Our Family of Cake Makers

The cornerstone of a bespoke service is time.
​Time to communicate ideas, time to develop designs and most importantly the hours put in by the craftsmen and women doing the apprenticeship years and learning their craft.


Always baking (even on her days off), Bekky can often be found experimenting with new recipes and tweaking recipes to make them vegan.
A talented cake decorator, we love seeing Bekky's model animals and characters come to life.
When not baking, Bekky loves to travel to new places (as long as there are cakes & pastries to try!)
We were delighted for Bekky when she was awarded bronze for her competition entry at Cake International 2019.


Juhee is a sugar flower specialist and wedding cake decorator with a background in graphic design.
