If you are a regular to the Eastbourne Borough Market you may have already sampled some of the delights that Victorias Bakes has to offer. Traditional favourites like cakes, scones and biscuits are always popular. Victorias Bakes can provide Victoria sponge, coffee and walnut cake, chocolate cake, lemon drizzle cake, and apricot and orange cake.
All products are made using only organic flour, free range eggs and fair-trade sugar, cocoa, coffee etc. Every effort is made to buy local and the best quality possible.
How did Victorias Bakes begin?
19 months ago I baked the scones for a church cream tea. An elderly lady passed a comment 'you really should sell these'. I smiled and thanked her. Later that week the comment came back to me and I thought 'why not?'.
I contacted a local cafe owner who agreed to buy some products, he also suggested I try selling at Newhaven Street Market. In a short space of time I found myself trading at various local markets four or five days a week, with a loyal customer base already emerging.
As I write this, I have never been busier in my life and thoroughly enjoying work for the first time ever! Many thanks to that lady.
I am now trading on Eastbourne Borough Market every Wednesday and Sunday 9am – 4pm and at Newhaven Street Market every Thursday and Saturday 9am -2pm.
I focus on producing top quality bakes and excellent customer service at all times – I totally believe that a great reputation is any business's greatest asset.
Almost like Gran used to make
Nearly all recipes have been taught me by my grandmother, though I do admit to tweaking some of them a little. I concentrate on traditional cakes, scones and biscuits, as I believe they still appeal to old and young alike.
