It was so great to meet Jo, the founder of Sweet at Yew Lodge wedding fayre. I just knew that my bride and grooms to be would simply love her designs....and I can actually speak from experience when I say they also taste delicious!
Heres what Jo had to tell us about whats going to be HOT this wedding season.
Tell us a little about your business. What is it that you supply?
My business is everything ‘sweet’! I make wedding cakes, edible favours and especially love creating dessert tables. I also have a wooden cart which I hire out for anything from sweets to Krispy Kreme donuts.
Tell us a little about why you created your business.
I have been a pastry chef since I was 19 but after 8 years being the pastry chef in a premier stately home wedding venue, I was a little disillusioned with watching sometimes beautifully decorated cakes which were dry or even raw in the middle to not very well decorated but tasted amazing! Why couldn't they be both but not cost the earth? So I handed in my notice and jumped in with both feet!
What makes your business unique?
Exactly that, above. I care, perhaps too much sometimes but I want to get it right, so people come back for more. Cake makes people happy, especially if it's great cake!
What were you most popular services / products in 2016?
I've only been trading since November 2016 but had lots of interest in my sweet cart
What do you predict will be popular in 2017?
I'm really hoping that semi naked drippy cakes, elegant yet simple, are here to stay especially if a macaron or two is involved – baking magic!
Why should our brides book you?
Because no one is going to care about your cake as much as I will. It will look and taste great and you know it’ll be made by me and not by a big brigade of staff.
