The Bake Pod is owned and run by cake designer Hayley Causier. Hayley now lives in Cannock, Staffordshire with her family but is originally from the north east of England and has also lived overseas. Previous to opening The Bake Pod Hayley had a long term career in the banking industry and also worked for the emergency ambulance service for a period of time. However, having always been creative from a young age and taking enormous pleasure from baking for family and friends she decided to follow her dream and establish her own cake business. The idea of The Bake Pod was born!
The name was created as Hayley and her small family, including her partner and young son, refer to themselves as ‘peas in a pod’, hence the natural name for her business needed to include a reference to a pod! Once the decision was taken to launch the business, Hayley embarked on an intensive training programme with some of the leading tutors and academies within the UK. Hayley’s signature style is modern, elegant and contemporary and she is passionate about continually developing her skills so that The Bake Pod remains at the forefront of new trends.
She is committed to supporting local people and businesses and has deliberately chosen to work only with small companies located near to The Bake Pod in Cannock to help establish the brand. She is committed to quality and professionalism but also about making people feel that they are valued and this is something that is at the forefront of The Bake Pod’s culture.
