About Us

Paula Cake Couture was established in 2010 by Paula Whitby, who launched her business from her home in Upholland, Nr. Wigan, Lancashire. After many years of training and baking Paula decided to change career path and to follow her true ambition in the art of ‘Cake designing’.

We offer a professional and personal service from consultation to delivery and set up of your cake.

At Paula Cake Couture we use only fresh and high quality ingredients. It is important that your cake not only looks fantastic but tastes delicious too. We have been awarded a ’5 Star’ Food Hygiene Rating (Food Standards Agency) from West Lancashire Council.


No obligation consultations can be held at Paula’s home or at an alternative meeting point, by appointment. During which you can talk through your ideas and themes. Please contact us to arrange your consultation date and time.


I offer a variety of courses in small groups ensuring maximum attention to students of ALL abilities, please see details under courses/workshops or email me for details. I also offer a one to one consultation in various techniques to suit your request, please enquire.  contact us

Photographs taken during classes and finished student work are available via my facebook page, please click the facebook tab to be directed to the correct page.


We can deliver your cake to your venue, some designs are very fragile and I would recommend this for those thus ensuring your cake is displayed correctly and safely. Delivery costs are £20.00 within a 15 mile radius and then can vary dependent on your chosen venue.


To secure your cake date a minimum 30% deposit is required. For wedding cakes the balance of your order is due 1 month prior to your wedding date.

*****Please note all deposits are non-refundable*****
