Butter & Bodoni a wedding cake studio based in Edinburgh, Scotland and is the artistic outlet for cake lover and designer, Lauren Rand. Ever since she was a child, Lauren has had two epic loves that have battled for her attention – her love of baking and her passion for art and design. Only later in life did Lauren skillfully combine these into the lovechild known as Butter & Bodoni.

Lauren’s journey begins in the arts, as a graphic designer in Toronto, Canada. Over her 10+ years in the industry, she cultivated a strong design aesthetic and honed her skills for composition, balance, and colour. During those busy and colourful years, she had the pleasure to work with some amazing studios full of incredibly talented designers — even winning some awards for herself along the way. Art and design has always been her home — a place where she could express herself and take joy in creating a more beautiful and colourful world. But despite this, she couldn’t help but feel drawn to the sugary side of life. With the support of her wonderful husband, she decided to go back to school and retrain as a Cake Designer. Lauren graduated with honours from the Bonnie Gordon School of Confectionary Arts and her life as a cake artist truly began.

Lauren has been working in the wedding industry for over 5 years, on both the graphic design and cake design side. As a graphic designer, she was a part of the incredibly talented team at WedLuxe. This gave Lauren a unique insight into the luxury wedding industry. There is immense creative energy that is generated when like-minded vendors and industry creatives collaborate. Being a part of this wonderfully creative and innovative team was a true highlight for Lauren and her burgeoning career in the wedding industry. With this creative fire burning, she made the decision to move back to Edinburgh and begin her life as a full-time cake designer. Upon her return to Scotland Lauren was thrilled to join the team of epically talented cakers at Liggy’s Cake Company. During her time at Liggy’s she continued to hone her skills, creating beautiful wedding and celebrations cakes with the wonderful team of cakers. Lauren decided to leave Liggy’s near the end of 2019 to devote herself full time to Butter & Bodoni.

Butter & Bodoni is a culmination of all of Lauren’s experiences and creative endeavours. Her passion is creating bespoke, design-driven cakes and confections for the modern, creative couple.

What is Bodoni?

Bodoni is one of my favourite fonts and references my roots as a graphic designer. I am and always have been utterly obsessed with typography. Have I watched Helvetica at least a hundred times? Do I own a 648 page book dedicated to the love of Fraktur fonts? Does the sight of perfectly kerned letterforms bestill my beating heart? Hell yes to all of the above!”
