Like many cake makers, Elizabeth’s passion for cake baking started as a hobby. She began her working life as a scientist in microbiology for the NHS before moving on to become a headhunter, recruiting CEOs and other board level executives for the private, public and charity sectors. Elizabeth undertook all these jobs while making her beautiful cakes on the side until, with her loving family’s support and encouragement, she finally started her business. Her company now employs four members of staff at its headquarters in Barnet, North London.

Elizabeth's clients range in their needs and desires, and she works in close collaboration to ensure they receive a stunning, bespoke wedding cake that finishes off their magical day with style. Her cakes are favoured by those who have a love of luxury -- she has produced some truly spectacular cakes and prides herself on rising to the challenge no matter how big or small. Elizabeth’s sugar work is brilliant, and her attention to detail results in a beautiful and unique work of art that adds the wow factor to a wedding venue.

The design process at Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium begins with an initial consultation. The ideation stage is used to decide on the design, textures and colours of the cake. The bride and groom are encouraged to bring invitations, swatches and photographs of themes they are considering for their event.

These are used as inspiration, helping the couple to realise their dream of the perfect wedding cake. Elizabeth loves creating unique statement cakes with beautiful sugar flowers, edible jewels and edible lace. Hours of painstaking work go into every production.

The effort given to the outside of the cake is first given to the inside, resulting in a cake that is as good to eat as it is to look at. Elizabeth has over 50 different cake flavour combinations to choose from; there is something to suit everyone’s taste. Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium is the ideal choice for couples looking for a luxury cake that’s delicious and truly impressive.
