Sophie From The Cheltenham Cakery

Cheltenham Cakery is a small award winning bespoke cakery based in beautiful Regency Cheltenham, in the glorious Cotswolds.

Created in October 2011 ‘The Cakery’, as it has become affectionately known, is the accumulation of a creative background coupled with a love of all things baking (and food).

At The Cakery, they pride themselves on their attention to detail and ensuring that all clients receive a tailored, professional and bespoke service that caters for all their needs.

 

Tell us about your company and how you got started?

I started The Cheltenham Cakery in 2011 – it was the year I got married and I wanted to make my own wedding cake. My now husband was working nights so to keep myself busy I started cooking and baking in the evenings, I am fortunate that I have a granny that was a wonderful home baker. I started baking more in preparation for my wedding cake, I loved it and the rest they say is history.

When did you start baking?

As young as I can remember making everything from cakes to eclairs and homemade doughnuts. Do you make custom flavoured cakes? All of my recipes are family recipes – I’ve not picked up Mary Berry or Nigella and chosen a recipe. I have updated them through to today’s modern palette.

Can you cater for vegans and lactose guests?

I do offer Gluten free and dairy free – not as the main wedding cake but as accompanying cupcakes.

Do you deliver and install the cake?

I recommend my clients take me up on the delivery and venue set up for their wedding cake

What is your favourite cake and frosting combination?

I love chocolate and salted caramel closely followed by raspberry and prosecco, i’ve added a new flavour of Vanilla Latte to the menu which is yummy too – all cake really!!

Do you offer anything else thank cakes?

I do create cupcake bouquets which are wonderful all round and special occasion gifts, i do also create special occasion and corporate cakery

What tips or advice can you give to couples who are ordering their cake? 
If you have found your baker BOOK. I have had to turn away a lot of orders this year as I only commit to creating one bespoke wedding cake a week – this ensures that my client’s orders gets my fullest attention and is the masterpiece that they are expected.

Have you worked at Glenfall House wedding venue before?
Yes as a preferred supplier I have been to Glenfall numerous times, its a truly special venue and should be on all couples potential venue list!

Final question, and the most important, what is couples favourite cake flavour?
Chocolate and Salted Caramel – always a winner, Raspberry and Prosecco and Lime & Lime are also popular choices for summer weddings at the moment.
