Hands up if you love cake as much as me?!
Ladies and gents, you know a piece of cake can change the world, well my world anyway! It makes that frown become a smile when you’re having a long day!
While scrolling the gram late one night, I came across some visually amazing cakes.
Sampling was a must and it turns out STACY BREWER CAKES are to die for!

Meet Stacy Brewer…
What made you become a bakery of these amazing cakes?
What can I say I love food! In particular food of the sweet kind; cake, desserts, and pastries- let me have it all! I am creative minded, so I thought why not be creative and design these beautiful elegant cakes and be surrounded by sweets 24/7! Heaven right? It is my dream job!
Who has been your biggest role model/mentor?
Christina Tosi, who is the chef, founder and owner of Milk Bar in New York. From the moment I got into cakes and baking, she has been my number one reference point. She is the chef that continues to surprise and delight with her
playful, sugar-laden creations. Her unusual flavour creations and combinations are what I love about her.
Coffee or Tea? How do you have it?
Ooo good question! I am going to go with tea. English breakfast, milky, 1 sugar. Always with a slice of Victoria sponge cake or lamington. Drool! The best ever! I am a sucker for a sponge if you can’t tell from my Instagram.
What makes a great cake?
I think it is about having the perfect flavour combinations. Starting with a super moist cake, nothing worse than a cake that is dry in the middle and around the edges- you want to make sure it’s super fresh and springy. Next port of call is having the perfect buttercream, not too sweet and then adding elements that create texture within. Think crunchy peanut praline or crew cheesecake pieces. Yum!
For those that aren’t familiar with Stacy Brewer Cakes. What can they expect from the yummy experience?
A cake that not only looks incredible but tastes even better than it looks.
Stacy Brewer Cake has a unique style, how would you describe it?
Sophisticated, elegant and fun. No two cakes are ever the same, they are customised to each customer’s design brief and using fresh seasonal florals and produce.
What is your favourite Cake?
My absolute favourite is a Victorian Sponge Cake layered with all kinds of berries, cream and sprinkled with jam- truly, nothing beats this combination.
