Introducing the Little Chimes Bakery
Are you short on time? Do you want bespoke homemade cakes and treats, but without the drama and icing sugar clouds?
All cakes and treats are made to order, to customers specifications. I mainly use ingredients suitable for a vegetarian diet, but can tailor to other dietary needs if required. Please note that as it is a home kitchen I cannot guarantee that am allergen free. From the moment that you contact me, to the delivery of your cake, you will receive a friendly bespoke cake making service. Be it for a surprise cupcake bouquet, to an extravagant celebration cake with all the sprinkles and glitter, you can be assured of the highest standards of food hygiene and quality ingredients. I have received a 5 star rating from Medway Council and am fully insured. I take great pride in every step of my work, with every cake carefully baked to order and hand decorated. I am based in Hoo St Werburgh near Rochester, and provide free local delivery to the Medway Towns. I can also deliver to Kent and Essex if required. For those further afield, I also offer boxes of Treats by Post in the online shop. On that page of the website you will also find the current specials.
So who is the person baking these cakes? I'm Diana or 'Auntie Cake' by the little un's (some not so little anymore 😲). I love all things cake! A self taught cake maker and designer working around a full time job. My background is in Archaeology, but I have always enjoyed baking from a young age. In 2015, my studies had finished, and inspired by The Great British Bake Off television shows, I began visiting cake shows and was hooked from the moment I stepped in! Amazed by the displays, the demonstrations and of course loving the tastings. It rekindled my passion for creating cakes. I trialled my creative bakes on willing family and friends, for birthdays, anniversaries, just because... any excuse for baking became the norm. At walking group meets, my cupcakes were most welcome. Who doesn't love a treat at the end of a long hike! My cake hobby expanded through more and more requests from family and friends, so in 2020, I established Little Chimes Bakery.
I delight in seeing the enjoyment and surprise that a bespoke cake can bring to someone. Especially if it has been tailored their specific likes and dietary requirements. As a nut intolerant vegetarian myself and can fully understand the stress that dietary needs can cause. I completely believe that everyone should be able to have their cake and eat it! I love creating bespoke cakes and expanding my skills. It brings me so much enjoyment making different designs and recipes to create a personalised showstopper. I'm always thinking of new ideas, and open to new challenges.
