Hi I'm Davinia Cake designer and owner of Chloébelle's Cake Boutique. I started my career in Huddersfield where I studied Hospitality management, classical French cuisine and Patisserie.
Having had a varied career within the catering industry I have gained a wealth of experience. From my early days working as a chef I fully understand that taste is as important as the design of your cake.
I have also been privileged to have worked on several occasions at the Royal Chelsea Flower show and the open golf. Following working at prestigious events in a high pressure environment I took the step into wedding planning. My final appointment was as a wedding co-ordinator in a 4 star hotel. By now I had learned the in and outs of the wedding industry and was about to embark on my life changing move to France.
So in 2010 I was finding that France offered me a slower pace of life which allowed me to persue my passion for baking. I had from a young age had a love for baking. My earliest memories of being let loose in the kitchen were at my Granny Mary's house who nurtured my enthusiasm and eventually entrusted me with her recipe book, some of which have been handed down through generations.
News of my cake making spread through my small village and I would often find people knocking on my door requesting cakes, so in 2011 my dream of owning my own cake boutique became a reality when I opened my first very small bakery.
With the Popularity of "English Wedding Cakes" growing I decided in spring 2016 to move to bigger premises. This is where we remain to date, situated in the heart of Chateauponsac. If you would like to discuss your ideas or arrange a tasting for your wedding cake appointments can be made by email: [email protected]
Baking with a little love
