Tell us about your business, and what makes you uniquely different?

We are an award winning family-run business that specializes in buttercream icing.

How did you get started?

We’ve both baked since we were kids but the cake part started with Pam, who would make her younger cousin’s birthday cakes. She’d ask Amanda what she would like for her cake that year and the answer was usually whatever Disney movie had come out.


What’s the most difficult/interesting hurdle you’ve had to come across in helping plan a wedding?

Some of the hardest situations are when you have a bride calling a week or two prior to her wedding saying she needs a cake because her friend/family member, who was going to make it, now says they can’t. It’s a difficult situation all around and one the bride can certainly do without. We have always found a way to fit her into our schedule so she has a great looking and delicious cake for her wedding.

How has this business changed you?

It’s allowed us both to use and develop our creative sides. We also feel very fortunate to be in the wedding business as we’re always dealing with happy people.


Who/what inspires you?

That’s easy. Our couples. It’s important to us that we do our best work for each and every couple and that starts with our first contact, whether that be at a bridal show, email or phone call. We work to understand their vision and create a cake that’s perfect for them. We get great satisfaction from delivering a cake that they and their guests love!

What should attendees expect from you at the BridesMade Pop-Up Party?

We’ll be presenting a small selection of designs along with some fantastic samples in flavours such as chocolate hazelnut and pina colada. It’s also a great opportunity to have a short discussion about your wedding and how we can create a cake that suits your theme, style and budget. We look forward to seeing you at the show!

Okay, we have to admit - picking pictures was difficult... Look how beautiful - and delicious - all of these cakes look!!! Be sure to register for your Pop-Up Party tickets today, and come meet the team behind these masterpieces.
