Free-from business We All Love Cake celebrates new kitchen opening in Bishop's Stortford
We All Love Cake owner 22-year-old Grace Marshall celebrated the opening of her new kitchen with cake and bubbles on Saturday (Sept 25).
Grace's business specialises in cakes for people with food intolerances. All her baking creations are free from gluten, dairy, soya and nuts, with the option of being vegan. She offers a wide variety, from birthday cakes to cupcakes, in many different flavours, which can all be personalised.
Grace started We All Love Cake in her family kitchen at the age of 13. Inspired by her allergies and love for baking, she made it her goal to create cakes that were safe for those with intolerances and dietary requirements, while still being as enjoyable as any other cake.
With the recent lifting of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions, she’s seen a huge influx of orders and wedding cake consultations, which spurred her decision to expand and open her own kitchen in Thorley Lane West.
"I wanted to broaden my business so I can offer more people with dietary requirements a bigger variety," said Grace. "Having the extra space allows me to be more efficient."
One customer, Elaine, who has a gluten intolerance, said: "Most gluten-free options you can buy always seem to be stodgy. Grace’s taste like normal cake, it’s amazing how she does it."
Grace won a Bishop's Stortford Bake Off competition five years ago after impressing the judges, including the chief executive of Sawbridgeworth-based baker's shop chain Dorringtons, with her cakes.
In 2018, in the Bishop’s Stortford Independent's inaugural Indies community awards, she was highly commended in the Young Entrepreneurs category, sponsored by law firm Nockolds.
Grace has big plans for her business: "I’d like to have bakeries opened across the country so everyone can enjoy cakes regardless of what they can and can’t eat."
