Bespoke patisserie specialising in buttercream cakes, macarons and handmade chocolates
Welcome toGinger & Cacao!
Celebrate your occasion with beautifully unique and utterly scrumptious cakes and desserts by Le Cordon Bleu trained pastry chef, Jaime James.
From modern and chic, to romantic and fun, Ginger & Cacao designs are inspired by art, textures and culture. Our signature flavours are a fusion of classic favourites with a nod to my oriental heritage, which changes with the seasons to take advantage of ingredients at their best.
Each creation begins with an initial consultation to learn more about your celebration, followed by the creative process where we will work closely together to design your perfect cake or desserts. And because tasting delicious is just as important as looking gorgeous, I use only premium ingredients like Belgian couverture chocolate and free range eggs. To give our cakes and desserts an extra special touch, I also make our own fruit curds, caramels, ganaches and reduced-sugar jams.
All Ginger & Cacao creations are professionally made-to-order from our fully registered home kitchen based in Morden. Our delivery zones are usually within the Surrey and London regions, although we would be happy to quote for any destinations up to a 2 hour journey from Morden.
Growing up in Malaysia, I have always enjoyed baking for family and friends but it was not until I moved to the UK with my husband in 2007 that it became a real passion. We had planned to travel and see where our individual careers (mine being in insurance) would lead us. Unexpectedly, I found myself more and more captivated by the food industry and in 2011 I started writing a food blog.
I created Ginger & Cacao in May 2015 to create bespoke dessert tables, cakes, favours and pâtisserie-style entremets for all special occasions. Each one is thoughtfully designed with your theme and ideas in mind, then lovingly handcrafted using carefully sourced quality ingredients. People say, "When you love what you do, you won't work another day of your life" but I believe that when you love what you do, you work even harder to perfect your craft and make it special. I love being a pastry chef and the only thing that tops it is the smile of a happy client.
