The focus at Simon's Bakery is on making Swiss meringue buttercream and ganache cakes that are are a sensation for the taste buds as well as the eyes.
Swiss meringue buttercream is made by whipping butter into a Swiss meringue base. The result is a lighter, creamier and less sweet buttercream than the grainy American buttercream. Additional flavours (fruit purees, caramel, chocolate etc) or colours can be mixed in to create the exact cake you want.
"Excellent communication, beautiful design, couldn’t fault any thing. Still can’t decide if it looked better than it tasted. Gorgeously beautiful delicious cakes delivered on time with smile"
"Simon made an incredible cake, both in terms of design but also taste. The cake design was modern and stood out vs all the other cakes we have ever seen"
"A 50th birthday is a big occasion, and requires an excellent cake! Simon worked so well with us to come up with an original design and superb set of flavours to create something very special.
We were delighted by his creativity and flexibility, and the cake worked so well visually, and most importantly, in terms of taste!
Just as importantly, Simon kept us informed all the way through the process and we felt very confident that this was one element of party planning that we were not going to worry about."
fun, colourful and delicious bespoke celebration cakes for memorable moments...
They say that size doesn't matter....in certain circumstances that may be the case, but I like my cakes to be tall. By default, the celebration cakes that I make have 4 layers of sponge cake inside which results in a cake approximately 7.5" tall, creating that real wow factor!
The number of layers of sponge inside the cake can be reduced or increased to cater for the correct number of portions, but at a minimum, the celebration cake will normally measure at least 5" in height with 3 layers of cake.
All the celebration and wedding cakes I make are bespoke, so please take a look at the gallery for some inspiration. I work with Swiss meringue buttercream and chocolate ganache rather than fondant and modelling paste. I don't make 'novelty cakes' per se, but can add a modern design twist if you do have something specific in mind. Take a look at my contemporary take on a children's safari cake or dinosaur birthday cake .
Most of the cakes I make contain eggs, dairy and wheat flour, however, all my celebration cakes can be made gluten and some dairy-free.

Thanks for the stunning birthday cake for my husband’s surprise 40th......it was delicious and think you totally nailed the brief with the bourbon salted caramel and brownies on top. It went down extremely well with all our guests and especially the birthday boy and his sweet tooth.
OMG! I had a cake made by simon upon recommendation for my sister in laws big 40th! I wanted drippy icing and flowers. The cake certainly did not disappoint, it was absolutely beautiful, the best tasting red velvet you will ever taste!! And i loveeee cake, it had organic edible flowers, glitter, chicolate bark it was better than anything i had imagined. I can not recommend simon enough it was worth every penny, if and when i need a cake made i wont go anywhere else thats for sure!
Thank you for this beautiful cake, it's honestly one of the best cakes I've eaten in a while and many of our friends asked for second serving! Just over half of the cake fed 20 people and we still have so much leftover
Simon has baked a few cakes for me and every single one has been delicious, that's why I keep going back for more. He's very creative and imaginative with his designs and flavours. You can never have just one slice, you always want seconds... I'd highly recommend Simon and will continue to use him. You won't be disappointed
I recently ordered a birthday cake for my dads birthday from Simons Bakery. It was beautiful, delicious and so well recieved! Truly was one of the most delicious cakes I have ordered in london and Simon was fantastic in customising the order to my needs. Highly recommend!
