Hello all my Chalming Readers!

This year, Chalming Cake Designs has had its highest number of weddings (and boy it has been non stop work!), some exciting and different celebration cakes, had designs published in magazines and been apart of 2 weddings that have won weddings of the month/year. We have also moved and are currently creating a new work space that will be solely dedicated to creating cakes in 2017.

But this post isn’t about all the creations that have been baked and designed, I have been doing a different type of baking!

My husband and I are expecting our first Bundle of Joy.
She (yes we are having a little girl!) is due on the 9th November and we absolutely can not wait to meet her!


It is the hardest thing I have ever had to bake and I dont think I have ever been so tired, but when I feel her move it is worth every tired moment!

So as of October I will be taking some time off to put my feet up (I can only hope!), cook and freeze dinners and basically nest in preparation for our gorgeous little girls arrival!
I will be returning to work in June 2017. I will still be taking bookings over my Maternity Leave so that when I return to work I will be lovely and busy, so please dont hesitate to get in touch over this time as I will still be responding to emails if you are looking for a cake from June 2017.


I will however be reducing the amount of orders I take as I still want to make sure that the upmost care and love is taken with creating each order so I would kindly suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.


Well I am so pleased I was able to share our very exciting news with you and I will be sure to introduce her when she finally arrives!

Chalming Wishes
