“Must-try bake is carrot and caramel cake.”

Lucie Bennett’s must-try bake is carrot and caramel cake, legendary for its layer of salted caramel through the centre and fluffy vanilla cream cheese cheese frosting and candied orange. Baking judge Lily Vanilli said Bennett’s baking was the next big thing, because “she combines classic training with home-grown produce and a very unique approach.”

The Telegraph

"Lucie is one of the most exciting pastry chefs to emerge from the baking revival over the last few years. She combines classical training with a modern, fresh approach and wonderful homegrown produce. A true original - we were proud to select her as a YBF in 2015"

Lily Jones, Founder of The YBFs (The Young British Foodie) Awards & Lily Vanilli Bakery


“Creative, meticulous and great fun.”

Lucie designed and produced our wedding cake and patisseries. They were creative, looked amazing and tasted wonderful, using seasonal ingredients with subtle, unique flavour combinations. Lucie’s great fun, collaborative, professional, meticulous and a pleasure to work with. We have since asked for special birthday cakes and, again, still utterly impressed.
