Cakes o'Licious was established in 2010 by Hanli Brain.
Baking and cake design has always been my passion. I come from a family of bakers and as a little girl I could only admire the beautiful sugar flowers my aunts made. As a teenager I used to bake birthday cakes for all the family and some of our family friends. After completing High school in Newcastle, South Africa I attended Hotelschool and completed my Higher Diploma in Commercial Catering. I worked for 2 large Commercial Catering companies in Durban and Johannesburg before working as a Wedding Co-Ordinator at a private wedding venue outside Johannesburg. I was then offered the opportunity to expand the wedding services at a venue in Bedfordview Johannesburg. Here I was fortunate to co-ordinate all aspects of the weddings held at the venue.
I relocated to the UK in 1998 and worked in London for a while. Due to family restrictions I was unable to persue my catering career fulltime. However this did not curb my love for baking and in 2009 I completed my NCFE 3 in sugar flowers. After much encouragement from friends and family I decided to start Cakes o'Licious in 2010.
Since then I have achieved achieved a silver award in '3-tier or more' wedding cakes at Cake International as well as a silver in the celebration cakes category.
I provide a professional, friendly and personal service with meticulous attention to detail, giving you peace of mind from initial consultation to the delivery and set-up of your cake.
In October 2015 I took the huge step of expanding the business from a workshop to a fully fledged High Street shop. The larger space has offered a lot of new opportunites for the business such as the opportunity to upgrade the cake classes to a full time cake academy. In conjunction with this I have also become a supplier for everything that a budding cake maker could ever want or need.
I look forward to taking your order and are confident that you will enjoy my cakes as much as I enjoy creating them.
