Meet Katie

I grew up on our family farm in south Lincolnshire, happily developing my artistic streak and a total adoration for cakes and all things sweet. 

Despite my creativity and early love of baking, I took the formal academic path and gained a Bsc Hons in Food Science, which led me to a career as a Food Technologist (in the breakfast cereal industry). I satisfied my yearning for creativity by working as a pastry chef in the evenings, from which I realized that a life revolving around cakes was my true destiny.  So, 10 years ago I took the plunge, and swapped a bowl of cereal for a piping bag, and returned to our farm to set up my studio in a converted barn. I haven’t looked back since…

I began my career being personally trained by Dawn Blunden, the Royal wedding cake maker responsible for the Duke & Duchess of Cornwall’s wedding cake. I’ve applied my own modern style to traditional techniques, and never stopped learning, so that combined with my meticulous approach to detail we remain at the pinnacle of our profession.

“Very professional, fabulous ideas and extremely creative”

We were so thrilled with our wedding cake, it was just how we imagined, perfect in every way. The level of detail was remarkable, and it looked beautiful. The sponge was simply delicious, so light and moist. Couture Cakes were a joy to work with, very professional, fabulous ideas and extremely creative….thank you so much!”

“It was the best cake they have ever tasted!”

A massive Thank you! The cake looked out of this world and tasted magnificent! I had so many comments, people said it was the best cake they have ever tasted! The amaretto layer went down especially well. We have only one slice left I think that says it all!!!! Thanks again.
