Today, we are introducing YaYa’s Boutique Cupcakes, one of our new suppliers on Weddings in Surrey and Weddings in Hampshire. We were amazed by their gorgeous creations, especially their sphere cupcake range. We wanted to know more about what inspires YaYa’s Boutique Cupcakes, and how they started their business.
Vintage Birdcage Wedding Cake
Tell our readers a little bit about yourself, who you are and what you offer couples planning their weddings in Surrey.
We are a boutique bakery creating beautiful, unique, amazing tasting cakes, cupcakes and cake pops using only the finest, freshest ingredients. All of our cakes are handmade and we are supplied by local, organic producers whenever possible. You will not find any preservatives or chemical additives in our cakes which makes them great for little ones too! You can be sure that your cake will be of the finest, freshest quality as all of our cakes are baked fresh less than 24 hours before delivery. We offer couples a bespoke service. Unlike some cake companies whom have a portfolio of standard cakes to choose from, we can create your beautiful, unique and personalised cakes, created using your chosen colours and design. We also create stunning dessert tables adorned with coordinating cake pops, sweet trees and other decadent treats. Our range of cakes are both unique and stunning. Cake pops make a versatile and unique addition to a wedding. Whether on a tiered stand topped with a cutting cake, on a dessert table or as favors on tables (decorated with luxury ribbon and a personalised tag they make a personal gift to your guests. Our cupcake bouquets make beautiful table centrepieces and unlike flowers will serve a dual purpose; a stunning table adornment AND a delightful treat. They can also be made in flowers of your choice and to co-ordinate with your wedding colours.
Wedding Vintage Cupcakes
When and why did you launch your business?
We launched the business last year after repeated and persistent requests to do so. Prior to starting the business our cakes were made for family and friends but people repeatedly requested our bakes as they advised it was difficult to find fresh, quality, handmade cakes that were not loaded with preservatives and additives. So after repeated demand, YaYa’s Boutique Cupcakes was born in 2013 and I am pleased to say we have grown from strength to strength!
Who inspires you the most in the wedding industry?
There are many who inspire us. We love all things chic and unique and also have a secret love of vintage. Some of our favourites are: for wedding dresses Caroline Castigliano (for her handcrafted, luxury wedding dresses) and regarding wedding cakes we love Leslie Matsis Cakes.
What is the most amazing order you have had?
Every wedding order is both special and exciting as it is both a pleasure and privilege to be part of such a special and memorable day. Nothing is too much trouble for us and we bend over backwards to ensure we not just meet but surpass couples’ expectations. We love all weddings from the elaborate castle wedding with hundreds of guests to the small, intimate ones not to mention one or two celebrity weddings we have had to pleasure to be involved with! We particularly loved working with the England Rugby World Cup 2015 they are both a delightful and fun bunch!
What is your greatest achievement in either your business or personal life?
What makes it all worthwhile is the amazing comments and thank you’s we receive from our clients. We have photos, cards and even gifts sent to us in appreciation for our work. I think to have all our clients be so elated with our work is certainly one of our greatest achievements.
What is the one piece of wedding planning advice you would give to couples
Make sure you ENJOY your day. It goes so quickly that you really should relax and take it all in. The little details do not matter so much, the day will proceed beautifully anyway. Take time to look around, to enjoy both the venue, the people and the atmosphere – you will never get it back. Oh and keep a handkerchief somewhere… you’ll be surprised at the emotion that can overtake you, particularly when facing your husband/wife to be and taking your vows!
