Kem Cetinay Cake ITV This Morning

What a week! We received a call on Thursday 18th April from a lovely girl called Christie at Wild Card PR.  Christie had been commission by ITV to search for a cake maker who would be able to design and produce a showstopper for Kem Cetinay’s birthday – and to be wheeled out live on air with Hollie and Phil the following Wednesday.    OH MY GOD!

Well, ‘look no further Christie’ is basically what I said.  We only do showstopping cakes, and whilst time was a major factor ( just a tiny matter of a 4 day Easter bank holiday in the way), there was, basically, no way were weren’t gonna rise to the challenge.

So, it was all hands to the pump with designing and creating and icing and baking (and quite a bit of swearing actually!) but by Easter Sunday we were looking good (well, the team wasn’t but the cake was starting to take shape!)

This cake was so much work, but SO worth it.  Delivering to ITV This Morning and meeting all of the cast and crew was such an amazing experience.  I absolutely Holly Willoughby and to have her holding my hand telling me how talented I am was, well just slightly odd – I mean.. You are Holly Willoughby woman!!!  Philip Schofield was also lovely and we were made to feel so welcome by all of the ITV team.  Kem… What a lovely guy – he LOVED his cake and sent us some lovely messages of thanks .

An absolute pleasure to work on this project and looking forward to the next one!

The Mummy Diaries – Billie and Sam Faiers Cakes!

We recently been very busy working for Billie and Sam Faiers on a number of cakes.    Its been an exciting time as we have been featured in OK Magazine a number of times and also recently appeared on The Mummy Diaries.

The first one we did was in January for Billie’s Bridal Shower.  This cake comprised of nearly two hundred handcrafted sugar roses. We combined with white petals and a delicate hint of gold and the overall effect was really beautiful.

It was lovely meeting Billie and Sam on the day and of course little Nelly.  Nelly is such a character.  Very very funny.

We also worked for Billie and Sam a few weeks later when they commissioned us for their mums 50th Birthday cake.  I loved this cake!  I absolutely love it when we get to design something bespoke and have a free reign on how grand and elaborate the design can be.  The theme was The girls were delighted with the final design and we also received such a lovely thank you from the Birthday girl Suzie.
