These wedding cakes are something else

A beautifully-designed wedding cake is an art in itself, and some women have been successful enough to trade in their day jobs to pursue a career in the craft. Once you have chosen your cake then all you need is your venue, dress, transport and drinks.  At least there is a Mobile Bar Hire Cheltenham company that could help you out with that from sites including . Here we look at three of the top female wedding cake designers extraordinaire.

Rosalind Miller

From textile designer to lecturer to cake maker, Rosalind Miller got the taste for baking after a visit to Magnolia Bakery in New York. After setting up her own cupcake stall at Greenwich Market, Rosalind moved on to wedding cakes.

Rosalind works with her daughter Yasmine and together they have undertaken various exciting challenges, from a larger-than-life gingerbread house for the Christmas display at Harrods to baking enough goodies to fill a 15-metre table for a client in Doha.

Rosalind takes inspiration from fashion, garden and interior design. For the upcoming year, there will be a focus on less formality, metallics, and a new website called Confections.

Elizabeth Solaru

Originally a scientist, Elizabeth Solaru took on a city office job before falling for the enchantment of weddings and taking up baking full-time. She takes inspiration from jewellery, branded fashions such as D&G, and watercolour trends.

The Huffington Post featured a range of Elizabeth’s favourite cake trends. Her new book, Opulencia, was recently released to celebrate 10 years in the business.

Her career in the cake industry has kept her incredibly busy, perhaps most notably when a client at Paris’s Shangri-La requested an eight-tier cake plus enough desserts to fill a 12-foot table. To be able to run such a business successfully, quality products and commercial ovens are a vital investment.

Victoria Watkin-Jones

Victoria moved from the catering industry to the fitness industry and then back again when tempted by the creativeness wedding cakes could offer.

Japanese design is a dominant influence in Victoria’s baking. Her flare for the dramatic and beautiful has led her to produce, among other successes, sculpture-inspired cakes and an incredible cake for a Sheikh’s daughter in Abu Dhabi.

Although dependent on the customer requirements and decoration required, Victoria tries to work on one cake per week so that she can fully dedicate her efforts and create a masterpiece each time.
