London based cake design studio A.R.D Bakery specializes in bespoke cakes and chocolates with a unique, graphic style. The bakery is the creation of Alison Dunlop who has a Sculpture degree at Glasgow School of Art and an MA in fashion accessories at the prestigious Royal College of Art. She spent 10 years working in the industry designing bags, shoes, and jewelry for many high-end brands before moving into cake design. She states:
I come from a family of home bakers, famed at the local fetes and bake sales, but hadn't considered it as a career until maternity leave sparked an interest in experimenting how to put together classic baking with a design-led high-end fashion aesthetic. Further experimentation in chocolate work led incorporating bold, graphic patterns, strong colors and a fun playful look.Dunlop combines bold graphic prints with hand-painted chocolate work to create her unique style with inspiration coming from architecture, lighting design, textiles, graphic design as well as print and sculpture.
