Established in 2013, Vintage Cake Fairy is a bespoke cake company run by Karen Pemberton, specialising in beautifully designed, hand crafted traditional and non-traditional wedding cakes and celebration cakes for all occasions.

Karen initially carved out a successful career in London as a stage prop designer, but after moving back to her Yorkshire roots decided that her passion for baking and design could be combined to create Vintage Cake Fairy. So after months of training and recipe testing, Karen set about creating a collection of eye catching, imaginative bespoke wedding cakes.

Vintage Cake Fairy are proud to have been awarded a number of Gold and Silver awards for sugar craft skills at the prestigious Cake International Birmingham between 2013-2017, and has been a finalist at the I do wedding awards, The North of England Wedding Awards hosted by the Wedding Guide and they were also Regional Finalists at last year’s Wedding Industry Awards. They have been featured in national Wedding Magazines and other sugar craft publications and are preferred suppliers at some of Yorkshires favourite wedding venues.


For my wedding I wanted a Harry Potter theme and when we met with Karen and showed and told her our ideas she drew a sketch of what we wanted and later sent me a detailed drawing of what she was going to create for us. The picture alone was amazing and we were so excited to see the finished cake. When we saw it we were speechless.... I don’t even know the best words to describe just how amazing it was. Karen is so so creative and it was such an honour to have her create our cake. We could not have chosen anyone more perfect. All of our guests have told us that they will never ever forget the cake. Anyone reading this really needs to see the pictures of it... it was so realistic that some guests didn’t even know it was a cake.... truly amazing. Thank you so much vintage cake fairy.Caroline Green
Absolutely amazing wedding cake!! I recommend Karen 100%! From the moment we met Karen for our consultation we just knew that she understood our wedding theme “ glitz and glam” and our bespoke wedding cake was more than what we ever imagined! Disco glitter ball, lace, colours to match our wedding outfits, even a figurine of our rabbit! We’ve had so many compliments on how great the cake tasted and wasn’t much cake left by the end of the night! One guest said they had 8 slices it was that good!! Thank you Karen from the bottom of our hearts.Rebecca Lee
Karen was fab throughout the whole process. During our first meeting, it was clear she had a real passion for making our vision a reality, and offering ideas when the groom and myself had a difference of opinions on certain things. Karen also presented us with what was probably the toughest choice during the wedding planning - choosing just four of the amazing flavours on offer! On the big day, the cake appeared (almost like magic) in the room set up for the wedding breakfast and we were blown away (as were the guests!) by the detail put into it. It was almost a shame to cut it, it looked so amazing! Luckily it tasted just as good as it looked! Thank you so much Karen! I will be recommending your cakes at every chance I get!Amy Louise Fielden
