‘5 Minutes with…’ is a series of short interviews with some of the esteemed vendors listed on our directory. We get to know the brilliant people behind the brands we love. Today, we meet Suzy of Qcakes.
Suzy is the founder of Qcakes – creative Wedding and Celebration Cake business which started over 4 years ago, dedicated to producing Modern wedding cakes, celebration cakes and desserts. An artist at heart, Suzy fell in love with the art of making cakes, this then grew to become a passion along the way. She first started with making cute little cupcakes for family and friends. Many of them encouraged her to start a business to share her baked goods on a larger scale. Ultimately she caved in! Suzy lives in Croydon, surrey with her husband and is a Compliance officer for an Energy and Insurance Broker.
