About Us

Welcome to Appleblossom Cakes, The business is run by Joy Cartwright who has successfully run her business Appleblossom Cakes in the Midlands for over 9 years. Now looking to be closer to her family, Joy has made the move to Mid Wales and hopes that she can continue to be as successful in this new area and build up a new customer base supplying wonderful Wedding and celebration cakes. Joy holds ABC 1 & 2 qualifications in both cake decoration and flower making.  The business is well known for its novelty cake making and beautiful floral work. 

Joy also makes personalised bridal toppers with 7 inch figures being made modelling paste.  Customers can send in photos of their bride and groom outfits which can be made into delightful wedding toppers which will last for many years after the wedding day, creating a lovely keepsake of their special day.

Most of the business has been built up through word of mouth recommendations from existing customers, so they usually know about Appleblossom even before they order their cakes.  Once tasted, customers just keep coming back for more!!!!  Even now we have moved, previous customers still ring to place orders for their cakes so we feel that is a great compliment to the standard of cakes that we produce.

We pride ourselves in making fresh cakes with quality ingredients and we do regular Saturday taste sessions so you can come and try the cakes flavours before you order your cake.

Practise makes perfect so we try and introduce new flavours throughout the year.  This year we will be trying peanut butter cupcakes with peanut brittle topping and salted caramel cupcakes for our first taster sessions.

Cake Workshops
If you wish to learn a new skill, then we will let you know about our cake decorating workshops, usually run in spring and autumn (so we avoid wedding season).  You can choose from the following sessions and we usually only have 4 people per session so places go very quickly.  Keep a look out on our facebook page for details of classes. 

'Decorating Cupcakes', 'Making and covering a Christmas Cake', 'Flower Making' and  making 'Nursery Animals for Baby Cakes'

Life Before Cakes
Before running a cake business, Joy was a professional fundraiser for 26 years, working in the charity sector for 5 major charities   Because of this she supports local organisations in their fundraising by making up to 10 charity cakes per year for raffles.  If you would like a charity cake, please get in touch at least 4 - 6 weeks prior to your fundraising event.  We will only help your fundraising if you have a registered charity number which you can provide on a letterhead when collecting your cake.



Our 5* cake studio and kitchen is open for business Tuesday - Saturday
10 am - 4 pm.  We make all sorts of celebration cakes so always call to discuss your requirements.

Wedding consultations can be arranged for weeknight evenings from 7.30 pm and on Saturdays by appointment.   Celebration cakes can be ordered on-line for your convenience or you can just give us a call to chat about your cake.

For Wedding cake consultations, we can organise visits to you so you can choose your cake in the comfort of your own homes or you can come to us to chat.  Our motto is 'you put the kettle on, and we'll bring the cake!! Choose your cake samples and we'll make them for your appointment.  Once your cake is chosen, we will get your quotation done and then look after the preparation and delivery of your cake


Cake Stand Hire

If you have a beautiful cake, then you need a stand to give it the best presentation.  You can hire a stand for a very reasonable  hire fee.   We ask for a returnable deposit in addition to the hire fee.  This deposit is returned to you when you bring the stand back.

Under each cake stand picture you will find the price for the Hire fee for each stand. This is for a 3 day hire. Please note: If you are late returning the stand for any reason and do not notify us we may have to ask for a further hire fee. We rely on our stands coming back on time for other customers to use. Due to Breakages and Cake stands not being returned on time in the past we now ask for a deposit cheque (or cash) which we can return to you when you bring the stand back.
