About Pat-a-Cakes

Pat-a-Cakes is a family run business that has been cake decorating for about 30 years and loving every minute of it.  There is always something new to learn and another technique to perfect.  Pat-a-Cakes have developed their own style of decorating over this time to ensure top quality, bespoke cakes for any occasion.  We decorate cakes for many people, and are now decorating for their children and a few grandchildren too, which is lovely. Going through the photos for this site, we could remember each person that had ordered the cakes, as well as each person for whom the cake was intended. As a result, each one is personal to us too.

Please feel free to browse the site at your leisure. You will find everything you need here from portioning tables to prices, not to mention a continually updating gallery of some of the cakes we've made in the past.

All cakes are made to order using ingredients that you would use yourself.   I do not have a store of cakes ready to purchase, so every cake I supply is as fresh as possible.


How it all started

Pat Grant - Founder of Pat-a-Cakes

"I began my interest in cake making and decorating when I was about 11 years old and cooked the family Christmas cake.  I wrote down the ingredients, and took the list to a small shop locally, which had wooden floor boards and a cupboard running one length of the shop with many labelled drawers, brass handled.  The shopkeeper measured out each one from the polished wooden drawers in the magnificent cupboard and put them into individual paper bags.  Nowadays the ingredients are hygienically sealed and are readily available everywhere, but probably not as memorable to buy as my first pack of raisins."
