Buy a cake from One Fine Day Cakes and you will be treated like royalty, because the girls who run this company have made a cake for the Queen.
Selina and Salome, both lecturers at City of Glasgow College were asked to design and bake a cake to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. They took on this nerve-wracking task, did their research and got every tiny detail spot on. The whole process took months and they presented their cake to Prince Charles and Camilla, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, when they visited the College. After which, the cake was specially packaged and delivered to The Queen herself.
So, it’s far to say, these girls know a thing or two about cakes. Selina has an impressive background in baking which has taken her from working for a large supermarket chain to various local bakeries to sailing the oceans with the QE2. Salome ran her own business and they met at City of Glasgow College where Selina is a full-time lecturer and Salome teaches part-time. Working together to craft HRH’s cake made them realise they had all the ingredients to start their own business.
After looking at various options they eventually bought over One Fine Days in Glasgow, from the owner who was selling the business.
They held an open day launch in June where we could see just how creative these girls can be. If you’re looking for a special occasion cake with the wow factor you can have the most elaborate combination of colour and design or you can equally choose something with classic, elegant lines with a twist of colour, ribbons and bows. And there’s absolutely no point having a stand-out cake that’s all style and no substance and when you serve it up to your guests the taste doesn’t live up to the promise. All the cake samples on display tasted amazing, from classic Victoria sponge, chocolate, red velvet, carrot cake and lemon, all were beautifully light and delicious.
Here’s a selection of the amazing designs on display.
