Meet Heather

Well hello there!
I’m Heather Cutenar, owner and Head Cake Designer at Cake Empire. I started my culinary career as a Pastry Chef at 16 working in some of London’s top bakeries and restaurants, so as you can imagine, I have a very sweet tooth and to be honest I’m surprised I have any teeth left! I came up with the idea of Cake Empire as way to share my creativity and my love of cakes with everyone. Surprisingly it didn’t take me very long to come up with my business name. I knew I wanted it to sound grand and empowering which made me think of the word Empire, and since it’s a cake business I thought why not put the word cake in front of it? Hence the name Cake Empire.

The more cakes I baked and designed the more I fell in love with my job. I really enjoy making food and sculpted cakes, bring on the burgers and cute little animals!.Even though I love cakes, there are certain things that I prefer not to make as they aren’t part of my creative vision. As we all know, to get the best results a lot of passion and effort must be given and I believe I should love creating everything I make. This means that there are some request I do politely decline, such as cake pops, sheet cakes and plastic Barbie doll cakes, this is so I can shape my business in the way that suits me best by doing cakes that I find challenging and fun to do.

This blog will keep you up to date, with everything that’s going on with Cake Empire, including behind the scenes, competitions and the events we’ll be attending so keep your eyes peeled ☺.
