Ask any bride or groom what their favourite part of wedding planning is and you'll most likely hear them say "wedding cake tasting". How many times in your life do you get to sit down and sample a multitude of flavours until you have found the one?

Traditionally a wedding cake was made of rich fruit cake but modern brides and grooms are getting more and more daring with their wedding cake choices. When it comes to the flavour and design, husbands- and wives-to-be can practically choose whatever they want. It's their wedding after all.

Cakes By BabyBelles exhibited at the Hanbury Manor wedding fair for the first time ever last Sunday. I should add that it was also the first time ever exhibiting at any wedding fair and I have to say it was a really exciting experience!!

Having never been to a wedding fair as a wedding cake exhibitor, I was completely clueless about what I was doing! I felt a bit overwhelmed in deciding how to have a wonderful stand at the wedding fair, which would attract lots of brides and grooms in and around Hertfordshire. How do I make my table stand out? How do I get people to talk to me? A lot of questions ran through my adventurous mind!
I did a lot of research online and I made sure I was well prepared with enough marketing materials, vibrant cakes and yummy cake samples. I probably baked enough cake the night before to feed the all of Hertfordshire’s brides and grooms.

We had 4 flavours available to taste, which were cookies & cream, vanilla, salted caramel (everyone went crazy for this) and yummy chocolate. I loved receiving great feedback on the softness and moistness of our bespoke wedding cakes.

There were 3 different rooms and Cakes By BabyBelles was situated in the Assembly hall which in my opinion was the best room by far. The room was arranged in a way that it included a wide range of wedding suppliers, from florists to photographers, a photo booth, suit hire and even a live pianist was also in attendance. There was a lot to see, to say the least. Kudos to the team at Main Event Wedding shows and Marriot Hanbury Manor for executing such a well-coordinated event.

The event kicked off at around 11 am and things started to get busy quite quickly. People were coming in at intervals though so it wasn’t too bad for us exhibitors. The fair had such a warm feeling to it. The other exhibitors were very friendly and I found it very insightful talking to them about their past wedding fair experiences. Being a newbie myself, I was obviously all ears!

At one stage during the event, however, I wanted to stroll around the different tables and look at the pretty stuff rather than talk to potential customers about our bespoke wedding cakes and celebration cakes!

I was very lucky that I had a friend and my hubby who came to support me because, at various times, we were inundated with couples who wanted to speak with us about their luxury wedding cake. This was very exciting because it meant that half the job was done.

I also found myself getting excited for every bride-to-be that I met and talked to at the fair. Having been a bride-to-be myself, I could totally relate to all the stress and anxiety brought on by this long preparation for that most anticipated “walk up the aisle.” But I’m sure, it will all be worth it in the end. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my first wedding fair. I loved displaying my wedding cakes, lots of people tasting my cakes and bespoke cupcakes and receiving amazing feedback as well as talking to brides and grooms-to-be about how Cakes By BabyBelles could help their wedding day become extra special.​​​​​​​

When you are developing a brand it is difficult to know where to start. What is your USP? What is your business strategy? What are your core values?

All valid and vital questions. However, my personal experience is that when you have a real passion for something it is easier to focus on the process and let the results flow naturally, and for CakesbyBabyBelles that has definitely been the case. I have always had a passion for art and fashion but for a long time I struggled to find an outlet for my creativity. When I stumbled across baking and cake design it all seemed to fall into place. My creative side finally found a means by which to expresses itself and my academic side found an opportunity to create a unique and exciting business.


We are committed to providing a truly personal customer experience by including our clients in every stage of the process, from bouncing around initial ideas, to the development of a final concept. We take a creative approach to every wedding cake we produce and aim never to make the same cake twice. Every client is different, and for us that means a new opportunity to think up innovative and unique ideas, each time pushing the boundaries of traditional cake design.
