Hello, my name is Amna Langah. I am a cake maker and decorator and run my own cake company with a focus on wedding cakes based in East London
I grew up in rural Iran and picking big, bright scarlet red poppy flowers in their hundreds and making mud cakes in the meadows we called home was one of my favourite pastimes. I always enjoyed baking and making my bakes look pretty. I have come a long way since making my first cake at six.
At university I studied for a masters degree in “Physical Chemistry” and obtained (somewhat shockingly) a distinction. After abandoning my plans to pursue a Phd course to study “Hetrogeneous Catalysis”, I spent several years working in education, scientific sales and online media. However, I always felt my career choices were not as rewarding or fulfilling. So, in 2012 I decided to set up my own cake company “Bespoke Cakes and Treats”. My aim was to provide beautiful, delicious tasting cakes at affordable prices. As the business expanded my husband Hassan came on board to be the most reliable main help (never failing to make those cakes look straight e.g!) in the kitchen and the delivery guy. Today, we are a proud team of four who works tirelessly to create and deliver over 200 wedding cakes in a year.
Since the beginning of our tremendously exciting journey, we have been humbled to be a supplier at some of the most prestigious venues in the capital, featured in wedding publications such as Hitched, Wedding Magazine, UK Brides etc, gathering thousands of followers on our social media platforms and seen us as the exclusive cake supplier to a very famous restaurant run by a celebrity chef for a number of years.
Nonetheless, our most important accomplishment to date is winning our trusted customers’ trust, continued support and love and we hope to maintain this for a long long time to come!
