About Us

"Throwing ourselves into baking and spending many enjoyable hours taste-testing"

We are Kate and Louise, old friends who entered the fun and chaos of motherhood at the same time and now have five children between us.

It's always been important to us to at least attempt a homemade cake for our children's birthdays.

Unfortunately with busy lives getting in the way, we found that most of our attempts to create a masterpiece ended up in a rushed midnight scramble the night before, and usually a good few glasses of wine to, erm,help.


At Craft & Crumb we hope to put an end to the mayhem and take a calm, and quite frankly, organised approach to baking our children's fabulous birthday cakes.

After throwing ourselves into baking and spending many enjoyable hours taste-testing, we have developed a range of beautiful cakes which nod to the classic designs we fondly remember, but have a current edge. They are simple to make (we promise anyone can make them) and they bake fresh, home-baked cakes that taste delicious, and won't have you spending hours in the kitchen.  We hope you like them!
