Our aim is to give you the perfect centrepiece for your perfect day
Where our story began
Sweet Satisfaction is a vibrant and creative company, based in the South West of England, providing beautifully handcrafted cakes which are individually tailored to suit each client.
The company is made up of Rachel Bowering and Nicole Sexton, who both have a passion for cake making and decorating, specialising in beautiful sugar craft work and novelty cakes.
Rachel is a highly accomplished pastry chef with over 20 years in the catering industry, including working at the prestigious Savoy Grill in London, White's Gentlemen's Club and the Queen Elizabeth II cruise liner. Since then Rachel has headed up the pastry section of a prestigious four star establishment in Devon. During her career Rachel has continued to develop her skills in floral sugar craft, by attending numerous further training courses.
Nicole is also a trained pastry chef, originally from South Africa, where she was trained to a high standard in cake icing and floral art. Nicole left South Africa as a Chef de Partie in 2005 and has since worked in four star establishments in the UK. Nicole has also been developing her sugar craft and gained a Silver Medal in Floral Sugarcraft at the International Cake Competition.
Our standards could not be higher
Although we are based in the South West we believe in exacting international standards. We use only the finest ingredients and tried and tested recipes.
All of our figurines and floral sugarcraft work is hand crafted, individually and uniquely designed just for you.
We have both won numerous awards for our work in the catering industry and are always striving to improve our craft. We uphold extremely high standards and will do our very best to ensure that you receive a stunningly beautiful cake, whatever the occasion.
Your special celebration is special to us too – we would love to provide you with the cake of your dreams!
A few words about my wonderful friend and business partner, Rachel
For those of you that don’t know, Sweet Satisfaction was run by two great friends and business partners, Rachel (pictured) and myself, Nicole. Unfortunately – I am devastated to tell you – Rachel was diagnosed with Cancer and, very sadly, was no longer able to work. This understandably, came as a huge shock to us both. Rachel put up a tremendous fight against her cancer for a year, but sadly passed away on the 6th July 2019. She leaves behind an 8 year old son and a wonderful husband.
Sweet Satisfaction would not exist without Rachel - we were very much a team- she wasn't just my business partner but the other half of me, my wonderful friend.
To say that I am going to miss Rachel working alongside me is a huge understatement, but I would like to reassure you that I will be continuing to run the business as Rachel and I would have done together - with the same exacting standards as always.
I would like to sincerely thank all our clients - past, present and future - that have, and will be, such a pleasure to work with. I will carry on running Sweet Satisfaction alone and will continue our high standards in Rachel's honour. She was very proud of what we achieved and I plan to continue to make her proud.
