About Us

Adam Cox is an unusual cake artist. Edgy, fun and an individualist, he’s the antithesis of the traditional cake maker! At 18, with no formal training and to the surprise of his friends and family, Adam started working in a local cake shop back in his hometown of Stockport in Greater Manchester. He soon realized he had a natural, artistic talent and learned difficult techniques easily. After initially plying his trade in his native North West, Adam moved to London and took up a role as Head of Novelty Cakes in a well-known London cake shop where he created masterpieces for important events around the capital. Adam’s impressive skills have been learned ‘on the job’ or are self-taught, which is reflected in his original, personalized creations. The techniques he uses are not necessarily ‘by the book’, which gives him a competitive edge, allowing him to stand out from his competitors, especially as cake design and sugarcraft is a growing trend. Known for his sculpted cake creations, Adam approaches carved cakes with artistic flair, similar to a sculptor. He is often told that his creations are too good to eat! In 2014, Adam set up his own business, Adams Cakes, and he hasn’t looked back since! Adam has created cakes for a number of high-profile celebrity clients including David Gandy, Vicky Pattison, Ronnie Wood, Damien Hirst, Jimmy Carr, Mark Ronson and Jonathan Ross to name a few. Take a look at some case studies, or corporate clients! Adam has worked with many successful brands and organizations as well, such as the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, Strongbow, Tetley, Superdrug, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, NBA, Renault, Penguin Random House – the list goes on! In 2015 he appeared alongside Paul Hollywood in his BBC series Pies and Puds, teaching the man himself how to create a bespoke cake. Since starting his own business, Adam has picked up awards for Best Bespoke Cake categories at the Cake International Exhibition and Squires Kitchen International School of Cake Design. This is just the beginning of award wins for Adams Cakes!

We used Adams Cakes for our Wedding. We of course looked at many cake makers. Using Adam was one of the best decisions we could have made. Dependable, easy to work with, very accommodating -- and affordable. We had 2 flags on our cake (St Andrews cross and Zimbabwe) that turned out spectacularly well! Thank you Adam for helping us celebrate our special day! We of course, highly recommend Adams Cakes!

I was looking for a cake maker who would be up for creating a horror themed character cake. Initially, it proved harder than I thought to find. Then I came across Adams Cakes and after seeing his cake designs I immediately felt this is the cake designer I was looking for. And what a phenomenal cake he made! Adam is professional and communicates very well through the process to find the best result. I sent some ideas of the Tarman zombie character and was so glad that Adam loved this idea too. He then also added his own vision and the result is simply amazing. It's a wonderful artwork and my partner was surprised and loved it for his birthday. The cake also tastes delicious! Thank you again Adam for taking on this idea so well and creating such a memorable cake for us!

Adam was fantastic from start to finish. He was accommodating of my request and budget, he communicated with me throughout, and of course he absolutely delivered on the cake itself! My husband was bowled over by the detail of his guitar cake (based on his favourite guitar) Thank you so much Adam! I wish I could give more than 5*s

I had seen some of Adam's incredible work online so decided to get in touch with him to see if he could make a cake for my girlfriend's birthday. The experience was amazing from start to finish and we couldn't have been happier with the end result. Adam is truly a phenomenal talent and the cake looks and tastes incredible. It's genuinely like a work of art! Additionally, Adam is highly professional, extremely friendly and he went the extra mile to make something that felt really personal to my partner and really reflected her character. The level of detail in his work is astounding. Adam was very communicative throughout the entire process and took a keen interest in trying to find out as much as possible about my partner to try and create a cake that would truly do her justice. It's the extra attention to detail that really makes his work stand above his competitors. You can tell he is extremely passionate and really wants to make something memorable and resonant. He far exceeded our expectations! We couldn't be happier with his work and we can't wait to see what he does next. Huge thanks from Ian and Jess!
