The Elegant Baking Company
Our company has been formed around the principle of 'You deserve better from first glance to last morsel!'
It means there is no sacrificing of the flavour of a chocolate cake by using hot chocolate powder, when we say chocolate you will taste the richness. We will always make the effort to understand the customers desires and then deliver then without false promises. Our cakes should always look so good you dont want to cut them, then taste so good you dont want to share!
Amy - Founder and Chef
"I was lucky to have been born with a exceptional palete, I feel even luckier that I can use this talent to make the world a little better in my own way."
Growing up I spent lot of time with my grandparents who lavished time helping me develop my creative flair and encouraging me to establish my own style. In exchange they accepted cooked meals and expanded their culinary horizons.
Our First Cake
Like many other cake makers Amy had been making cakes for friends and family long before the idea of selling one professionally came about. It was a frightening step, full of unknowns, potential pitfalls and innumeral '...What if' horror scenarios running though her head. When that first customer came to collect her order and pushed more money than agreed into Amy's apron Amy knew her future did not include a traditional 9-5 job.
Our First Market
With the support of Amy's family and friends she attended her first market selling tasty creations (chocolate truffles and biscuits). When Amy and co. had sold out of chocolate truffles by lunchtime on the first of a two day show they knew we were onto a winning combination and would need more than Amy alone for future business.
With the guidence and financial help of 'The Princes Trust' and training from 'The Sheffield College' we have been growing Amy's fledgling idea of creating and selling great edible artwork acress Sheffield. Now watch us in 2014 as we expand even further!
Remember, 'You deserve better!'
