I can’t believe it’s March already of 2021… and it is that time where many small business owners write about themselves with ‘meet the maker’.
This year I have decided to join ‘the club’ of meet the makers and do a daily post on Facebook and Instagram all about myself. So I thought it would be fitting to also write on here about myself and my little cakery. I promise to keep it short!
I am a 40 year old mum and wife, whose cake business started as baking cakes for my own child many years ago. I would post pictures on my Facebook page and get many lovely comments of “Wow, did you make that?” and “Could you make my son/daughter a birthday cake?” I realised that I had a talent for making great tasting homemade cake and an artistic flair for sugar craft. I’m not saying by any means that I’m the greatest cake baker of all time, as their many more talented people out in the cake business, but I could fit into the cake making business. 8 years on and I’ve built up a good client base of returning customers.
My brand is custom cakes, all homemade using the finest ingredients with no added preservatives. Made to individuals specifications for someone special day. I like to think that my style is contemporary but I will put my hand to any style and give any a go.
So to keep this short, today’s meet the maker post should be “newest make”. So this week’s bake was this Costa coffee celebration cake. The brief was from a Danielle’s husband and children, to make a 40th birthday cake of a Costa Coffee shop front, specifically the one she used to frequent before lockdown.
I am sorry this week I haven’t got a recipe to share, its been a busy week with homemade custom cakes. Please keep watching and listening, if you are podcast for hopefully new recipes soon. Thank you Em x
