I offer a range of flavours and bake with quality ingredients in my Bishop’s Stortford kitchen, rated 5 star for food hygiene.

All birthday cakes come with candles to compliment the design and theme.

…The Owner


I’m Louisa Piercy and Crumbs & Candles is my business.

I love cake. Who doesn’t?! So when I decided to take a break from a 14 year city career in accountancy to be at home with my children, I was thrilled to be able to start up a business in cake making and decorating that I could do alongside my job as Mum of two. It was while on maternity leave the first time around that I got the baking bug, and the creation of my own children’s birthday cakes that got me into cake decorating. The business was borne almost accidentally as friends and family started asking me to make cakes for them and even paid me to do it! So Crumbs & Candles was established in 2014 and the order book has been pretty full ever since. I’ve had some challenging requests but so far at least, only happy customers. I hope you will be one of those soon!
