Create Better Group have today announced that they are welcoming family-founded cake decorating retailer, Cake Stuff, to the group. Lanarkshire based, Cake Stuff, have over 135,000 customers worldwide and distribute cake craft supplies from their distribution warehouse in the historic village of Lesmahagow in Scotland. Cake Stuff offer a range of over 11,000 cake decorating products and over the past 15 years have firmly established themselves as experts on the cake craft scene offering a vast range of choice for customers, alongside fast, friendly and fun service.

In August 2006, owners Jean and Alan Young took their over 30 years retail experience and expanded their on-line sugar craft and tartan ribbon businesses in to new industrial units near Glasgow. The move proved such a success that the team quickly had to expand premises to accommodate the ever-growing amount of stock arriving from all over the world. Cake Stuff have since made two subsequent moves, in 2012 and then 2018, to accommodate the rising online demand for their products and to maintain their first-class service to customers.

Alan Young, Owner of Cake Stuff, commented; “I am absolutely delighted that Cake Stuff is now part of the Create Better Group. This is an amazing opportunity to grow the Cake Stuff brand and to distribute products like our award-winning Couture sugar paste to a much wider customer base, throughout the UK and across Europe. Create Better Group boasts some of the very best talent within our industry, so Cake Stuff will have the expertise and resources to source lots more exciting new products and to offer our customers a level of service that’s second to none. I’ve been at the helm for over 35 years now and am extremely proud to see the next generation take over. Cake Stuff’s future as part of the Create Better Group guarantees very exciting times ahead for us and for our customers.”

In the second half of 2021, Create Better Group, which currently employs more than 70 people, will be expanding into new offices in Colwick, Nottingham. The firm is enthusiastic about the increased market penetration that it can offer its suppliers once the team at Cake Stuff have settled in.

Daniel White, joint CEO of Create Better Group, concluded: “We have long admired the Cake Stuff business and it's great to have them as part of the group. Whilst our businesses are different and there are fantastic opportunities to learn from each other, it's also very clear we share a joint desire to innovate for our customers to help them create better.”

Operations for Cake-stuff.com will be unaffected by this move and customers will continue to receive the usual high levels of care. Trade and wholesale customers will continue to receive their trade/wholesale discount along with top service and support.
