My name is Helen Furneaux-Knight and I am the lady behind the cakes from Cakery Bakery! I have turned a hobby & passion into a business and as you can see from the picture gallery I am creating some wonderful creations for some very happy customers.

Originally from Liverpool I have always enjoyed baking with both my Grandma and my Mum. Being brought up around homemade cakes I have always loved producing yummy treats for family. In 2010 this started to extend out to friends and friends businesses and the rest as they say, is history!

Whether it’s for a birthday, wedding, christening, promotional event, a thank you or a gift just because, I can produce cupcakes to meet your requirements. All cupcakes can be presented in individual boxes or in boxes of 6, 12 & 24. Cake pops can be boxed or presented as a bouquet depending on the quantity ordered. If you have a particular colour scheme in mind I can coordinate cupcake cases, icing & toppings to compliment. If you would like a cupcake or cake pop stand to present your yummy delights then I can provide this for a small hire fee & deposit (price on request).

I am based in Irlam, Manchester and will deliver within a 10 mile radius. If you live outside of this area then we can discuss an additional delivery charge or alternatively you are welcome to come and collect your order.

See a list of flavours or should you have an idea for a flavour that’s not on the list please contact me to see what I can do.


What people had to say about our lovely cakes…

Emma Dickinson Ace Wedding & Party — Promo Event

I have ordered cupcakes from Helen at Cakery Bakery for two promotional events at Ace Wedding and Party. I ordered Lemon cupcakes and Strawberry Chocolate cupcakes. They looked and tasted divine. All of my customers commented on how pretty they looked, how great they tasted & in particular how fresh they were. I would definitely use Helen & Cakery Bakery again in the future.

Hazel & Stephen Graham — Wedding

If you are looking for a beautiful, fresh and unbelievably delicious wedding cake then Helen is your girl. She made 110 amazing and unique cupcakes and a perfect white top-tier cake for our wedding at the end of August.

She listened to absolutely everything we said and let us choose the perfect range of flavours, types of icing, different colours and decorations. She also totally supported us in the ingredients we wanted and used organic flour, free-range eggs, fair-trade sugar, coffee and chocolate.

The kids cakes are still being talked about. My friend’s five year old son asked me constantly all day if he would be allowed to choose his own cake, (Helen had made a layer of cupcakes for kids with different designs like ‘Pepper Pig’ and ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’. When I actually took him to choose his cake he was so awestruck that he stood for about ten minutes shuffling from foot to foot before making his choice and carrying it off as though it was made of diamonds. About two hours later I heard him proudly telling anyone who would listen, ‘I had the Thomas one!’

It wasn’t just the kids that were impressed. Everyone took photographs of the amazing display and everyone chose their favorite flavours. They were so fresh and gorgeous and I have never tasted better cakes. I have no idea how she got 110 perfectly iced cupcakes all the way from Irlam to Carlisle without a single blemish but I would seriously recommend this lady if you are looking for a wedding cake that makes every single guest feel like THEY got the very best one!

Cherry Bowmaker — Mother of the Bride

Helen made the cake for our daughter Hazel’s wedding – 4 tiers of different flavoured cupcakes with a large cake on top for them to cut.

Not only did it all look amazing, but the cakes tasted delicious!

My favourites were the lemon ones, with lovely creamy lemony icing swirled on top! mmm!

A word of warning… don’t have one if you’re on a diet, you’ll want another!!!!!!!!

Karen & Steve Beckett — Sons 2nd Birthday

I am delighted with the cakes I ordered for my 2 year olds birthday. I asked for a tiger cake, 12 animal cupcakes and 6 chocolate cupcakes. The end result was even better than I expected. The children loved picking which one they would have and the adults were like big kids when picking theirs too! I would definitely recommend this lady, her cakes are awesome!
