Where it all Began: From initially finding her love of baking in her family kitchen, helping her mum make fairy cakes and flapjacks, Hannah went on to working in a bakery where she found her passion was to create bespoke wedding and occasion cakes.
After continuing her baking on the other side of the globe in Tanzania, on Hannah’s return she went to London and studied at Le Cordon Bleu, graduating with a patisserie Diploma.
Almost everything that goes into my baked goods, come from botanical products, whether it’s chocolate or fruit, nuts or spices, I also love to use a lot of beautiful flowers and foliage – fresh, dried and pressed.
Even the cows and chickens who kindly produce the eggs, milk and butter, all depend on the grain, wheat, grass and even seaweed.
I then progressed to work in a couple of different Michelin-star restaurants as a patisserie chef, making anything and everything, from lemon curd tarts to sumptuous soufflés.
The Image: You truly won’t find anything quite like Botanical Cakes. Tastefully designed with chocolate spheres, ruffles made from wafer and rice paper and the use of both dried and fresh flowers, each unique, bohemian style cake is crafted with love and will no doubt make a statement on your whimsical wedding.
Boasting plenty of mediums for you to choose from, whether it's beautiful buttercream or a fresh fondant, the options are endless when it comes to bringing your vision to life.
Or, for something a little more daringly different, why not wow your guests and choose ‘gap’ cake, a way of creating height and bringing character and style, all without the extra cake – a one-of-a-kind design for sure!
