In this evening's MEET THE WEDDING SUPPLIER post we are delighted to introduce you to Naomi Campbell who bakes wedding cakes that are a treat to the eyes and the palette! Cakes by Naomi bake unique, delicious, bespoke wedding and celebration cakes for any occasion, handmade to your requirements. With macarons, brownies and traybakes as well as celebration cakes, Naomi has been baking and delighting customers for many years. We are delighted that she will be exhibiting at The Vintage & Handmade Wedding Fair on Saturday 6th May, and she has also donated a fantastic prize for the day. This week we caught up with Naomi for a chat about weddings and cakes, so why not make yourself a cup of tea and find out what goes on behind the scenes in her creative kitchen!
So Naomi, tell us a bit about your background and how your cake business started?
I've always loved baking and people have always loved eating it! I have a large family of 5 children ranging from 17 yrs to 6yrs, and they are my inspiration. I discovered my love and natural talent for cake designing / decoration by making many Celebration cakes for family and friends, and I then went on to complete the ABC level 2 cake decoration course in which I passed all units with merits. I am fully registered with Belfast council and have a food hygiene rating of 5 ( scores of the doors 5) and am fully insured.
What services do you offer to brides and grooms?
I offer a friendly and personal service to all my clients. I work from home and use only the highest quality ingredients to ensure that your cake tastes divine. They are freshly baked to order and I offer an extensive range of flavours to suit every taste and am happy to accommodate any special requests. My champagne and strawberry cake is always popular for weddings and I can even turn your favourite cocktail into cake!
Do you offer a range of styles?
I offer wedding cake consultations where we can discuss the bride and grooms requirements and I then design the bespoke wedding cake of their dreams tailor made for their wedding, which can be anything from traditional, vintage, or sophisticated, to a unique and quirky novelty cake!
I also offer a delivery and set up service locally or across Ireland to ensure your day is perfect. I can also supply cupcakes, macarons, biscotti and salted caramel chocolates and truffles all perfect for wedding favours.
Do you have any tips for brides and grooms?
My recommendations to brides and grooms would be to book their cake early to guarantee availability. The design can then be decided on once they have decided on a style, theme or colour scheme for their wedding. When consulting with couples I look at all aspects of their wedding from their venue, dresses, suits, colour schemes, decorations and personalities so that they get the perfect wedding cake design to suit them.
