Hello I am Hannah, I love designing and making elegant, luxury, showstopping wedding cakes that complement and reflect your chosen wedding style.
Baking has been a passion from a young age. It all started when my mother gave me The Dairy Book of Baking for my 13th birthday, with the expectation I would bake a Victoria sponge every Saturday ready for Sunday afternoon tea. I duly obliged and with practice my Victoria sponges had the lightest texture and were full of flavour.
I trained as a nurse then, when my children were of school age I trained as a Montessori teacher. With three children I had lots of practice baking and decorating their birthday cakes. Then one day a colleague asked me to bake & decorate her daughters 21st birthday cake, my immediate reaction was to say “No, I am not good enough!” But she persuaded me, believing I could create the beautifully, elegant cake she wanted. She was delighted with the result and so was I!
I used to say, “One day I will have a cake decorating business!” In 2017, that day came. I have loved every moment since then - making a cake for a special occasion is such a privilege. I love creating luxurious, elegant, romantic cakes that are rich in texture with hand crafted sugar flowers. I also love experimenting with cake flavours, I was pleased when my carrot cake made it into the national top ten at The Cake Professionals Baker of the Year Competition in 2020.
I continually strive to improve my skills. In 2019 I enrolled onto a City & Guilds Cake Decorating Level 2 course. I was delighted when I qualified with distinction across all five categories. For me, a cake must look and taste amazing. It is so rewarding when clients are delighted with the look of a cake and then later tell me how delicious it tasted.
I pay close attention to detail, use quality ingredients, and create a unique design for each cake.
When I am not in my studio creating delicious cakes, you can find me in the garden, or walking in the beautiful countryside on our doorstep with our dog Oscar and my husband. I love spending time with my grown-up children and travelling. I love travelling to lesser know destinations, enjoying local cuisine and culture. Holidays involving a challenge are the best, a couple of memorable adventures are, hiking in the Simien mountains, and in 2012 I was accepted to be part of an all-girl crew in a Girlguiding tall ship sailing challenge. I also enjoy quiet, relaxing luxury holidays!!

Thank you so much for our wedding cake. It looked and tasted amazing! Everyone complemented it and asked who made it. Everyone who tried it is still going on about how good your cake was so thank you!
Emma & Adam
I asked Hannah to make my wedding cake. She did an amazing job, and it was above and beyond my expectations! I would 100% recommend The Paradise Cake Company.
The cake was a great success. The consensus was that it tasted very good and people didn’t believe that was a gluten free. Comments I heard were, that it was a lovely texture, moist, lots of fruit and well decorated.
