Welcome to my website! My name is Sally and I'm an award winning cake artist specialising in creating elegant and delicious wedding cakes that are designed and created from my home, which is just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Lake District.
My passion lies with creating cakes that are little slices of edible art. Using ganache and buttercream as my primary mediums, I love exploring different textures and adorning cakes with beautiful arrangements of fresh and dried flowers.
" Uniquely elegant and full of flavour "
Making jam tarts with my Mum at a young age is one of my earliest and fondest memories. All our birthday cakes were homemade growing up and I guess baking has always been a part of my life. Everything I have learnt has either been passed down to me or discovered through experimenting. There's something very rewarding about learning new techniques this way even when they don't go to plan, as nine out of ten times you end up accidentally discovering something new. Even every recipe has been tried and tested to perfection (it's a tough job but someone's got to do it). And now I get to pass my baking skills onto my sons, Alex and Ellis, in the hope that they too become their fondest memories.
I am very lucky to be able to create all my cakes at home in a designated kitchen, although I'm pretty sure there's a little bit of my business spread across every room in the house, much to my husbands delight. Becoming a cake maker wasn't my original goal, I initially went to Uni to study Photography, which I have to say has really come in handy, and then I completed my PGCE and taught for two years before taking the plunge to switch careers. And that's where I am now, five years into being a full time cake maker and I wouldn't change it for the world.
