Celebration Cakes for all your Special Occasions

I have enjoyed making celebration cakes for over for 30 years since my sister asked me to do her cake when she got married, how could I refuse? I attended cake decoration classes and my skills have amazed many people over the years. Tastes, flavours and designs have certainly changed since I began. It is something I enjoy doing and love to try out new creations, especially the novelty designs that certainly give me a challenge to create a “wow!”

I take great care to provide cakes made from fresh ingredients and do not use cake mixes. The cake not only looks sensational but tastes delicious too! Food intolerances for example, glutenfree, egg-free, dairy-free and vegan, don’t have to be a problem as I have created recipes that cater for all dietary requirements.

So, whatever the occasion, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings, engagements, weddings, retirements or indeed any special event, I am happy to advise and sure I can provide you with a suitable cake for your celebration.


N.B. Please let me know on ordering about any food intolerances.

Choose Your Design

Celebration Cakes

A wide selection of children and adults’ novelty cakes are available, take a look at the albums. Three-dimensional designs and shaped cakes for children's party themes i.e. fairy castles, characters, cars, animals, etc. Corporate Cakes can be formal with a company logo, decorative with sugar flower designs or humorous. With handpainted pictures and sugar paste character models.

Wedding Cakes

Make your Wedding Day special by choosing a wedding cake that is perfect for the day of your dreams. A good place to start on the design is the colours and style of your wedding and bridesmaid dresses, the colour scheme of your flowers . Wedding cakes are individually designed and priced to suit your special requirements for size, number of tiers, type of decoration, colour and price. Novelty themed cakes and humorous designs can be catered for. A sample of fabric can be helpful to match up the colours.

Ordering Your Cake

Celebration Cakes

View the albums of designs on offer for inspiration and ideas ring me or send an email to discuss your requirements sending your pictures and details and I can give you a quote of the cost. I am willing to travel out to you in your own home or meet up to discuss your requirements; flavours, sizes, and design ideas however conventional or unusual! I can bring some tasting samples for you to try over a cup of tea.


As soon as you know the date of your celebration, you can ring or email me and place your order. Once I have the date saved, if you are uncertain about the design you will still have enough time to decide on the design and final details up to the week before the event.


Celebration cakes - At least 3 weeks is normally required for fruitcakes, as they need time for maturing. Sponge and chocolate cakes need to be ordered up to 1 week in advance. Wedding Cakes - At least 3 to 6 months notice to avoid any disappointment during the busy wedding season. Do not worry if you have not finalised colour or design as you can do this up to one month before the required date. Last minute orders are undertaken but please do not be disappointed if I am too busy. However, miracles are sometimes possible!


I require a deposit of a third of the cost as a deposit, returnable if you can give me a week’s cancellation notice for celebration cakes and a month for Wedding Cakes. Payment is required before delivery. For wedding cakes, arrangements will need to be made for delivery to your wedding venue. Please note I am unable to take visa and debit card payments and would accept cash or cheques.
