Helen Houlden has been decorating cakes for nearly
29 years. She studied the City & Guilds '121' at
Grimsby Technical College and the '790' at South Notts
College of Further Education. She has won Bronze and
Gold medals for her fruit cake and has been a member
of the British Sugarcraft Guild for 20 years.
She has been teaching and demonstrating for 13 years
and has appeared on the TV programme, Granada Breeze
with some of her creations.
In January 1999 she had the pleasure of making the
wedding cake for professional golfer, Lee Westwood,
on his marriage to Laurae Coltart, here in Nottinghamshire
and had also made the cake some years earlier for professional
footballer, Ian Woan, on his marriage to Kelly Sams.
Helen is classed as one of the top 10 cake designers
in the country by the bridal magazines, and articles
about her have been presented in Sugarcraft Magazines
and other local publications.

Thank you for visiting my web site. Here you will see
a small selection of my exclusive cakes. I make wedding
cakes, corporate cakes and very special cakes, all handcrafted
especially for you.
Although in the past I have sent cakes by courier all
over the country, I don't now do that and only make
cakes for delivery within a 30 mile radius of Nottingham.
This is because I don't have the time to do that any
. . .
My Cakes ...
I do not have set designs as I like to work individually
using ideas, colours, fabrics, embroidery patterns or
any theme or personal touch you wish to incorporate
into the design. This ensures the cake is truly exclusive
to you - traditional, unusual, classical, exotic, novel
- whatever you, the customer, require.
There are many different ways of displaying and decorating
cakes and if you do not see what you have in mind on
these pages, I will still be able to make it for you.
