Michelle established La Belle Cake Company back in 2006 and it is now run by both Michelle and her husband Daniel who joined the company full-time in 2015 . Daniel bakes and manages behind the scenes whilst Michelle is much more about creating all the prettiness with her beautifully skilled sugar crafting.
I met Michelle some years back at the prestigious wedding venue Luton Hoo Hotel where we are both recommended suppliers. I can honestly say Michelle is always professional, hardworking, caring and fun and her cakes are delicious as well!
La Belle, make bespoke delicious cakes for all occasions and are luxury wedding cake specialists plus they have also had many celebrity clients along the way which is always nice to know!
Shelley Shulman Q&A:
What advice would you give to couples currently searching for a Cake Maker?
When looking for a cake maker, look for one that matches your style. Do they types of cake they make look like style of cake you would want at your wedding. And make sure you get the opportunity to try some cake too! After all a cake need to taste as good as it looks!
How far in advance should a couple book you?
We recommend couples book at least 12 months in advance. Whilst we don’t have to confirm an exact design at the point, booking early ensures you get the suppliers you want for your big day.
What is your top tip for Brides?
My top tip for brides is to remember the phrase 'two many cooks spoil the broth’. Whilst it is lovely that friends and family want to be involved, sometimes their well meaning opinions can get overwhelming and your wishes can get lost. We limit the amount of people who attend our consultations so that our focus remains 100% on the couple and what they want.
Why do you love working in the wedding industry?
It may be a cliche but it is wonderful to be surrounded by love! It is such a happy industry to work in and it is a true honour and privilege to be included in one of the biggest days in a persons life!
Describe your style?
We create, what we would describe as 'clean and fresh' wedding cakes. Modern and contemporary with beautiful detailing and a flourish of sugar flowers.
Why should a couple choose you?
The wedding cake is one of the most photographed parts of the wedding day. In fact it’s one of the only parts of your ‘wedding decor’ you actually ‘pose’ with so it is so important it is perfect. We work closely with all our couples to make sure they have the perfect wedding cake for the picture perfect cake cutting moment.
If you have a vision for your dream wedding cake La Belle Cake company can turn it from your dream into reality.
