A Bit About Us


Classic , Eclectic & Just a Little Quirky


The first thing I need to say about Fondant & Apron Strings is, we love to make cakes


I'm a firm believer that all the best wedding cake makers in the UK have one thing in common, cakes are a passion.


We love making cakes and we also love our cake customers.

We love to talk to our customers about cake flavours, we love to work with our customers to create the design thats perfect for them and their special occasion, and we love to make your cakes.

We  just love making cakes!


Fondant & Apron Strings are based in Stanhope, County Durham where we have a Cake Cafe serving our own baked goodies.

In the back of our cafe, well thats were all the cake magic happens.


After returning from living in Ohio USA,  I wanted to carry on making cakes for people, so we rented a small space and converted it into a cake design studio.

It was within the first year that we realised that the space was soon going to be too small.

Now, we are in a bigger space, and because of customer demand, we converted the front in to a small cake cafe.


There are many things that we pride ourselves on, our cakes, flavours, design, relationship with past, repeat and present clients, and our customer service.

Our customers obviously rate our customer service highly too as they  have  nominated us for many awards.

They have nomiated us for and we have been shortlisted for customer service awards from Guides fo Brides, and Bridesbook to name just a couple .


Our cakes have been in many reputable cake design magazines such as Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers Cake Craft Guide, Cake Masters Magazine.


Because of our high attention to detail and our very positive reputation ,we are often approached from Wedding venues from all over the North East to provide cakes for their wedding fayres, wedding displays and photo shoots where they are updating their brochures.


We work with some great wedding and event venues all over the North East and are proud to be the recommended wedding cake suppliers of many

I hope this lets you know a little more about Fondant & Apron Strings.


No matter what the occasion, We would love to talk to you about your cake.
