I’m Natalie Porter, founder and owner at Immaculate Confections.
It began a quite a few years ago with a wedding cake….my wedding cake actually.
When my husband and I were planning our wedding we soon realised that we wanted something personal and different for our cake… we weren’t able to find that locally so I took on the challenge of making our wedding cake myself.
As we both love all things fantasy and sci-fi we decided that a cake version of Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings would be perfect for us. It was unique, personal and special, forming the perfect centrepiece for our day –
that’s what I want to create for you.
Every wedding cake I create begins with a chat and design consultation. Each is designed and sketched from scratch drawing together all aspects of our discussion, thus producing a unique wedding cake which will suit both your wedding and personality.
You can read about the design process in more detail by clicking here.
I have a passion for design, colour and attention to detail. For me, cake is an art form. As a result the eye-catching designs I create are regularly featured in a number of industry leading magazines and blogs. In particular I am proud to have been commissioned to create a number of exclusive projects for ‘Cake Craft Guides’ and ‘Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft’ magazines and to date, have won four Gold awards for my designs at Cake International, the world’s largest cake convention and competition. In recent times I have turned my hand to teaching sugarcraft. It’s a joy to pass my knowledge and experience on to others and see how pleased my students are when they sucessfully complete a project.
I also enjoy making novelty cakes in all sorts of weird and wonderful shapes, from a bright red London Bus to an Alien egg complete with face-hugger. A couple of years ago I was asked to make a Hogswatch cake for the Discworld Emporium, which as a self-confessed lover of all things sci-fi and fantasy was a really fun opportunity.
Please take a look around, I hope you like what you see and do get in touch with any ideas, queries or to book a consultation.
