Christmas Treats for 13th December – The Cake Whisk

<!–[if !mso]> st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Who is The Cake Whisk?
I am a cake designer based at home in Rochdale, covering most of the North West. I have been making cakes for getting on 30 years, initially going to college. It’s important for me to keep up to date, so I continue to develop new skills and ideas all the time. I went to the International Cake show at the NEC a few weeks ago and it was so inspiring. And of course my lovely clients keep things fresh with new and sometimes very challenging design requests. I love meeting with my couples and taking their cake design ideas through to completion – they almost feel like family.

What types of cakes do you offer?
I specialise in fine detail on wedding cakes, especially bringing detail from the brides dress or the wedding stationery onto the cake. I try to have something in the design that can be safely removed from the cake and kept as a keepsake afterwards. Equally I love making wedding cakes that are stunning in their simplicity – which means that the cake has to be flawless to achieve impact.
What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement was just a few weeks ago when 3 of my wedding cakes were published in ‘Wedding Cakes – A Design Source” it was so lovely for me to get that level of recognition for my work. Especially as just over a year ago, I suffered a spinal injury and was paralysed for several months. I am well again, and walking and making gorgeous cakes for gorgeous people, so that has been a bit of an achievement too.
What do you have available for Christmas?
I have just launched my Christmas range: Christmas puddings in varying sizes, Christmas cookies, Christmas Cookie trees and some individual Christmas cakes. They will be on the website and on Facebook too.
How can people contact you?
People can contact me through the website: or email:
Telephone: 07975 595915
Facebook: The Cake Whisk
I also take part in several wedding fairs throughout the year – details are posted on my website and Facebook.
What do you love about Christmas?
I love making Christmas dinner for all of my family – sitting down and just being together (all 4 generations!) and enjoying our grandchildren’s enjoyment.
My unsung hero in all of this is Mr Cake Whisk – without him, none of this would be able to happen, so a very special Thank You to Brian.
