Fay is also a recommended supplier to a number of local wedding venues and suppliers.

I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Nadin from Nadin Dunnigan Photography to create a video with her, and also with the help of Mo Thomson digital media. This is the end result of our time together, a peek at what goes into making a wedding cake in 1 minute 40 seconds… if only I was this fast. Normally it takes a few days of sketching to come up with a design, up to a week to make the sugar flowers, a morning of baking, a day of cutting, filling and covering cakes and board, another day to dowel, stack, add any decorations and arrange the sugar flowers. (let's just say I will not be going into acting anytime soon).

Fay's cakes is a recommended supplier to the following venues & companies

The barn at harburn

The Barn isn’t a “run of the mill” venue. Set amongst a traditional farm steading, the venue consists of a roundhouse and granary which have been gracefully renovated to provide a perfect entertaining space. The roundhouse was originally used as a treadmill and dates back 250 years, although its design dates back much further to the ancient Scottish Broch style.  French windows open up the venue to attractive gardens, landscaped lakes, and parkland, whilst inside exposed stone walls and high, wooden-beamed ceilings create a rustic, cozy feel.
