This rarely available opportunity has established itself as the area’s premier creator of bespoke wedding cakes and cupcakes, novelty birthday cakes and cupcakes; for adults and children; christening cakes, baby shower and new arrival cakes.

Named by Trip Advisor 2014 (Travellers Choice) as the top seaside resort in the UK, Torquay is a friendly and pleasant place with opportunities for sporting and leisure pursuits. It has a high degree of educational excellence and health care provided by Torbay Hospital and the private hospital of Mount Stuart. The sheltered sailing waters of Tor Bay area a mecca for water sports enthusiasts with an award winning 440- berth marina providing a safe harbour. Away from the coast the softly rolling hillsides of Devon hides pretty market towns and the dramatic beauty of Dartmoor, one of two national parks in the county. Communication links include access to the intercity network at Newton Abbot with trains to London Paddington (fastest journey time 2 hours 35 minutes), Bristol and the North of England.
