Rebecca founded Apple Tree Cake Design in 2012. She’s based in Tiptree, Essex, where she lives with her husband and their two beautiful (but bonkers!) cocker spaniels.
Specialising in sugar flowers, Rebecca combines beautifully intricate designs with classical and contemporary finishes. The emphasis is as much on the decoration as the cake within; she ensures she uses only the finest ingredients for her clients’ cakes, resulting in countless rave reviews, many of them online. Over to Rebecca…
“I love creative baking and I love weddings. It really is that simple. With a Swiss Master Baker in the family, I was exposed to the wonderful world of baking at an early age and so my love affair with it began.”
“Sugar flowers are my favourite things to make. Particular favourites at the moment are the David Austin style roses, hydrangeas and peonies. Each cake I make is bespoke and I take so many things into consideration for the design process: my clients’ colour scheme, their venue, the style of their wedding. It’s so much fun to design and create each cake.”
Her creativity doesn’t stop at cakes; “When I’m not busy in the kitchen, I like to paint with watercolours, potter in the garden, and sew. I have a love of ceramics too, and I used to have a pottery studio. Long dog walks with my husband help me wind down, and we try to get away to the North Norfolk coast for a long holiday every year out of wedding season.”
