Icing on the Cake is a family based cake maker’s with over 32 years of experience in freshly made novelty, party and celebration cakes, – for children and adults – made to order for all occasions, as well as Contemporary and Traditional Wedding Cakes for that special day.
Our shop is based in Bacup, Lancashire where we welcome you to chat with us, place you orders and browse at our cake making and decorating supplies.
Originally, I started out by making my children’s birthday party cakes and other fun cakes for their friends, usually with special requests for children’s character cakes!
Then down the years, whenever there was a family or friends’ special occasion, I was always flattered to be asked to make the cake – Anniversary, Wedding, Birthday Party, Christening, you name the occasion and I made the cake for it. Often with a special request for one of my “famous rich chocolate cakes” at any get together!
(I also make a scrumptious Tiramisu and other special, yummy deserts for dinner parties – one day I just might expand and add these to our product list!)
Proud of our reputation for great cake ideas and designs
Once I decided to turn my passion for cake making into a family-run business here in Lancs, a lot of our custom came from word of mouth and we had customers contacting us from local areas like Rochdale, Burnley and Rossendale. Nearly everyone who we have made a special occasion cake for has then gone on to recommend us to a friend or neighbour, which has helped our reputation for great celebration cakes reach further afield – other parts of Lancashire, West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.
We like to specialise in making novelty cakes which are personalised and have something to say about the recipient – such as hobbies, mannerisms etc. Coming up with cake ideas and cake decorating designs is part of the fun and it’s so satisfying when our customers are thrilled with the final result.
Plenty of choice for your cake ingredients and special requirements
Our cakes are made using free range, organic and free trade ingredients wherever possible and we can supply gluten and wheat-free options, plus icing colours suitable for vegetarians.
We will happily chat to you about your special cake-making requirements and offer a variety of choices for celebration cake flavours and fillings.
Of course, when we come to chat about your special cake, we are happy for you to try some “taste-testers”, to help you decide what flavours and fillings are best suited to your special occasion!
Affordable Prices so you can “have your cake and eat it!”
Whatever kind of freshly made cake you desire – Wedding, Birthday, Retirement, Christening, Novelty etc. and be it for an adult or for kids, our cake prices are excellent value for money.
Our celebration cake price guide gives far more information, as does our Wedding Cake price guide, which also includes information about Wedding Tier cakes and Wedding cake toppers. Don’t forget that cake delivery also covers the assembly of your cake at your venue.
So please have a browse through our website; our Cakes Page is full of information and our Cake Galleries show just some of the cakes we have made for our loyal customers, split into the various categories of cake we make.
