Established in 2015, Love from lila xx is run by me, Lara, an experienced baker and perfectionist based in Camberley. I use the best ingredients available, from responsible sources, to make absolutely delicious cakes that are perfect for any celebration.
Moist, light and full of flavour, my sponges are made with responsibly sourced ingredients such as local free-range eggs, Fairtrade sugar, and real Madagascan vanilla. I don’t use any artificial flavourings, always recommend seasonal ingredients and flavours, and use organically grown edible flowers so you can be assured that there are no nasty chemicals inside. My buttercream is made with organic British butter and an unrefined icing sugar which gives it a deliciously rich and caramelly flavour that isn’t sickly sweet.
When it comes to ordering your cake from me, I aim to make the process and pricing as transparent as possible, working to your budget. Every customer receives a ‘cake specification’ – this acts as both your quote and cake design. This contains delivery information such as dates and addresses, as well as a breakdown of the costs so that you know what you’re paying for, and how much. It also notes down flavours and cake sizes. The most important information in this document is the design section. This could be a sketch that I have produced, design inspiration in the form of photos of wedding dresses/flowers/other elements, or may also have images showing other cakes you have seen from my collection or wider on the internet. It reassures you that I have understood your brief, and it is my bible in the kitchen!
I have a 5* food hygiene rating from Surrey Heath council, have relevant public liability insurance and Love from lila xx Ltd. is a limited company, registered with Companies House.
When it comes to creating your cake, if it’s not perfect, it doesn’t leave my kitchen. It’s as simple as that.
I am currently based in Bagshot (near to Camberley, Chobham, Farnborough, and Woking in Surrey/Hampshire) and Feltham (near Richmond, Twickenham, Virginia Water and Walton-on-Thames in Surrey/London). However, I deliver all over the South East of England.
