Glitterbug Bakery is a small artisan bakery started in 2016 by Karen Brown and Stephanie Palmer, two cake-loving bakers who believe that happiness is a piece of cake!

Their aim is to make fabulous cakes for every occasion and every dietary requirement. They specialise in gluten, wheat and dairy-free cakes and biscuits - as well as ‘normal’ versions - that have all the taste without compromising on quality. The days of being excluded from having a show-stopping celebration cake because of wheat intolerance are long gone.

All their products are hand-made to order using the highest quality and, where possible, locally sourced ingredients, they pride themselves on not using preservatives.

Karen said: “Because we’re small and flexible, we can create and deliver celebration cakes to order, no order is too small or large. We’re bubbling over with creative ideas for handmade personalised cakes and decorated edible logo cupcakes or biscuits. Have a look at our Facebook page or website to see some of our recent bespoke cakes, such as an Aston Martin car for a true petrol head or a Charmander for a five-year-old passionate Pokeman fan - just tell us what you have in mind and we’ll do the rest”.

Karen continued: “We believe in supporting our local area and were busy most weekends last summer setting up our stall at markets and fairs all over Sussex. For example, at the Rye & District Country Show in August all the proceeds from the sale of our cupcakes were donated to St Michael’s Hospice”.

“We recently benefitted from some social media training for our business, this was provided by Edeal and funded by Wealden District Council. It’s so important to have a social media presence and it has certainly helped us with sales and bookings.”

Karen concluded: “Since we began baking a year ago we have been building relationships with Sussex businesses to supply their cafes with our delicious products and we’re now looking to expand further. We’re very happy to visit with samples so please get in touch via email info@glitterbugbakery.co.uk or call us on 01825 873333 to arrange an appointment to discuss your requirements”.
