All Things Wedding Cake! Nice Ribbon Atelier
If you read the post all about our founder’s amazing baby shower recently, we’re sure that you were struck by the images of her absolutely gorgeous cake, which was devoured by guests all too quickly. If you were one of the many readers wondering who was behind this oh-so-cute (and yummy!) creation, you’ll be pleased to know that today we feature the talented lady responsible for this beautiful centerpiece. We caught up with Ana Lemaitre, of Nice Ribbon Atelier, to talk all things cake and to find out about the occasions that Ana caters for.
What made you fall in love with designing and making wedding cakes?
I´ve always had a sweet tooth and also loved all things DIY and arts and crafty. In addition, I’m a graphic designer, so I guess it has always has been there, and it was just a mater of time to put those things together. One day I was looking at cake designs and it just hit me! I realised that I could combine my two passions; baking and designing.
How did you get started?
I was already working in graphic design for events, making the invitations, signs, stationery and all the design related items for parties and weddings, and I just realised that I spent too much time online looking at beautiful cake designs. So, I decided to learn the techniques and master them, and that was it…I just fell in love with cake decorating.
What is your favourite part of your job?
I think it is the reaction of my clients when they see their cakes. There is nothing better than seeing your client’s reaction when they love your work. I love to have a nice compliment from a happy client, and the fact that the brides take the time to write me a thank you note the day after their wedding just makes me sooo happy!
What are your top tips for brides to be who are looking for a wedding cake?
I think it is always nice when the cake matches the aesthetic of your wedding day, so it is really important to pay attention to every detail like the colour palette, invitations, table décor, etc so you can match your cake with your wedding theme or style.
It’s important to look for inspiration, once you decide the style that you want to have, as it’s always nice to look for some designs that you like, as a reference. Once you’ve set an idea of the cake that you would like to have, go for a consultation with your cake designer, and based on that idea, you can work on the new design for your lovely cake.
Do you have a favourite combination of flavours that appeals to most people?
I don’t have a favorite flavour of my own, but with time I have noticed that the flavour most of my clients like is the traditional vanilla/chocolate combination.
How do you ensure that your cakes taste as amazing as they look?
I always make sure to use the best quality products when baking the cakes. It is also important for me to guide the brides when choosing the flavours, since it depends on so many factors, like the weather (if your wedding is taking place outdoors or indoors), etc.
Do you make cakes for other special occasions, if so which ones?
Yes, I work with all kinds of cakes: birthdays, kids’ parties, graduation, corporate events, sculpted cakes…you name it!
