About Made by Adele
My love of pastry was inevitable having spent my younger years baking with my mother, in awe of her birthday cake creations for my older sister and I. Growing up, the path between the kitchen and dinner table was well trodden, so it was no surprise that once I got into the food industry I was hooked. I spent over 15 years working in food development for some of the UK’s most recognised retailers and restaurants, until my love of creating food for other people led me to my own business. I started Made by Adele in 2020 and operate at my registered micro bakery in Hampton (rated 5/5 (very good) by Richmond Council). I hold a CTH Diploma in Culinary Arts, having been trained by a michelin star chef, and an Advanced Level 4 Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate.
Every cake is delicious, beautiful, carefully designed and handcrafted by me. You will never see the same cake twice. Every element of my cakes and decorations are entirely handmade and natural; never processed, no colourings, preservatives or artificial flavourings and you will never find fondant in my kitchen.
Provenance and quality are key to my products and I use the highest quality ingredients that I can get my hands on. I use organic Shipton Mill British flour, organic Chocolat Madagascar single origin cocoa, fair trade sugar, free range eggs, responsibly sourced real Madagascan Little Pod Vanilla, single origin carbon neutral Birchall Tea and finest sustainable Callebaut Belgian chocolate. Flowers, fruits and herbs are often organically homegrown or locally sourced, and other fruit and vegetables are sustainably sourced where possible. Seasonal produce lies at the heart of my business and I offer products to reflect the seasons, showcasing the best of British produce with a regularly changing menu. I try to source local products as much as possible, such as honey from Bramble Hill Farm in Walton, stout from Big Smoke Brewery in Esher and coffee from London Roasteries such as Old Spike - the UK’s first social enterprise speciality coffee roaster.
Supporting charities close to my heart is something I’m really passionate about and I fundraise at least once a year (or more) through various business channels so keep an eye out on social media!
I believe in running the most sustainable business possible and constantly consider how I can reduce my carbon footprint and do my bit for the environment. Read more about how I manage sustainability within the business here.
For me, nothing is better than sharing delicious and beautiful cake whilst making memories with my friends and family and I hope to be able to create this for you.
"Book Adele now!"
I don't think any words can do justice to how beautiful and how delicious our cake from Adele was. We ordered a passionfruit white chocolate cake - there wasn't a single person who didn't enjoy a slice. Everyone commented on it and nobody had ever seen a cake so beautiful. Book Adele now!

"This is literally the best cake I've ever eaten"
I am the baker in my family, so for my birthday I wanted someone else to do the work. Adele's cake did not disappoint. There was rapt silence as everyone tucked in, then a family friend said, "This is literally the best cake I've ever eaten". Amazing.

"Her cakes are perfect"
I was lucky enough to stumble over Adele’s business & have been fortunate to have ordered over 8 cakes & probably 4 dozen cupcakes. Needless to say her cakes are perfect. Every single cake/ cupcake tastes better than the last. They are true masterpieces & a true reflection of her skill & passion! Absolutely gorgeous cakes.

Just wow! The special celebration cake that Adele made for me was so delicious and unctuous. She hit the brief perfectly! All my friends absolutely loved it too, both for it's stunning appearance and its flavour. Would highly recommend - thanks Adele, you really made my day!
