• Elizabeth in the kitchen

Welcome to my world

My name is Elizabeth and I live in Ashby de la Zouch with my husband and two young children. I’ve always loved baking and have been making cakes for family and friends since I was at school! When I had my little girl four years ago I wanted her to have a truly special personalised cake for her 1st Birthday. I didn’t want a supermarket tasteless sponge with basic decorations on – from then on I turned my hobby into a professional business and launched Elizabeth’s Cakes of Ashby. The 3D work and small details on cakes are what I really enjoy doing and are what will make your cake stand out as a true centrepiece.

I am always happy to spend time via email, facebook, face to face or phone to make sure that any ideas you have are
incorporated into your cake design and ensure that every detail of your cake is made to your requirements and it is truly
a unique cake. I will deliver cakes nationally and have clients from all over the UK.


All my cakes are made from fresh ingredients with no artificial preservatives or flavourings, baked as close to your party
or event as possible for maximum freshness. Local products are sourced to support local businesses and local farms
where possible.


I pay close attention to what you want, so I am really happy to design and decorate cakes in traditional, modern or novelty
styles to suit your requirements. I pride myself in cakes of all types but I do think that my 3D novelty designs are fabulous
and worth that extra cost as a cake finisher or as the cake design itself! (e.g. I can put a 3D Monkey on top of a cake or shape
a cake to look purely like a 3D Monkey!).

If you already have an idea of what you want then I would be very happy to copy a picture or sketch of your design, otherwise
I offer a free consultation to develop the perfect cake for you.

I can liaise with florists and accessory suppliers to ensure every attention to detail is listened to and catered for.


Once I have designed your cake, the next step is to ensure it tastes perfect. I home bake all my sponges.

The most popular flavours are vanilla, fresh lemon and rich chocolate sponges, but many more options are available to suit
all palates! My larger cakes can be made with different flavoured tiers. The filling in my cakes is normally buttercream/jam
but we can discuss what you would like and I am very happy to accommodate suggestions/alternatives.


I am happy to provide advice on portion size and serving options when planning your cake. I also recognise the importance
of displaying your cake to create that “maximum impact party centrepiece”, so I supply your cake with a fully iced display
board to give that extra wow factor free of charge.

I hope you enjoy my website.

Best Wishes
