Whether your business is large or small it will have a company culture. It’s not always something that’s easy to define but it’s there, and depending on whether it’s fantastic or toxic it can either help or hinder your business growth. I once worked for a company, which shall remain nameless, [...]
I’m going to do it. Yes. I really am. I am mentioning the C-word… Christmas for all you dirty minded folk out there! I know it’s only July but there are just 161 sleeps until Christmas Day and if I’m starting to think about gingerbread gifts so should you. I daresay we probably think about [...]

Our 2015 cakes though were fricking awesome and we are lucky to have some fantastic clients who [...]
Everyone loves lego, young or old but it takes a bold person to decide to have it on their wedding cake. And yet, we are seeing an increasing number of people decide to introduce a bit of lego into their design. What I love about this is it perfectly combines traditional wedding cakes with a [...]
It was a couple of months ago that we were asked to create a cake for a good friend of mine's joint 60th birthday. They asked for a simple round or square cake, nothing too fancy, enough to feed 40 people. But in typical Brighton Cakes style we thought that would be really boring so [...]
