After working as a Pastry Chef in London for 22 years, I am now working from home in North Chingford.
Amongst other prestigious locations I was Head Pastry Chef and then Sous Chef at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster for Prue Leith, Pastry Chef for The Orient Express train, and Chef Manager for a private business in Wigmore Street.
Carolyn Davis Bespoke Cakes was set up as a home-based company in 2014. I started working from home as a Cake Decorator after having my 2 Children.
I am committed to giving you a truly bespoke cake, tailored to your personal requirements.
Each order is baked in my home especially for you. I do not batch-bake and freeze, I give you a freshly baked home-made cake, decorated by a professional.
I have been inspected by our local EHO and comply with all hygeine, food safety and allergen regulations.
I have been awarded a Food Standards Agency hygeine rating of 5. Very Good (the highest rating). Two successive inspections rated at level 5.
In addition I have an up to date Level 2 Hygeine certificates meeting UK/EU food hygiene and safety standards.
Having worked in the catering business for many years, I'm very aware of the commitment to Health, Safety and Hygiene protocols that need to be adhered to.
My experience tells me that a cake will taste better if I use real Butter, rather than a butter substitute.
Eggs should be Free Range, never from battery hens.
If I can, I will Buy British products and support our local economy.
I take ALLERGENS very seriously and follow all FSA advice highlighting all the allergens that may be in your product.
I work from home in my family kitchen, there may be traces of ALLERGENS.
I do use NUTS and other allergens in my kitchen, and in some of the products that I use, but will do my utmost to keep your cake away from nuts or any other allergies that you may have. I follow the strict guidelines from the Food Standards Agency and from Dec 2014 these rules are changing, I will be up to date!
As of October 2021 "Natasha's Law" comes into force. As my goods are not pre-packaged I do not fall into this catergory, but I will still label your cake box with all the ALLERGENS that are present in your cake, and those those ALLERGENS THAT MAY BE PRESENT IN TRACES.
I can cater for Vegan requirements and other dietary intolerances and requests. Please ask.
If you need it to be Gluten Free or Vegan, I can do that, there are a few options.... However there may be traces of ALLERGENS in these cakes. It is very difficult to eliminate all risk without a scientifically controlled production kitchen.
I don't suggest that your cake is actually "healthy", it has all the delicious ingredients that constitute a treat!
I really enjoy working with my customers to create a truly unique cake, that is meaningful and full of detail for the recipient.
