Hello, I’m Deborah!

Award-winning cake designer and creative director of Newington Cakes

I find joy in creating sumptuously elegant wedding cakes that take peoples’ breath away from the moment they see their final design!

Do you want to discover how my journey and experience can help you design your dream wedding cake?

Pop the kettle on and let’s get to know each other!

I grew up to the delicious, sweet smell of cakes baking in the oven in my family’s kitchen; my favourite was my mother’s spiced apple! Eagerly, I’d wait to taste it, as the scent from the kitchen filled the whole house. Continuing on from the family tradition, I always baked for my own daughter, from school fetes to birthday parties.

My cake flavours and designs gained a lot of recognition…

In 2009, I secured a place in the London Marathon to raise money for The Anthony Nolan Trust.

I ran the marathon in memory of my Dad, who died of Leukaemia. At the time, I was working in the NHS, and had many friends and colleagues who supported me.

Cake sales were my main fundraising techniques, which went down a treat and escalated into a handful of cake orders from my friends and colleagues. I’ll never forget the beautiful (and delicious!) fairy castle cake I created for my friends’ daughter’s birthday party.

This was the very beginning of Newington Cakes and I officially entered the industry!

Experience, Training & Accolades

Completing the internationally recognised PME Professional Masters in Cake Decorating is one of my proudest accomplishments, as well as attending numerous courses with Cotton & Crumbs, Pretty Witty, and Faircakes.

I am dedicated to continually improving my skills and development as a cake designer. Staying on top of trends, experimenting with new techniques and providing the best possible service to my clients will always be at the top of my priority list.

As a self-confessed perfectionist, I will never let a cake leave the kitchen unless it’s pristine! Many high-end wedding venues recognise this trait of mine and proudly recommend me as one of their chosen suppliers.

I also hold the title of “Wedding Cake Designer of the Year” from the Kent Wedding Awards – it was an honour to accept this award from such an esteemed organisation!

Enjoy a Stress-Free Process & Stunning Final Design

From the very start of your journey, I am here to advise you on design options, colours, styles and sizes. Presenting you with your final sketch is a magical moment that my clients always enjoy; this is when you know your vision has authentically come to life!

I’ll liaise directly with your wedding venue, arrange delivery and set-up the cake on your big day, so that you can relax and enjoy the special moments leading up to your wedding.

My true happiness is creating cakes and collaborating with people with wonderful stories to tell. Seeing your cake displayed on your wedding table and the all important “cutting of the cake” moment fills my heart with joy every time!

Myself and Zoe can’t thank you enough, didn’t get a chance to talk to you on the day as it was full on as you can imagine but everything came together.

I have to say the cake looked amazing and tasted great especially the lemon drizzle, the carrot cake must have been good also as me and Zoe didn’t even get to taste this as it had all gone.

Thank you so much

Ted and Zoe
