Laura's Bonnie Cakes is a newly established cake decorating business, located in Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire. This started off as a hobby for me, as I loved making my children's birthday cakes.
Two years ago I decided that I wanted to learn some cake skills, to make my cakes a bit less bumpy and patchy, and more smooth and professional. I took a course at Aberdeen College and learned how to cover and decorate. Since then I have made a variety of different cakes for friends and family, my first cake I got asked to do was my brother’s Wedding cake. I am not going to lie, I was super nervous, but loved every minute.
I decided the end of last year I would like to set up "Laura's Bonnie Cakes", and I went and did my Food Hygiene.
I specialise in making bespoke, one off cakes for any special occasion, whether it be a birthday, retirement, anniversary, etc. I also cater for special dietary requirements, and have made a few gluten free cakes.
It gives me a lot of fulfilment and enjoyment making all these cakes and cupcakes, especially the reaction when the customer receives them (kids are the best at giving their own honest opinion). I take a lot of pride in my work and love a challenge.
