​Welcome to Betty's Crafty Cakes, by now hopefully you've already seen something to make your mouth water! Let me start by telling you how it all began.... By 2011 I'd been making cakes for my own family for a few years, and then by 2012 for friends & extended family. After much nagging from friends, requests from friends of friends, and even requests from people I didn't know to make cakes for them, I decided to go for it! Firstly I needed to take and pass the Level 2 Food Safety (Health and Hygiene) Exam, then I needed to pass the Local Authority checks, for which I was awarded the Level 5 Food Hygiene Rating from the local council in 2013 ...and here we are a couple of years down the line. I just love doing what I do, and get such enjoyment at the reaction of the recipient when they see their cake for the first time! If you have an enquiry then please use the 'Contact' page on this website, or alternatively look us up through Facebook or Twitter, details for this are also on the contact page. I'm based Nr Braintree in Essex.

 About Us

“The cake had everything we asked for and the attention to detail was incredible! I mean it looked fantastic, amazing actually, but i never expected it to taste as good as it looked...but it did!"

My wife and I ordered a surprise cake for our daughters birthday. She knew of Betty's Crafty Cakes though a friend of hers on social media. We met Betty and she listened to us and asked questions such as our daughters favourite colours and hobbies, she came up with an amazing design that was her to a T. Amazing service, fantastic taste, and we have used Betty's Crafty Cakes again and recommend her to all our friends and family.

We were highly delighted with the cake we ordered from Betty's Crafty Cakes, it was far better than we'd ever imagined! Cannot recommend this cake make enough!

"I used Betty's Crafty Cakes recently for a cake for my nieces 4th birthday. And after changing my mind I finally settled on a Beauty and the Beast themed cake as its one of my nieces favourite films.
I was very much involved with the design process from the start and was kept informed as to the progress of the cake. When it was finished I was overwhelmed with the whole thing, the attention to detail was amazing and the sponge itself was very light and so more-ish. An absolute shame to cut it!
My niece, along with my sister and I were thrilled. What made it even more special were the cake toppers used to decorate, a perfect memento and keepsake for my neice.
An excellent service, I would recommend Betty's Crafty Cakes to anyone looking for an individual and bespoke cake for any occasion."

I've had a few cakes from Bettty's Crafty Cakes now including a Harry Potter monster book, the attention to detail is amazing and the cakes taste as good as they look. My children would want no-one else to make their cakes, and neither do I.

Thank you Betty for making both my girls noteable birthdays a success. In the last 14 months i've had two cakes which were both delivered to the highest quality, the service is second to none with your thoughts and ideas listened to and then created in sugarpaste! Betty takes an active interest in the person she is creating for, contributing ideas based on her experience but she never takes over. Result : Beautiful and well interpreted cakes that taste delicious too!
