Hi, my name is Alex and I love making bespoke cakes and bakes for your special occasions.
As a child, my mum always handmade my birthday cakes and this is where my love of
baking began. I began baking with my mum at an early age and continued making
occasional cakes and bakes for family and friends until my boys were born, when I
decided to start 'Shadow Cakes'. Although professionally a part-time primary school teacher and mother of two, I really enjoy creating new designs of fondant and buttercream cakes for all occasions.
All my bakes are made from scratch, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
I have a 5star food hygiene rating and hold a level 2 food hygiene certificate, an allergy awareness certificate and am a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild.
I hope you enjoy seeing a selection of my previous bakes - as all bakes are bespoke please do get in contact for further information and prices!
I really enjoy challenging myself with new designs so please let your imagination go wild!

I was very proud to be selected by Theo Paphitis to join his small business network this year.
