Welcome to Gourmandises

Creators of Luxury Desserts and Patisserie


Award winning luxury cakes and desserts enriched with French joie de vivre!

In French, gourmandises are sweet treats – little morsels of indulgence. From my Cambridgeshire kitchen, I create exquisite desserts, patisserie, and luxury wedding cakes that are guaranteed to bring delicious French flair to any occasion in London, Cambridge and East Anglia.

From towering golden croquembouches in cages of spun sugar and edible flowers, and delicately perfumed macarons in every colour of the rainbow, to rich chocolate gateaux and decadent pastries bursting with ripe fruit – everything is hand made using only the freshest ingredients.

“Corinne made my dads favourite – A croquembouche for his 60th birthday and it was delicious! Very professional business also, arranged delivery to the  Midsummer HouseMichelin restaurant on the day as we’re not local to Cambridge and it couldn’t have gone smoother. Many Thanks again”

Corinne at Gourmandises provided the most amazing Croquembouche for our wedding. It was stunning and made an amazing centre piece. It tasted delicious and our guests loved it. Corinne was great to work with, including coping with the distances involved and guiding us through the process. Could not recommend enough.

Corinne is absolutely amazing! She creates masterpieces that are almost too good to eat… Until you try them and then you just have to eat them all! She created a stunning collection of cakes for our wedding reception and despite ordering more than required there was nothing left at the end of the evening. Beautiful! Highly recommended, friendly, professional, inspired. Perfect!

Hand Made With Love!

“I love good food and certainly freshly made cakes“.

At home, every meal is a celebration and cakes are a big part of it as they always bring a big smile with friends and family. Gourmandises was created with these smiles in mind. Every cake is an invitation to be festive. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Bon appétit!” Corinne

Award winning!

I have been awarded three stars in the renowned Great Taste Awards. My cooking is inspired by my childhood on the island of Réunion (you can find out more about that here). My style takes the sophistication of Paris and combines it with the tropical vibrancy of my home. I love what I do, and am hugely proud to have had my flavours recognized with such a prestigious award.
