wedding cakes


"Thank you Isabelle for making our wedding cake & favours, we absolutely loved them! The cake looked unbelievable and tasted incredible (everyone commented on how nice it was). The whole process of having the tasting meeting and the hand drawn sketches of the design was brilliant. We hope to come across many more of your cakes at weddings we attend in future! xxx"


Established in 2011 by cake artist, Isabelle Pavlou, The Designer Cake Company specialises in creating bespoke wedding cakes in the North East of England and North Yorkshire.

Isabelle has always had a creative streak and began her career as a professional dancer with The Royal Ballet. However, having decided not to pursue this vocation, she turned to fashion design in order to satisfy her artistic flair and spent four years studying Fashion Marketing at Northumbria University in Newcastle.


Until this time, Isabelle had never baked a cake in her life but fifteen years ago, she met her husband Richard who had a tradition of making weird and wonderful birthday cakes for his two sons and this is where it all began.


Having discovered that she had a talent for designing and making cakes, Isabelle started teaching herself the techniques involved and quickly found that there was a demand for her talents among friends and family.


This demand grew and in 2011, Isabelle officially established The Designer Cake Company. Since then, the business has grown steadily and Isabelle is now a recommended supplier to a number of the North East's most prestigious wedding venues including Eshott Hall, Matfen Hall, Seaham Hall, Healey Barn and Beamish Hall.
