Lydia Nelson

Hi, I’m Lydia and I am a proud mum of two lovely children and a wife to an eccentric husband, but also Head Baker and the Owner of Cuckfield Cakes.  Growing up I always had a passion for baking and hold fond memories of standing on a chair and helping my mum with her cakes as a little girl.  As I became a young teenager I started making cakes on  my own for friends and family.  At this point I was baking regularly and the more I baked the more I loved it. 

  In my early 20’s  I started to be commissioned to bake cakes for all occasions and this was the start of Cuckfield Cakes.   


I  have made it my mission to make delicious tasting cakes that also look beautiful on the outside too.  I pride myself in only using fresh, great quality ingredients and I bake everything fresh to your order.

My motto is amazing taste, amazing design.


You are in great hands as Lydia has her Level 2 Safety and Hygiene Certificate, a 5 star hygiene rating and  Cuckfield Cakes is fully insured with Product and Public Liability Insurance

Before I accept a commission, I always spend the time to establish exactly what you are looking for, discussing all aspects of your requirements from design to ingredients, therefore all our cakes are baked bespoke your requirements, ensuring every requirement is catered for and are very much individually designed for you.

If you would like some inspiration or ideas of the cakes I make please look on my, my cakes page alternatively feel free to use the contact me page to get in touch.

If you have any queries, please get in touch as I am more than happy to discuss all your options and ideas.
