We love all things cake at Ellie Sanderson; chocolate, carrot, coffee, fruit….it’s making us peckish just thinking about it! As you can imagine we also love wedding cakes! Gone are the days of standard fruit cakes with a layer of white icing, your wedding cake can be the centerpiece for your whole reception, incorporating your colours, theme and venue’s style. The lovely Claire and Kirsty at Poshpud know exactly how to create gorgeous cakes that are not only pieces of art in their own right, but delicious to boot; and we can vouch for that having tasted a few pieces ourselves….alright we may have tasted a lot!
Based in South East Buckinghamshire, sisters Claire and Kirsty have combined their baking skills with a creative passion and experience in Graphic Design, to follow their dream of creating exceptionally beautiful couture cakes.
Poshpud specialise in bespoke wedding cakes by working with brides and grooms to create an edible piece of art. Starting with a one to one tasting consultation they create computer visuals and sketches for their clients, to help brides and grooms envision the end product. They also offer predesigned cakes that can be tailored to suit any colour scheme.
We caught up with Claire and Kirsty to ask them some questions in between mixing and icing of course.
Why do you do what you do? What motivates you?
We do it because we truly love it. We think as successful cake makers you need to have the passion for what you do. The hours are extremely long but it is so rewarding when you see your clients face when they see what you have created for them. It also fits our lifestyle as mums and is something we enjoy being able to do as a family business.
What inspires your designs?
Our clients, brides and grooms tend to inspire us the most.
Although everything in our daily lives give us inspiration as cake designers. Anything from fashion, nature and architecture. We love to experiment with new elements and finding inspiration from the things underneath your nose can sometimes be the best.
Being part of such a special event, we take the utmost pride in our work to ensure we make the bride and grooms visions and dreams come to life in the most beautiful way possible. With each cake we bake, Poshpud always add that special ingredient – the uniqueness of your own love story.
