Special events are the sweet moments of our life so choosing a cake that you can proudly display throughout the party will make it even more memorable. And what can be better when the taste matches the looks, right?
Personally, the cake is the first thing I organise when planning my family celebrations - I think a beautiful cake helps to set the tone for the whole event.
I often ask my clients to show me what kind of cake they chose for marking their milestones. It helps to understand their vision better and I can then match the style and colours of the balloon decor so everything comes together perfectly on the day.
Having decorated many celebrations, I get asked for recommendations for the best bakers In Glasgow so here are my top 5 cake designers for your next event:
Cake Days A Week
When I saw this giant Teddy Bear cake at one of the events I had been hired to decorate, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a true work of art in its own right and nothing like I had seen before. Talk about the most Instagramable cake!
An incredibly talented baker and cake designer Christie behind the Cake Days A Week will create the most wonderful, one-of-a-kind cake for your event. Each of her designs is unique and I just love watching how her hand-sketched designs turn into masterpieces, which she shares on her social media. And I’m becoming her no1 fan!
Cherry Blossom Designer Cakes
Another very talented award-winning cake designer I had the pleasure of recommending to my clients is Stephanie from Cherry Blossom Designer Cakes.
I have seen several of the cakes designed by Stephanie and let me tell you, the cakes' designs and finish were just flawless. And these were birthday cakes for children! Her bespoke wedding cakes definitely stand out with exceptional artistry.
Steph specialises in creating bespoke fondant wedding and celebration cakes & stunning handmade sugar flowers. So if you are looking for a show-stopper of a cake you can find one here.
I first encountered Margarita, the owner of Milo Bakes and the artisans behind the most delicious (and pretty!) macarons and cakes, on Instagram. I have instantly fallen in love with what I’ve seen on her page so I had to visit their shop in the Southside of Glasgow.
And oh my goodness, their macarons are to die for! Incredibly rich and delicious, they are a perfect addition to any party. Friendly tip: have them individually wrapped for the best party favours ever!
Milo Bakes also specialises in speciality mouse cakes and french pastries becoming a one-stop shop for all your sweet party needs.
Liggy's Cake Co
Based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Liggy's Cakes has a whole team of incredibly talented bakers. I bumped into them several months ago at the Scottish Wedding Show and believe me, it’s impossible not to notice their stunning creations!
They also have an online cake shop with a wide range of sweet choices, from exquisite wedding and celebration cakes to the prettiest cupcakes and sweet treat tables to leave you and your guests with a memorable tasty experience.
ECCASION Cake Design
I wouldn’t trust my cake pops to anyone else in Glasgow - having tried several suppliers I can assure you Lisa is the best out there. But her offering doesn’t stop with just incredible cake pops!
