The Buttercup Bakery



Emma Whitwell has been baking her delicious cakes for almost 10 years. She has always had a passion for cake baking and cake decorating and in her spare time Emma would make ‘occasion’ cakes for her friends and family members. After a couple of months of creating her special cakes for them she began to be inundated with requests, not only from people she knew but also from others who had seen or tried her cakes. The orders for one or more of her creations started coming in regularly and during a visit to the famous Magnolia Bakery in New York, Emma discovered similarities in design and taste to her own cakes and so then, in 2012, she decided to give her dream a go and set up her own business.

The Buttercup Bakery specialises in occasion and corporate cakes, along with cupcakes, and it caters for all budgets. Emma is a fondant icing queen and has created some stunning cakes. She loves receiving a request for bespoke cakes, as it allows her to be creative and push herself even further in trying out new designs and techniques, her most popular flavour is chocolate, and you are likely to see her cakes at many corporate events throughout the city. Emma delights in creating beautiful, tasty pieces of art in the form of a cake and gets a great thrill from seeing people’s reactions when they see the finished product!

It is no surprise that she has become the ‘go to’ for many people seeking that unique wedding or celebration cake.
