In the kitchen with Fiona Cairns as she bakes her rustic Lemon, Raspberry, Rose Petal Cake.
Fiona Cairns was established over 25 years ago, after Fiona made a batch of miniature fruit cakes for friends one Christmas. Trained as both a graphic designer and a pastry chef, Fiona’s cakes were both beautiful and delicious- there was nothing like them on the market at the time. They now make over 2 million cakes every year, and meet orders from Waitrose, Harrods, Selfridges, and Le Bon Marche in Paris, as well as selling their cakes online. On the journey from kitchen table to busy bakery, they have maintained their commitment to creating beautiful, handmade cakes.
We sat down with the woman who created the wedding cake for the Royals Kate Middleton and Prince William and asked her about her inspiring journey.
