Craft Cakes is located in North London and we specialise in custom cakes and desserts for weddings, christenings, birthdays and anniversaries, as well as corporate events.

Craft Cakes owner Leigh Koh-Peart left a career in advertising and events back in her native Singapore and went to culinary school in New York City to pursue her dream.

After graduating, she worked with New York’s renown cake designer Ron-Ben Israel, where she developed her skills for creating exquisitely-styled wedding and celebration cakes.

She moved to London in January 2009 and worked as a pastry chef at Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant Sketch before starting Craft Cakes in July 2010.

Julie attended Marvellous Macarons! in May 2012, reviewed on 6 June 2012

I booked a private class for 4 to try and learn more about the mystery of the macaron. I had previously been to a different class but left unsure and without a feel for making macarons.

Leigh's class is straight to the point and guides you through each step of the process carefully with vital tips throughout to make it all a lot easier, how to grind almond mix, different steps to meringue, how to get the batter to right consistency and tricks for piping and baking. Her recipe works perfectly, just may need a little adjustment with your own oven. I loved also making fillings, her ganache is amazing and so simple to make andthe buttercream is silky and delicious!

Leigh is lovely and very professional. She takes into account what you are trying to achieve, having the flavours we were interested in ready in the written recipes and ingredients. We all left inspired andhave been practising since. Personally she encouraged me to buy a Kitchenaid and I have made at least a couple batches a week since, something I would never have had confidence without this class. Thank you Leigh, I will be back for some cake decorating soon!

Team Building Event

kpasu81 attended Craft Cakes Private Class in December 2011, reviewed on 2 December 2011

In preparation for the upcoming Christmas holidays, Edible Experiences organized a Christmas cookie decorating class for my team and I. In addition to being something very different from the typical corporate networking event, the event provided a venue and activity that really allowed the team to network, bond and work together while preparing for the upcoming festive season.

Leigh was an excellent instructor who explained the intricacies and delicacies of cookie decorating to us, showed us a few examples, then allowed us all to get our hands dirty and decorate our own Christmas cookies (with her help and supervision of course).

An overall informative, fun and tasty team bonding experience!
