» ProfileBased in Helmsley, we create special occasion cakes to clients throughout North Yorkshire and beyond. We opened our doors in 2008 and have over 20 years of experience in baking and sugar craft.
Working in a quaint craft workshop at Helmsley with views across open fields is enough to inspire us to design and create works of art. Customers constantly tell us that our cakes are too good to cut. We are fully qualified in baking, sugar craft and have our intermediate hygiene certificate.
We provide a professional bespoke celebration cake service to anybody who walks through the door. The service is designed to create the perfect cake, be it in taste and decoration, enabling customers to have the perfect centre piece for their wedding, birthday, christening, anniversary, or even designer buns for a fashion show. We enjoy creating new designs to complement the character of the customer and give their personality to the cake.
Having entered exhibitions successfully in the past we create bespoke cakes using only the best ingredients. Choose from a choice of sponges to rich fruit cakes to croquantbouche, decorated using Belgian chocolate, sugar paste or Royal icing. The range of products are available from the workshop or can be delivered to the venue. Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 9am -3pm, evenings or weekends.
We have many City and Guild qualifications in baking and sugar craft up to the advanced City and Guilds sugar craft certificate which included designing pieces for use with chocolate, intricate Royal icing, Sugar flowers, modelling and boiled and spun sugar.
» Our CakesAll About Our Cakes (This is the yummy bit!)
Although it sounds obvious, we cannot stress enough that the way your cake tastes is just as important as the way it looks.
All our cakes are made here at the craft workshop from the highest quality ingredients. There is a choice of:
Our sponge cakes range from rich, dark chocolate, to delicate lemon or a deliciously grown-up coffee & walnut. Of course, a plain sponge cake is always available!
Sponge cakes can be filled with a variety of fillings. Jam and buttercream is always popular, or you might opt for tangy lemon gooey chocolate buttercream or... our temptingly yummy chocolate ganache made from the finest Belgian chocolate and rich cream.
To make the choice even more difficult for you we make our ganache in white, milk and dark chocolate and these can be flavoured to suite your palette from brandy through to fruity.
Our moist fruit cakes are made with butter, muscovado sugar, vine fruits, ground almond and the freshly grated rind and juice of orange and lemon. Once baked a generous helping of brandy is added and the cakes are wrapped and left to mature.
We can use any of three main decorative mediums on your cake, to suit you and your design. These are:
Fruit cakes can be made without nuts if required.
If you have any special dietary requirements, do let us know - we will try and accommodate everyone.
We are happy to provide samples of cake on request so that you can taste the quality for yourself prior to committing an order. We have confidence in our cakes!
We love a challenge! If you have a zany idea for a cake, well make it for you. Please talk to us. It costs nothing and were only too pleased to listen and help.
You are welcome to visit us at our studio but please call first to check we are not out delivering another lovely cake!
Our business is based on excellent customer care. We dont need a charter. We just believe our customers are very important. Many return time and again for another Cake. That says so much. Do read our reviews they are our best advertisement.

I've had a wonderful 70th birthday cake which tasted delicious and also a chocolate pirate ship for a special six year old, they were both beautiful, delivered on time and made both granny and son feel very special.
