Beverly Hams’ love of baking has its roots in early childhood. Her mother ran a tea room from their smallholding in Cornwall, making her own butter and ice cream, and serving baked cakes to visitors to the waterfall in the beautiful wooded valley.
After forty years of teaching she retired and took the bold move to pursue her love of baking setting up A Piece of Cake by Bev.
Her cakes aren’t the pretty cupcakes or fondant iced cakes but tray bakes perfect for feeding family and friends or serving at events. She uses local and organic products and everything is freshly made. Available in different sizes her most popular include chocolate ganache, lemon drizzle, coffee & walnut and a gluten free range. You can order online or by phone and if in SN9 Beverley will deliver, or post so they’re with you the next day.
‘I attend a lot of local food fairs and have had extremely positive feedback. Customers love the local and organic products, the fresh bake and the personal touch of a message with your postal order. I’m adding new flavours all the time - the other day I baked a dairy and gluten free spiced orange cake and a dairy and gluten free lemon and raspberry. At Christmas I made gluten free puddings and cakes, frangipani mince pies, spiced nuts, biscotti and brittle all in pretty little bags.’
Wiltshire is like a bag of goodies to me, so many different things I love about it. I met my husband here, bought up my children here and now am running my cake business here. Beautiful places to walk the dogs, beautiful places to visit, good friends - who would not want to live here?!
Just beautiful, the views are amazing, and great walking underfoot. Fantastic if you have a dog because of the wide open spaces.
Full of local produce and you get some really different and interesting things there. Lots of lovely places to stop and have lunch so can make a day out of it.
