Bellissimo Wedding Cakes by Helen Mansey
We take a look at some stunning cakes from award-winning cake designer, Helen Mansey.
Helen Mansey discovered her passion for cake decorating while she was taking time off from her career as a professional chef to raise her young family.
With a background in fashion design and cookery, her creative instincts fuelled the conception of her successful wedding cake business, Bellissimo Cakes, based in Surrey, UK.
Helen’s unique style and clear talent shone through when she was awarded a Gold Award at the Squires Kitchen 25th Wedding Anniversary Cake competition, and was invited to exhibit at The Cake & Bake Show 2012 to demonstrate her skills in piping lace pieces.
Helen is a regular contributor to Wedding Cakes, Cakes & Sugarcraft and Bake & Decorate magazines and her work is often featured in glossy bridal magazines and blogs.
In 2012, she was shortlisted in the Hitched Breakthrough Awards for Best New Wedding Cake Designer and has gone on to judge for the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards.
Helen now teaches at Squires Kitchen International School in Farnham, Surrey, and was one of the contributing authors to the Gourmand Best UK Cookbook for Professionals 2014, The Art of Sugarcraft (B. Dutton Publishing).
She is also the creator of Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers, a cake smoother set for producing crisp edges on cakes.
