Since I was 3 years old, I have enjoyed baking and my passion and love for baking was enhanced during my time living and working in Paris where I worked for a prestigious international law firm as a bilingual legal secretary. I would spend most of my free time in the kitchen baking for my colleagues and became known as 'the Cake Fairy’ in my department. It was in my Parisian office overlooking the Champs-Elysées where the idea for Lilibets of Paris was born. I had fallen in love with baking and loved just as much the delight of my colleagues when I brought new cakes in for them to try. I subsequently applied and was accepted to the prestigious French culinary school Le Cordon Bleu. From the very first day I spent there, I knew that this was what I wanted to do. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Le Cordon Bleu and was delighted to come 2nd out of a class of 70.
I had my heart set on opening my own French Pâtisserie and this dream came true when I opened Lilibets of Paris in my home town of Southport. Since opening, we have expanded our range and incorporated handmade wedding cakes amongst other cakes. I am also honoured to have supplied Fortnum and Mason in London.
I am ably assisted by my assistant, Charlie, who is very capable and shares the same vision for creativity and perfection that I do. Charlie helps in all aspects of baking. On a daily basis we make French Pâtisserie which is available to take home or eat in with a delicious coffee or tea. All our cakes are beautifully presented, wrapped and ribboned as they are in Paris.
