About

So, you’re engaged! Congratulations!

It’s your wedding day, the most momentous celebration of your life.  So, you’d like your wedding cake to reflect you both personally and provide a delicious, luxury, experience for you and your guests.

Next, you start the journey of planning your wedding but, with such a huge array of inspiration available to view online, deciding on a particular wedding cake style to suit you and your day, and what you can expect to spend, can be bewildering.  It is possible to search for hours, days even, only to find that you’re filled with indecision.

You have a love of freshly-prepared, naturally good food, a discerning eye, appreciate quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail, attentive and personal service, and now you’d like guidance on commissioning a bespoke cake for your big day.

With 10 years’ experience in designing and creating bespoke wedding cakes, this is where I can help!  I’m Amanda, owner of Amanda Earl Cake Design which I founded in July 2009.

Bespoke design service

With my highly personal and bespoke wedding cake design service, I get to know about you, your wedding day, your likes, dislikes and design preferences.  Banishing any bewilderment or indecision, I guide you through the design process.  Ultimately, I’m able to instinctively create a wedding cake to suit you perfectly, both in aesthetics and taste.  This blog post delves deeper into what you can expect from your wedding cake consultation.

Edible art

Always having been artistically inclined, initially pursuing ceramics, I now apply similar techniques to sugar as I once did to clay but my clients get to eat my work!

I have honed my intricate piping and sugar flower skills, developing my own distinctive style, to enable me to design a unique centrepiece of edible art for your special day, inspired by the elements of your wedding day you have chosen so carefully.

I also create sugar flowers made to order and love to share my knowledge and passion for sugarcraft through private tuition.

Artisan baking

I care about the provenance of the food I eat.  Baking and cake design, with quality, ethically sourced ingredients, has always been my passion.  Previously only my close friends and family indulged but, with a little gentle encouragement, I was convinced that I should share my cakes with you.

What followed was a dedicated process of avidly baking to perfect the ultimate texture of sponge and flavour combinations.  Cake samples were proffered to more-than-willing taste-testers at consumer group sessions.  Their feedback led to even more baking, even more tweaking and even more tasting to create the perfect range for you!

Peace of mind

I provide a professional, friendly and personal service with meticulous attention to detail, giving you peace of mind from initial consultation to the delivery and set-up of your cake.  I am confident that you will enjoy my cakes as much as I enjoy creating them – feel free to read lovely words from my happy clients!  Having received recognition for my work in a number of magazines and blogs, I’m also delighted to be the Regional Winner and a National Finalist in two categories of The Cake Professionals Awards 2020.

If you’d like me to create a luxury bespoke wedding cake, designed for you, inspired by you, and unique to you, please get in touch.
