Almost too good to cut into … great value for money!

Vickie made my daughter a Peppa Pig themed 3rd birthday cake and it was totally amazing! My daughter was delighted with it! The attention to detail was impeccable and it was a real piece of cake art! Almost too good to cut in to! The cake was truly delicious and made totally to my request – sponges, fillings etc. and was great value for money! I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase more cakes in the future and can not recommend Victorias Sponges highly enough! Thank you Vickie! Mrs Crickson.

I could not recommend Victoria Sponges enough!

I chose Victoria Sponges to make my wedding cake and it was the best decision I ever made! Victoria was so helpful in helping me choose exactly what I wanted and made the whole process stress free. The cake itself was impecably decorated with great attention to detail and the taste was equisite. Since my wedding 4 of my friends have asked for Victoria’s details for cakes for christenings, weddings and birthdays as they were so impressed. I could not recommend Victoria Sponges enough! Beautifully decorated and tasting cakes! – Laura (Mrs Gregory)

About Me

Victoria Ball

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. If you have clicked on this tab you want to know more about me, so here goes:

My name is Victoria or Vickie for short, and I live in Rainhill, Merseyside, and have done all my life. I like to think of myself as a friendly, outgoing, well organised person. I started baking as a child helping my Gran and Nan bake delicious cakes, scones, pies, and potato cakes!

During college I attended an evening course in Royal Icing cake decorating. My first job was at a bakers and confectioners in the area, icing and decorating fresh cream cakes, donuts and fondant fancies! Unfortunately I only had one shift a week, and left to take up a job that offered more hours, and this is where my cake decorating was put on hold for a few years. Although I was not working within a baking profession, I still enjoyed baking as a hobby for friends and family.

I completed a Diploma in Diet and Nutrition and got myself a position working at a Dietetic department in the NHS. Within this post I've completed a Foundation Degree to become an Assistant Practitioner, and my current job involves me encouraging patients to increase their energy intake to help promote weight gain. One way to do this is 'by eating more cake!'

I attended an evening class in sugar paste skills for cake decorating. I absolutely loved it! I routed out my cake decorating equipment from my college course and off I went. I started making cakes for family and friends birthdays and special occasions, and received really lovely compliments about them. This sparked a light bulb moment could I run my own business, selling cakes for a living? So I thought why not give it a go.

This takes us to present day, and the creation of Victoria Sponges Rainhill Limited. I hope my cakes bring a smile to people's faces as much as it brings a smile to mine making them!
