Iced Yorkshire is a family run business based in York and was established by myself Angela & Doug, my husband in April 2014. I began my career as a Pastry Chef and Doug was a Conference & Banqueting Supervisor. It was love at first sight and we have worked together in Catering and Hospitality ever since we met at the age of 18.
Myself and Doug founded our business after seeing a gap in the market. There was no longer a specialist sugar craft supplies company within York and there was still a demand for one, with baking and cake decorating becoming quite a trend. Iced Yorkshire is striving to be the biggest sugar craft supplies company in Yorkshire. We listen to our customers and strive to ensure we provide the best possible customer experience.
In 2002 I discovered the love for cake decorating after attending many a night class with my mum. The result of this was that I got my dream job as a full time cake decorator, which in turn, progressed into our first business, ‘Angela’s Angel Cakes’ which grew to be a success.
Fast forward a few years we decided to turn this business into a sugar craft supply shop and so ‘Iced Yorkshire’ was born. This has also been a success.
A part of my vision for Iced Yorkshire was to create a Classroom where I could impart my knowledge and passion for Sugar Craft on to others. This led me at the age of 30yrs old, to attend College where I gained my level 4 teaching qualification. This enabled me to be a PME accredited Teacher.
The PME courses have proved to be very popular as are the numerous workshops we offer. This is a fun way to learn in a relaxed, friendly class environment.
As already mentioned, Iced Yorkshire is a family run business. This includes my Dad Barry, who is always on hand helping out in the shop, our daughter Maisie, and our latest edition little Doug.
In 2015 two learners enrolled on a PME class, the result being that they never left! Anne and Louise joined Iced Yorkshire and we all work together as one big team. They both have a passion for cake decorating and have gained practically as much knowledge as myself after listening to me dribble on every day!
When Anne isn’t with Iced Yorkshire, she works at a well know tea room in York City Centre. Her life is all about the great British cake she also enjoys baking cakes for the church, friends and family. Anne also plays squash in the spare time she has away from all things cakes!
In contrast, Louise is a Shepherdess who cares for over 300 sheep on her farm. But like any good shepherdess, she still has a love for baking and is so dedicated that she only leaves Iced Yorkshire when the demands of the Lambing season descends, twice a year.
At Iced Yorkshire, we offer PME courses, Workshops, and private 1 to 1 tuition. These run regularly throughout the year as well as the Seasonal classes we offer. Please have a good look on the website for further details.
I can’t believe I have got this far down and not mentioned cake!!
My love and passion for baking began when I was young. I would watch my mum bake from the Bero book and we would bake together.
Over the years I have seen trends come and go. I like to keep up to date with with what’s in and what’s not and I am always keen to try new things. I am not afraid of a challenge!
So if its a 5 tier wedding wedding cake or 6 cupcakes, please do enquire.
Iced Yorkshire has been a dream in the making for over 10 years and now Angela and Doug have made it reality after a lot of hard work!
