On since 2024

Last update: April 2024

Welcome to Centrepiece Cakes, my updated vision for my cake business, formerly known as Bakealous. I have built up a fantastic reputation throughout Hertfordshire and the home counties and have recently rebranded my business to Centrepiece Cakes. Having had two beautiful children in and around the time of COVID-19 and with my children now at school, I am able to start building my business back up and working with more lovely couples throughout 2024 and beyond.

My attention to detail has set me apart and enabled me to produce some of the most amazing cakes for Weddings and other special occasions since 2003, right up to the present day.

After years of practice and honing my craft, I finally found my passion in making handmade sugar flowers & foliage, which transform the most elegant of cakes into something truly magical – with the same question being asked many times over – are they real!?

Each of my cakes is designed to meet your needs and is made to order with absolute freshness and quality ingredients, with the height of all tiers being 7″ tall. These tiers include 3 layers of delicious sponge sandwiched between 2 layers of buttercream finished in a luxurious white chocolate ganache. Each of your guests will enjoy a generous serving, which is clearly an important factor when comparing value for money.

A 5-star food safety rating and public liability insurance give you peace of mind.

I am based in Stevenage and cover all of Hertfordshire, Essex, London, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and others, at some of the most prestigious venues in the country.

Gorgeous wedding cakes

the taste and appearance of my wedding cake absolutely blew me and my guests away, people still ask me who made the cake it was a big talking point for the evening. Louise recreated all the wild and wonderful ideas i had in my head and put it into cake, my now husband was really impressed too.

Amazing wedding cake

It was a pleasure to work with Lou to get our wedding cake - she made the process really smooth and she was always friendly, understanding and proffessional. On the day itself the cake was set up on time with no issues and oh my goshhh it looked and tasted incredible! We are so happy with the end product and everyone commented on how amazing it tasted too. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect wedding cake.

Wedding cake August 2011

I am delited to be given the opportunity to write a comment about my Wedding cake from Louise. You really have to see them to believe them. I ordered a 3 tier sponge cake and asked for Olive green and white as the theme and left the design and decoration up to Louise; she did not disappoint, the cake was stunning and the centre piece of my Wedding. The colours were exactly what I was looking for and matched my dress perfectly. L.Green - Stevenage

Wedding cake August 2011

I had a cup cake tower cake for my Wedding, handmade by Louise with a main Fruit cake. The way in which the cake came out in the end was well above my expectations of how I thought it would look. The guests all loved the cupcakes I wish I had ordered more as there wasn't enough for me! The roses looked beautiful and set the cake off well, I was really impressed that they were handmade in icing. D.Ward - Stevenage

Wedding cake November 2012

I was blown away when I saw my wedding cake, exactly as I had requested from Louise. When I was told how long Louise had taken to set the cake up and position the flowers I was not suprised. The handmade flowers somehow looked more realistic than the actual real roses I had ordered for the tables! The colours were spot on. On to the taste, well what can I say the fruit cake was so moist and tasted beautiful all of the guests were impressed. K. Baker - Hitchin
