Meet the Top Cake Maker in Essex

I’m a one woman cake maker in Essex single handedly designing, creating, quoting and administrating the company.

In 2015 my passion for baking came out in full swing. My second daughter was born with lots of allergies and my challenges with food began. This is why I took baking to a new level so I could safely cater for her needs. As my skills and passion progressed, the Essex Cake Shop grew into the business I have created to this day.

The Humble Beginnings of a Cake Maker

I started out making cupcakes for fun over many years, all from learning how to make a sponge in my Nan’s kitchen as a child. My recipes have developed a lot over time but my roots are always with the way my Nan taught me all those years ago.

A Cake Maker with Passion

My love for making cupcakes and celebration cakes, has grown to a huge passion for making designs out of the box. Making illusion / realistic looking cakes are super fun. Wedding cakes are a huge honour to design and create. It is an amazing feeling to be asked to design and be part of such a special day.


I attend events across Essex that showcasing all things baking, cake decorating and sugar craft. Gain insight into my products, stock your shelves with lots of goodies and come see some of my spectacular cake creations and displays, plus many more treats for your taste buds!
