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.

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.

We use high quality ingredients, we don’t scrimp on flavours. Our eggs are farm-reared and free range, we use Tate and Lyle sugars and Callebaut Belgian chocolate. Where possible we use fresh purees and natural essences from Uncle Roy’s. We also make our own fillings such as our delicious caramel sauce.
