Let's meet together, I am telling you more about me...

Are you celebrating something?

about me

about me

My name is Patricia Lafargue. I don't need to use the word "French" in my business name for one good reason: I am a real French national and all Belgians know it immediately when they hear me speaking! 🙂 Unlike others, no need for me to pretend to be French because I really am! I come from the Aquitaine region, a few kilometers from Bordeaux, and I live in Brussels since 2016.

 

I always do my very best to deliver amazing and original cakes in Brussels for all occasions. Each cake is an artistic creation that will make your celebration beautiful and unforgettable. Truly, I am specialist in sugarpaste cakes but I also do naked cakes and many others. I like to make as well cupcakes, cookies, homemade macarons, popcakes and french patisserie. I love to create unique treats for your private or corporate celebrations.

 

Patricia Creative Cakes is a small woman-owned business. We are not a pastry shop so please don't call me if you need a cake for today or tomorrow! I am not making anything industrial and I bake everything on special request using the best ingredients and my own hands. I design cakes for all types of events including weddings, birthdays, christenings, communions, Halloween, graduation, hen parties, baby showers, Mother’s Day, Christmas, Easter, corporate events including the launch of new product or the opening of a new shop...

 

I created this site to share with you my passion.

 

My background and my work approach

Patricia Creative Cakes

I left France in 1998 and I moved to London to learn English. Expatriate for more than twenty years now, I have been living fourteen years in the UK, five years in Spain (where I opened my first pastry school) before starting to experience a new way of life in Brussels.

 

I started cake decorating as a hobby in 2012, and my purpose was simply to make my family and friends happy. First, I discovered the cupcakes world and the sugarpaste modeling during my first cupcake workshop at Posh & Swanky in Halifax. I really enjoyed it so I decided to start a new career!

 

After graduating from David Cakes Masterclasses, Slattery, Olivier Bajard International School Pastry and many other places, I launched my own cake business in Sitges (Catalonia). It was such a great success and, for more than 4 years, I baked a lot of amazing cakes (many of them are displayed on this website). I also organized hundreds of workshops to teach to many kids and adults how to make beautiful cakes. I loved to see my clients so happy. After 4 years of hard work, and having built a reputable name in Catalonia, I sold my Spanish business to Berta's Fantasy Cakes. At that time, I was feeling very exhausted and I really wanted to change the way I was working.

 

I moved to Belgium in September 2016 to develop a new business project and experience a different way to work.

 

When I arrived in Brussels, I was proposed to become the store manager of the Le Creuset store and I decided to accept this exciting challenge. But my passion for cake design did not disappear and I decided to setup a new cake business here in Brussels as a second activity. In February 2017, I obtained a pastry and baking certificate from the Belgian authorities allowing me to make and sell my cakes in Belgium. Very quickly, I did not resist to launch a new company named Patricia Creative Cakes and, mid June 2017, I finally started my activity of cake design in Brussels on the prestigious Avenue Louise. Quite immediately, lots of individuals, charities, small and big firms like Hard Rock Café, Voxbone, Easyfairs, TakeAway.com, Gezinsbond, Brussels Parliament, SAP, Salesforce, ScanSource and many others started to count on me for their celebration cakes.

 

My Facebook page is followed by more than 31.000 persons and it is great to be able to share all my work with so many people... I also share a lot of my cakes on Pinterest, Flickr, Google+ and Instagram.

 

Since July 2018 I am the store manager of the brand new Chocolissimo & Zaabär flagship store. The store has been completely renovated and we are now offering 500m2 entirely dedicated to the chocolate world! Making amazing cakes stay my secondary activity.

 

Kind regards,

Important things I wish to share with you

Patricia Creative Cakes

Please note that we are not a pastry shop! Too many visitors still think that they can pop up to our place and buy ready-made cakes... That's just not the way it works! I design personalized and custom-made cakes on special order for all your private and corporate events. All my cakes are personalized so cakes must be ordered a minimum of 5 days in advance. Don't call me if you need a cake for today or tomorrow!

 

There is no need to visit our office to order a cake. Everything can be done online (even from overseas) using email, chat or even WhatsApp. Payments are securely processed online if you have a Bancontact, Visa, Mastercard or Maestro card. On special request we may accept payments by Paypal, Revolut or Skrill. We also accept bank transfers into our ING corporate account. No cash payment is accepted. I am not confirming any order until full payment is received (with exception for government agencies).

 

We can meet together for large events or weddings but it will be organized by appointment only. I am not always at our offices but rather at my workshop or working at the Chocolissimo & Zaabär store. Please don't come to our reception without an appointment, you may be greatly disappointed!

 

I am not accepting orders placed at the last minute so you will need to contact me a minimum of five working days before your event. The sooner you can order your cake, the better it is. Some months are particularly busy and clearly December is one of the busiest months! So make sure you book your cake as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

 

Pick up of your cake can be arranged at our offices on Avenue Louise from Monday to Friday, 10h-17h. No pickup can be made on Saturdays and Sundays because our offices are closed. Deliveries can be arranged all days including week ends and bank holidays.

 

Finally, let's be clear about the prices. I am offering discounts for cakes serving 20 or more. No need to ask me for discounted prices for smaller cakes, you will be disappointed. No need also to tell me that you can find cheaper prices elsewhere. Of course, you can. But please ask yourself the right questions: Will you get the same cake? What ingredients will be put in the composition of the pastry? How many hours will they work on your cake? Will you deal with a reputable registered company or someone working illegally from his/her home? Is the cake designer licensed to sell cakes or not? Is the workshop authorized by AFSCA? Can the cake designer make an invoice? Can you contact the cake designer anytime? Will you be sure to be delivered on time? Etc... Once you have answered all these questions then I am sure that you will understand that a custom-made cake baked and designed especially for you cannot be priced like an industrial cake... I am an artisan and I am rather proud of being a woman-owned business. I deal with high profile clients most of the time and I am a professional cake designer. Please consider my work and dedication and do not ask me to make cheaper prices, you would certainly upset me.

I wanted to thank you so very much for helping to make our baby shower so perfectly sweet! Everyone was just amazed with how perfect everything looked and of course it was all equally delicious. I loved the bunny topper so much that I'm trying to figure out if I can preserve it somehow. Just completely precious. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. It was so much fun to show up and see your stunning works of art. They were such a hit. Much love,

Kathy Foster

Our cake was absolutely gorgeous and definitely one of the highlights of our wedding day! Delicious too! Any advice on how to preserve the sugar flowers? Thank you for helping make our day extra special! Once I have photos from our professional photographer I'll send them your way. Sincerely,
