About Love Lily

Our History

Love Lily Cakes was established in 2009 after Gemma decided to turn a life long passion of baking and cake decorating into a career with the encouragement of friends and family.

Growing up I spent most weekends with my Nana Lily and loved our baking days. We would spend all day baking pies, cakes and other tasty treats for the rest of the family. I am completely self taught with 16 years cake decorating experience.

Wedding Cake Consultation

Consultations are available at Love Lily’s tea rooms in Sunderland. Clients are welcome to sample some of our delicious cakes, view many full size examples and discuss their design requirements in detail.

All of our cakes are bespoke and made to order. We can either design something new or you can choose a design from our portfolio. If you decide to choose a design from our portfolio we can change colours and flowers to compliment any theme that you may be having at your celebration.

Please contact us to make an appointment or find out more.

Gemma has baked an array of cakes for my family. She always pays great attention to detail and her cakes are a design feature that definately raise eyebrows. She’s made a casino themed roulette wheel, cupcake tower and wedding cake for us. Not only are her cakes a piece of art but they taste fab too. I’m waiting for the next occasion to order some more!

Gemma has made numerous cakes for many of my family…..ranging from baby shower cup cakes to 18th and 21st birthday cakes to xmas cup cakes……to my sister’s wedding cake and my engagement cake. The cakes have always looked great, tasted fantastic and gone down a treat…and to top things off, Gemma has always provided an exceptional, personal service. I thoroughly recommend everyone to use Love Lily Cakes!!

I have bought two cakes so far from Love Lily Cakes and both have been absolutely amazing! One was an Eiffel Tower with the most amazing detail and the second, a tierred 21st cake covered in roses. Both were stunning and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Not only did they look fab, they tasted brilliant too! Have recommended this business to many many people and will continue to do so.
