“Having grown up in a household where baking was a daily activity you could say that becoming a professional cake maker was always on the cards. Many of the recipes and techniques I use in my cakes have been handed down through my bake-loving family! No celebration or family gathering was complete without cake.
I graduated from Art School with a First Class degree in Fine Art Sculpture and spent 10 years working with some of the UK’s most acclaimed artists to curate public art installations. I continue to seek inspiration from the art world and many of my cakes have been inspired by the work of artists and designers, such as William Morris and Mischa Tauber.
Following a career break to start a family, in 2011 I formed Claire Owen Cakes, bringing together all aspects of my creative skill set. My cakes have been commissioned by style-savvy wedding couples and corporate clients looking for a unique statement cake, including Cath Kidston and Holkham Hall. Many of my clients are artists, designers and stylists.
I love creating cakes which take your breath away and that are irresistibly delicious. I relish the challenge of an unusual or quirky commission. But most of all, I love being a creative part of the most important celebrations in people’s lives.”
