Craft Cakes is located in North London and we specialise in custom cakes and desserts for weddings, christenings, birthdays and anniversaries, as well as corporate events.

All our cakes are one-of-a-kind and lovingly hand-crafted to add that unique sparkle to life’s happy occasions.

ABOUT LEIGH

Leigh left a career in advertising and events back in her native Singapore and went to culinary school in New York City to pursue her dream.

After graduating, she worked with New York’s reknown cake designer Ron-Ben Israel, where she developed her skills for creating exquisitely-styled wedding and celebration cakes.

She moved to London in January 2009 and worked as a pastry chef at Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant Sketch before starting Craft Cakes in July 2010.

When asked what she finds most fulfilling about making this drastic switch of careers, she replies ”Being able to put a smile on the faces of complete strangers with the cakes and pastries I create, it makes me love what I do.”
