Octobers Winning Cake!

A little while ago I promised that every month I would choose my favourite cake.

Without further ado then here is my choice from Octobers many bakes…

A cake with a difference!

This cake was requested by a customer for her daughter’s birthday and is a little bit different as not only did it have to be egg free it was also to be modelled on the little girls favourite soft toy!


Being a stickler for detail I persevered, and this is the finished result!


I hope you agree that this is a good likeness – the birthday girl certainly did!

Octobers Offerings

Wow, what a busy month October was!


With a family holiday in the offing I was determined to ‘cut back’ on the amount of cake creations that month – I can never disappoint though so, with some very long days (and nights), I completed a delectable range of bespoke bakes!

Judging by  the reactions of my clients I am so, so glad I did!

With a full range of bakes in a variety of delicious flavours it seemed October was the month of birthdays – with an age range from the beautiful Poppy for her first birthday to a proper young lady Nikki on reaching her 18th all the way up to another milestone birthday of 65 for a regular customer, Ian!

As you can see there are many in between and I (and the recipients) are delighted with them.

An added extra this month was the creation of two sugar moulded, hand crafted Bingo ladies ….. wobble wobble.


Christening cakes

Baby’s special day.


We have written about weddings, of course birthday’s and in fact so much in between – these I don’t think have been covered yet.

Pretty in pink or baby blue, these christening cakes are made with love, made to be admired and made to be unforgettable.

Obviously not just for babies (or limited to pink and blue) we can create your vision just for you.

Check out the stunning selection below.

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

Number cakes.


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!!

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!



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!
