About


Welcome to Elspeth’s Cakes

Birthday, wedding, any celebration cakes, handmade and designed for you in my Edinburgh kitchen

I offer a local, personal service making and decorating cakes and patisserie. Having enjoyed baking for many years, I first learned the art of sugar craft at Paul Bradford Sugarcraft School when my son asked me to make his wedding cake. I enjoyed learning to make sugar flowers for the wedding and I then went on to complete courses in sugar craft, cake design, royal icing, cake lace and cake painting. I have been fortunate to have been taught by some of the most talented cake decorators in the UK, including Paul Bradford, Ceri DD Griffiths, Dawn Butler and Natasha Collins. In January 2012 I left my career in education and launched Elspeth’s Cakes. Since then I have created many different cakes for all kinds of celebrations. So why not contact me and I’ll be happy to discuss your requirements, whatever the occasion.
