As always on our travels at wedding Fayres we meet some amazing and talented people, recently we met Sweet Tiers Cakes which is owned and run by Hester Gardner, they specialise in Bespoke Romantic style Wedding Cakes.

Hester is so passionate about the quality of her cakes and I have huge admiration not only for the wonderful styles but for her passion to make at all her sponge cakes lovingly at home in her special cake kitchen, using the finest ingredients. Hester insists ” We always use real butter, locally sourced free range eggs and fair-trade products whenever possible. Our cakes when iced are a minimum of 4inches high and come in sumptuous flavours such as Lemon sponge cake layered with lemon curd and vanilla buttercream, Chocolate cake infused with Baileys and layered with Bailey’s buttercream and Spiced Carrot and Hazelnut cake layered with orange buttercream.”

Hester is a self taught cake designer who finds inspiration through all aspects of weddings, from beautiful wedding gowns by designers such as Stephanie Allin and Sassi Holford, to wedding flowers, jewellery and venue decoration. The designs capture the essence of your wedding day with a mixture of romance, elegance and often with a country garden feel. All of the sugarflower and decorations are handmade and coloured by Hester, this way the sugarflowers can be colour matched exactly to your bouquet, should you wish.

Hester can provide tiered wedding cakes, beautiful cupcakes with vintage stands, and mini cakes. We are based in Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire.

The funny thing is that I am not a cake eating girl but I managed to eat six slices last week when Hester came to one of our Accessory parties, so light and just gorgeous. I seriously wish I had met Hester in 2009 as she would definitely have made my wedding cake. – infact I have been racking my brains for an excuse to order one and I just got it. Oxford store will be 1 year old in May – Best I call Hester……………… Tel: 01296 427673
