'Mummy Bakes’, is based in Knutsford and they specialises in baking homemade, gluten-free cakes to order.
Her daughter’s early coeliac diagnosis (just before she was 2) was the catalyst to start Marianne's baking journey. Determined to make sure her daughter would not miss out on delicious treats or home made baking, she bought the books, the equipment and had a go. Starting small, she baked for friends, family and Knutsford Bake Clubbers who encouraged Marianne to try more and branch out.
Marianne Evans launched the Mummybakes brand in June 2013, and she has enjoyed the feedback and interest it has received so far.
"There is a common misconception that gluten free foods must be healthy and a bit serious. Of course they can be, as can any food, but my approach was to show that gluten free does not mean goody free. I specialise in providing a whole range of fantastically tasty cakes and bakes that maximise flavour. Whether for teatime treats or celebrations, my cakes can be your indulgence."
Please visit Mummy Bakes at the Knutsford Artisan Markets and enjoy these totally heavenly treats. These cakes can be enjoyed by everyone, not just those on a gluten free diet.
Marianne is now working with NoWFood (The North West Foods Research Development Centre) at the University of Chester, to develop her product to the next stage, and to expand her baking business.
All Mummy Bakes ingredients are certified gluten free. Many cakes and bakes can also be provided individually wrapped to avoid any cross contamination.
Retail enquiries welcome. Decorated Gluten Free party and occasion cakes are a speciality. Just call Marianne Evans if you'd like to discuss your needs, or visit her website.
