Hello... My name's Karen & I am the owner and baker at Cakes Simply.
Cakes Simply is simply all about the cakes! - I have always been passionate about baking, since my Grandma taught me to bake a lemon drizzle cake, the same recipe I use today.
I studied home economics, as it used to be called, and left university not sure where to go next. I ended up trying various avenues of work and have now gone full circle, back to what I started out with in Grandma's kitchen, baking all sorts of cakes, experimenting with flavours and also selling quite a few a long the way!
Like I mentioned earlier, Cakes Simply is simply all about the cakes! - I focus on the combination of flavours and textures, using simple finishing touches to complete the product. You will find good, homemade, delicious traditional cakes with a few quirky options available! Also available are gluten free and vegan options. Please ask for further details.
I have recently started posting welshcakes all over the UK which is proving very popular as a gift or "thinking of you" option.
Also unique to Cakes Simply, is the option to buy quarter cakes. I have discovered there are many cake lovers out there who feel it is too much of a temptation by buying a whole cake, so they miss out on the opportunity to have any fresh homemade cake. Then they end up buying less satisfying options from the supermarket.
There is also the option to purchase a cake subscription as a gift for a friend or family member, for either 6 months or 12 months. This provides your chosen recipient with a voucher explaining the subscription, following on with a lucky dip quarter cake delivered to their door each month for the chosen duration.
Here at Cakes Simply, you are welcome to make purchases from just one quarter of a cake, to any amount catering for all your cake needs however large or small.
Please take a look at my website for more information and blog articles about my cakes.
To arrange a cake order please feel free to contact me at any time that suits you best. I will answer straight away if I can, or call you back as soon as possible.
