About us

We’re Brighton Cakes, a leading cake design company based on the South Coast in the wonderful city of Brighton and Hove. We produce an amazing range of wedding cakes, birthday cakes, occasion cakes, corporate cakes and gingerbread houses from our kitchens in Hove.

Fay Millar

Brighton Cakes was founded in 2013 by Fay Millar who decided to swap her journalist’s notebook for a wooden spoon and some serious baking. Fay is entirely self-taught, having loved baking with her mother from an early age. Jam tarts as a five-year-old gradually morphed into celebration cakes and eventually sculpted cakes and sugar flowers. A giant bottom, a poo cake and a messy teenager’s bedroom were just a few of the creations she has made for her family!

Fay has honed her techniques since those early creations and now enjoys making cakes in a wide range of styles. Her hand-decorated cakes are delivered around the South East and beyond.

Nicci Thomas

Nicci joined Brighton Cakes in February 2018 and has really hit the ground running with a constant parade of amazing cakes. Nicci excels at modelling items out of fondant and can create pretty much anything you ask for with incredible attention to detail – you name it she has done it!

Nicci is also hugely talented when it comes to anything cupcake, possessing a fantastic ability to reduce down any design to fit onto the top of one of them.

Harriet Caton

Harriet, aka the Buttercream Queen, joined the company in summer 2018 and has since proven herself to be an invaluable member of staff. As well as being an accomplished baker, Harriet specialises in elegant semi-naked and buttercream cakes with striking designs that draw on fresh flowers and natural themes. Having said that, she also loves getting her hands on a bit of edible gold leaf when the mood arises!

Our philosophy

It’s simple really – to make seriously awesome cakes with a dollop of love, a spoonful of care and attention and a big pinch of fun to exceed your expectations and make your celebration really sparkle.

Quality is of paramount of importance but so is the desire to create cakes with a bit of “standoutishness” about them. We also like to make sure the cakes taste amazing too and have spent ages perfecting (and testing) our recipes.
