wedding cakes

Welcome to The Occasional Cake Company ST ANDREWS

I'm a Scottish wedding cake designer serving discerning couples who value quality, creativity and local artisanship 

I truly believe in creating incredibly special wedding memories for clients.  Your wedding is one of the most important moments in your lifetime.  A celebration of your love for one another. 

So I dedicate time, energy and creativity into handcrafting a wedding cake that's custom-made just for you with special meaning, love and attention to detail.  You and your wedding guests will have reminiscing memories of your wedding cake for years to come.

There is something very magical about helping clients fulfil their wedding cake dreams.  I love baking, cake artistry, sugar flowers and weddings with a passion.  Skill, patience, precision and high quality locally-sourced ingredients go into each and every wedding cake I make.  The aesthetics and taste are equally important. 

As a solopreneur, I focus on making one wedding cake per week to ensure service excellence.   

I'm hugely honoured to be an approved supplier to many incredible wedding venues in and around St Andrews, including The Old Course Hotel Golf Resort and Spa, The University of St Andrews, Rufflets Country House Hotel, Forgans St Andrews, Cambo House, and The Cow Shed Crail. 

I'll personally deliver and assemble your wedding cake on your big day.  And because home is right on the edge of St Andrews, your cake will travel a very short journey to reach your venue, which means a lower carbon footprint too.

For the past seven years, I've been proudly serving both UK and international wedding clients.  Whether you're planning your wedding cake in the UK or from the other side of the world, I aim to make the experience as stress-free and straightforward as possible. 

I'd describe my style as a fusion of organic and understated elegance.  Whilst wedding cakes are my main focus, I also offer a bespoke iced wedding cookie service.  

If you'd like to get in touch, please complete my website form, or drop me an email lesley@the-occasional-cake.co.uk to check my availability for your wedding date.  Please provide details of your wedding date, wedding venue and estimated guest numbers so that I can respond efficiently.  There is a standard £50 non-refundable booking fee for a private wedding cake consultation, but this is deducted from your wedding cake order.

My business days are normally Thursday through to the weekend, with the exception of school holidays.  Wedding cake commissions start at £400.  If you have special dietary requirements, I will do my very best to accommodate.


“Thank you for creating such a perfect cake.  Every detail was spot on and it exceeded all my dreams and expectations - you are super talented”
