Hello, and welcome to Lily's Bake Box. I'm Charlotte and I'm the founder and owner of Lily's Bake Box.
You might be wondering where the name Lily's Bake Box came from....well when I was trying to incorporate my own name into the name of the business it just wasn't working. It didn't roll off the tongue. That's when I decided to use the name Lily. Lily is the name of someone I lost who was very special to me and it's such a beautiful name. Plus it went well in the business name I wanted.
A bit about me
Baking and cake decorating for me is a passion and one of my biggest loves. It's when I feel my most relaxed and get the most enjoyment out of life. I come from a long line of bakers in the family, such as wedding cake makers and decorators and bread and biscuit makers. So my childhood was spent mainly helping my Mum and Great Nanna bake. Which was absolutely fine by me and I've stashed a few old family recipes too :)
It took me a while to decide to start Lily's Bake Box, it was what I always went back to when I was having a bad day and I always knew deep down that I wanted to have my own business. I'd had a little break from baking and then I started to bake a again and posted pictures on social media and that's when people started contacting me to make orders. That was the turning point for me where I realised this is what I'm meant to do and making people happy through cake was what I loved most.
Enter Lily's Bake Box
I started Lily's Bake Box in December 2017 and it's just kept growing and growing. It's taken me by surprise how well LBB is doing and in such a short space of time. My vision for LBB is to make glorious cakes that are a level above what you can find elsewhere, with my own creative stamp on them. It's all about amazing tasting cake that looks beautiful and enticing. There's so much more to come and I'm excited that you're joining me on my cake journey.
