Creating centre-stage wedding cakes especially for you
From a career as an Optician to training with world-renowned cake artists
Hello, lovely soon-to-be-wed couples! I’m Anesha, the talent behind the artistic wedding cakes at Anesha’s Art of Cakes. My journey has been a transformation, from childhood adventures in a tropical village to crafting exquisite cakes for prestigious venues in the East Midlands, UK.
I grew up on the vibrant islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I loved to explore my Aja’s (my paternal grandfather) lush five-acre garden of mango, cashew, guava, and coconut trees. Our meals were always made with fresh, seasonal produce from the land around us, instilling authenticity in all my cooking.
Although I was dubbed the creative one in my family and dreamed of being an artist, societal norms guided me towards a conventional path. However, creating birthday cakes for my children reignited my passion for artistry. This happiness motivated me to pursue professional Sugarcraft tutoring. With a leap of faith, I left my optician career to establish Anesha’s Art of Cakes. Now, I spend my days creating intricate and unique wedding cake designs that bring joy to my couples on one of the most important days of their lives.
Growing up in a multicultural household, I was exposed to diverse flavours and techniques from different cuisines. Incorporating these influences into my cake designs is a way to honour my roots and create truly memorable experiences for my couples. Each cake tells a story, blending tradition with modernity and leaving a lasting impression on the taste buds and the heart.
Following my true calling has turned my passion into a rewarding career. In the same light, you should follow your instincts; choose a wedding cake that is far from societal conventions but one that reflects your personality, preferences, and unique love story. After all, your wedding cake is the superstar of your reception. From elegant and traditional designs to whimsical and modern creations, I am dedicated to collaborating with you. Together, we can ensure that each bite of your wedding cake is as memorable as the moment you say, “I do.”

We met Anesha to talk about our wedding cake designs but honestly, we weren’t really sure what we wanted. We had a vague idea but let Anesha know that we weren’t really sure what type of cake or what was even possible. We’d met a few other wedding cake vendors who’d shown us typical cakes but we were looking for something a little (but not too) different (we just didn’t know what yet!).
Anesha from the first moment we met her was friendly, approachable and clearly enthusiastic and passionate about her job, which meant that she was able to guide us through the whole process of getting our dream wedding cake with ease. She gave us just the right number of options so we didn’t feel overwhelmed but gave us ideas we’d never have come up with on our own, but loved.
Before we decided on favours we bought some cupcakes from Anesha of different flavours (some we picked and some we asked her to surprise us with as we quickly learnt this lady knows what she’s doing to make something delicious). We ended with a semi-naked ‘trio of cakes’, each cake a different flavour and honestly it is the best cake I’ve ever eaten! She kept us in the loop throughout and was so friendly, but honestly, we knew we were in good hands.
I cannot rate her (and her amazing cakes) highly enough!
