Hello my name is Nicola I am the designer of Penny Belle, which is a small homebased business based in Chadderton, Oldham which loves to make and bake! Penny Belle loves to make and sew too!
I started baking and making when I was a small child with my Mum, it is something which I have never grown out off!! Following my passion for design I trained as Fashion Designer at the London College of Fashion, which was an amazing experience.
When I became a parent I started making and baking for my own two children I wanted to make them something individual and personalised for them.
When deciding what my business name was going to be, it was not a difficult choice. I wanted a name which mean't something to me and part of me. What better way than blending my two daughters names 'Penny' from Penelope and 'Belle' from Lolabelle. In 2011 'Penny Belle' was launched, initially selling my fabric party bags and cupcakes. That was the start! These days I make Celebration cakes, Wedding cakes, Mini cakes, Cupcakes, Cake pops. They are available in a variety of bespoke designs and flavours.
Penny Belle loves to make and sew too! Fabric applique party bags, fabric applique cards, adult & childrens aprons, fabric bunting and cushions which all can be personalised apon request.
