Established in 2011 and located in Gateshead, The Designer Cake Company specialises in creating bespoke wedding and celebration cakes for clients across the UK. Isabelle Bambridge, who has a rich pedigree of artistic skill sets under her belt including fashion design and fashion marketing, is the driving force behind this highly acclaimed enterprise.
It’s hard to believe that this uber talented lady stumbled upon cake making pretty much by accident. After making a birthday cake for her partner’s children, Isabelle discovered that she had a real flair for designing and creating cakes and began teaching herself the more advanced techniques of cake making. Isabelle soon found that there was a demand for her talent amongst friends, family and soon after the public craved for her creations.
Now, with a string of awards including Best New Exhibitor at the UK Wedding Show and a large cliental base which includes golfer Lee Westwood and Mulberry UK, The Designer Cake Company has since gained huge credibility reinforced by a 55,000 strong Facebook following.
“It wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered I had a talent for designing and making cakes”
I have to admit that whilst browsing through the gallery page of the Designer Cake Company’s amazing website, I was mesmerized by their previous creations. As I marvelled at the portfolio of stunning wedding and celebration creations, I found myself making statements like “I can’t believe these are actually cakes.” And “That must have taken absolutely ages to make.”
It’s quite simple; this lady is a perfectionist, a true artisan who adds gusto and most importantly ‘love’ to each and every one of her magnificent creations. These edible masterpieces aren’t just pretty, they also happen to be lip smackingly delicious and all baked from scratch, no packet mixes or pre-prepared ingredients will do. As a matter of standard all of their cakes are made using the highest quality ingredients including organic flour, real butter, free range eggs, Madagascan bourbon vanilla and rich Belgian chocolate. As for flavours, customers are given a plethora of choice from a vast flavour list which includes-Classic Vanilla, Zesty Lemon, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Orange and Black Forest.
“This lady is a perfectionist, a true artisan…”
Isabelle offers a personal consultation service and works closely with wedding couples in order to design and create the cake of their dreams. This busy lady also writes tutorials on how she makes certain cakes and even has her own Cake Master Class course in the pipeline.
Such is the demand for these fabulous cakes, The Designer Cake Company advise customers to book up several months in advance for celebration cakes as they sadly have to disappointed people who make short notice enquiries.
However, I absolutely guarantee that these cakes are definitely worth the wait.
