Even for smaller events or celebrations, our more compact celebration cakes still deliver a wow-factor, without going over the top. small is beautiful. Our celebration cakes tend to be a single cake/tier and can include buttercream flowers, sugar past flowers, hand painted, baroque detailing as well as tempered chocolate forms.
Producing concepts tailor-made to our client and their wedding theme, for a discerning luxury market.
Candy And Grim Cakes is based in the North East of England, near to Newcastle upon Tyne. However, we do deliver outside of the area.
Looking for something bigger, take a look out our luxury wedding cakes. Having a smaller wedding, but still want to make a statement, never fear, we can include some dummy tiers . Also, check out some of our other services, including flavours, tasting options as well as some extras.
Keeping to our creative roots is something that we are very committed to, we personally create your cake from design to finish, and take on a limited number of commissions to allow us to take the time and care needed to produce something unique. This approach also lends exclusivity to clients looking for something a little less ordinary.
Candy And Grim Cakes was launched following winning first, second and third prize in a regional ‘Bake-off’ charity competition in 2015, for each of our three cake entries. These included the world’s first 3D projection mapped cake sculpture, a miniature tradition floral buttercream celebration cake, and a sophisticated tempered chocolate cake.
Grim trained as a traditional 2D designer/illustrator favoring hands-on work. Grim was also well known for her range of sinister 3D clay characters created for stop-motion animation and dioramas.
She is now a master of anything and everything floral and can produce a dazzling array of butter-cream and sugar-paste flowers. Grim also adds the extra wow-factor to Candy’s cake sculptures with her unique illustrative skills.
'Candy' trained as a fine artist painter, but professionally worked as a 3D designer, motion graphics artist and in more recent years has developed a projection mapping and augmented reality skill set.
He loves nothing more than creating fantastical large chocolate sculptures, gravity-defying cakes, and projection mapping.
