Amongst the many things to think about when designing your wedding cake, it’s worth considering how to maximise the impact when you and your guests see it first.  


It’s a significant centrepiece to your reception… and you want to set up your wedding cake for your guests to say “wow”!

Achieving the best look for your cake will vary according to your venue.  For example, if you are holding your reception in a room amongst the white marble and chandeliers then your cake will need either considerable sparkle, or some touches of colour to stand out…a white cake will simply fade into the paintwork.

Cake Decorator Required!

We are now looking for a person to join the growing team at Bay Tree Cakes. We need someone with sugar craft experience, including the modelling of flowers and characters who is looking to grow their skills and is able to work to deadlines. Some additional training will be given as necessary. The person will need to work with us 1-2 days a week (likely to include a Thursday/Friday).

Initially we are looking for someone until Christmas but hopefully this will become a long term permanent contract.
