Valeri Valeriano & Christina Ong

Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes is a multi-award winning cake company based in London. Founded in June 2011, the company is headed by cake artists and best friends, Valeri and Christina. It was by sweet accident that these ladies discovered their passion and talent. On Mother’s Day 2011, they wanted to give their two friends whom they consider their “second-mums” something special but not expensive and decided to bake for them...and they have never stopped since. Renowned globally for their edible works of art using nothing else but buttercream as their decorating medium, Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes has been featured in numerous well known blogs, local and international news, magazines, TV Shows and have showcased their masterpieces as well as demonstrated in some of UK’s biggest exhibitions. Valeri and Christina take immense pride in their mastery of buttercream and their goal is to revive and modernize this age-old art.
