Who are my cake loving clients? From commissions for Wedding cakes to special event cakes, patisserie desserts, handmade chocolates to wedding favours, I am fortunate to work with individuals and organisations who are discerning, creative and love their food. I’ve been asked to make cake and sweet treats in many styles, from a black gothic wedding cake to more traditional floral designs. Rich chocolate is a perennial favourite and I’ve made birthday cakes for many ages from a beautiful butterfly garden taken from the design brief of a creative 5 year old through to a multistory car park (for a grown up!).
So far my cakes have visited the Royal Bank of Scotland, Brewin Dolphin, Durrants Hotel, Marylebone London, Longueville Manor Hotel, Jersey and The Atlantic Hotel, Jersey, amongst other well known community, commercial and legal organisations. My brides are holding weddings in venues as diverse as the Euro Star platform, St Pancras, London, a rural barn in Norfolk, the splendid isolation of The Channel Island of Sark, and they chose a wonderful range of unique cake designs that are showcased here at Rebeccah May Cakes
My adventures with commercial clients commenced in 2010 when I was invited by the PR Agency Murray Wier Willats who represent Sanderson & Zoffany Fabrics (Sandersons celebrated their 150th Anniversary in February 2010) to provide sweet treats for the celebratory PR event. Murray Wier Willats and Sanderson & Zoffany liked my Christmas cup cakes so much they sent them as Christmas gifts to their business contacts as well as the Editors of luminary titles including World of Interiors, House and Garden, Good Housekeeping, Elle Decoration, Period Living, Homes & Gardens, Mail on Sunday You, The Telegraph Magazine, The Guardian Magazine.
So far my cakes have ventured to organisations as diverse as the The House of Lords and Barclays Bank, BBC Jersey Children in Need. Cakes have been commissioned from Singapore, the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, India and have travelled to their party destinations across the UK and Jersey, and Sark, and Guernsey and Europe, The USA.
I don’t just stop at cake (I defy anyone to just stop at cake!), I make patisserie desserts for intimiate dinner parties through to large scale events. Hand made sweets have disappeared fast at successful London gastro pubs and I’m well known for my Christmas cakes; traditional fruit, untraditional (think chocolate) and beautiful hand decorated cup cakes.
I offer a special thank you to those individuals who trust me so completely they order over the internet and have their cakes posted across continents and countries. My cakes don’t just stay in the UK, they have passports! My international cakes have travelled to The United States of America, Belgrade, Paris, Germany and Japan. With kitchens in the UK and The Channel Islands my cakes travel far and wide with their international sugary passports.
Other London clients included The General Manager of The Fox & Hounds, Latchmere Road, The General Manager of The Elephant on the Hill, Lavender Hill. My private clients are national and international individuals.
A heartfelt thank you is given to the mothers of Battersea and Clapham without whom I would not have started my business and whose children enabled me to make many gorgeous Peppa Pigs and alien fighting Ben 10′s!
