Hello! So this is me, the face behind Philippa Rose Cake Design. I'm Philippa (Pippa for short) and my Mum's name is Rose, hence, Philippa Rose. I have recently rebranded from Pippa's Kitchen - Cake Design but don't worry, it's still me and I will still be giving the same high standard of work as before.
I grew up in East Anglia on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. I spent most of my career working as a Personal Assistant and then as an Event Manager running beer and whisky tasting shows. I met my husband Chris through my best friend and moved to Birmingham where he was then living. After a year he proposed, I know, keen wasn’t he, but hey when you know, you know and we moved up to Monifieth near Dundee in Scotland where he is originally from.
I went back to being a Personal Assistant and then when our first child (Olivia) was born I took my part time baking business to full time and here I am today. Harvey came along four years later and we have just added to the team with our black Labrador puppy called Willow.
A few of my favourite things include long walks on the beach, which we are really lucky to have on our doorstep, followed by a glass (or two) of wine or prosecco in a nice pub with a roaring fire. I also love reading a good book with a cup of tea cosied up on the sofa, watching a film or getting hooked on a box set - currently Suits (I know, I'm a bit behind the times). I LOVE a list and I’m super organised. I am a Harry Potter fan and they are my go to films to watch when I’m working. I also like to exercise, well, that’s not entirely true – exercise makes me feel good so that’s the main reason I do it. I love lying by a pool in a sunny country but I also enjoy getting my skis on and attempting to ski down a mountain but I can only manage the really easy runs!
I specialise in high end wedding cakes with beautiful sharp edges and a flawless finish. My passion is creating life like sugar flowers and I can sit for hours perfecting them. I have a great attention to detail and always want to make sure I design your wedding cake exactly as you have imagined it. Olivia tells me I am the best cake mummy in the world so she must be right!
