Cressida Bell

As the daughter of the renowned art historian and artist Quentin Bell, and granddaughter of artist Vanessa Bell of the infamous Bloomsbury Set, it seems inevitable that Cressida Bell would be greatly influenced by her creative upbringing. Having trained at Central St Martins and The Royal College of Art, Cressida worked as a textile and decorative artist forging her own individual style, with a bold use of colour, painterly imagery and geometric patterns. She now offers an innovative and contemporary approach to the art of cake decorating, with intricate and embellished designs all fashioned from a range of edible and extraordinary decorations such as candied fruit and rose petals. Inspired by her father’s elaborately decorated cakes produced on festive occasions, Cressida has compiled a collection of her best cake creations in her book, Cressida Bell’s Cake Designs: Fifty Fabulous Cakes. Couverture commissioned Cressida to design and create an amazing decorative cake in honour of our 15th anniversary and to coincide with National Cake Week. Alongside signed copies of her book, we will be hosting an in store cake decorating Master Class for our customers on Wednesday the 8th October where Cressida will offer an insight into her creative and inspirational techniques.
