your wedding dress, suits and bridesmaid dresses, the location, the table decor and the hours you’ve invested looking for ideas. All that, plus the little something extra that makes the cake personal to you both. The cake needs to complement everything about the two of you, resulting in one piece of edible art! That is the challenge I love. The whole process from the point of speaking to you, listening to your ideas, creating a design, putting it down on paper, baking the cakes, decorating the cake and making the flowers. Somewhere, on every wedding cake I have created, I’ve add a piece of beautiful lace trim to the cake or cake board to be kept as a small memento of your day, perhaps to be re-used for the next special event you both celebrate .
As well as the design of your cake the taste of the cake is equally important. I always bake with the very best ingredients. I keep the sponge flavours simple but great tasting. I’ll create a cake with your choice of flavours and I’m always happy to include something a little different – and I love making a fruit cake.
