Member Focus – Amelie's Kitchen
I would like to introduce you to Amelie’s Kitchen, a cake maker based in Suffolk. Helen individually designs, creates sugar flowers and adornments, bakes, finishes and delivers each and every wedding cake so you can be sure that you are getting that unique personal touch when you order an Amelie’s Kitchen wedding cake.
Over to you Helen, tell us about yourself….
How did it all start?
If you had told me ten years ago that I would be a wedding cake designer I would have laughed. I had always enjoyed baking for family and friends, I was the one that always took cakes into work, then when a work colleague asked me to make their daughter’s first birthday cake I started to seriously look into cake decorating techniques on you tube. I quickly caught the bug and found that I was more drawn to sugar floristry than novelty cakes and the rest is history!
Do you have a favourite venue?
How would clients describe you?
Creative and calm!
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
I admire anyone who works in the wedding industry and who is successful, it can be incredibly tough but so rewarding.
