Welcome to Fondant Cake Design

About Us

Relocating to our new studio based in Newtonhill Feb 2019. Collection and delivery service will be available

I create and design on trend wedding cakes for couples in Aberdeen and surrounding areas.

With a flair for contemporary design, based on trend-led colour palettes, couture inspired textures and sugar flowers, I bring contemporary elegance to your wedding. I regularly take inspiration from all things 'weddings' from around the world to bring freshness to my work and ensure your cake really stands out from the crowd.

Working closely with you, I bring your ideas to life with a creative eye and over a decade of professional expertise. I specialise in bespoke designs so you’re not tied to pre-set designs and you can experience the true luxury of having exactly what you want.

From the moment you first get in touch, to delivery on your wedding day, I do everything myself so that I have full control over every detail. I don’t make lots of cakes because honestly, I’d rather make a few  incredible cakes than lots of average ones! This means that you benefit from the kind of exceptional quality that you only get with a bespoke service along with a menu full of delicious flavours to ensure your cake tastes as good as it looks. 


How It All Began

My passion for cake design began when, after a few years of working in a high end Aberdeen restaurant as a pastry chef, I received a request from a customer for a birthday cake to be created. 

Having never attempted making a birthday cake before I was excited for the new challenge... I instantly fell in love with the whole process from start to finish.

I embraced my love of making cakes and threw myself into a new career. Accepting a job in a cake shop in Aberdeen, I trained in new skills and worked hard to learn my craft and after 5 years took the big step to start my own cake business.

Since then, I’ve spent 7 years refining my decorating style and flavour profiles. Each of my wedding cake designs has an undeniably romantic feel, blended with soft colours and a modern edge. It’s also incredibly important to me that the flavours are just as delightful as the outside, My freshly baked cake combinations such as coconut and fresh lime zest, white chocolate and raspberry , banana and peanut butter are some of the mouth-watering options available.

As the business evolves along with my love for all things weddings, I am always striving for new fresh ideas that I can use my creative expertise on, such as our beautifully designed dessert tables.


Alongside making cakes, I have recently launched my new business called The Bespoke Backdrop Company. 

I offer a beautiful handcrafted bespoke backdrop service for hire including Flower Walls, Cherry Blossom Trees & Unique Archway Designs which makes your wedding or special event stand out from the crowd. 

This company’s new website will be launched soon - www.thebespokebackdrop company.co.uk
