About Me

Hi, My name is Connie.
The face behind Connie Thompson Cake Design.
I started this business back in 2019 when I stumbled into baking.

How I Got Started

I wanted to bake a cake for my little one turning 6. I got my mum round for a trial run and we made a MESS of my kitchen!! The cake wasn’t a complete disaster so I decided to make her actual birthday cake. Well… I think I used every decoration I could find!! It was terrible but I remember being so proud of it!!  The cake got so much attention at my little ones birthday party ( and I honestly don’t know why ) that someone asked me to do them a baby shower cake!

I thought absolutely not!! I wouldn’t want the responsibility of that. I did however decide to start baking cupcakes.. something a little more manageable.

I got mad into flavours! I wanted the cupcakes to really stand out and be more than just your average cupcake. I make all my own fillings which I believe makes a world of difference.

My Development

The more I toyed around with cupcakes the more I enjoyed baking and wanted to venture into cakes. So I started saying yes to friends and family when they’d ask me for a cake. In September of 2020 I quit my job to pursue baking as a career. Hit with various lockdowns and restrictions it was a rocky start! Full of ups and downs.

I used my time in lockdowns to really narrow down my style of cake and focus on the things I love the most. Which was creating beautiful modern eye-catching celebration cakes, wedding cakes and hand crafted sugar flowers

Fast forward to now, and I'm doing everything I love!
I Won Wedding Cake Designer of the year
Co.Antrim, 2021, Winner
Which for me was such an achievement for the short space of time id broke into the wedding industry.

Thank You...

I take so much pride in creating beautiful bespoke cakes for such special occasions in peoples lives. 

I am so very grateful to all my wonderful customers who order off me time and time again and to my wonderful couples that trust me to create their dream wedding cakes. 

Thank you for supporting me small business,

Do you put the flowers on the cake or the florist?

Although the flowers come from your wedding florist, it will always be me that dresses the cake.

How do I book?

If you have browsed my gallery and feel my style suits what you envision for your wedding cake,
then please, submit and enquiry form with all your details and we will be in touch to progress your

When should I book?

My honest answer is as soon as you have your date and venue booked
Wedding suppliers get booked up so fast, sometimes unto 2 years in advance, so if your certain
my cakes are the style you like and I’m the cake maker for you then get booked in.
You don’t need to know exactly how you are wanting your cake, this image and desire will change
so many times.
We finalise the design of the cake about 3 months before the wedding so just relax knowing your
booked with the right cake maker.

Do you do themed/novelty cakes?

This is not a style I enjoy or feel passionate about
I don’t do character models or animals etc
If you browse my gallery you will get a feel for the style of cake I do and that I pour my whole
heart and soul into.

Do you have any tips for a keen hobby baker?

I have some great recipes available to buy in the recipe section.
These are recipes I feel I’ve perfected, that make my baking tasks easier and that get amazing
feedback from every time from my customers!
