Welcome to The Pretty Cake Company. I am Samantha Tempest and many years ago I started my business from my simple kitchen table. I'm so proud to have seen it evolve into the company that it has become today.










I always loved home baking as a child and over the years, now looking back, I can see how I perhaps had a flair for creative baking. I originally started working in clinical research but once my first daughter arrived I decided to dedicate my time to being a full time mum.


The turning point for me was making my daughters 3rd birthday cake in 2003, a fairy tale castle with marshmallow turrets, and thinking how much fun it was and also seeing her little face light up.


I started experimenting and practicing and over the following five years, I increased my skills and portfolio. In 2008 I launched The Pretty Cake Company and having seen it start as a celebration cake business, doing a bit of everything, I've now seen it develop into a high end bespoke cake business with wedding cakes being my true passion and drive.


I work closely with many high calibre venues and wedding suppliers in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds and I'm delighted to have my work featured in many bridal and wedding cake magazines



I run my business from my home based cake studio in West Oxfordshire, it is where I meet with couples for consultations and where inevitably, 'all the magic happens'! I love working closely with couples to produce their dream wedding cake, making sure that it fits perfectly with their theme and the expectations of the day. 






I hope I can be of assistance  to you in designing and creating your wedding cake, but in the mean time, I hope you enjoy browsing through my designs.
