Thought I’d come on here and introduce myself, so you all can see the face behind the business.
I am Vivean (Viv), creator and cleaner at HAPPY a lot of you have written to me and said you’d like to see the “team” in action well here’s the team “Me, myself and I”
I’m just a mummy doing her thing from her home kitchen in Wokingham Berkshire.
I started making cakes 10 years ago, the first one I made for was for my daughter’s first birthday, little did I know that soon I would be working 20 hour days creating hundreds of cakes year after year for all my wonderful clients.
Im originally from Bombay India, and will always be a Bombay girl at heart!
I get immense pleasure from feeding people, and my endeavour is to continue to create beautiful cakes that taste BETTER than they look
it’s probably why I don’t have a flavour list because I do them all! I also love creating bespoke flavours based on your preferences.
I named my business HAPPY because making these cakes for you makes me happy and knowing you enjoy them is my biggest reward.
I have the most supportive family behind me that comprises of my amazing (tech wizard) husband, a very observant(biggest cheerleader and critic) daughter and two adorable rescue dog babies.
I am very fortunate because I get to do what I love, surrounded by the people I love and this is why I will always keep HAPPY a small, home run business even though it’s gradually taking over our entire home
When my couples come to me for their wedding cake, they give me a rough idea of what they envision their big day will look like. They try my cake tasting boxes or (pre-Covid times) come over to our home for a glass of champagne or tea, coffee etc and sample yummy cake flavours and get acquainted with me, see examples of my work, I get to know them and understand their requirement better. Often they leave with more cake to take back to their close family to make sure they’re making the right choices with their flavours for the big day. They share their Pinterest boards with me, every aspect of their decor, colours, flowers are discussed in detail and then I begin working on creating a cake design that fits into the setting as perfectly as possible.
Wedding cakes are the last piece of the puzzle, the last thing to be made for the big day and I think a certain amount of flexibility in what the end result will look like is definitely needed.
When you hire a cake designer, you pay for their expertise, their skill set that they’ve spent years perfecting. You pay for a stress free interaction and a thoroughly professional service. There’s a lot that goes into making the perfect wedding day come together, the team you choose makes all the difference
This burgundy and gold leaf cake with cascading sugar roses was made for an amazing couple, they had some beautiful cake flavours too, an aero mint chocolate tier and chocolate chip cookie dough tier to name a few. Delivered and set up at one of our gorgeous local venues.
