Mama Cakes is one year old!
What a year it’s been. We celebrate our first birthday having been nominated for the national Wedding Industry Awards 2017!
We started business convinced that the main demand would be for party cakes of all descriptions and boxes of scrummy delights for afternoons teas and perhaps morning coffee. We were ready to deliver all and every time of cake for any celebration, and the more imaginative and creative the specification, the better. People’s love of cake seems to know no bounds, but the demand for wedding cakes and, more recently, associated dessert tables, has been amazing. So, as those of you who have been following Mama Cakes’ transition from infant to adult will know, we finally took the decision to concentrate on creating and delivering gorgeous wedding cakes.
We hope the success of our wedding cakes is because we offer (we believe) something rather special and unique. We try really hard to create a hand-crafted cake to the individual specification of each bride and groom, which also tastes great and looks beautiful: and of course which we deliver to the venue for you. Our tasting studio means you can test the flavour of your cake (tell us you want a light lemon sponge; a traditional fruit cake; a moist, rich chocolate cake – or a layer of each – whichever it is, you can come to check the taste beforehand so that you can be confident of what you are getting) and you can also see design ideas and discuss with us what style of cake you want.
Our success has meant that when Claire and her family decided to move house, they decided to incorporate a purpose-designed and built facility for Mama Cakes. We’ll be moving to the new property early in 2017. It’s still in very much the same location, but will be based in a new house with, excitingly, new facilities. Mama Cakes will have a state of the art baking kitchen, a separate room for decorating, and a studio specifically tailored to make clients feel at ease and to showcase cakes – and with a stunning view of the adjoining countryside through picture windows. You might even see the hens, whose eggs we use in the cakes, wandering past the window!
We’re thrilled to bits with our nomination for the Wedding Industry Awards and also that we have recently been featured in the local press, and we’re hoping that more coverage will follow in future. And, of course, you can meet us in person at local Wedding Fairs. But in the meantime, a big Thank You to all of you who have ordered cakes from us in this first year and been pleased enough with our products to spread the word: what better way to build a business than by obtaining a good reputation?
As you cut your cake and drink a celebratory glass of champagne, Mama Cakes joins you – you are a fundamental part of our success and we hope we will continue to deliver the cakes of your dreams and to inspire fantastic memories.
Cheers! Saluté! Proost! Slάinte! Skål!
