The Handmade Cake Company was founded In 1983, in the kitchen of Diana Maher, an exceptional home baker when she began baking delicious cakes for a local coffee shop. The cakes tasted so good she was soon over run with orders. Her front room became an office, the garage was turned into a freezer and the family car was exchanged for a delivery van… Whilst Diana’s original recipes are still used for some of our best loved cakes, we now have a dedicated team who develop new and incredible creations. Our new bakes range from traditional to cutting edge but are always handmade and incredibly tasty. We now have a thriving bakery in Berkshire which has AA+ grade BRC certification and an experienced team of bakers and finishers who take huge pride in what they do. Though the number of cakes we bake has grown over the years, our batch size remains relatively small, and we’re careful to stay true to our handmade promise and consistent in delivering a genuine, artisanal look and taste.
In 2014, The Handmade Cake Company was bought by the Mademoiselle Desserts Group with the Maidenhead bakery becoming one of the three Mademoiselle Desserts Bakeries in the UK, specialising in Traybakes, Cakes and Gluten Free.
