Roz, welcome to the Midlands Bridal Fair 2017 in KZN. We are so excited to introduce you and your business to our Brides- and Grooms-to-be!
Tell us a little bit about yourself
My company is like my other child, after my daughter, and I just love the energy that I get from it and how much it gives back to me in terms of fun and creativity.
Tell us about your business and what you offer
To me a wedding cake is far more than a mere sweet treat at a wedding, it is a centrepiece and should be a show stopper and the talk of the wedding. After the Bride it should ‘steal the show’ so to speak.
However it is a necessity that the cake TASTES as amazing as it LOOKS and we always tick both those boxes. Our recipes are tried and tested, decades-old family recipes that have been tweaked and adjusted to perfection.
Some people get excited when they start reading a new book – that is how I feel every time I start on a new cake, I can’t wait to get going with a new creation.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
I quite simply love cake design and cake art as well as the old fashioned wonderful calming simplicity of baking. I am also totally captivated by the magical atmosphere of the wedding business so the two combined together was love at first sight for me.
How long have you been doing this for?
As a family business almost two decades!
What do you love most about your job?
The smell of cake in the oven, the smooth feel of fondant, beautiful sugar flowers and sugar lace, and mostly, designing cakes with my Brides and seeing their excitement for the day and their beautiful cake.
What differentiates your business and makes you stand out? What are you known for?
Personal attention, individually designed cakes, focus on taste as well as aesthetics.
What can visitors to the Midlands Bridal Fair expect to see from you at the fair?
Lots of beautiful new cakes displaying 2017 trends. Tons of yummy tasters of our favourite cakes – our famous choc fudge included!
A great special offer exclusively for Midlands Bridal Fair visitors.
Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?
Too many happy clients to list all their lovely emails!
Tell us what inspires you. Any websites, people or companies that you follow?
I am absolutely crazy about Rosalind Miller Cakes and her designs are incredible. I page through her book every time I start a new project and I feel so excited and inspired from it.
Any upcoming wedding trend forecasts?
In terms of cakes 2017 is all about FLORAL and COLOUR – big time – and I am just loving that. Summer is HERE! So go wild with colour and make the cake a magical garden of flora. More is more!
What advice would you give Brides- and/or Grooms-to be?
Just have fun through the whole journey of planning and the day – fun, fun, fun! Don’t stress about any of it.
