Sisters and self-taught bakers, Anika and Reena, are the imaginative duo behind Love Rosie. Based in Stanmore, Love Rosie create stunning cakes individually designed for all occasions, from birthday celebration cakes to tiered wedding cakes. Their concept is simple – to bake and style cakes that taste as incredibly indulgent as they look.
Specialising in buttercream, semi naked and naked cakes, Love Rosie like to be as natural as possible and love using seasonal decorations including fruits, berries, edible flowers and petals to style their cakes. It’s this level of decorative detail that gives Love Rosie’s cakes an unmistakable elegance.

Small but mighty, Victoria Yum’s bitesized bakery in London Fields bakes 7 days a week for its colourful mix of clientele, which include Cockneys, Rude Boys, Hipsters and people who’ve recently immigrated to the area from far flung places like Jamaica, India, The Middle East and Notting Hill.
