About the business

Hi! My name is Louisa and I started Croft Cake Design in a little crofters cottage on our farm on the border of Wicklow/Carlow, Ireland. Here we grew our own selection of organic vegetables and herbs and after some experimentation, soon realised that baking some of them into cakes was a very good thing!

I began baking after becoming a full time mother in 2014. I did a lot of experimenting with recipes and pairing flavours and in 2018 Croft Cake Design was born.

I grew up in the UK and hold higher qualifications in art & design, ceramics and business management. All which have proved useful in cake designing, decorating and general running of the business.

I could be described as a sweet toothed perfectionist, naturally artistic with an eye for style and a love for simple elegant designs.

My kitchen at my home farm has been certified for use by the Health service executive of ireland. I am registered, insured and qualified in food safety and hygiene.
