Elegant Cake Designs
by
Claire Arscott

A Claire Arscott cake design is a culmination of elegance and creativity, blended with heavenly, mouth-watering flavours.

I create beautiful and delicious wedding cakes for couples looking to celebrate their wedding in Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Cornwall and across the UK.

Providing a highly professional, yet friendly service, I allow your wedding cake experience to be inspirational, exciting and stress free.

Please enjoy looking through my portfolio and why not get in touch to commission your perfect wedding cake.

“I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing cake I’ve ever seen! It was truly incredible. It was absolutely beautiful and even better than I could have every imagined.”

It certainly felt that Summer had arrived for O&P’s wedding morning in late May. 
Clear blue skies looking out over Shaldon and Teignmouth, what a spot to celebrate and celebrate they did!!

A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of setting up for Z&R’s wedding at this charming former Sunday School @thehallexeter.

A venue full of character, history and situated on one of the oldest (and steepest!) surviving parts of Exeter City, love it!

Classic elegance 🤍

I’m a sucker for a B & W shot but often they just don’t showcase the cake details enough …
but not on this occasion .. this image is perfect!

From initial sketch to the first cut

Following design discussions, an impression sketch is the beginning of the vision, for your dream wedding cake becoming reality.

This was @leannenutley vision and the classic bow took centre stage in this elegant wedding, with a certain Hollywood feel don’t you think?

I’ll be sharing a few more “sketches to final design stories”, in the coming months, as many more ‘first cuts’ take place.
The Clematis is loving the sunshine and flowering beautifully in the garden.

If you love them, as much as I do, and want to incorporate them into your seasonal wedding decor, they are a beautiful addition to your floral display.

However, Clematis can be toxic and therefore not suitable to adorn a cake but my handcrafted sugar flowers are a perfect alternative.
Over the moon to have my cakes featured not once but twice in the latest Devon edition of @wedmagazine 🤍 Thank you x

👇I think I may have a few cookers in the Autumn 😵🫶

Sharing Cake Centrepiece

Treat your family and friends with cake that they can cut themselves and have as little or as much as they’d like! 

No more comments from your guests such as,

“What cake?” 
“I saw it being cut but didn’t get to eat any!” 

Perfect for banquet style dining and a beautiful centrepiece to share.
