Emily’s Mixing Bowl was founded in 2015 after a lifelong love affair with baking and design.
I take pride in the fact that all my cakes are handcrafted and made to your unique specifications using the best quality local ingredients.
A bit about my background;
I trained at Central Saint Martins Art College in Graphic Design during which time I managed to integrate food into every project I did in one way or another. Having discovered my passion for food, cooking and baking I came back to my hometown of Eastbourne and got a job working in a restaurant. Having always been a keen home cook I worked hard and gained a catering qualification. I worked my way up from commis to the pastry chef at the restaurant and spent many happy hours creating dessert menus and learning new techniques in the art of desserts. I have fond memories of mastering the art of macarons, marshmallows, honeycombe, ice-creams and choux pastry to name a few. I then worked my way up to become Head Chef which although enjoyable never gave me the same satisfaction as creating desserts.
My passion for design and catering brought me to make cakes and desserts over the years for family and friends birthdays and weddings. I even made my own wedding cake and prepared the food for my 130 guests! I did let someone else cook it though.
I now create, design and handcraft wedding cakes for others and love bringing my creativity and knowledge of flavour together to create a masterpiece. I love the whole process of designing and baking a couple’s dream cake, from the initial sketch to the last touches.
