HIGHLY COMMENDED BAKER 2020
CAKEZ BUSINESS OWNER
MUMMY OF TWO
The first thing to say is "hello" and to thank you for visiting my website.
After years of experience in cake artistry; I have now found my niche. I specialize in making stand-out cakes with a difference. Whether your cake is for your wedding day, an important corporate celebration, or a big number birthday, if you want that "wow" factor, a querky cake, a bespoke cake with a difference, then Cakez is where you need to be. Cakez specializes in varied sugarcraft techniques including sugarpaste modelling and edible painting. These techniques allow me to create toppers, plaques, or images for your cake which could be wedding couples in caricature form, animals, fictional characters, and many more.
I've had the pleasure of making so many wonderful cakes and loved every moment of creating them. Along this journey I've also realised how personal making cakes is; it's not only a cake or a tasty treat for your celebration, but my cake art creates a memory of your special day. Making cakes is not only my passion, but sharing those cakes with my clients helps them to enjoy their day for many years after too.
I started my cake business, Cakez, in 2018 and am still loving every moment. To be able to meet so many amazing people, asking me and trusting me to design their dream cake, spending my days discussing flavours, styles, weddings, and large event details - is just the cherry on top - pun intended!
This all started when my son, Archie, wanted to make a birthday cake for Daddy. We made a simple vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream and covered it completely in rainbow sprinkles. Archie loved his first baking experience with me, I loved baking with him, and everybody at the party loved eating the cake - and were especially surprised to see rainbow coloured sponge inside too. So that simple moment was the start of this crazy journey to my own business; a colourful birthday cake present made by mother and son. I went on to make a minion cake for my dad, then a floral cake for my mum, and before I knew it, I had friends and family asking me to make cakes, and being recommended to their friends. From there everything has boomed!
Next came the day when I decided to turn this hobby that I loved into my very own business; Cakez. In September 2018 my business took off. That was the month that I registered my business, achieved a Health and Safety Level 2 in Food Hygiene, and received my 5* hygiene rating. It became official and in that month I opened my kitchen doors to the public - you gorgeous bunch!
All of my cakes are made fresh to order and are fully personalised and designed for you.
I started by saying "thank you" for visiting my website. Now I would like to say "thank you" for joining me on my cake creating journey!
