Funtastic meets Couture

Funtastic meets Couture is exactly what happened when Cheryl Harper Wilson embarked on a journey with the helping of inspirational characters who held compelling influence & knowledge, from the beginning of a journey, only a few years ago.

Children’s Parties & Workshops >>


Riviera’s natural thought process -Willy Wonka’s extraordinary magic (or should we say that of Roald Dahl), Heston Blumenthal’s foodpairing, Nigella Lawson’s memoir with food….& Grandma Harpers edible, humble & delightful helpings! Not forgetting a personal topping of childlike imagination, a sprinkle of creativity & a dollop of hard work – Riviera Couture was born!!

Captivating Cake Menu >>


“A few years ago, I baked my 1st artistic cake, following this scrumptious experience, I discovered a whole new World. It isn’t the World I live in daily, although it has many similarities. Nevertheless, it often feels closest to my world when it doesn’t appear that way at all? That world is humongous, yet is able to fit inside a single cake. I neither divulge or devour everything I create there, but what I choose to take with me is more whopper wedding cake precious than money can buy”

Eclectic Music Played…

My cakes do not come without their shortfalls, which in turn an enthusiastic affirmation puts right. However, my burden of expectation creates an enjoyable and plentiful satisfactory fulfillment within, whenever I create for others. Some may say I thrive on pressure, I say I strive for life and sharing of good. CHW

★★★★★ I was completely blown away by my fantastic horse cake. Cheryl had clearly taken everything I asked for (and more) into account. The cake well and truly exceeded my expectations. It was clever, unique and tasted amazing. The entire service was excellent from start to finish with some lovely personal touches added in. I would not hesitate to recommend riviera.
