Meet The Maker

My name is Kelly and I am the founder of Sugar Wishes Cakes. 

I realised I had a passion for cake decorating shortly after the birth of my first daughter, when I wanted to create an amazing cake for her 1st birthday. That was 12 years ago now and my business has gone from strength to strength and in 2018 I was able to give up my day job as a Marketing Manager to pursue a full time career in the cake decorating world! In 2019 I took the plunge and signed for my first commercial premises and now work from the bakery based at the Lane Ends in Preston, Lancashire. 

I love everything about my job, I am very lucky that I get to be involved in all my customers happy moments in life. I love seeing designs come to life and there is no better feeling than getting amazing feedback. 

Every year I push myself to learn new skills and keep on top of upcoming trends in the cake industry. I am a regular at many venues including Wyresdale Park, Stirk House, Bartle Hall, Eaves Hall and Holmes MIll to name a few. I travel across Lancashire and further afield, basically if you want me to create you a beautiful cake I will be there. 

I take enormous amounts of pride in my work and never let a cake leave me until I am 100% happy with the design. I provide a personal yet professional service and produce cakes of the highest standard. Nothing is too much trouble and I work closely with my customers to create a cake that is not only a beautiful focal point but tastes amazing too.
