About Elaine Charles...

Wedding Cakes

My name is Elaine Charles and I design and make cakes for customers in South Yorkshire and around the UK.

Having made cakes for all occasions for many years; having started some 30+ years ago when Royal Icing tended to be the decoration of choice, before modern sugar paste techniques were introduced.

To keep up with the times and be able to offer my customers a modern choice, I updated my qualifications over recent years to become fully ABC qualified in all aspects of cake decorating to advanced level, achieving distinctions throughout, and I have now established Sheffield Cakes as one of the leading cake makers in Sheffield.

Since starting Sheffield Cakes I have made all types of cakes; traditional, modern, cupcake tiers and less traditional wedding cakes like the VW campervan, and many different fun themed cakes for other celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries, new baby & christenings.

I am very proud to have established my cake business through customer recommendations as my main source of new custom. I also undertake work for other established cake decorators, wedding planners and wedding venues who are confident I can deliver what the customer wants.
"I am certain that if you place an order with me you will not be disappointed!"

Wedding Cake Story...

The contemporary wedding cake has grown out of many traditions. One of the first traditions began in Ancient Rome where bread was broken over the bride’s head to bring good fortune to the couple. In Medieval England cakes were stacked as high as possible for the bride and groom to kiss over, if they successfully kissed over the stack they were guaranteed a prosperous life together. From this the Croquembouche
