When I first saw Mama Cakes displayed at Armathwaite Hall Wedding Fayre last month, I was blown away by the stunning craftsmanship and beauty of their cakes.

The proprietor of Mama Cakes is Claire Houghton-Byers. Her baking skills were first honed while working as a nanny, before spending some time abroad, widening her culinary horizons, tastes and artistic skills.

Returning to Cumbria, Claire continued to create cakes for children’s birthday parties and Mama Cakes was born. Now she and her team create the most incredible wedding, birthday and celebration cakes, which just look stunning.

Prices for wedding cakes start £175, which is a base price, for a simple iced cake. Sugar flowers and figures which can take hours to create, if not days, cost extra.
