Colhoun Creations is a natural wedding cake bakery based in Dublin. We create very simple wedding and unique wedding cakes with all our inspiration coming from nature and a huge emphasis on local and Irish ingredients.

I had studied baking in college and the love for wedding cake design stemmed from our internship year where I had an amazing mentor guide me through the whole wedding industry.

How long have you been in business?
I have been in business for just over 2 years now.
Where do you find inspiration?
Mostly nature, but also looking at new trends in fashion and interior design.
What should couples know before hiring a cake designer?
To get booked in sooner rather than later as wedding cakes take longer to design than a regular celebration cake.
What sets you apart in your field?
The personal touch I have with my couples, not many cake designers sit down for an in-person cake tasting with their clients, but it is a really important part of my business to fully grasp the idea of a couple and to get to know them personally as well.
What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Picking cakes that are too large for their wedding, just for the look of a big cake, and end up having a lot of wasted cake and money at the end.
What’s your best advice for couples planning a wedding?
Book a later wedding ceremony and enjoy and relax during the morning.
What’s the most memorable event/wedding you have ever worked on?
I would say making my brother’s wedding cake. I got free reign on design and ideas and It was the first family wedding I was able to create a cake for so it was extremely special!
Outside of Colhoun Creations, tell us about yourself?
Outside of work I am someone who spends her time by the coast, you’ll find me sea swimming throughout the year rain or sun!
Where can we find you? ( Web-site, Instagram )
You’ll find me mostly on Instagram and Tiktok.
