This is me
Hi, I'm Kristy owner, baker and cake decorator here at Pumpkins to Pearls where I design and create custom cakes and cupcakes for all occasions.
Pumpkins to Pearls is based in Watford, Hertfordshire and I supply wedding cakes, celebration cakes and cupcakes to the local area.
I began baking when I was a little girl with my Grandma in her kitchen and I always loved to bake as I was growing up. I have always enjoyed arts and crafts and one day whilst looking for my next project signed up to a cake decorating course at college and ended up completing Levels 1, 2 and 3 as I loved it so much.
When I had my first daughter I decided that I wanted to earn my living doing something I loved but that also meant I could stay at home with my daughter. So in 2014 my beautiful daughter and my business were born.
In 2020 things obviously took a down turn when large celebrations weren't possible, so I opened my Etsy shop where I sell pre designed and custom icing stamps for cupcakes and luxury baking kits which are ideal for hobby bakers and are great gift ideas for budding bakers.
Moving on to 2020 and I decided, because I don’t have enough to do, to write my first recipe book and in November I released It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas, a Christmas recipe book with 25 sweet recipes for the festive season. This is currently available on Amazon.
So here I am loving life getting to create your dream cake for your special day, even if I do have to do the washing up at the end of the day!
Whenever we begin to plan a party or event we always add cake to the list. It’s a tradition in so many celebrations as one of the focal points. At our weddings we cut the cake in front of our guests, we sing happy birthday and blow out candles on our birthday cakes and we use cake to mark milestones such as anniversaries, graduations and christenings.
We create life long memories at these events and I want to create the perfect cake to complete the finishing touches to your day.
I offer a truly personal service as I carry out all consultations myself as well as design bake and create the finished cake.
I don’t have a menu of cakes as I make one off, custom cakes that are never recreated. I don’t copy other cakes but if you have seen something you love I can use it for inspiration.
I can make any flavour and advise you on what flavours work together. The first impression is how my cakes look however it is important to me that they taste just as good. All of my cakes are made fresh and where I can I try to support other small business’s to purchase my supplies.
I can create any design you like however I specialise in icing models and sugar flowers. Have a look at my gallery for
For a truly memorable addition to your party or event that will be talked about for years to come this is the last stop on your search for the perfect cake.
