Here, we meet Lyndsey, founder of the incredible Smiggle Kitchen to talk eggs, Downtown Abbey and Taylor Swift!

Lyndsey, your cakes are amazing! What is your secret to making them so big and WOW!?
My aim is to make each and every one of my cakes as inviting as possible. I want the guests at a wedding to leave with a great big slab of deliciousness, not your average inch square piece of dried up cake. I use 98 eggs to create some of my bigger cakes and have a real passion for what I do which I feel shows in my cake creations!

How would you describe your cakes?
One of my brides recently said ‘There’s a naked cake and then there’s your naked cake’. That pretty much sums my cakes up really. I’ve taken the naked cake concept but rather than being stripped back and bare, it’s a spectacle. My cakes are around 18” wide and between 1.5ft and 2ft tall. I use all local produce and focus heavily on flavours – there’s no point in the cake looking amazing if it doesn’t taste amazing too so I take a lot of time perfecting the taste. I like to think my cakes wouldn’t look out of place on the table at Downtown Abbey!

What do you feel makes your cakes stand out against other wedding cakes?
I’ve not seen anyone do what I do. I would have to say the size of my cakes makes me stand out, the amount of ingredients and fruits that I use plus I like to use flowers from the brides bouquet to give the cake that extra special touch.

What made you decide to start making cakes for a living?
Following a terrible family tragedy, I see cakes as a way of coping and having something lovely and wonderful to focus my energy into. I am the eldest of 37 cousins so I feel like I’ve spent my entire life either baking or cooking for people so it’s just something I love to do!

How far in advance should people book you for their wedding?
It varies really. I have taken bookings for the end of next year but then I also have brides book me who get married the following month. I try to be as flexible as possible.

Who would be your dream wedding to provide a  Smiggle cake for?
Well, I would love to see Taylor Swift finally settle down and how amazing would it be for me to design a cake creation for Taylor and her new flame, Tom Hiddleston!
