RLCC EST. 2011


Hello *big wave* Nat here - the owner, designer, baker & creator of Ruby Lou's Cake Co.

RLCC was born in 2011 in my kitchen after making my sons 1st birthday cake {a real labour of love!} After finding my feet in the wonderful wedding world and establishing myself as an award winning cake designer in the East Midlands, I outgrew my humble kitchen and set up shop in my studio in Nottingham.

The Ruby Lou's Way

I pride my business on having its own unique and creative style. There's nothing I love more than to translate current and up and coming wedding trends into all things 'cakey.'

Everything that I design and create is authentic, original and has a flawless, luxury finish. I don’t do price lists, replicas or catalogues, as I truly believe that sitting down with a client during a consultation is the best way to understand and interpret your ideas.


Get In Touch

If you like what you see and are ready to embark on your Ruby Lou's journey, then the first step is to get in touch. I'd love to hear all about your wedding day and ideas. 

seeing their face when they see the design I sketch – the perfect design even they didn’t know they wanted... I’ll never tire of that!

The Design Consultation

The next step is to get together and discuss all things cake!

Design consultations are held at the Ruby Lou's Cake studio, Nottingham - a converted old mill with vaulted roof, huge beams, brick works and oodles of natural light. A great place to get those ideas flowing.

Each consultation starts with a blank notebook, which I use to go through all detail and elements of your day. I may ask random questions to get a sense of your personality. But trust me there is method to my madness and it all allows me to sketch out the perfect design for you.

The experience usually lasts around an hour or so and of course there will be a variety of cakes - and if you're very lucky, some treats too - for you to taste.
