I’m Debbie founder of Katielou bakes.
I came to Market Deeping from Essex in 1992 and currently live in Frognall with my 3 children and 3 cats.
I’m a trained pastry chef and passionate about my craft.
I’m always looking for new ways to dress up cakes as gifts.
The name katieloubakes derived from using my daughters names- Katie and Lorna( they help at the Christmas markets )
I love creating cakes for special occasions and like to use as many different mediums -
ganache, buttercream, meringue, sugarpaste ,pastillage and isomalt. Brownies, cupcakes and luxurious drip cakes are my biggest seller.
My business has grown during lockdown( very fortunate), as I was able to offer a doorstep cake delivery service.
People sent cake with messages of good will and happy birthday surprises.
It was lovely delivering a tasty surprise to people.I also offer a postal brownie service where I can post to any uk address.
I cater for gluten free and vegan diets too.
I would say, my usp is personalised cupcakes and brownies delivery service.
Who wouldn’t want a box of cake or. Cupcake bouquet on their door step?
