Every cake that we make is made for you as an individual.  We use the best ingredients that we can source and we are known for our attention to detail. We are also able to cater for gluten and dairy free and vegan diets.

Who we are

After a varied and successful career in the marketing, finance and customer service industries, Val was keen to have a business that offered a personal touch. Val has always had a love of baking and with other family members already involved in the catering and hospitality industry, she decided to take her passion in this direction with the formation of Sovereign Cakes.

 Initially self-taught, Val has now completed a number of courses in sugarcraft and chocolate, she continues to expand her knowledge with regular refresher courses adding new skills and techniques. 

Val has now been joined by her sister, Debbie. Debbie has had businesses as a glass and ceramic artist, window dresser and caterer and comes with a wealth of knowledge and skills. They have now relocated to a beautiful studio/showroom in the heart of the Old Town and are excited to take The Sovereign Cake Studio onto the next level.

Eat Together

We take our business seriously but we also have a lot of fun and ask the question, why should a cake look like a cake?
