What is the best favour (bonbonniere) you have seen at a wedding?
I am a lover of all wedding favours. I do however love a petite mini wedding cake or cookie stack that replicates the main wedding cake. This is a common trend happening these days and I have a lot of clients asking for this. However, if I was to hang up my spatula on this notion – I do love mini succulent or seedlings in vases. I think it is a great gift of – as they say, LOVE.
What is your favourite current wedding trend?
I work alongside the mothership – Top Cat Catering. Together we have created a magnificent venue with outstanding scenery of the encapsulating South Maroubra Beach and Headland. I feel that picking a great venue with a awesome outlook speaks for itself. Brides continually attempt to replicate visions that they see online and on Pinterest. However, trends begin from the moment a guest walks into a venue which has that WOW Factor!
Your Favourite Quote?
A quote that alway resonates with me – “It isn’t the food (cake) on the table that truly matters, it is the moments in life that food represent, bringing a sense of togetherness”
What do you love about your job?
I do absolutely love my job. I began as a young chef in the family business and have always carried my passion for food/pastisserie forward. Growing up in a well known catering company allowed me to understand a ‘wedding’! Looking at the bigger picture, I am a people pleaser! I love to create smiles on people’s faces and what wakes me up in the morning and gets me into the workshop is envisioning seeing my clients being happy on their big day and creating laughable moments of friendship with them.
Are you an Early Bird or a Night Owl?
Sleeping Patterns, What are they? The bridal industry tends to consume most of my time. I am a lover of the afternoon nap, however when push comes to shove, turning out a wedding cake can take me up to twenty seven hours. What some would call, a sleepless night!
