Cake Design by Joanna Clarke.

“I am happy to say a lot of my brides and grooms are revisiting me for other family celebration cakes, which is lovely as I get to watch their families grow.” - Joanna Clarke

Highly trained and experienced pastry chef Joanna Clarke is the talent behind Cake Design by Joanna Clarke. She has always had a great love of food and was fortunate enough to grow up in a family that regularly visited Michelin starred restaurants. She changed career path in her 30s, securing an apprenticeship in a 2 AA rosette restaurant.

Since then, Joanna’s working history includes award-winning restaurants and country house hotels where she's held positions from Pastry Chef de Partie to Head Pastry Chef. Joanna holds a Grande Diploma in Patisserie and Confectionery from Westminster, London. During this time, she trained under Chef Yolande Stanley MCA. She is also a member of The Association of Pastry Chefs and the British Sugarcraft Guild. Additionally, Joanna regularly attends masterclasses around the country to extend her and build upon her skills.

Riccardo Lavezzo

From her design studio and professional kitchen in Crowborough, East Sussex, Joanna uses her talent to create beautifully crafted bespoke wedding cakes that embody her high level of skill in both sugar and chocolate floristry craft. Her perfectly moist and beautifully designed cakes include handmade fillings and syrups created from her own personally developed recipes.

Joanna works closely with every wedding couple to create the perfect cake to complete their special day. She desires to give the couple the wedding cake they dream of that not only looks stunning but tastes divine. Couples who dream of an alternative wedding cake can be catered for too -- Joanna specialises in French Classical Croquembouche, filled with light mousseline and creams, which can be traditionally decorated with nougatine and Royal Icing on request.

Joanna also offers cakes to suit more modern tastes -- a range of naked and semi-naked cakes can be seen on her website. Joanna has also created gluten-free wedding cakes. In addition to wedding cakes, Cake Design by Joanna Clarke can also cater afternoon teas for weddings. Her website offers an afternoon tea tasting menu. You can find Joanna and her team at the two largest wedding exhibitions in the country.

During these events, appointments can be made to meet Joanna directly. Details of events and how to book an appointment can be found on social media.

Joanna’s cakes are available for delivery across the South East of England, East Sussex, Kent, Surrey, Essex and across London. However, by arrangement, cakes can also be delivered across the country.
