I was stunned when these images dropped in to my inbox. Fresh, beautiful and awe-inspiring tiers of decadent icing in wonderful colours. Perhaps the perfect wedding cake? 

Name: Andrea Freeman – Sugar

Bit of background on you:

Mmmm, degree in Economics, few boring years as an Actuary, retrained as primary school teacher, then finally found my vocation in cake design! Learnt from my Mum, but determined to do it all in a slightly more funky, stylish way….

Background on your business:

Sugar can be summed up by my tag line ‘Beautiful Cakes designed for Eating’. So many cakes look great but taste dry and boring….. I just love the look on clients’ faces when they bite into one of my cakes at a consultation. Sugar offers a truly personal service – no rules or catalogues to choose from, just a unique cake that will be perfect for YOU!

Favourite flavour of cake/cupcake/pastry:

Torn between lemon or white chocolate and raspberry.

Most memorable wedding creation you have done:

Probably my first ever 4 tier cake last year with almost no decoration except two red roses….nothing to hide any lumps and bumps so the whole thing had to be perfect AND
the venue had to move it between the ceremony and reception. Nerve wracking!

Most Memorable

Advice to brides about selecting their cake, any tips or things to remember?

Make sure you TASTE the cake before you order, and if you order cupcakes ensure there are more cupcakes than guests as there are never any (of mine!) left! Also don’t rely on photos as photoshop can cover up a poor finish! If you can’t decide between a tiered cake and cupcakes, why not have both in form of a dessert table?

Dessert Table

Do you have a recipe you are willing to share for budding bakers? 

Give away my secrets?!!! Nah…..

I met Andrea at the Landmark Wedding Fair and her cakes are even more impressive in real life!

I can't wait for my consultation with her and this blog-post was a nice sneak preview 😉 At least I can use some of this as a conversation starter if we run out of things to say about cake (never!!) 🙂
