The icing on the cake for Angel Cake Company

Tucked away on Lydgate Street in Poundbury, just a short walk from Queen Mother Square where the festival takes place, sisters Nicci and Emma spend their days indulging in their passion for the sweet stuff. From intricate, hand-painted wedding designs to pretty cupcakes and biscuit favours, they create it all right here in their light and airy studio.


Along with their talent for baking (they won Taste of the West GOLD last year for their lemon drizzle cake), they have a true flare for icing. Delicate handpainted flowers and impressive sugar crafted peonies and roses are their speciality and hundreds of brides book them to design their wedding cakes each year, knowing that they will deliver the most picture-perfect cake for their day. At this year’s festival you can see the girls in action as they demonstrate their skills on their stand.
