About Us

Our Story


Cakes by Theresa is one of London’s finest cake and cupcake makers, combining the spirit of the Caribbean with the vibrancy of East London to provide customers across the city with an incredible range of baked delights.
Theresa Brown set up Cakes by Theresa in 2012 after many years of baking. Her first professional cake was made for her daughter’s school during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, followed shortly after by selling cakes at an exhibition throughout the Olympics. Two very important events for Great Britain and one very important year for the birth of Cakes by Theresa.

From grown up to Professionalism


Having grown up in the Caribbean, Theresa began baking at the age of just 11, and went on to study art, food, nutrition, textiles and design, all of which play a prominent part in the cakes she produces. Everything from Cakes by Theresa has a strong design-led approach and is baked using years of skill, meaning they look great and taste even better. If you have a design in mind, or need some inspiration, Theresa will be able to help take your ideas and turn them into a master piece of cake art ready for your special day.

Helping Hands


Theresa’s bakery has a strong family and charitable connection. As a wife and proud mother of two children, she often calls on her family to help her run the business and ensure her customers are delighted by every cake. They can often be found helping her run her market stall. She also works hard for the local community, donating cakes to raise money for charities such as McMillan, Alzheimer, Hestia, Hackney Food Bank and Immediate Theatre.
