About Us

The Cake Lady specialises in all aspects of cake making, decorating and sugarcraft. Our wedding cakes are exquisite – made the traditional homemade way, from only the finest ingredients.

We offer a personalised service where quality, not quantity, is the essence and take great pride in being able to design an individual cake for every occasion.

The atmosphere is friendly and our staff are always availale if you are in need of advice. You can choose from our photograph alburm or have a cake personally designed for you.

Alternatively we can quote on any design from a magazine or book. Our prices include the cakes fully decorated and boxed up, and we also offer knife and cake stand hire for that finishing touch.

The Cake Lady shop is also filled with accessories for wedding, birthday and special occasion cakes to be made by the customer.

We try to accommodate most requests for cakes, including dietary needs.

Sue Richards and Sue Meader have been next-door-neighbours for over 18 years. Their children are similar ages, and the two Sues became great friends.

They decided to attend evening classes and found that their talents dovetailed well: Sue Richards has a talent for baking and Sue Meader is the expert Decorator. They started to create cakes for friends and family and this gradually developed into a thriving home-based business. They used to buy their supplies from a shop in Shirley, Southampton called The Cake Lady.

Unfortunately, the proprietor became seriously ill and sadly died very suddenly. A chance remark in the shop found Sue and Sue as the new proprietors.

Today the shop employs 8 people in addition to the two Sues: it sells cake decorating products, specially commissioned cakes and, in the new extension, now runs Cake Decorating Courses.
