Bom Bom Patisserie


Marta Oliveira-Child

Sport Exercise and Health Sciences (2012)

As a student, Marta Oliveira-Child dreamed of running her own patisserie business. In 2012, after years of honing and perfecting her skills, she and her husband founded Loughborough-based Bom Bom Patisserie.

The company cater for corporate events and celebrations – weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties – creating delicious cakes and individual sweetmeats almost too attractive to slice and eat.

Clients provide their specification and design ideas to Bom Bom Patisserie who then bake and spin sugar into gorgeous confectionary.

The company website is a feast for the eyes: tiered wedding and bespoke birthday cakes, “naked” cakes adorned with fresh fruit and flowers, and individual delights – cupcakes, brigadeiro and fruit dips.

The company deliver or – for those unable to wait – collection from the Loughborough-based kitchen is an option.

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing a customer's face light up when I show them their finished cake.
