Our cake story began when Cynthia Vilcane (CV-Cakes founder/ designer) was a little girl and spent her summers with her favourite aunt in the country side. Her aunt was a very popular and keen baker in the beautiful part of Latvia- small Northern European country. She never needed advertising, word of mouth did the job. She used to get endless of orders and even national TV programme once turned up to see what the fuss was about. Cynthia was watching her aunt’s passion for baking entire childhood, especially she liked watching how happy people were when they received her aunt’s cakes, every order seemed so special and brought such happiness and smile to customers every time... Everybody who ever tried her aunt’s cakes would remember that beautiful smell, many layers of sponge filled with different flavours and rich amount of cream that would make your mouth water. It used to be like a tasty dream… but not possible and unthinkable at the time to Cynthia, because she studied at one of the best Design and Art schools in Latvia, where she studied painting, drawing, interior elements and design. Later she continued study interior design at University.
She worked in one of the most prestigious interior brands shop, later in popular interior saloon as a designer until the day when she moved to England, where she began to focus on home baking, what she found as a new hobby and it was not as a business goal at all. It started as presents for friends & family and they couldn't get enough of her cakes. After Cynthia’s beloved daughter was born, to celebrate every month until she turned one, Cynthia baked her a wonderful cake.
Every year Cynthia visited her favourite aunt in Latvia. One summer her aunt gave her some of her own recipes, tools and knowledge. Sadly that was the last time Cynthia saw her beloved aunt... After a sad loss, Cynthia wanted something to live on… gained inspiration, wonderful smell and the pleasure you feel not only eating, but also looking at the beautiful, delicious looking cakes so it was created 'CV-Cakes'.
