I've always baked and I've always been creative, I love anything crafty, sewing, crochet, painting, anything that allows me to be creative. Finally, after years of baking for friends and family and over catering at every celebration I have finally given in to the advice of my wonderful husband and decided to launch La'l Bakes.
La'l Bakes as a name has been with us for what seems like forever, as has the idea of doing what I love as a business, it's just taken a few years to get here but from deciding to actually launch it was a bit of a whirlwind! All of a sudden there was a domain name, an email address, a Facebook page, my first 'real' order and finally this website. I think I baked more in those first few weeks than ever before and the house seemed permanently filled with cakes and sugar paste.
I love creating cakes that make people stop and say wow, I love seeing people tuck in to the cakes with a huge smile on their faces, it gives me that 'cake just out of the oven' warm and happy feeling and gives me the inspiration to try something new and different.
All of our cakes are baked at home and from fresh, quality ingredients, no additives to prolong their life just all the things you'd use if you were baking them yourself.
We can cater for specific dietary requirements, please contact us for further details.

Either classic Madeira, chocolate, lemon drizzle or caramel, made with butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, eggs and vanilla, cocoa or lemon. Each cake is filled and covered in american buttercream and then iced in fondant.

Rich fruit cakes, packed with fruit and nuts, covered with marzipan and fondant or royal icing. If you have a preference for a certain fruit the cake can be 'loaded', for example if you love cherries it could be cherry heavy cake fed with Kirsch.
