Your Initial Consultation

We offer a face-to-face consultation and tasting service to discuss your wedding cake in detail. During the meeting, you will try some of our signature flavours, review different ideas and styles, and discuss all the options available prior to concluding your final choices. The aim of the meeting is for you to leave with the confidence that you have not only booked your cake, but also that you have hired an experienced designer to bring your dream design to life.

Unless otherwise agreed, consultations are carried out at Hotel Novotel Stevenage in Hertfordshire, or Doubletree Hilton in Cambridge, where you can enjoy some delicious tea/coffee with our cake selection.

This service is complimentary, however a £20 deposit is required to book an appointment, that is then deducted from your overall cake balance. Alternatively, if you can’t make a face-to-face meeting, we offer a phone consultation followed by confirmation emails, and a cake sample box mailed to your address for your convenience.

To book your consultation session, please click here. You will receive a reply with my first available appointments. 

Our Online Planning Service: An alternative service we offer to busy couples, who find it difficult to make it to a face-to-face consultations. You will receive a box of samples through the post, and the rest of the wedding cake planning will be carried out over email/telephone conversations. The service you will get from us will be of the same standard as our regular consultation process, no less. To book this service please order your box from our shop here.

Our Flavours

I strongly believe that a wedding cake should taste as incredible as it looks; for that reason I've worked hard for years to craft the recipes we use today, to give your guests the most exquisite experience. You can have a different flavour in each tier to make the most out of our delicious menu. Check out our flavours here and make note of your favourites, and we'll arrange them according to what your guests would enjoy more. Special dietary requirements are catered for. 

Stand Hire

Your wedding cake deserves an elegant stand to elevate it and showcase its beauty. Most wedding venues supply the traditional silver, platter-style stand, which is not always the prettiest choice but they are known for their sturdiness.

I have been on a mission to find cake stands that combine strength and beauty, and I managed to build a collection of stands from across the world in different sizes and colours, that can comfortably carry the weight of a heavy wedding cake, and still look picture perfect. Our selection of imported, high quality stands will give your cake extra height and opulence.

The cost of hiring the stand is £20 plus a security deposit of £80.00, which is refunded once the stand is returned to us within 7 days, undamaged, and in the same condition in which it was delivered.

Delivery and Set up

We offer a delivery and set up service, to ensure that your cake is transported and handled correctly. Your cake will be delivered and fully set-up at your venue on the day of your wedding, at a time that is agreed between us. We will make sure that your cake is displayed correctly and safely. We always have a chat with a member of the venue explaining the structure of the cake, and leaving them with a full cutting and safety guide. Delivery cost will depend upon your venue location. We also offer great wedding insurance packages that include delivery and set-up. This will be discussed in full upon your request during our consultation.

Alternatively, you are welcome to collect your cake from our premises. You will be provided with a set-up guide to help you assemble the cake yourself.

Wedding Favours

We offer a selection of tasty wedding favours for your guests. Why not have beautiful iced biscuits, personalised with your guests names to be used as place cards? Or pretty boxed cupcakes or mini cakes made to match your wedding cake design? We love creating these little touches and your guests will appreciate the sweet treat! Prices start from £3 per guest, and you can either collect them ahead of your wedding or have us deliver them on the day.

Working with your Venue

Over the years we had the pleasure of repeatedly working with a variety of wonderful venues. We pride ourselves for our excellent communication skills when it comes to liaising with your venue/coordinator on delivery time, best place to set-up the cake, cutting advice and much more. We are proudly the recommended cake supplier in many of the leading wedding venues across the Four Counties.

Booking and Payment

Our wedding cakes are booked well in advance. Most of the time we're fully booked for months ahead, but it's always worth checking with us if we have an opening. The deposit is 50% of the cake fee, and is payable following our consultation. The full amount of money has to be paid no later than three weeks before the wedding. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for more details.

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!
