I hand over to Natalie O’Dowd to tell you all about this delicious wee brand…

When and why did you start your Company?

“I created YLC in 2011 after making my son’s 1st birthday cake.”

“It was a real labour of love and took far more hours than I care to remember.”

What inspires you?

“All sorts of things inspire me.”

“Whether its incorporating the couple’s personality or their styling details or right through to visual inspiration in every day images.”

“I use Instagram a lot – Never for replicating another’s designers work {a big no no for me}. It’s usually bridal gown or fashion houses, or interior company.”

“Sometimes it’s an amazing table scape – right down to the tableware.”

“Obviously there are current trends that can lead designers of which I sometime incorporate, but I love to predict and lead trends where possible.”

What is your greatest achievement?

“I’m not sure if winning The Wedding Industry Award – Regional Cake Designer 2015 is – Its probably what’s expected to be.”

“However, I genuinely think the fact that in such a highly competitive field I’ve found my niche.”

“Giving myself the complete freedom to design whatever I love – this draws clients with a similar approach.”

“I now feel YLC has a sustainable business that allows me to have a job I love and the flexibility of self-employment.”

What do you see as the future of your Company?

“In all honesty to keep doing what I’m doing – being unique regardless of what others are doing.”

“I would love a beautiful boutique cake store too, selling daily sweet treats alongside my cake design business.. when the time is right.”
