Welcome to the fantastical world of Emma Jayne Cake Design.

Born in South Wales, UK, Emma Jayne trained in fine art and portraiture.  Emma Jayne moved into edible art after creating birthday cakes for her children and so began experimenting with edible paints and different edible mediums. Emma Jayne approached the event manager for Cake International Show about an ‘overhang’ for her competition entry and as it was an incredible piece, Cake International found a place to display it, and so Emma Jayne edible art installations were born at the show.


Emma Jayne likes to create pieces that are not only ‘fun’ but also pieces that make you think, “War Horse” was one such art installation. Emma Jayne loves the energy of using different colours and techniques, unexpected styles will inspire the many students who have been taught by Emma Jayne around the world. Emma Jayne will take commissions for custom designed cakes and loves discussing the design process with her clients. Emma Jayne’s legacy would be to give joy and happiness to everyone who sees and tastes her cakes and show that nothing is impossible in the world of Emma Jayne Cake Design.
