A little about me...

As a child I was encouraged to be artistic and creative by my mother who was an oil painting artist. She strongly supported and nurtured my creative talents.

I enjoyed a 17 year long career in the TV production industry before giving up work to be a stay at home mum. I soon found myself making cakes for children’s birthday parties and school fêtes... Having virtually no training, I set up Magical Cupcakes in July 2009 based at home in Potters Bar and worked hard to establish my business in my local community, offering freshly baked cakes at affordable prices.

Almost 3 years on, I am completely consumed by cake, obsessed with clean lines, always co-ordinating colours, elegant patterns and constantly trying to create new original designs. I get my inspiration from everything around me, beautiful greeting cards, fabrics, handbags, jewellery and of course flowers. When I’m browsing the internet, or out shopping and I see something I like I immediately wonder how I can turn it into cake or how I can use an element in a cake design!

Every cake I make is unique and different to anything that I have made before. Often, my customers give me a short brief as to what they require and I will always try to deliver over and above their expectations. Of course I welcome my client’s input and as much information as possible to ascertain what is required of me, whether it is for a child’s birthday party or for that extra special occasion.

I bake and decorate everything in my newly refurbished home kitchen. Given enough notice I can certainly cope with large orders or volumes and I have help at hand as required. However, I try to restrict taking on too many orders for the same day to ensure I maintain the high standards of service and customer focus that I strive for. I would therefore advise anyone hoping to have a cake from me this year to book your date in my diary sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. Details and requirements can be discussed and finalised at a later date.

I am proud that Magical Cakery is a recommended supplier of Brocket Hall Estate. We are also an official supplier for Arsenal Football Club (Diamond Club).

I hope you enjoy browsing through my website and would love to hear from you soon.
