About me

Wedding cake designer Hortensia Stahei established Hortensia’s Sweets in 2006. Hortensia’s background in art and design together with a love for baking and sugar-craft has ensured her a place as one of London’s leading cake makers.

Enjoyed at first by her family, then by her friends, Hortensia’s cakes and cookies were highly valued for their delicious taste and exquisite look; and her talents were soon more widely recognised among Romanians settled in the area, along with a broader spectrum of Londoners, who swiftly started to become fans.

The company’s joy and reward is even greater when it can surpass expectations, arousing admiration by the design of the product, and by their exquisite taste and flavour.
