Fay's cake journey


I'm Fay Stevens, the creative mind and baker behind Fay's Cakes. My family also plays a part in supporting my cake endeavours – my husband, who works as a university lecturer and helps me with deliveries and my daughter, who is passionate about weddings, enjoys discussing them at the fayres we attend. She's currently planning her own wedding and works in HR.

Having a background in fashion and textiles, I've always had a strong passion for all things crafty. Before starting Fay's Cakes, I spent years designing and creating custom clothing for a company based in the Scottish Borders. Even now, in my spare time, I continue to sew and enjoy various crafts.

Fay's story

It all began with baking cakes for my daughter and son's birthdays, I am entirely self-taught, drawing inspiration from cake decorating books, Pinterest, and online tutorials, especially developing a love for creating sugar flowers. The overwhelming feedback and support I received from family and friends over the years turned my hobby into a full-time profession.

In 2011, I officially established Fay's Cakes by registering my kitchen with the West Lothian Council. Since then, the reputation of Fay's Cakes has grown rapidly, and for the last eight years, we've been honoured with nominations at the Scottish Wedding Awards. My cakes have been featured in various wedding industry magazines and publications, which is an incredibly rewarding experience.

I take great pleasure in meeting with couples and listening to their wedding plans. My goal is to continuously create new and innovative designs, working closely with each couple to create the perfect cake for their special day. As cake design boundaries are being pushed more and more, I am thrilled to be part of this evolving journey.

The future of Fay's Cakes is ever-changing, and I am excited to see what lies ahead! Thank you all for your continued support! x
