About the cakes ...

If it is wedding cake, birthday cake or Christening cake, it's the personal touch that makes it special and very different from a shop-bought off-the-shelf cake. If your ideas are for vintage, contemporary, funny or a classic theme, theCakeWorks will produce a design to delight your guests. All of my cakes are freshly home-baked for your order and can be in any variety of flavours. I can also cater for specific dietary requirements such as gluten-free. Made with the freshest of ingredients, the cakes taste as amazing as they look.
