Cakes at Rachel's is going up in the world!! From the 1st January 2020, we will be rebranding as Ivy and Bloom Cake Company.
Since I first started Cakes at Rachel's in 2013, it's grown with me as I began and then continued my cake journey. It's become comfortable and familiar, like putting on an old snuggly jumper or a favourite pair of slippers! I feel that the time has come to take off the old snuggly jumper and slippers and slip on a glamorous black and gold ballgown, pick up a glass of champagne and put myself in front of clientele that up to now I haven't approached because I felt like I was under-dressed! So, over the last few weeks, I've been working hard behind the scenes to shed my comfortable little cake business and begin to present my brand new, beautiful, classy, glamorous new cake business!
So, with that, I will be no longer updating this website, instead I will be starting to add content to the new website. You will still be able to view the galleries on this website for about the next twelve months, but after that I will be letting it go.
The new website and blog can be found at https://ivyandbloomcakes.co.uk, and the new contact email will be firstname.lastname@example.org. The old Cakes at Rachel's Facebook page has been changed to an interim name for the next few weeks - "Ivy and Bloom Cake Company formerly Cakes at Rachel's" - yes, it's a right mouthful, but you will be reassured that you have found me and it's only temporary - the name will change fully in January to Ivy and Bloom Cake Company. I *think* Facebook notifies you when I change my page name, so if you are already a liker, you should receive a notification. If you are booked in for a cake with me, I will be sending you all a personal message as well.
So, thank you for bearing with me while I get things changed round and settled in, hopefully there won't be too much disruption and normal service will be resumed shortly!
Here's to the next chapter! Woo! It's exciting!

2020 Closed from 17th July, reopening Mon 27th July Closed from 31st October, reopening 9th November

Orders for Saturday will be available for collection on Friday evening, and Monday orders will be available for collection after 5pm (individual arrangements will be made for wedding cakes due to setting up at venues). Whilst I am a baking genius, I do need time to recuperate between busy weeks, and I don't want to end up in the situation where I am rushing orders through to meet deadlines without a break. The quality and finish of your cakes is, as always, of the utmost importance to me. Please bear this in mind when you place your order.
WEDDING CONSULTATIONS The next date for Cakes at Rachel's Wedding Consultations is soon to be announced, if you would like to book a place or to be added to the contact list for when the next date becomes available, please contact me via the links above or via the contact page. It's £20 to cover costs, but this is refunded if you choose to book your cake with me.
There is no obligation to book your wedding cake with me, I don't do hard sell, it's just a chance for you to meet me and have a chat about your cake over a cup of tea or coffee. Find out more information about booking your wedding cake here, or have a browse through the Wedding Cakes gallery here.
