A little bit about us
It started with a passion for making cakes for our children's birthdays, we enjoyed the challenge that each cake brought and they became more elaborate each time! We often made cakes and cupcakes for our children’s schools to help them raise funds when they are having a cake sale and struggled to find decent boxes and cupcake cases for the cakes we designed that we went on a mission to find something new to display our creations!
Along this journey we found that we were not the only ones looking for something different, with a bit of colour and style that would help to transport our creations safely and make our cakes stand out from the crowd.
Established in 2012 we started our small family run business based in the village of Cressing in Essex to specialise in the cake decorating supplies sector. We gave you the option to have your order via delivery or we also offered a local click and collect service for customers wishing to save on delivery prices in Essex.
Our aim has been to give the fun and exciting world of cake making a wide variety and choice with products that are popular and also very competitively priced. Over time we have been expanding our ranges across all areas of cake making, display and sugar craft to give you the best selection possible.
With cake boxes, cake boards, decorating tools, sugar paste, cutters, moulds, edibles, personalised and themed card cake toppers, food dusting powders and colouring gels, essential sugar craft supplies, sprinkles, flower and modelling paste, cake dummies, icing and wafer edible image printing, cupcake boxes, sugar flowers, party bags, candles, cupcake cases in foil and paper.
Our cake boxes and cake boards come in many shapes and sizes, giving you maximum choice for any size cake.

There is also a wide range of ribbon available, satin, organza, sheer, grosgrain and curling ribbon in many colours which can be used in cakes and craft all available in our online shop.
In September 2017 we moved to premises with a bigger shop unit at lakes Innovation centre in Braintree and this has given us the ability to bring in more product lines and widen all the ranges we stock. This gave us the opportunity to allow you to shop with us in store so if your local to us then feel free to pop in and see us where you can see all the products we sell and purchase in store.
Our little ‘’cake shop’’ (that’s what our local customers call us) has grown so much in the last few years. Whether you're just making a birthday cake once a year or doing some cupcakes with your niece or nephew, then right up to the professional cake makers who make cakes for others too. We don’t personally make cakes, so you can’t order celebration cakes with us. But we do have a section in store where you're welcome to pick up local, registered cake makers business cards if you're in need of a cake.
Between the two of us we have 13 years of decorating experience in many areas and have made many cakes for our children and family. If you're in need of help with a cake you're making or you have never made one before then come see us for advice and hints or tips.
We support Parc Essex in Braintree a local charity for children with additional needs. You're welcome to support them too by putting your spare change in their collection box which you will find on our shop counter in store. We also support many local schools with summer fairs and bake sales throughout the year.
We run our own Facebook group which can be a wealth of information you can find it here.
