A Little Taste... 

I began baking at the age of 5 years old with my Mother and Granny. Like most children licking the spoon at the end was the best bit!

As I grew up I knew I wanted to continue to make and decorate cakes professionally and so after several years providing delicious cakes for friends and family Gateau Alchemy was founded in 2016! 

I'm based at my home in Othery, Somerset and hold the highest 5* food hygiene rating issued by Bridgwater Council.

I pride myself on attention to detail and will work with you to provide the best design suited to your occasion, wishes and theme of event. I will guide you and ensure a smooth process when ordering a bespoke cake and will ensure that expectations are met.

I always use the best quality fresh ingredients in my cakes and work with local suppliers to find new sources and ingredients to provide fantastic flavours. 


I provide many different flavours and fillings. A ll of these can be combined to make your cake unique to you, as well as being able to choose a variety of covers for your cakes including fondant, chocolate ganache and buttercream.

I specialize in hand-painted cakes and edible wafer flowers so if this sounds like your style then don't hesitate to message me. 

I am so excited to continue this journey with all of you and cannot wait to help create something that will make a delicious part to your special day. For me the more interesting and unique your ideas are the better!! So show me your unicorns, bright green cakes, anchors, mermaids, vampires and anything else you can think of I won't shy away from a challenge!
