Amy Swann cakes

Not only am I inspired by flowers at the moment,  but so is my amazing friend Amy Swann
I have wanted to blog about her for ages but it is now a great time as things are about to get very busy and exciting for her. 

She has just come runner up in the Country homes and interiors awards for Country business award 2012.....and boy am I proud of her.

 She made our wedding cake for us 5 years ago and been making wedding and special cakes for several years now.  She is an Art teacher, a Mum and an inspiration. I feel I can't just describe her as a cake maker, she is an artist...her cakes are works of art they are truly something else. She does actually paint parts of the flower.  She is just working on another signature cake right now, a 5 tier flower extravaganza. I will show photos when I get them. She is inspired by wild, country flowers, vintage style, colour, texture, go and take a look at her website, it is a work of art in itself.

So here are some images of her work, I have to point out though some of the flowers look unbelievably real, I can assure you they are made from sugar paste.

How lovely to see a working sketch. 
 is a fantastic idea, that the bride and groom can keep. The cake gets eaten but you have a beautiful sketch of your precious cake.

 So delicate 


 Beautiful ranunculus, love these colours
 My wedding cake

She is also on Facebook, so if you like what you see, go and support her and like her page too.
She is an unbelievably nice person too, she would make this part of your wedding so special, so if you, or anyone you know are getting married and want an experience and cake to remember, she's your girl.

All photos are from her website x

Wow! Her beautiful work makes me wish I lived closer to her, but at least I can check out her website and FB page. Thanks for the introduction, Janet. :)

It was so lovely to meet you today at your gallery. You have a really nice place and some wonderful pieces of artwork there. I bought some of your prints and they will have pride of place in my craft room when I return home. Good luck getting your workspace ready for your photo shoot.
