If you want the experience of choosing your wedding cake to be a breeze, and for it to look and taste like perfection, look no further than Dovey Cake Design. From bold five tiered masterpieces to rustic semi-naked bakes adorned with realistic sugar flowers, every cake is designed bespoke to each couple and their wedding.

With as much effort put into the design process as the baking and decorating of the final cake, your only worry will be if your cake steals the spotlight! There are over a dozen flavours to choose from, including traditional and exotic, which couples can taste before making their decisions. These bold, contemporary cakes have generations of love poured into them.

About

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of South Oxfordshire, the family owned Dovey Cake Design creates exceptional cakes for brides and grooms across the area. After a career in advertising, Clare knew she wanted to work with her hands and, like her grandmother, form spellbinding sugar flowers to top her bakes.

She uses the highest quality ingredients - some taken from her own allotment - to make the finished cakes taste as good as they look, with dozens of flavours to choose from. She spends hours designing your perfect cake, sketching out ideas and working with you to find something that speaks to you as a couple to give you a truly unique and personal bespoke wedding cake.

The Cakes

Dovey Cake Design's wedding cakes can be as short as one tier or as tall as five, or more! The height allows a great deal of creativity, and looks remarkably impressive bedecked with startlingly lifelike sugar flowers, marbling, drips, sequins, lacework, paint, or anything else Clare can dream up for you.

Some of the mouthwatering flavours include Pink Fizz, Tiramisu, Spiced Carrot and Raspberry Ripple. Take a look at the full list of flavours including filling on their menu. You can choose one flavour, or even choose a different flavour for each layer! And if the choice isn't enough, you can ask Clare to develop a bespoke flavour just for you incorporating all of your favourites.

Fruit cakes will be covered with fondant over a layer of marzipan. Meanwhile, sponge cakes will have a layer of white chocolate ganache under the fondant. Alternatively, you can order a semi-naked cake for a more rustic design.

Cakes will be presented on a board complete with a ribbon, complete with complimentary cake stand hire.

The Service

Clare's tried and tested service at Dovey Cake Design has left her with countless great reviews. You will be taken from initial consultation, through the much anticipated tasting, to briefing and design, and finally to delivery and set up, all with the utmost ease. Delivery up to 20 miles of Oxford will be included in your cake cost, otherwise contact to ask for a quote.

Tasting

The best part of choosing any cake is, of course, the tastings. Clare has made this process simple yet flexible.

If you live near South Oxfordshire, you may wish to book an in-person consultation to taste flavours and fillings over a cup of tea or coffee. Discuss your plans for your cake, including themes and colours, and start working on the design together. You can try up to four flavours, and the session is free for couples who have already paid their booking fee (or £20 if not).

If you live further away, you may prefer to take your time and taste the cakes in your own home. In this case, she can provide a luxury tasting box to be delivered to your address. The box will contain two servings of up to four flavours for you to choose between. This box is complimentary if you have already paid your booking fee, or else £15. You may have to wait a couple of weeks as Dovey Cake Design sends these boxes out once a month.

Design

Each and every cake that comes out of the Dovey Cake Design kitchen is bespoke. Whether meeting in person or online, Clare will get to know you and gradually piece together the perfect design for your wedding cake, taking the lead from your initial ideas. She will sketch out a range of concepts, including colours, decorations and additions, and ultimately you will get to choose your favourite to be brought to life.

Extras

Dessert Tables

If you have a sweet tooth, then can there be anything better than a dessert table? Dovey Cake Design can set up a feast of baked goods with your wedding cake at the centre, baking everything from cupcakes and macarons, to cake pops and other desserts. Every table will be different, so get in touch to find out what you could have at your wedding.

Classes

Aside from baking delicious and beautiful cakes, Clare also teaches classes to help others do the same! Based in The Cake College near Reading, she teaches classes in decoration and sugar craft, including making drip cakes and perfecting a tall tier cake. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be making someone else's wedding cake!

Reviews

  • Overjoyed Newlyweds

    Our cake was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. I couldn't recommend Dovey Cake Design highly enough.

  • Indebted Couple

    Clare was fantastic to work with. Very flexible with what we wanted. Our wedding cake was amazing in every way: the presentation, design, flavours and taste. My guests are still talking about how wonderful the cake was!

  • Joyful Groom

    Clare was absolutely amazing from start to finish. From the first phone call to arranging delivery to our wedding reception, she was perfect in every aspect. My wife and I loved the cake and would not hesitate in recommending Clare to all our friends and family. Thank you!

  • Grateful Couple

    A personal and relaxed experience, we felt confident that we were in good hands and we were not disappointed! Brilliant level of interaction and support through the entire process as well as an outstanding final product. We would recommend Dovey Cake Design to everyone.

  • Thankful Groom

    My wife and I found Clare faultless throughout the planning and delivery of our wedding cake. From the initial enquiry, to her delivering our cake tasting samples to my wife's work place she was excellent and extremely helpful. We went for a four tier raspberry/lemon semi-naked cake with seasonal berries and not only did it look amazing but it tasted perfect. We had non-stop compliments on the cake all evening. We both cannot recommend Clare enough.

  • Overjoyed Couple

    Clare at Dovey Cake Design came to our rescue (my cake designer let me down last minute) and saved the day. She was calm and collected and managed to improve our original design and offered us so much more. She invited us for a wonderful tasting and design session. She is just charming, polite, talented and exceedingly lovely. We could not be more thankful that she came to our rescue!

  • Happy Bride

    Thanks so much for your incredible effort with the cake - it looked absolutely fantastic and I'm delighted to report that almost all of it was eaten, to the extent that I didn't even get a bit of the lemon that I was looking forward to! As far as I'm concerned this is exactly as it should be. We will both be recommending you!

  • Delighted Couple

    A big thank you for our wedding cake - we and all of our guests absolutely loved it! All three flavours were absolutely perfect, and we even ended up with a little bit of the orange and almond and red velvet tiers to see us through the next week, which was a real treat. Thanks for looking after us and making everything so easy.

  • Happy Customers

    I couldn't recommend Clare and Dovey Cake Design highly enough. When we approached her with our ideas she just "got it", and us, immediately. Clare is really skilful at listening to clients and understanding their needs and tastes, and is also hugely versatile! The cake that resulted was stunning, not to mention delicious. The attention to detail was exquisite and her passion for her art really shone through. Thank you so much!
