>>Why choose me to create your cake?
I am a Food Technology teacher by profession and also spent three years in the Cake Decorating department of Bettys Craft Bakery, Harrogate. One of my proudest achievements there was to have worked on a Jubilee Cake for Buckingham Palace.
After leaving teaching I decided to concentrate on my cakes again and Cakes by Design was set up as a home based business in 2010.
My business is registered, I have Level 2 certificate in Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering and a 5* rating for Food Safety and Kitchen Hygiene as awarded by the Food Standards Agency after the inspection of my premises.
I create cakes for all occasions: Weddings, Anniversaries, Christenings and Birthdays and many more.
My aim is to make your celebration even more special.
I offer free, unhurried consultations and will enjoy meeting with you as much as making your cake! You may already have ideas, or selected images; otherwise I can offer suggestions and we can design the cake together. Alternatively, if you know what you want, the design and details can usually be finalised by phone or email.
I make all my own sugar flowers and cake toppers, so all decorations are unique and personalised.
All cakes are freshly made to order and I use only the finest ingredients. I pride myself on attention to detail, creating everything by hand.
I can accommodate the less severe food allergies or intolerances but, I’m afraid, cannot guarantee a nut free kitchen.
I am happy to take orders from customers across the locality including: Burley in Wharfedale, Otley, Menston, Guiseley, Baildon, Ilkley, Addingham and Skipton. I am available for delivery, which is free within a 5 mile radius.
Looking for a little inspiration? Call me today to arrange a personal consultation to discuss your own ideas and browse a portfolio of designs.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
