Planning your wedding cake can seem daunting.  I get it!

  • delight your guests
  • be easy to commission
  • be made by someone who listens to what you want

Hello there!

I get that you want all of the above for your wedding cake and you’ll see from the testimonials from some lovely clients that I’m someone you can trust to deliver that for you.


Having been lucky to have learnt from some of the best cake artists in the world and with 100’s of cakes under my belt since starting my cake business in 2018, I am so proud to offer an experienced and professional wedding cake design service across South Wales and beyond.


I love cakes that just make you smile!  My style is clean and elegant with a classic but modern feel. I love luxurious touches like edible gold leaf (you don’t have to have it ALL gold leaf like my home page photo… unless you want to of course!)


I specialise in sugarpaste-iced cakes with crisp edges and fine details and I really love making delicate sugar flowers – they are always in season and can be treasured long after the last dance.


So I can give your cake my full attention I only take on a limited number of cakes, ideally only 1 to 2 wedding cakes per week, and never 2 in the same day so rest assured your special delivery is in safe hands!


I’d love to hear about your dreams for your wedding cake…..

On a more personal note:

Starting my cake business came after a long career in engineering and project management – I wanted my work to be more rewarding, creative and to work with clients on a more personal level.


I took a short sabbatical working as a chalet host in the French Alps (making ALOT of cakes!), I left engineering to start cake decorating training and I haven’t looked back since!


  • My weekends are planned around food!
  • I’ve always loved baking, crafts, reading and growing flowers and vegetables
  • I can listen and I’m calm, pretty quiet, kind and dependable
  • I am vegetarian and I also have coeliac disease
  • I grew up in Hong Kong and love its multi-cultural nature
  • I’m not sporty but enjoy walking and skiing (or perhaps just the apres ski!)
