I am a modern, artistic, and nature-inspired cake designer and artist. Creating wedding and celebration cakes – with personality – for style focused, creative, and romantic clients, like you; who appreciate quality and want designs that celebrate them.
I've always had a big imagination and creativity seems to run through my veins. Even when I'm not intentionally trying to be artistic my design instincts usually take over.
I'll be honest, my joy in cakes started with a love of all things sweet and tasty. I grew up watching my mum make many birthday, anniversary, Christmas, and wedding cakes for friends and family - she was quite infamous – and my sister and I would often get to lick the spoon clean or eat an off-cut of marzipan. My interests soon turned to the design and decoration, however, and I began to help my mum push the boundaries with her cake designs. I learnt so much over time and it wasn't long before I was taking on projects myself.
I spent a few years building my confidence, watching countless video tutorials, reading many cake books, and practising new techniques. Friends and family kept telling me “you've got to do this as a business” and so, with a lot of hard work and determination, in May 2016 - I launched Brambleolai.
Aside from designing and creating cakes, I love nothing more than spending time with my friends and family – especially my husband – going for walks, eating out (and enjoying a mocktail or two), or snuggling up on the sofa to watch a film. I'm very appreciative to live in Surrey with such a mix of great towns and nature to explore on my doorstep and even more grateful for the wonderful people I have in my life to share each experience with.
Though we would probably all love to eat cake every single day, Brambleolai was created to focus on the moments in life when an 'everyday' cake just wouldn't do. The moments when you want to create more than just a “that's nice”...the moments when you really want to make an impression.
Quality, worth, and professionalism, are core values for the brand, as is delivering a light, friendly, and honest service. You want to be able to rest assured – knowing your cake is being created with care and attention – so all cakes are designed, baked, and decorated by me and I only create a limited number of cakes per month. I take pride in each creation, and I thrive on being organised, so you can trust I will appreciate and respect the finer details, without losing sight of your overall vision.
