When a new lady joined the online Women in Rural Enterprise group locally, having recently returned from living in Spain, saying she makes wedding cakes, I thought this could be another lovely supplier for the blog!
Talking with Doreen she tells me:
"For 14 years I worked as a consultant in IT services then in 2008 I moved to Spain, where
I started my business 6 years ago. having always been an avid cook, I was looking for something to do when I moved to Spain with my husband, initially I went to work for an animal charity and started to bake for fundraiser events. I quickly ran out of ideas for innovative cakes so decided to take a course in cake decorating... and the rest is history. I have since studied in both USA and U.K.
I love everything about my business from creating and testing new recipes to learning new decorating techniques and designing for each bridal couple individually. My style tends to be slightly vintage with floral and and romantic tones often using hand made sugar flowers, edible lace, metallic finishes, hand painting, or sometimes more rustic themes such as naked cakes with fresh florals.
I usually invite the bride and groom and family members to my home to discuss designs, colours and of course cake flavours- I bake up to 4 flavours with corresponding fillings for the bridal party to try. We also agree how the cake is to be presented - I provide stands and a ceremonial knife to cut the cake.
On the day of the event I deliver the cake to the venue at the agreed time, liaising if necessary with their wedding planner, and set the cake up in situ ready for the bride and groom and their guests when they arrive at the venue.
My aim always is to provide a stunning cake which tastes as delicious as it looks.
