About

It was whilst running a chalet on a ski season in France that I was inspired to start my own cake business, when I discovered how much I enjoyed baking the daily afternoon tea for the guests. I set-up Dainty Bakes at the beginning of 2018, bringing together my passion for baking with my love for the natural environment. 

The name Dainty Bakes was inspired by my family surname 'Dainty', a word which also fittingly means 'pleasing to the taste'

and 'of delicate beauty'; perfectly reflecting the style of my bakes.

 

I specialise in creating indulgent chocolate brownies, which are handmade to order in my home kitchen, using only natural ingredients and delicious flavours. I work with environmental sustainability in mind and am committed to using only high-quality, sustainably sourced ingredients in my baking, including organic flour, chocolate and vanilla bean paste, organic Westcountry butter, free-range eggs and Fairtrade sugar.

In addition, every element of the packaging that I use is either recyclable, biodegradable or reusable. I keep waste to a minimum by using biodegradable baking parchment as well as making use of any brownie offcuts, by making them available to purchase, with £1 from each sale being donated to The Somerset Wildlife Trust (registered charity number 238372).

When I'm not busy baking, I love to go for long sunny walks by the coast or cosy up on the sofa with a good TV series.

Dainty Bakes is public liability insured and is registered with Taunton Deane Borough council, achieving a 5 star Food Hygiene rating.

Please get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
