Today’s supplier is a total beaut. Helen, founder of Cottonwood Bakery, makes the most gorgeous, scrumptious, darling cakes. These cakes aren’t your usual wedding cakes – Helen is always on the lookout for inspiration and is keen to try new recipes and ideas, yet remain faithful to her simple, natural approach. Using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients as well. We are in love!

What inspired you to start your business?

I am obsessed with cake; design, new techniques and flavours. I love my job and am so lucky to have started a business doing something I am so passionate about.

How are you different from any other similar suppliers?

My cakes are different in their design because I use modern design ideas that are unlike most other wedding suppliers. For example, edible watercolour paints, fresh & wafer flowers and bright colours. I also bake all the cakes myself and offer a huge range of flavours to couples.

What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?

Being such an important part of the wedding day is something I love and I take it very seriously. Whether it’s my 5th or 105th cake, I treat each one with as much care and attention.
