Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, I am currently not taking orders for celebration cakes until the beginning of May 2020 (this may change, depending on Government advice) nor wedding cakes until mid September 2020 (which also may change, depending on Lancashire Registrars decision to start allowing ceremonies again). I understand this is a difficult time for those planning weddings or celebrations, but I can not re-open fully until I am told it is safe to do so by the UK Government – at which time I will update this page.

I am still working behind the scenes and am still open for taking orders for 2021, so if you are spending your time in isolation making plans for a lovely celebration or wedding, please do get in touch if you would like a cake for then.

I will of course keep you all up to date. Please take care – stay safe and stay home.

Much love – Rachel.

I’m Rachel, mum of 2 and nanna of 3,  I work from my home studio in a village near Preston, Lancashire. As a child I can remember baking with my mum back in Yorkshire, and those life lessons stuck with me. I began this particular chapter of my baking adventure back in 2012 with Cakes at Rachel’s, and it’s grown beyond my wildest imagination. Now here at the very top of 2020, my ambition is growing alongside my abilities, and we have a brand new name and a brand new look to the company.
