Our Story

“Honestly we were just really enjoying eating the things we were making. We had a good time doing it. I guess we just kind of went from there.” Maria Ridley.

“With Maria working part time as the in house baker for Anderson & Co in Peckham and me working nights as a DJ, the earliest incarnation of the SE Cakery was Maria baking things and me taking them to Cafes. Having built up a few weekly customers, we started doing markets. We did it all ourselves from a flat before moving to our kitchen in East Dulwich and building a team. Thats how it started.” Alex Ridley.
