Hello and welcome to Sweet & Slice Bakes. I’m Niki, a mum of two, a wife to a man I met at University and an Accountant by trade!
Sweet and Slice Bakes was an idea that came about in lockdown. At 40 weeks pregnant back in March 2020 I contracted Covid and I ended up in hospital, away from my daughter and husband not quite knowing what the outcome would be. Thankfully we were reunited as a family of four but had to quickly learn to adjust after the illness, surgery, separation to find a norm at a time when everything wasn’t normal, and we couldn’t share our joy or celebrate our relief.
That’s when the baking started. I’ve always enjoyed baking and found it a kind of therapy. I began baking more and more and sharing my bakes with neighbours and friends. After much encouragement and support from those around me I decided to take the plunge and start it as a business.
I make traybake form slices in individual portions, which offer a unique and happy alternative to traditional cake and biscuit options. I often do special limited edition flavours which is usually a result of me wanting to experiment and try new flavours and ideas!
I offer a “pick n mix” style service where you can choose from a list of current flavours – which ones you’d like and how many of each. I also do slice cakes and custom requests.
Slices can be delivered locally or posted nationwide.
“I can’t believe how delicious these treats are. The seller went out of her way to ensure I had them in time for Christmas and I will definitely be ordering more. I cannot wait to hear what people think of them. The presentation is amazing and the taste too.”

“I was delighted to receive a hand-delivered box of Christmas treats from Sweet and Slice Bakes, as my work secret santa present. They were simply but effectively packaged in a brown box with lovely Christmas twine and a cute reindeer tag. The cakes themselves were delicious and were a lovely selection – from tiffin, to lemon and white chocolate and my favourite – biscoff! Highly recommend.”

“Delicious slices of heaven and a perfect treat to arrive in the post. My favourite was the mint aero one. Definitely worth a try and it’s a nice thing to send a loved one, especially during these crazy times.”
