Kelly’s Cake creations winner in UK’s national parenting awards

Shrewsbury Cake decorator Kelly’s cake creations has been crowned one of  the best in the UK in the country’s leading parenting awards.

The popular Cake Maker based in Monkmoor was voted winner as the Shropshire region’s best children’s party supplier, in the national party awards from the UK’s largest parenting site Netmums.com.

Dubbed the UK’s ‘Parenting Oscars’, more than a million parents and childcarers were eligible to vote for the huge UK-wide prize.

But the cake maker, run by Shrewsbury mum Kelly Byrne, beat hundreds of rival venues from right across the area to win the prestigious award. As a winner Kelly’s cake creations will now get free advertising on the parenting site and a special certificate as well as the knowledge that they are a Netmums favourite

Kelly mum of two set up the company in April 2012 after leaving a career of 8 years as a child care practitioner. Being a mum of two young girls, the eldest of 6 children as well as 8 nieces and nephews, Kelly gets plenty of ideas and practice.

Delighted Kelly said: “This is fantastic news, behind the scenes we work hard to ensure that all cakes large or small that leave the premises are going to delight the children. Spending many late nights and early morning making sure they are perfect. The award makes all the hard work worthwhile and proves that a local business like ours can get national recognition.”

The national Netmums awards were set up to recognize the best firms in the growing children's party market, which is now worth a whopping £750 million a year in the UK. Categories included favourite Party Entertainers, Party Suppliers and Venues – with winners in each category being crowned the best in each of 12 national regions.

Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard said: “Putting on parties for little ones is very big business and the competition has been intense, but Kelly’s cake creations stood out. Parents couldn’t praise it enough so it is a worthy winner.”
