About Joanne and The Chic Cake Boutique

My name is Joanne and I’m now partime student(student card and all…..) of Food Photography in CIT.

When I’m not studing I am a mother of two kids, Aislinn and Jack, a wife to Richard, and owner of The Chic Cake Boutique. The Chic Cake Boutique is an award winning wedding cake company, which I established in 2014.

All my wedding cakes are layered and filled with a smooth Italian meringue buttercream. With the addition of refreshing citrus curds, sweet conserves or delicate caramel. cakes can be paired with a variety of nuts, fruits and spices to add a little texture.

Cakes can be covered in a decadent chocolate ganache andcovered in a white fondant icing and simply decorated with fresh or sugar flowers. This style of cake will express that clean stylish finish.

Semi naked cakes will emphases the rustic appeal when filled with buttercream and curds and can be decorated with seasonal fruits and fresh organic flowers. This style of cake definitely very popular and exposes the cakes natural beauty.
