Slice of Heaven cake studio is a gluten free bakery based in Amington village, Tamworth. We serve the Staffordshire, midlands and west midlands area.
We are a husband and wife team with a passion for all things baking and design. Our mission has always been to create gluten free goodies that taste good enough to share with family and friends without anybody knowing its gluten free.
Our daughter was diagnosed with coeliac disease at just 11 months old. The timing of diagnosis meant that we very quickly learnt that it was not possible to purchase gluten free birthday cakes anywhere.
This small thing was huge to me,everyone young or old should be able to blow out candles on a cake they can eat.
We spent a long time after her first birthday trying to source celebration cakes, we have 3 other children and they were going without cake too.
It soon became apparent that if we wanted our children to have birthday cakes we were going to have to make them ourselves.
After many interesting attempts and lots of binned ingredients I eventually managed to bake a cake that was edible and didn't resemble a pancake.
We now had cake for our family celebrations.
My friend's young son had been coeliac for many years and a chance conversation with him near his birthday had him explaining he had never had a birthday cake he could eat. I hatched a plan and
created a gluten free F1 car for him. It was far from perfect but he loved it as it was a cake for him.
This really got us thinking, it was not just our family that struggled with no cakes at celebrations,it was every coeliac family.
After a few months of practicing sugar craft skills and turning down requests from other people. The decision to register as a business was made and in January 2011 it was all made official and we could create cakes from our family kitchen.
In April 2014 we moved into our very premises on East View, Glascote as our home was no longer big enough to cope with the demand for our cakes. These premises were quickly outgrown and we moved into our current studio in Amington village in April 2015.
We are fully registered with Tamworth Borough Council and have full liability insurances and also both hold health and hygiene level 2 certificates.
Every cake is baked from scratch on site, even the buttercream is made with fresh ingredients.Where possible, we use natural ingredients to flavour our cakes and buttercreams. All product specifications are available on request.
