How we became the Pretty Gorgeous Cake Company
After 3 and half years of running the business as Cakes by Cynthia, we decided to reflect our professional service and new premises with a name that captures our beliefs, by changing our name to Pretty Gorgeous Cake Company. Cynthia choose the name because “Pretty Gorgeous” was the phrase that featured most in the thank you texts, emails and cards received whilst running the business as Cakes by Cynthia.
Cakes by Cynthia was set up in 2009 by Cynthia Stroud who knew from an early age that she had a passion for baking and creating new flavours. With a keen eye for decor, the progress into professional cake making was easy. Leaving behind a corporate career, it has been dream come true to have the business grow and establish itself as the premier destination for wedding cakes in Hertfordshire, London, Essex, and Cambridgeshire with countless satisfied clients.
The relentless pursuit for perfection has been rewarded with lots of Pretty Gorgeous Cake Company designs being featured in prestigious international magazines including: Vogue, Brides, Wedding Ideas, You & Your Wedding, Wedding Cakes A Design Source, and Herts & Beds Wedding.
Pretty Gorgeous Cake Co is also a preferred cake supplier to the following prestigious venues: The Landmark Hotel London, Quendon Parklands, The Fennes, Tewinbury Farm, Blake Hall, Gaynes Park, Fanhams Hall, Hanbury Manor; Regency Banqueting, Ponsbourne Park, Hertford Castle, Blake Hall, South Farm, and Dyrham Park.

I set up Cakes by Cynthia in 2009 because the corporate life wasn’t right for me and I’ve always loved baking, for as long as I remember. I was allowed to bake my first solo endeavor cake for my 10th birthday … I’m still so proud of that cake! I loved combining flavours and still do this now. I like discovering unusual wedding cake flavours that taste amazing together.
I love romance and pretty things and every single cake we make is scrutinized till I’m happy. One of my favourite things is receiving a wedding cake cutting photo or a thank you card. It is a privilege being invited to be part of a couple’s wedding day. It’s a huge responsibility. One I never take for granted.
