Louise has always had a passion for baking and she adores making celebration cakes. A few years ago she was asked to make a friend’s wedding cake and loved the whole process – her passion for cake making has grown from there.
All cakes are designed as bespoke, Louise will work closely with you to ensure it delivers on every level. While each cake is unique, you’ll find seasonal fruit and flavourings in each sponge and filling and decorated with beautiful fresh flowers, foliage and fruit. Louise is a firm believer in using ingredients when they are at their seasonal best.
Here you’ll find a few examples of her work.
1. Matt and Carolyn’s Cake consisted of a vanilla sponge sandwiched together with homemade strawberry conserve and vanilla buttercream. The semi-naked cake is also covered in vanilla buttercream.
2. Two examples of chocolate ganache cake, on the left is double chocolate cake, pure indulgence, decorated with edible French marigolds and 24 carat gold leaf. On the right vanilla buttercream a decorated with chocolate curls and gold dust.
3. Cleo’s mummy left the design up to me but requested her favourite cake, carrot, for Cleo’s Christening, filled with orange scented cream cheese and decorated with edible flowers.
For Cleo’s 1st Birthday I made a Raspberry and Sicilian lemon cake, the buttercream is flavoured with freeze dried raspberry powder which gives it the prettiest shade of pink.
4. Martin and Claire commissioned their wedding cake well in advance, initially they wanted a fondant cake but over time and research decided on a semi-naked cake. Their wedding was in November so theywanted a cake to reflect late autumn. Vanilla sponge filled with homemade blackberry conserve and white chocolate ganache, dried blood oranges adorn the cake with fresh blackberries and eucalyptus parvi.
5. This cake was made in December, as you can see I wanted it to reflect the season: filled with blueberry conserve and a lime flavoured buttercream. I frosted the blueberries and cranberries.
6. This is a personal favourite, I love the combination of white chocolate, passionfruit and raspberries.
7. Just a sample of how lace effect works on a buttercream cake, ideal for a wedding.
8. A rustic autumnal themed cake for an engagement party. Semi-naked red velvet cake with Swiss meringue buttercream
9.. This cake was created for Philippa and Johnny in May, as you can see Philippa had chosen beautiful seasonal flowers. The cake itself is chocolate with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and filled with fresh raspberries.
10. This Swiss meringue buttercream cake consisted of three different flavours. Victoria sponge with homemade strawberry jam for the bottom, then chocolate, raspberry and vanilla and for the top tier lemon, passionfruit and white chocolate.
11. The bride gave me a very clear brief, it had to be chocolate! Two different flavoured chocolate cakes beginning with red velvet and raspberry, followed by dark chocolate orange. Finished with dark chocolate ganache. Chocolate lovers heaven.
12. This Pansy cake can be made in any flavour and filling.

Louise prepared and delivered the wedding cake of our dreams. A 3-tier cake with different flavours, iced in a classic style reflecting the aesthetic we had shared at the start of planning. The 3 flavours of cake were delicious – classic Victoria sponge, chocolate and raspberry and white chocolate and passion fruit. The cake was light and perfectly balanced. Louise kindly coordinated with our florist to ensure the floral arrangement was incorporated seamlessly on the final cake. We wish we could enjoy a cake like that on every special occasion! Thank you Louise!
Best, Hannah Baker-Bungey
