Clare Dovey-Wilson of Dovey Cake Design sets up a six tier wedding cake


After leaving a career in fundraising, Clare surrendered to the feeling that she should be working in a creative role. Food and cooking had always been her first passion and therapy. 


Clare’s grandmother, Ruth was an exceptional baker and cake decorator. Clare vividly remembers watching her create beautiful, classic wedding cakes in her ‘shed’ in the 1980’s, making sugar flowers for hours. She was fascinated by Ruth’s books detailing how to make these decorations. 


For Clare, there is nothing more satisfying than creating something lovely to eat, that makes friends and family smile. Combining this with her natural artistic flair and love of great design enabled her to establish a business that hit the mark. 


Clare’s signature style is described as classic but with a fashion forward, contemporary twist. She fuses fresh, home baking with fabulous and innovative creative artistic expression. 


Taking inspiration from the smallest details of your day, she works to create stunning statement cakes which blend seamlessly with your wedding style, but that also evoke a sense of drama and fun. 


Clare is passionate about helping others to improve their baking, decorating and design skills. She teaches classes the beautiful setting of The Cake College, Berkshire. She works with everyone from beginner bakers through to other wedding cake professionals, teaching them everything from baking science to creating intricate sugar flowers. 

I couldn’t recommend Clare highly enough. When we approached her with our ideas she just ‘got it’, and us, immediately. Clare is really skillful at listening to clients and understanding their needs and tastes, and is also hugely versatile!
