Fern and Diane are a Mother and Daughter team who live 2 minutes from each other and think, talk and research wedding cakes all the time!!
Diane undertook an apprenticeship when she when she was 15 with an "old school" wedding cake maker when it was just Fruit Cake and Royal icing....staying for 4 years whilst at college. She continued to make wedding cakes for family and friends for years whilst raising a family and working in Social Care. An avid baker, she started to use her family style recipes based on great ingredients and a lot of love to expand her skills and knowledge in making great cakes.
Fern was never a great baker, or a skilled decorator growing up but, just to prove to all of us can, she has developed great baking and beautiful modelling skills to be able to join Diane in the quest for the perfect wedding cake.
For 5 years Fern headed up their Tea Rooms and Cake Boutique in Clevedon, North Somerset whilst Diane managed the Newport Kitchen but when their lease expired on their beautiful tea rooms they decided to continue to offer an online business using the delicious coffee at the Walton Park Hotel to tempt Brides in for consultations in Clevedon as well as the charm of a Homestyle kitchen in Newport.
The last 5 years have brought a lot of fun and recognition for their cakes. In 2012 they were nominated and competed in ITV's Britain's Best Bakery (it's still saved on Diane's planner!) as well as having recipes featured in the Britain's Best Bakery Cookbook. They have been nominated in The Welsh Wedding Awards in 2013 and 2015, and in 2015 won a prestigious Silver Medal at Cake International competition at the NEC.
But their passion is beautiful wedding cakes, happy Bride and Grooms, and the challenge to continue to learn and develop their skills to help people achieve a cake which really says something about them on their special day!
