About

 

Celestial Cakes is a small West London bakery situated in Brentord Middlesex. The business started in August 2010 after the owner, Sarah Rees spotted a gap in the market for a wholesome, local and sustainable cake business.

Fed up with the plethora of cupcake establishments and synthetic looking cake companies that filled the market place she decided to open a small local business from her house, which just happened to be called The Old Bakery. Back in 1881 the house started life as a bakery, and it seems fitting that the house is once again filled with the delightful smells of breads and cakes.

As baker/owner of Celestial Cakes, Sarah has always been passionate about real food made with real ingredients. She believes in using local, sustainable and/or organic produce whenever possible. Only the finest organic flour, butter, eggs and milk are used in her baked goods. Sarah loves using vegetables as an ingredient in her cooking, and wherever possible will incorporate her home grown or locally sourced vegetables such as courgettes, parsnips, beetroot and squash into her cakes.

In the next 5 years as we see a decline in peak oil consumption it will become necessary to grown more of our own vegetables, and find locally based suppliers. The less ‘food-miles’ our food has travelled the more sustainable we will become. With this in mind Sarah has developed strong links with her local Transition Group in Ealing, and has been instrumental in a start-up veg box scheme called Edible Ealing. Sarah’s produce is on sale through the box scheme.

In addition W7Emporium, a local Hanwell based deli/café stocks lots of Sarah’s goodies including her famous gluten and fat free coconut and lime cake.

Sarah supports her local Farmers Market in Ealing and can be found there on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month. She also has a stall at Brentford Market on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month. She attends West Hampstead Farmers Market on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturdays of every month.

    A wonderful, fantastic, stupendous wedding cake arrived this morning, bursting with fruit and nuts and rich with dark chocolate and rum. Perfect in every way! I can’t recommend Celestial Cakes highly enough – you have a real talent for creating fantastic eats and the service didn’t disappoint either: personalised, with communication at every stage. Just wondering now whether if we lost a tier to our tummies, would anybody notice on the big day?!

    We wish you luck with this exciting venture and can’t wait to try your other recipes at the Town Meal in Middlesbrough! Cxx

    Sarah (Celestial Cakes) makes the best cakes I have ever tasted, and I have been eating cakes for many decades. The fact that some of them are also gluten-free is an added bonus! Do try her Coconut and Lime cake and her Ginger cakes! ‘Yay for Celestial Cakes!!
