Fiona Cairns was established over 25 years ago, after Fiona made a batch of miniature fruit cakes for friends one Christmas. Trained as both a graphic designer and a pastry chef, Fiona’s cakes were both beautiful and delicious- there was nothing like them on the market at the time.
Fiona’s husband Kishore suggested she market them, and so Fiona Cairns Ltd was born. Our first order was for the Conran shop, the rest is history! A barn was converted into a bakery in Fiona and Kishore’s garden, where a small team of bakers and decorators met orders from Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason.
In 2001, Kishore joined the company full-time as Managing Director, and the bakery moved out of the garden and into a state-of-the-art bakery in Leicestershire. We still pride ourselves on being creative, our cakes always reflecting current trends.
We now make over 2 million cakes every year, and meet orders from Waitrose, Harrods, Selfridges, and Le Bon Marche in Paris, as well as selling our cakes online. On the journey from kitchen table to busy bakery, we have maintained our commitment to creating beautiful, handmade cakes.
