Mesmerising Icing is a cake maker with a difference, Varsha specialises in eggless, vegan cakes that taste and look just as good as any non-vegan cake.
TELL US ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS?
Mesmerising Icing has been in business for 5 years, originating from a hobby spanning over 20 years creating artisan vegan cakes that are not only light and tasty but beautiful and elegant. We work with our clients to design the cake that they have in mind for their special day or celebration and bring it to life. There are a wide variety of flavours to choose from and the list is expanding, so there is a flavour for each tier that everyone can enjoy.
As well as creating cakes we also create cupcake bouquets with beautiful piped buttercream flowers, vegetarian but eggless cakes and cupcake bouquets. All our products, be it cakes, cupcakes, geo hearts or chocolate roses can be enjoyed by anyone whatever their dietary choice.
WHY DID YOU START YOUR WEDDING BUSINESS?
Whilst making celebration cakes and cupcake bouquets I was either asked whether I made wedding cakes or told that my cakes were stunning and that I should do wedding cakes.
They give me the chance to be more creative and work with couples to design a cake that is beautiful and elegant just for them. I love flowers, so making sugar flowers for a couple that has a special meaning for them, or reflects the bride’s bouquet, or a late relative’s favourite is a joy. I also love decorating a cake with fresh flowers, using petty ribbons and edible lace. Making something that will bring a smile and signify the love of a couple for each other which they can share with their guests is an honour.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN WEDDINGS?
I love meeting and working with a couple to create what they have in mind but cannot make themselves, which enables me to do it for them. Also, weddings enable me to work with like-minded suppliers, and together we can make a couple’s dream wedding come true.
WHAT KIND OF COUPLE DO YOU LOVE TO WORK WITH?
Easy going, open-minded, loves elegance and beautiful things. Has no misconceptions about vegan cakes. They are happy to have a vegan cake and understand that they or their guests do not have to have an alternative dietary choice to enjoy the cake.
“Can I choose to have different flavours for each tier of my wedding cake?”
WHY SHOULD SOMEONE BOOK YOU FOR THEIR WEDDING DAY?
I have been informed by former clients that when they met me I put them at ease, that I am helpful and accommodating and the finished product surpassed their expectations.
I put every effort into helping clients that book me, and work with them to produce a cake that they want and have dreamt of to celebrate their wedding and share with their guests.
WHAT QUESTION DO YOU GET ASKED ALL THE TIME BY COUPLES AND WHAT’S THE ANSWER TO IT?
Can I choose to have different flavours for each tier of my wedding cake?
Yes, you can, each tier is created separately and although it is put together it is separated by a thin board so the flavours won’t mix. When the cakes are taken away by the caterers they would or should use different knives so that the flavour from one cake is not transferred to the other. Choose the flavours you want and enjoy and don’t worry about your guests as there is always a flavour in one of the tiers that they will like.
WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER ONE PIECE OF WEDDING PLANNING ADVICE?
Enjoy planning it, and work with and trust the wedding planner or suppliers with your vision, they know what they are doing. If you haven’t got a vision but an idea or concept they will work with you to achieve what you want.
DO YOU HAVE A DREAM WEDDING VENUE, LOCATION OR WEDDING THEME THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO WORK AT?
I love working on intimate as well as garden and rustic themed weddings (mid-summer style) and my dream wedding venue would be Winstanley House a boutique hotel situated in parklands just outside Leicester City Centre or Barn wedding venues such as the Lakeside Suite a newly established barn conversion located in beautiful countryside surrounded by picturesque gardens and lakes.
