In the wise words of Little Britain’s Marjorie Dawes; “I’m just one of those people, I come home and all I want …. I just love cake. I love cake! I love a bit of cake. Cake!” But it’s not just any cake I’m after, no sir. Don’t give me any of that bland, dry, shop-bought cake that’s most likely been sitting there for 2 days slowly being drained of all flavour and moisture. I want the good stuff, the kind of cake that’s worth ignoring your diet for. The kind of cake that looks as good as it tastes – that’s my kind of cake! Which is why I L.O.V.E, love The Whimsical Whisk so very much. This talented little cake company creates the most beautifully decadent cakes that not only beg you to eat them but also leave you wanting more.
The brain child of passionate baker, Rezana, The Whimsical Whisk is driven by passion and lots of it. Rezana started baking as a hobby and while she was always the family’s so-called “designated baker” she never considered baking cakes for a living. But, luckily for all us cake lovers out there, her family convinced her that people would be willing to pay good money for her magnificent creations and The Whimsical Whisk was born!
Today The Whimsical Whisk offers everything from kiddie’s birthday cakes, wedding cakes and special occasion cakes to a variety of homemade products like gourmet marshmallows, meringue kisses, chocolate truffles, cupcakes and decorative cookies. Rezana has even done a few celebrity weddings and knocked it out of the park with wedding cakes so beautiful they almost show up the bride!
Rezana is known for her whimsical decorating style and oh-so-deliciously moist cakes and you can’t go wrong with ordering one for any special occasion. But it’s not just her cakes that cause a stir – her clients also love her meringue kisses which are a fabulous addition to any dessert table. The cakes and meringues can be customised to your liking and theme and you can be sure that whatever arrives will take your breath away when you see it for the first time. The Whimsical Whisk also a selection of ‘cakes of the week’ which can be ordered a week or more in advance. The flavours change on a weekly basis and in the past Rezana has offered flavours like Chocolate Meringue, Carrot & Coconut, Chocolate Espresso, Honey Lavender, Rose & Pistachio, and many more.
The cakes are customised to each client’s needs so unfortunately I can’t share prices with you but I can tell you that Rezana is always happy to work with any budget big or small to give you a cake you and your guests will absolutely love.
