I used to love baking with my grandma as a young child, she was a great all-round cook and baker and taught me the fundamentals. What's kept me baking is that I have a serious sweet tooth!
Here at Amara Cake Boutique, we offer couples peace of mind, a premium service is offered throughout the cake planning journey. My business focus is on weddings and I take on a very limited number of wedding cake commissions – no squeezing a big-day bake in-between loads of birthday cake orders. I use quality ingredients and I don't cut corners anywhere. My couples appreciate this dedication and commitment and know that they don't need to worry about their cake. Every touchpoint is personal and special, I'm able to spend a lot of time getting the detail just right – I truly want every couple to have the wedding cake of their dreams.
The majority of my couples opt for a bespoke design which leans towards contemporary sharp edges with florals. They also go for different flavours for each tier – carrot cake is the most popular flavour, although quite a few also offer a vanilla option for less adventurous guests and I'm always happy to discuss flavour options that aren't on my list.
I'm a people person and I love meeting all the couples, finding out about how they met their wedding plans and dreams. I'm a true romantic at heart and I love everything about weddings. One of my favourite parts of the job is turning a sketch on paper into a real cake and seeing the couple's delight on their wedding day.
Take advantage of an in-person consultation and taste the cake as it has to taste as phenomenal as it looks. While you're at the consultation, be sure to look at the cake dummies on display and check out the details. For example, if you want sugar florals to feature on your cake, make sure that your cake designer can make decent ones.
