More about the wedding cakes
Since a young girl Nikki has always been passionate about being in her kitchen and working with food and especially baking. Her delicious recipes are very successful family recipes passed down, and this has expanded into baking for clients and creating specialty wedding cakes and keeping abreast of the new modern trends that are ongoing. In 2008 Nikki won the prestigious "Heavenly Cake" competition at the 7th Annual Bridal Fair held at Canal Walk.

Nikki loves liaising with excited brides and helping them to create their dream wedding cake. All baking, decorating, delivery and set up at the wedding venue, is done by Nikki herself. Imported chocolates, imported liquers, fragrant nuts and seasonal berries can be added to create delicious fresh flavours. Nikki says: "I am passionate about food and baking, and do not mass produce. I bake with love and passion, and really "nurture" my cakes, so they really taste delicious as well as look divine, each cake being made with love and attention to detail."

Besides wedding cakes, Nikki also offers bridal shower parties, where you can choose your own menu, and enjoy a meal that the bridal party has chosen, or Nikki will come to your venue and give a cooking demo based on prior arrangement as to menu choices.

Nikki also makes bridal favour biscuits, special occasion cakes, tarts, profiteroles, petit fours, individual small delights and hand made truffles.
