Hello! I’m Nicola, Founder and the creative visionary behind Ruby & Pearl Cake Art.
I have been designing and making buttercream wedding cakes, celebration cakes and dessert table offerings in the Scottish Borders since 2016.
My love of colour and texture plays a huge part in my design aesthetic, allowing each of my creations to be organic, artistic and unique to you.
Cake wasn’t always in the career plan though and was something I ‘fell’ into after making a birthday cake for a family member and the rest, they say, is history. However, I have always been creative and showed a real interest in fashion and design from a young age. As a child, I was always drawing and painting, designing clothes was a favourite! This would eventually lead me going on to study textiles and fashion design.
After graduating, I worked for a knitwear manufacturer where my favourite role was colour matching, this was where my true passion for colour would be realised. Some 20 years on, this natural skill of creating colours and colour palettes would once again be my favourite role but in a completely different capacity – cake art!
I count myself as one of the lucky ones, doing a job I love. Not only do I get to be creative but I get to play a small part in your Big Day and that in itself is an honour.
