Here’s a selection!

Chocolate Heaven

Calling all you chocoholics!

Despite lots of available flavours the most requested has to be chocolate, made to our secret recipe this sponge just so moist and delicious!

A lot of the time the sponge is hidden beneath whichever themed creation has been requested – sometimes however it is very blatant!

Check out the slideshow of some of chocolate masterpieces – spaces booking up fast so make sure you get your order in to avoid disappointment.

Cakes for the boys

One for the boys

Cakes seem to be synonymous with females – true they probably are the instigators in sourcing and ordering them, but, with the right detail, cakes really can be ‘one for the boys’.

From specialist sports (nope we did the football one the other day so that’s staying off) to, quite frankly, risqué versions!!

Have a look through the slideshow – can’t see what you like? Bespoke Bakes live up to their name and will create your very own unique confection!!

Age is Just a Number

We’ve been showcasing some of our more ‘one off’ cakes recently, how about, for this blog, we concentrate on a more staple of creation – the number cake!

Sometimes, when you’re put on the spot to choose a cake your mind goes blank – never fear the number cake is here! Instant success, add to it the things the reciprocant  loves the best and you have a recipe for success!!

One for the ladies

Handbags at dawn!

Something I get asked for very often is cakes created into bags! Handbags, shopping bags, make-up bags and more!

Working with the client to ascertain their favourite design or store they are something I love to do.

Recently I undertook a special bag for a regular client – their daughter constantly has packages delivered so what better than a cake to honour this!

Having created lots of bags before I have to say this is the first time I’ve been asked to make a plastic packaging cake and, to be honest, I really wasn’t convinced!!

Baked in a delicious strawberry flavoured sponge, layered with jam and buttercream, covered in pink icing and decorated with the companies insignia it actually looked great – phew!

So delighted was the young lady that upon ‘tweeting’ the picture to the company she received shopping vouchers and I got global recognition!

Character cakes.

Character cakes

Every little girl and boy has their own favourite TV show, containing their ‘very best’ character, this can make it so easy for parents when deciding what to do for this year’s birthday cake!

I love to do these, to receive photos from the parents of the child receiving their dream cake makes me very happy!

I can undertake anything you like and there are so many options to choose from, I love to design my own bespoke creations based upon your vision and am certain you will be delighted with the end results!

When it comes to choosing a birthday cake for your child what do you go for?

What do they like? Novelty characters? Numbers? Football?

Aha! Football!

At Bespoke Bakes it is probably one of the favourites amongst the boys and we have produced so many of them, each one personalised to both the child and, of course, their choice of team.

With lots of design options and, more importantly flavours to choose from, make your son (or indeed daughter) a very happy football fan!

Wedding cakes – probably THE most nerve wracking of commissions!

Your wedding has to be one of the biggest days of your life and needs to be perfect.

The venue is booked, dress fitted, invites sent – thoughts turn to the extras, those finishing touches including – THE CAKE!

With such a variety available – styles, colours, flavours we offer a no obligation consultation to create the perfect cake around you and your vision (the lure of samples is always tempting).

Having undertaken several variations from the classic tiered design through to the newly fashionable ‘naked’ wedding cake with plenty of options in between, receiving such amazing feedback from the delighted wedding parties I am confident that I can offer you a delicious, bespoke creation to compliment your big day perfectly.

BB Birthday Cake Reminder Service

cake reminder service

As Bespoke Bakes gets more and more popular, it is getting harder and harder to accommodate everyone.

Therefore, I am in the process of setting up a ‘birthday cake reminder service’.

If you have had a celebration cake in the past then I have logged the date onto my calendar, all new customers will be automatically added.

Six weeks prior to the date I will send you a no-obligation reminder to give you time to think, discuss and hopefully place your order and giving me valuable notice.

If you don’t want to be part of this service then please let me know!
