Ophelia, the beautiful but tragic noblewoman in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, plays muse to Nabila Asyiqin and Aiman Asyraf of Ophelia Bakes. “It is such a beautiful name that represents our feminine, romantic cakes,” say the spouses. “Our whole aesthetic evokes the Elizabethan and Victorian eras, hence we love experimenting with vintage elements from old paintings and ornaments; even the simplest everyday objects were crafted with a different level of intricacy then.”
Romantics at heart, Nabila and Aiman particularly enjoy taking engagement and wedding cake requests. “It is a sentimental feeling, knowing you are a part of someone’s special day, and that our creations will be preserved in their photographs and memories for years to come—it is such an honour.”
Speciality: Vintage cakes with dark or floral aesthetics.
TATLER TIP: Some standout creations by Ophelia Bakes resemble music boxes, flower vases and PreRaphaelite paintings—edible works of art worth commemorating.
