Supplier of the Month: Cakes by Petula

We first met Petula at The Rustic wedding fair, and we just knew she was our brides type of wedding supplier, with her stunning cakes and friendly smile. If you were able to make our Kelsey Rose event, you would have had the chance to test her scummy cakes. So let see what our Supplier of the Month: Cakes by Petula has to offer you.

Tell us about you and your business

So I'm Petula and I run Cakes by Petula ... I'm based in beautiful Whitstable, have 2 gorgeous grown up children and adore living by the sea. I absolutely adore the business I have created and offer a very bespoke and personal service to create a stunning show-piece for your wedding day.

What made you decide to start Cakes by Petula

I've always been a little bit of a baker but when my kids started having birthday parties I got in to creating celebrations cakes …then people around me were like you need to offer this out to the public. So once my son started school I launched Cakes by Petula ... through the years I've developed my style and now mostly concentrate on stunning Wedding Cakes and Dessert Tables.

What’s been your favourite wedding so far and why

I don't actually have a favourite as such as each Wedding Cake is so individual…but one that stands out was for a Cake and Dessert Table that I created last year at Crescent Turner Whitstable. For various reason, the Bride had a medical emergency 2 days prior to her wedding day, and it literally meant no one knew if the wedding was actually going to take place. But the bride was determined that she would do everything in her power to get married. So every supplier pulled together and shifted the entire day events into a few hours at the end of the day, so the couple could actually get married. It was awesome team work, and the set-up I created was my best to date. It had edible flowers, bee themed (love bees), dessert board and all round just an emotional day.

What services do you offer?

So I offer a full bespoke Wedding Cake and Dessert Table packages. My key passion lies with Buttercream finished cakes, along with using either edible flowers or fresh flowers (which need to be food safe). Not everyone wants a full on 4 tiered cake, so I created an option for single tier cake and a full on treat board full of macarons, cupcakes, cookies, mini cakes etc and decorated to match a colour scheme. It looks so stunning, tastes amazing and gives a relaxed vibe to all things cake.

What can couples expect from you as apart of their wedding?

Couples can expect a very relaxed but professional approach to all things cake. I take the time to fully understand what vibe or theme a couple is going for and from there I am able to create something that fits seamlessly into their day.

And Finally what is the best way to get in touch?

The best to contact me is through my website by sending me an email. I will then double-check that your date is available, if it is, I will then arrange a chance for us to have a Zoom call or telephone call or in person chat and start the exciting journey of creating something super beautiful for your wedding day.
