A bit about me…

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully with a piece of cake and a cup of tea (or gin!) in front of you. If not, maybe I can help.

It all started when I was 8 years old. I’d make the family’s favourite chocolate cake, carefully following my Grandma’s handwritten recipe – which I still use, but is now covered in many layers of chocolatey finger prints! I quickly became the nominated baker in charge of all family parties and birthday spreads (and I am one of seven, so that is a LOT of cake!)

Heart shaped salted caramel filled chocolates with white chocolate and dried raspberries.
Sea themed birthday 60th birthday cake.
Persian love cakes as part of a wedding dessert table. Decorated with meringues, figs, pistachios and rose petals, this caramel cake with rose buttercream is a visual delight.

I am devoted to flavours that evoke emotions – whether it is a memory of your mum’s gingerbread, or the feeling of delight and surprise with a hint of maple syrup in buttercream.

I would love to share my bakes with you.

A bit about the cakes…


We take pride in creating tasty bakes, and to do that we only use the best ingredients. Our eggs are from our own free range hens, and we keep our food miles down by buying local or British produce where possible – although you just can’t get vanilla in this climate! Being ethical and supporting our brilliant suppliers is important to us, and we hope it is to you too.


Our kitchen contains nuts, wheat, eggs, diary and other allergen ingredients that are common in a home kitchen. Whilst we can make cakes without some of these ingredients, we cannot guarantee that there won’t be traces and our bakes will be suitable for those who suffer from allergies.  Contact us if you have any specific requirements and we will endeavour to meet your needs.

A bit about the goal…

I set up Rosemarie’s Pantry because I want to make a difference, and what better way to do that than through cake.

I grew up going to the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The islands experience difficulties with young people leaving, in part due to employment issues.

£1 from every order will go directly to supporting local youth groups, and my ambition is to eventually train and employ young people in my bakery.

I hope you will join me on this adventure.
