Today I want to introduce you to French Made, the incredible French cake maker of London Town. Influenced by the avant-garde, the alternative, and with her heart firmly in the darker side of the 1980s, Lauren makes wedding cakes that are perfect for readers of this blog. They’re all gorgeously different from the traditional white tower, and French Made works with you to create your perfect cake that truly reflects you both.

I’ve worked with Lauren on many styled shoots and I adore her creativity, her professionalism, the stunning cakes that make me gasp (I could never make anything like that!!), and I can confidently recommend her to you for your wedding.

Oh, and scroll down for an exclusive offer for readers of this blog only!!

All About French Made

Photo-1

Hey, I’m Lau from French Made. I originally come from Provence in the South of France, but I fell in love with England the minute I started getting into alternative ’80s music and subcultures as a child, so I decided to move here as soon as I was old enough. I love being creative and I love cakes, which is why I do what I do.

Way out Wedding features beautiful edgy quirky weddings and editorial shoots that totally match the French Made spirit.

What are you most proud of in your business so far?

Starting my lil cake company from nothing after having been a teacher (mostly a miserable one!) for 14 years with no knowledge of what running a business is like alongside being a momma and making it a success!

Fun Q&A!

The couple that orders my cakes… Wants a beautiful tasty rustic inspired wedding cake, as well as a friendly, bespoke personal service.

My heroes are… The guys that make such wonderful music that gives me the energy to get up in a morning to create my cakes. Where do I start? The Cure, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, Joy Division!

My theme tune is… The Cure – From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea (goosebumps)

I shouldn’t have a favourite type of cake, but it’s totally got to be… Naked cakes! Decorated with fresh fruit and flowers!

The next adventure for my business is… To grow our team.
