Maria cake baker designer Harpenden

Meet Maria

Maria da Silva is the chief baker, cake designer, and owner at Maria's and Yummy Mummys Cakes. Born in Portugal, Maria has been baking for as long as she can remember and grew up making traditional Portuguese Natas in her mother's kitchen.


Both a designer and an artist, Maria has been creating award-winning, freshly baked cakes locally for all occasions since 2010. Maria is famous as much for her moist sponge and creamy butter icing as her creative and stylish wedding cakes.
