My name is Kerry and I have had a love for baking since as long as I can remember.
Upon moving to Australia and starting my gorgeous family, I discovered a new audience for my baking, and developed my creative side. As more and more friends requested one of my custom cakes, I realised I could indulge my passion and bring my cake designing to a wider audience. Initially my business was started under the 'Wisteria Cakes' name, and it was raised and established in Australia in the suburbs of Melbourne. After much nurturing and the development of new, exciting cake making techniques, my home venture grew into a fun and thriving cake business. The same ethos and creativity has now relocated back to the UK and, having had a little break to settle family into their new and somewhat different surroundings, 'Wisteria Cakes' has been replaced and 'Sweet by Design' has been born.
Using many of the skills developed in the harsh Australian climate, my cakes are made with the best ingredients, with techniques that give a lasting and excellent finish. Most of my cakes are coated in a chocolate ganache prior to icing, which gives the cakes a firm, clean finish, and enables them to retain their moisture far beyond the traditional buttercream coating. This not only gives a delicious and decadent taste to your cake, but also ensures it stays perfect for much longer.
I am very excited to be fully starting this venture once more, and have missed the ability to unleash my creative talents. Please drop me a line via the contact page, and let me know how we can help make your next event a wonderful success.
