There’s an old culinary proverb, which we're sure you’ve heard before; ‘you first eat with your eyes’. We believe that not only should your cake look stunning, but that it should taste delectable, too. To achieve this requires a lot of care: we take time to source the finest, organic and fair trade ingredients available, and we team those with meticulous attention to detail in the design and decoration, and together they create a perfect marriage of delicious flavours and award-winning style.
We're extremely passionate about what we do; from the initial contact to the cake delivery, a professional, personal and friendly service is what you can expect from us at Apple Tree Cake Design.
By limiting the number of commissions we take on in a week to only 2 cakes, and often only one if it's very detailed, this allows us to take our time and enjoy the process as sugar art is a labour of love. Because of this though, dates do get booked up far in advance, so don't leave it too late to contact us about reserving yours.
With a Swiss Master Baker in the family, Rebecca was exposed to the wonderful world of baking at very early age and it soon became a passion of her own. Her love of sugar craft started at boarding school when her cookery teacher, Mrs Brooking, taught her how to make hellebores (the Christmas Rose) and royal icing piping to decorate the Christmas cake she was working on at the age of 14... and so her love affair with it began. Being a foodie and an animal-lover, provenance and animal welfare is very important to her, hence only the best ingredients will do from suppliers who care.
We're based from home in our beautiful, state-of-the-art kitchen in Tiptree, Essex, and we deliver to Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Kent and London. We offer a consultation service for wedding cake orders, so that you can be sure of what to expect from us, and we know exactly what we're designing in order to take the time and care that’s needed to create your dream cake.
We have been blessed with creating wedding cakes for many happy couples who have kindly written some lovely things about us... so you don't need to take our word for it; just read what they have to say on our 'kind words' page. It's thanks to the votes from our clients that we were delighted to win the 'Best Wedding Cake Designer' award for the East of England at The Wedding Industry Awards.
