Karen’s Cakes first shop opened in 1987 and ever since Karen Burton has been baking and decorating wedding and special occasion cakes as well as selling cake decorating supplies to both home and professional cake decorators. We have a portfolio of beautiful contemporary designs from cupcakes to wedding cakes, all ready for you to personalise and order either online, by phone or in our shop in Bishop’s Stortford.

A wedding cake from Karen’s Cakes is about the whole package, every element is as important as the next, from the recipes to the designs, our aim is to produce the very best of the best resulting in a perfect storm of unforgettable cake alchemy magic! Karen’s wedding cake designs are constantly evolving, incorporating the latest trends and twists to the collection and as with all our cakes they can be personalised to suit your unique wedding day.
