About me

Nina Y K cake designer, Meadowsweet Cakes

Passionate about art, beauty, and craftsmanship, I launched Meadowsweet Cakes: a luxury brand bringing an additional element of refinement to UK and destination weddings.

My fascination with art and fashion started at a young age, when I had professional training at my aunt’s bridal gown studio. Nothing made me happier than being surrounded by all the glamorous fabrics and intricate lace swatches. My obsession with wedding fashion combined with my early love of baking resulted in a strong desire to create a style-led brand, crafting cakes that look -and taste- extraordinary. 

In a very short time, I managed to build an excellent reputation within the wedding industry, winning Best Cake Designer in the Four Counties Wedding Awards 2017, Highly Commended Cake Designer in 2018, in addition to attaining several awards at Cake International over the years, and being a preferred supplier at some of the UK's top wedding venues.

My work has been featured in numerous publications and wedding blogs around the world, and for an emerging artist, I couldn't be happier with how my brand is perceived. I have a strong passion for creating delicate, realistic looking sugar flowers and foliage, making cakes look even more glamorous and unique.

On a personal level, I am a mum of two fabulous little boys, who constantly cheer me on and lend an inquisitive ear to my cake chatter.

Meadowsweet Cakes, the brand: I put a lot of thought into naming our company. “Meadowsweet” is a wild herb that has a subtle sweet vanilla flavour - and what can be a better name than something natural, sweet and subtle? I care deeply about sourcing the most natural ingredients I can get, and use free range/organic ingredients where possible. It's one of the things that I feel very strongly about.

Meadowsweet Cakes, the Philosophy: Is to provide high quality products, paying attention to the smallest of details, even if it means spending many extra hours working on a single cake, I know it's worth it in the end. I pride myself for always giving my customers more than they expect, and I get incredible feedback as a reward.

Our Location: Our private studio is based in an excellent location in Hertfordshire, UK, less than an hour’s drive from London and 15 minutes drive to both Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, making us in close proximity to most wedding venues across the Four Counties and London.

I can’t wait to hear from you and be part of your special occasion!
