Here at Copper Spoon Cakery, we believe every cake should be worthy of celebration.

All of our bakes are made with high quality, organic and local ingredients wherever possible, so you know they'll taste as great as they look! Our flavours are unconventional and change with the seasons, bringing an altogether new experience to cake tasting.


We're based in the beautiful town of Ilkley, West Yorkshire and trade on the local Ilkley market and at wedding fairs in the surrounding areas, including Leeds and Harrogate.

Hi! My name’s Alice and I’m the owner of Copper Spoon Cakery. I’m a self-taught baker with a passion for creating beautiful cakes.

I've been baking, drawing and painting for pretty much as long as I can remember. From oil paintings to sponge cakes, I love experimenting with new designs, materials and colours.


Copper Spoon Cakery originally started as a blog whilst I was working full time in an office; I found it the perfect creative outlet for which I lacked in my daily life, as well as a way of documenting the many cakes and designs that I produced in my little kitchen at home.


In October 2017, I left the daily grind of the office behind and started a home baking business in Ilkley, and I've never looked back!

Along with my creative passions, I'm also totally passionate about great food. It's important to me that my cakes taste as beautiful as they look, so I use locally sourced and organic ingredients wherever possible. My cake flavours are unconventional, a little like myself, and change through the seasons to ensure the best produce is available.

My intention is to bring something new and exciting to the market, taking inspiration from Australian cakeries and steering away from the "novelty" market.

I hope my creations bring a little bit of happiness to those who taste them!
