About Honey Bee Bakes
Established in 2015, Honey Bee Bakes is owned by Lauren Smy, and based in Epping, Essex. We serve all of Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, London and beyond. We specialise in creating beautiful, bespoke cakes which make stunning centrepieces for your special occasion, and pride ourselves on ensuring that they taste as good as they look. We are now specialising in Wedding Cakes, although may have occasional availability for feminine, modern style cakes for other occasions such as christenings / anniversaries / special birthdays. Please note we do not offer novelty style cakes.
I have been baking since I was very young but started decorating when on maternity leave after having my twin boys. The following year I registered with my local council and environmental health department and set up the business officially. Demand for my creations grew and grew and in July 2017 I gave up working as a teacher to focus on the cake business full time. Having two young boys is one of the drivers for making such pretty cakes: there are too many boys things in the house, so a feminine outlet comes in the form of my cake designs!
My style is contemporary: tall cakes with sharp edges and clean lines. I love creating sugar flowers and designs I especially enjoy include watercolour painting on cakes, metallic calligraphy lettering, shiny lustred tiers and royal icing stencilling.
I am mostly self taught but have attended professional training to hone my skills. As you will see from the reviews and galleries, the attention to detail in my work and the level of personal customer service I provide are second to none. In addition to cakes I also provide dessert tables and delicious edible favours: anything from iced biscuits to meringue kisses, brownies to scones as well as mini cakes, cake pops and of course cupcakes. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your requirements and creating your dream cake!
