Hello, welcome to Poppy Pickering Cake Design.
Established in 2013 and run by daughter and father team, Poppy Pickering specialise in creating bespoke hand made wedding cakes and delectable hand crafted chocolates. Everything is crafted in our little boutique kitchen and shop in Ilkley. Our fabulous range includes wedding cakes, hand made macarons, hand decorated cookies, chocolate favours, novelty chocolate shapes and individual bespoke chocolates.
I initially carved out a successful career in textile design however after having two children I decided that my passion for baking & design could be combined to create Poppy Pickering. So after many months of training and perfecting my recipes, I set about creating a collection of modern, contemporary bespoke wedding cakes. I feel like I now have a style for creating romantic, delicately coloured wedding cakes with a modern twist and clean finish.
My dad Geoff has had many years experience working in the food and hospitality industry and has already run several successful businesses. Using traditional chocolate recipes and through expert training courses, my dad found a tasty new passion and has created a new range of chocolates in addition to keeping some of the traditional favourites. Every chocolate is lovingly made by hand using the finest quality ingredients and now he has a collection of over 45 different flavour combinations.
All our chocolates are available to purchase either in our gorgeous little shop in Ilkley or online through our website.
