  • About Miscellany Cakes

    From Business Analyst to Confectionary Artist !

    With the opening of Miscellany Cakes, our founder Sarah Walsh has turned her dream of creating delicious and elegantly designed cakes into a reality:

    " My first ever creative cake was for my nephews first birthday almost a decade ago! Baking for family and friends became a new passion and it wasn't long before I wanted to progress from self-taught cake decorator to invest in my professional training.

    A leap of faith had me resign from a career in Financial Services to enrol at the Bonnie Gordon College in Toronto and what an amazing experience it was! I learned from renowned pastry chefs and qualified as a Confectionary Artist.

    I was fortunate to be selected for internship and learn first-hand from world famous cake designer Ron Ben-Israel in New York.

    Now based in the town of Portlaoise, I'm delighted to be bringing my designs to the Midlands and to be opening my cake shop in my Mum's hometown, in a premises that's full of family history.

    Happy customers are key for me and my passion is in perfecting every detail so that my cakes look every bit as good as they taste!

    Sugar flower decorations are my absolute favourite to make and I relish in the intricate, delicate techniques that bring them to life. "

  • Questions & Answers

    Do you have a catalogue of cakes that I can choose from?

    We focus on making one of a kind creations, according to your desires and inspired by your personal event, so we don't have a catalogue per se. You can visit our Cake Gallery of photos above, to get a flavour of our design style and to see what we can do. Please contact us with any enquiry.

    How much do your cakes cost?

    Since each cake is custom designed we don't have a fixed price list but please see our Pricing section for guide pricing and further details.
    We're very happy to design something that will work within your budget.

    When should I book my cake?

    The earlier the better to ensure a higher likelihood of having your date available and to allow the ample time needed to work on your design.

    Most couples book their wedding cakes six months to a year in advance. But that's not to say that we won't accomodate 'late in the day' requests where possible.

    A booking is only confirmed once the deposit has been received and where applicable the contracts have been signed also.

    Do you bake gluten free cakes?

    Yes we do offer Gluten free options! Click here to contact us for more information.

    Please be advised all cakes are prepared in a premises that uses wheat, eggs, dairy, peanuts and nuts.
