Fusing her two talents, 17-year-old Grace Giffin turned her skill into a business with the launch of Grace's Baking Box during the first lockdown of 2020. 

"I have loved art and baking since I was small," says Grace, "and, while working for a café, I was asked to provide cakes for sale, which encouraged me to open my own cake business."

Grace's Baking Box began by making just a few birthday cakes a month, but word of mouth quickly spread and Grace soon found herself accepting several orders including wedding cakes. Grace now runs the business on a full-time basis.


She comments: "I still provide birthday cakes, but bespoke wedding cakes have now become the main focus of my business. I love using my talents to create something unique for clients, and they are always delighted with my individual creation for them."

Grace currently accepts bookings within a 40-mile radius of Bury St Edmunds, where she works from a log cabin in her parents' garden.

Detailing her future plans for Grace's Baking Box, she adds: "My plans for the business are to solely make wedding cakes and when I get to a stage where I have enough work, I would love to move to a rented space to work and build up a team."
