Supplier Spotlight – Janet Mohapi-Banks
June 15th, 2011
After a very varied life including working as a croupier, singer/songwriter and computer programmer, I now own and run an award winning luxury cake business that has been featured in the UK’s leading wedding magazines and is recommended by some of the best hotels and venues in the country including The Ritz London.
I first started baking cakes with my Grandmother as soon as I was old enough to sit at the kitchen table, although the decorating aspect of cakes wasn’t developed until I had children of my own. As I am completely self-taught in the art of sugarcraft, my designs and style are quite unique.
As a company, Janet Mohapi-Banks differs from that of other people in our field, not only in the exquisite cake design and immaculate finish, but also in the personal customer care offered. Your wedding day is a very exciting and special time in your life and we want to help make every aspect of it as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. To this end we always travel to you for consultations and meetings and get to know you as the unique people you are.
Following a private consultation, all our cakes are designed and handmade to order using the finest ingredients available. Where possible, these are local, organic and / or fair-trade.
During the meeting where you have the chance to try some cake flavours, we design the cake together using samples of the dress, invitations, flowers or anything else that you would like to use to influence the design. This ensures that you are 100% happy and get a perfect and unique cake for your wedding as I believe that every wedding cake should be as unique as you are.
Before the big day, we liaise with you, your venue or wedding planner to organise the delivery and set-up arrangements ensuring that you don’t need to worry about a single aspect of your cake.
It’s not easy being a full-time mother to two young children and running a successful business. Fantastic time-management skills are required as well as the ability to work efficiently and effectively. It does of course help if you have a very supportive husband and wonderfully understanding children and I am lucky enough to have both!
Although predominantly working throughout London and Surrey, Janet Mohapi-Banks delivers cakes to discerning clients all over the UK.
