About me

About Sara Ruddick Cakes in Carlisle, Cumbria

I started my own business as a Cake Designer and Sugar Craft Artist in May 2017 after I had made numerous cakes for friends and extended family over the years.

Having enjoyed baking and sugar craft, as a hobby, I'm now able to indulge my artistic and creative flair to the full. I am a mum to one little boy who keeps me on my toes, and being a home based baker means I can plan my work around other activities, he is always keen to know if there are any ‘off cuts’ for him after I have been baking and of course, he gets the most amazing birthday cakes…so he says!

I have experience in using sugar paste and royal icing techniques, making sugar flowers and modelling. My cake style can be described as elegant, classic/traditional, exquisite, contemporary/modern, and sometimes even a little ‘quirky’!

I apply my meticulous attention to detail to achieve a fine finish to my cakes. You can expect a perfectly smooth curved finish, or the fashionable ‘sharp edge’ finish to your sugar paste cake. I can create a beautiful luxury sheen finish to your cake using the modern, very ‘on trend’, edible lustre dusts to compliment your colour scheme. I also use moulds, stencilling, edible lace work, ruffles, pearls and other techniques in addition to my delicate handmade sugar flowers. The choice is yours.

I offer a free wedding cake consultation where your ideas and inspiration are transformed into your very own bespoke wedding cake design, and you can taste some cake too.

Please see my gallery showing examples of some of my more recent cakes.

If you like what you see and would like me to design and make your special cake, please get in touch. I’m now accepting bookings for Wedding and Celebration cakes for 2019 and 2020.
