As you have probably seen, my cake smash sessions are a great way for families to celebrate their child reaching that all important first birthday. I want to offer my client a special experience and that means the cakes I offer need to be perfect. Yes they're being smashed but they still need to look great and taste amazing too. I need a cake maker that I can rely on and also one that understands what I need and what my clients want. Cue Cat Wilson of Cats Creations, a fellow business owner Mummy that makes stunning, yummy cakes!
Everyone has seen the amazing cupcakes that she makes me right?! They are simply stunning and made to perfection BUT there is so much more to Cats Creations than the large buttercream cakes that you see on my page. I decided to ask Cat to tell me a little more about her and her business to give you all a little more insight into the service she provides.
To me what she creates, are truly works of art.
How long have you been a cake maker?
I've been making cakes for over 3 years now, it started as a hobby while I had my first daughter. Friends and family would ask me to make cupcakes/cakes for them. I decided to create a Facebook page to post all my pictures and keep them together, this soon expanded at a rapid pace so I decided to register my hobby to a professional cake maker and haven't looked back!!!
What type of cakes do you make?
I'll create any cake you desire, celebration cake, christening, wedding, hen do, baby shower or it could simply be that you would like a cake for a festive period such as Christmas or Easter.
Do you have a favourite?
My favourite cakes I create have to be girlie cakes like the Unicorn cake, but also love making Star Wars and minion cakes too!!!
What's the craziest cake you have made?
It has to be a wedding cake with The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Back to the future, Ghost busters and Teenage ninja turtles on it, it was so much fun to make and I loved seeing it all together at the venue!!! One of my favourite wedding cakes.
How many cake do you make per month?
I make around 25-35 cakes a month! I really do love my job!
How do you juggle your business with being a yummy mummy?
It was hard when I first started out as I would only work in the evenings when my girls were in bed, now they are at school it's so much easier, all the late nights and working weekends has really paid off!
So, if you haven't done already, get on her Facebook page here, like her page and next time you have that special occasion, get in touch with Cat. You will not be disappointed.
