We had a chat with Claire to find out more…
Tell us your favourite thing about working with brides to be?
It's such a special time - such excitement, and it's great to be a part of that. It's also a huge privilege to be a part of someone's special day.
What inspires you in your work?
Anything and everything! Sometimes very random things like a pattern on fabric or colour combinations. A dress, or even a hat! Ideas can just pop up, so I like to keep a notebook to jot my thoughts down in.
What has been your favourite wedding that you have worked on so far?
I did a 200 cupcake tower last summer - covered in purple butterflies, with a giant cupcake at the top. That was great fun, and a huge success apparently! Getting feedback from the Brides is always nice.
What are your wedding trend predictions for the rest of 2014 and going into 2015?
There are always so many trends in the mix. Fabric effect flowers are very popular right now, especially in neutral colours. Hand painting on cakes is getting more and more popular too. Then there are things like edible gelatine sequins to add extra sparkle which will definitely be popular.
What would your top tip be to share with Brides to Be?
Don't be afraid to be creative. There are endless possibilities in wedding cake these days! And remember it’s your day and your cake. So make sure you have exactly what you've always dreamed of.
When you're not busy working at Claire's Sweet Temptations, what is your favourite pastime?
I love travelling. I've been very lucky and travelled a lot, but still want to go so many places!
