Meet the Team
Hi there, I'm Elle, and I am the owner of Belle's Bakery.
Belle's has been a dream of mine for many years, don't ask me why, but I've always had a love of cakes. From making cakes and cupcakes with my mum as a child, to the excitement to see what amazing cake my Nan had created for me and the rest of my family on our birthdays, to just generally loving cake!
My first job was in a bakery at the age of 16. I loved this job so much I worked my way up through the business for the next 6 years, gaining a multitude of knowledge of the day to day running of many parts of bakery life.
I then spent a number of years living and working abroad where I also set up my first small business, making yummy British pies - I complete hit with the ex-pat's!
Baking has always been my passion, I love every part of it.
In 2015, once my feet were firmly back on UK soil, I set up my occasion cake business - Belle's Bakes. This was run in my mums kitchen in the evenings and on weekends around my full time job. Belle's became so busy that I knew it was time to take the next business step, and in August 2018 Belle's Bakery opened it's doors on Wrotham Road, Welling, Kent, and I couldn't have been prouder.
I know have a fantastic team around me who ensure our bakery is the best of the best (even if I do say so myself!)
We're a very small team who work extremely hard to ensure our customers receive the best possible service, with fresh quality bread, pastries and confectionary made and sold daily in our shop.
Bill the Baker! An incredible wealth of baking knowledge, professionally trained in both bread and confectionary baking in Scotland. He has worked in many prestigious hotels, and large and small bakeries around the UK. We're very lucky to have him on our team bring fresher than fresh bread to our shelves every day!
Lynn our bubbly Manageress! Known by almost every customer that graces our doors, Lynn is bright and breezy, has a memory like no other I know, and always manages to put a smile on our customers faces. She'll go out of her way to make sure you get what you need at Belle's.
Lucy our cake maker. An incredibly talented young lady who is the most recent member to our ever expanding team. Lucy works with myself to create bespoke and beautiful cakes for our wonderful customers. She specialises in buttercream designs, you'll find a lot of her work in our Buttercream cake gallery.
We also have a small front of house team who work alongside Lynn to give our customers first class service on a daily basis.
From all of our little team, we thank you for all the love, support and loyalty you've given us at Belle's Bakery. We wouldn't be doing these jobs we love so much if it wasn't for you.
