Peacock Wedding Cake DSC00435

“Douglas did an amazing job with the whole cake process. At any wedding there are a million things going on and to know at the back of my mind the cake was under control was such a relief. Our peacock wedding cake was made with intricate detail and was such a beautiful piece in the room. It was designed to perfection and tasted delicious. It made the day that extra bit special!”

"A big thank you to you and your team for baking and decorating a superb wedding cake for us: Sicilian lemon with Sicilian lemon buttercream filling and a brilliant white icing with design-inspired art-work from our own home - totally original and absolutely delicious!


Your commitment to quality and attention to detail was consistent throughout our conversations, and your own very special approach gave us a one-off cake perfect for our wedding day.

“The charming Douglas designed and made my beautiful purple and black peacock cake for my 'alternative' wedding. He followed a challenging brief of quirky-meets-elegant Tim Burton style. The result was a real show-stopper and tasted yummy too (so nice to have a choice beyond the traditional fruit cake)! I put my faith in the designer after our initial consultation, giving him creative reign to work his magic and the final outcome was a wonderful surprise. Would highly recommend."

"Both the look  and the taste of our  wedding cake  added a touch of class to the  whole day. There were many  positive comments  on the richness of the flavours of the  carrot,  banana  and  chocolate  layers  and the subtle marzipan icing; a pleasant change from the usual  sponge  cake. Douglas'  professionalism  and  patience  in  developing  our ideas during our tasting session ensured the finished cake was perfect."

"We set Douglas and the team the challenge of creating a Gaudi inspired wedding cake. The cake would include three layers: Sicilian lemon, carrot with walnut and almond with orange. The cake would be decorated with coloured tiles and would have a famous Gaudi chimney with cross on top. The cake looked beautiful and tasted delicious. Many of our guests commented that the cake looked like an art work and that it was the best tasting cake they had ever had!


We were also presented with a miniature coloured tile plate to place the decorative chimney cross on afterwards, as a souvenir, which we will cherish. From our first meeting with Douglas we were impressed and reassured that our wedding cake was in safe hands, all the way to delivering it to our venue and offering a cake cutting service, everything went smoothly and we could not be happier.


Thank you Douglas and the team!"

"Hi Doug,


Thank you so much for the cake, it was without a doubt a phenomenal work of art! We both absolutely loved it, I actually squealed with delight when I saw it! That birdcage was fantastic!


It was absolutely delicious too, especially the carrot cake, we had so many comments on how fabulous it was!


You and the team have done us proud. I can't wait to see how our photographer has captured it. You've done a brilliant job and we couldn't be happier.


Thanks again, you're an absolute diamond!


Ellie xx"
