About Elaine

my recipe for success…

My name is Elaine and I live in Hextable, Kent with my husband and two lovely daughters. After a long and successful career in retail management I took a career break to have my eldest daughter. Whilst pregnant I discovered a love for baking and hoped that one day I could turn this new found passion into a business.

In 2008 Cake-it-Away was born.

For the first few years I focused purely on celebration cakes. I read every single book possible and attended a sugar craft course. In 2011 I commissioned my first wedding cake and have honestly never looked back. I eat (lots) sleep and dream cake and love to learn new techniques and keep up to date with current trends. 

I have a real passion for anything cake and enjoy every part of the process from meeting with perspective couples and turning their dream cake into a reality.

Elaine made the cake for our wedding on 26th May, it was absolutely brilliant! Everyone thought it was delicious and it looked stunning. We had three tiers with victoria sponge on the bottom, then lemon and carrot cake on top. Would thoroughly recommend Cake-It-Away!
