Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Sweet Couture Wedding Cakes
Posted on 28 January 2017
This month we are highlighting Claudine, an incredible Montreal Baker, who we have been working with for almost since the beginning of “Sweet Couture”!
What made you become a baker
My love for good food! I love creating and designing, and for me pastry was the best place to create artistical confections while having culinary challenges.
How long have you been in business
Sweet Couture is 5 years old now – prior to that I was a fashion designer and I incorporate that background into my sweet creations, that’s why my company is named Sweet couture!
On average how many weddings do you do each year
Taking my work as art, I”m getting deeply involved in every single project, hence I can only afford to have 50 to 70 weddings per year plus corporate and special events.
What is the one thing you love most about being a baker
What I like the most is the challenge of creating something new that matches my customer needs while integrating my signature style.
How would you describe your design style
Very detailed and elegant couture cakes.. My style is baroque, vintage and dramatic.
What are your favourite flavours
My favorite flavors always include fruits such as raspberries, lemon and passion fruit.
What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding cake
They try to please everyone, my job is to help them find what represent them the best.
What do you think distinguishes your work from others
I work closely with my clients, from the very beginning till the end of the process. It’s the advantage of being a small company.
What advise can you give to the 2017 Brides & Grooms
Since we are a very busy bakery we highly recommend you to reserve your dates many months in advance.
What are the cake trends for 2017
Romantic cakes are a classic, while painted cakes are still very trendy, drip cakes and geode cakes are the next big thing! I try to keep in mind that what my couples like is still the best thing for them, don’t try to follow trends and be yourself!
