Mama Cakes! Claire Houghton-Byers’ younger daughter Heidi excitedly shouted when she peered over the kitchen worktop and saw some of her mum’s cupcakes: and thus the name of Claire’s company was conceived.
…baked in Cumbria with love.
Claire’s varied professional experience developed into her passion for cake creating. Having worked as a nanny, a social worker, an air stewardess and a beauty therapist (amongst others), Claire is well-used to high standards of customer service, care and attention to detail. Claire learnt to bake whilst working as a nanny – where she also had to organise children’s birthday parties. She then widened her culinary horizons, tastes and artistic skills living abroad. Back in Cumbria and a mum, Claire wanted to provide cakes for her children’s birthday parties which would create lasting memories. Cakes for her children became cakes for other people – and Mama Cakes was born.
