Claire’s Sweet Temptations designs and makes bespoke wedding cakes. I make all the cakes myself from scratch, and I also make all the sugar flowers and decorations.
Claire’s Sweet Temptations started as many small businesses do – almost by accident. Making cakes for friends and family led to a local diner asking me to make cakes for them, and a diner customer then asked if I did wedding cakes. I said yes, and the business started from there.
No. I left school and trained in horticulture, and I then decided to do a degree in English Literature (as you do.) But I’ve always been artistic, and I always wanted a job that allowed for creativity.
