Meet the Maker: Frostbite Bakery
As the days get longer and are filled with warm sun we can all start picnicking and celebrating outside, and what better way to indulge than with sweet treats and cake!
One of my favourite local bespoke cake makers is Frostbite Bakery, an award-winning family-run enterprise set up by Islander Ellie Brown only a few years ago.
Ellie specialises in delicious celebration cakes and treats such as macarons, meringues, cupcakes and cheesecakes. Providing baked goodies for everything from weddings to parties and high tea.
Priding herself on sourcing the best ingredients locally wherever possible Ellie's unique cake design includes her stunning naked and drip cakes. The best thing about ordering fresh is that you will always know exactly what is in your food, perfect for those with special requirements which the bakery will always aim to cater to.
“I started baking for friends and family, but my buttercream cakes became so popular that I decided I could turn my hobby into a business. I then took evening classes to learn how to master the art of decorating drip cakes, something we specialise in. My mother joined my business early on to help with the influx of orders, and we now cater for events an Afternoon Teas and supply other local businesses with our baked goods.”
Frostbite's most popular cake is their 'Unicorn' cake, you may want to have look at their other creations on their Instagram feed @frostbitebakery. Ellie also told us that they have even sent a special celebration cake to one of the Forts in the middle of the Solent on a RIB!
Currently cakes and treats can be pre-ordered online through www.frostbitebakery.co.uk
