Peedie Kirkwall Cakes started its cake journey in 2013 by myself Marie Logan, after redundancy from my Business Banking career helped me make the decision to do something I enjoy. I'm completely self taught and have loved every challenge each cake has given me. It has been a absolute pleasure being involved in so many special occasions in Orkney from weddings to christenings, birthdays to cake replicas for businesses. I have loved making every single one!
The biggest thing I have loved being able to do with my cakes is to raise money for local charities. My cake followers have helped me raise money for Clan and the Balfour Maternity unit and more recently they helped me raise over £2000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young in memory of local lass Freya Dalrymple.
Making cakes has also given me the chance to travel further than Orkney to provide wedding cakes and birthday cakes. I've been involved in a few wedding in the Aberdeen area and have also been given the opportunity to create a cake for a celeb wedding in LA.
But of course I couldn't do all of this without the help of all my lovely customers in Orkney!
