They say that baking is therapeutic- something that I certainly discovered when I found myself taking time out from my job as retail manager to focus on recovering from breast cancer. While at home, I was able to spend more time enjoying the love of baking. Soon friends and family were complimenting me on the taste and creativity of my cakes and suggesting I should take things further and sell cakes for a living.
I set up Anita's Wicked Cakes, online in October 2011 and built up the business through word of mouth, charity work hosting Coffee mornings, Strawberry tea events and advertising in my local area. I now supply cakes for all occasions to customers including corporate events in Liverpool and the Merseyside area. I hold consultations at home for larger cake orders and wedding cakes with tasters by appointment. My services also includes delivery and setting up Wedding cakes and other large occasion cakes to venues. I also cater for customers needing occasion cakes, from other parts of the Uk who come to celebrate events in Liverpool for special occasions like hen parties and special birthdays, anniversaries.
Over the last few years since growing my business, my orders have grown from Liverpool, to not only the Uk, but now global. I have recently worked with an event company from Malaysia, I supplied two large cake orders to venues in Liverpool city centre. This was for a large group of football fans visiting Liverpool from another country to watch the Liverpool football match. I have also worked with other companies and clients worldwide from Dubai, Canada, Germany, France, Netherlands, and now have a regular customer that lives in Spain, who orders cakes on his return visit back to his home town of Liverpool when visiting his family.
Having a qualification in Art and Design has helped me in creating artistic cakes, which I love to design and love the reaction I get from customers, when they see their finished bespoke cakes. I am passionate in what I do and this is reflected in my impeccable attention to detail. I hold a food hygiene rating of 5 from Liverpool City Council and completed a level 2 award in food safety for catering and Food Allergy and Intolerance Training.
My team now consists of myself Anita and family members that help out during busy periods with helping to bake and deliver the cakes
