Welcome back everyone to our Q&A blog series. It’s a new week and with that I bring a new interview! I really hope you are enjoying the blogposts and that the information provided is helping assist you on your wedding planning journey!
This week I had the pleasure of speaking to Brian Roche of Baker Boy Cakes! I am sure a lot of you have heard about the Baker Boys through several recommendation’s – and if you haven’t well then keep on reading!
The Multi Award Winning bakery has been crowned ‘Best Wedding Cake Company’ year after year in Ireland and we can see exactly why. His work has proved to be the best in the business from wedding cakes, to christening cakes and every occasion cake in between. Once you see his images below, the incredible detail and finishing touches will reduce you to ‘tiers’! 😉
