Nicky Svensen Cakes

Completely self-taught, I began making cakes about eight years ago, focusing predominantly on wedding cakes in the last couple of years.

My cakes are ‘baked from scratch’ using quality ingredients as it’s really important to me that my cakes taste as good as they look.

My specialty is creating beautiful lifelike sugar flowers and foliage which feature in most of my cakes.

The process of designing a wedding cake usually starts when I sit down with the couple many months before the wedding and, for me, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the design become a reality on their big day.

Meet Deb Brown…..Being a celebrant is the ‘Best Job in The World’ and a truly unique way to not only express my creativity but also to bring out the joy and imagination of my clients. Everyone is so different!

It has been 8 years and I still can’t believe how blessed I am, to be sharing in people’s special moments, and forever asking myself, is this real? The answer is yes, I am surrounded by passion, joy, creativity, imagination and love; whether it be a wedding, a naming day, a commitment or renewal of vows ceremony, even life celebration ceremonies (ect. funeral/scattering of ashes). (Yes, I do them all).

“Whatever your moment, I Promise to Love, Honour and Cherish Your Day”
