Hi I’m Tasha...

- a ‘30 something’ tatted Elder Emo with a passion for live music and all things cake!

Not your average baker, I specialise in the weird and wonderful, alternative, and most importantly – the unapologetically you!

From our first contact to handover, I do my very best to alleviate any unnecessary stress. Just sit back and relax, knowing everything cake-related is in hand ahead of your big day. I don't have a set menu for wedding cake flavours. If you can think it, I can create it!

I also bake gluten free, dairy free and Vegan – all without compromising on design. My cakes are made fresh to order in the heart of Yorkshire, and delivered to your venue before your guests arrive on your big day.

Where to begin. It's really simple.

Drop me a line as soon as you have a date confirmed with your venue. I’ll then send you a provisional quote.

If you’re happy to go ahead, a booking fee secures your wedding date in my diary. This means I can safely turn other work away in favour of your booking.

You are more than welcome to request a sample box before committing with a booking fee. Sample boxes can be collected or posted nationwide (mainland UK only).

Around 3-6 months before your wedding, we will arrange a final design consultation. This is around a 30 minute zoom call appointment. At this point we will finalise your chosen flavour(s), size and design.

Shortly after, I will issue your final invoice for payment.

Final balances are due by 4 weeks prior to your wedding.

All cakes contain only the finest ingredients, sourced locally from Yorkshire where possible. Every cake is carefully baked and hand-decorated in York by me, Tasha. If you would like to start planning your dream wedding cake, please do get in touch!

Very Tasty Gluten Free Cake

Tasha offered a great choice of flavours, and was more than happy to accommodate the need for the cake to be gluten free and safe for a coeliac bride.
She had good design ideas, and the finished cake fit perfectly with our theme.

Amazing Cake Maker & Great Communication

Tasha at Valkyrie Cakes made our Wedding cake and we would thoroughly recommend her. From initial contact to aftercare, her communication and organisation was brilliant. Everything was so clearly laid out and explained and we were updated at every stage, which helped to reduce stress and ease worries.

She really took on board what we wanted. The cake she made was beautiful and exactly what we hoped for. It also tasted delicious and we had so many compliments from guests too. Tasha had loads of amazing flavour options and we loved being able to have a different flavour for each cake tier, including a Vegan tier which was really popular.

If we ever need a celebration cake in the future we will definitely be calling on Tasha!

Spring wedding

Tasha provided our wedding cake in May and her service beginning to end was excellent. When I enquired, she immediately phoned to make me aware she had seen my enquiry, which I thought was above and beyond service-wise. She has an amazing choice of flavours and her attention to detail with colour scheme was unmatched. The final product speaks for itself!

Best Wedding Cake EVER!

Tasha made our wedding cake and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish. From the very beginning, Tasha catered to our every need. She even created a sample box based on new favours we wanted! She was so organised, communicated everything clearly and was just so lovely to work with. I would pick her again and again for any cake I wanted. She created our stunning wedding cake in banoffee and carrot cake - we had bought loads of cake boxes under the impression that no one really eats wedding cake on the day! So we had all these boxes ready - but little did we know that every single piece was eaten straight away on the day. I’ve literally never heard of anything like it - but we had so many people come to us afterwards to say it was the best cake they have ever had. Can’t recommend Tasha enough!

Amazing Cake and Service!

After looking at several different websites for our wedding cake, we came across Valkyrie Cakes and saw exactly what we were hoping for. From the beginning, Tasha would respond to any messages quickly and would always be so friendly and professional. We were kept up to date throughout the process and felt confident in what she would create for us.

All of our guests told us how much they loved the cake (taste and appearance) as well as the variety of flavours that were available. I would not hesitate to recommend Tasha to anyone looking for their perfect cake. Thank you so much adding something so special to our day!

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish!

We approached Tasha at Valkyrie Cakes to ask if she could create our dream wedding cake. From start to finish, she listened to all of our ideas and suggestions, and helped us to reach our end design. Although we opted for a basic semi-naked wedding cake, she ensured that the finished product was perfect in every way! We went for a red velvet sponge with white buttercream, and Tasha finished off decorating our cake on our wedding day with our chosen flowers from our florist. Our cake more than exceeded our expectations, and our guests were completely blown away by how moist and tasty it was - It definitely went down a treat with everyone! I highly recommend Valkyrie Cakes - She is a wonderful person, and to top it off, her cakes taste absolutely phenomenal!

Perfect cake

Tasha created the perfect cake for me based on the brief provided. I loved that I was able to dream up what I wanted and she could create it - nothing seemed too ‘out there’ for her. The cake itself was light and fluffy, it went down a treat. If you are looking for an alternative design to the usual white floral cakes Tasha is your baker! *****
