Emily started Happyhills Cakes 5 years ago – initially supplying cakes to high end restaurants and running a stall at Farmer’s Markets and more recently has been focusing on occasion & wedding cakes. She met chef Jade at the beginning of 2013 and found a likeminded ambition to create delicious and unusual cakes, they joined forces and the business has grown.
Based in Scotland’s Craft Town West Kilbride, delivery for the cakes is in good striking distance for Glasgow and surrounding areas, and the west coast. ‘We love being by the sea, it’s really beautiful where we live, but equally are inspired by great architecture and cityscapes and hope that we can reflect all of these influences through our designs’
Emily and Jade are especially interested in contemporary and unusual designs, ‘Nothing makes us more excited than making truly one-off cakes. We usually meet the bride and groom for a tasting and discuss their story and tastes, we love the outcome to be really individual and reflects who they are, it’s especially inspiring when they are looking to think outside the box a little’. The taste of the cakes is extremely important, the cakes are decadent and handmade and are always a talking point at weddings. ‘Lemon & poppyseed is always very zesty and light for the summer and white chocolate and fresh raspberry has been especially popular for at least one of the tiers in cakes this year, and we’re looking forward to some of the richer flavours such as black forest coming in to their own this winter’.
Loads of time goes into the cake, preparing a delicious and flawless base to the cakes before they are decorated is very important. From there almost anything is possible. ‘We love contemporary design and often look outwith the cake world for inspiration. Great colours and design can be found anywhere and there is so much inspiration to make cakes outside the normal constraints of a ‘wedding cake’’. Modelling in cake is another passion, special places, animals, hobbies can be represented as a classy sculpture rather than as a ‘novelty cake’. ‘This is an area not associated with weddings but there is scope to have a beautiful scene of a special place to the couple as a stunning wedding cake, or explore the idea of groom’s cakes to bring another dimension to the big day’.
The most important thing is making the cake perfect, inside and out.
