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.

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 Cake Wonders

Making Dreams a Reality

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!


Bespoke Bakes Big Break.

Hi all,

Just a heads up that the kitchen of Bespoke Bakes is closed from today through to next Monday for orders.

I will be checking my messages and shall endeavour to response as soon as possible.

A much needed break-away with the family.

Enjoy the sun, I will be doing!



Busy, Busy, Busy

So much going on – the website is up, running and generating lots of new inquiries, cakes are flying out of the kitchen of Bespoke Bakes at a rapid rate of knots and things are fantastically hectic!

Lots of updates on the way including the latest photographs and some awesome testimonies!

Thank you all for your support, for sharing my website and Facebook page, for your recommendations and, of course, your continued orders. It really is an exciting adventure to be on.

And here it is….

I’ve been waiting with great excitement for this to be finished and here it is!!

Introducing my brand new website –

I will be regularly updating it, showcasing all my new creations and sharing the stories behind them.

I look forward to hearing your views, enjoy!
