A Leighton Buzzard cake company that opened in 2006 has been named as one of the top 100 small businesses by Small Business Saturday UK.

La Belle Cake Company, in North Street, creates award winning bespoke wedding and celebration cakes with clients including celebrities and even royalty. They also run La Belle Academy which offers business coaching to other cake makers looking to set up, or get ahead in their business.

Owner Michelle Shulman, said: “Being selected for Small Biz 100 gives us a really fantastic opportunity to raise La Belle’s profile. We can tell more people about our cakes and our new academy – helping other small cake businesses to get ahead.

“I was absolutely delighted that we were chosen as one of this year’s Small Biz 100. I am very proud of my business and have worked incredibly hard to make it what it is today and a little bit of recognition is always nice.”

The list was created by Small Business Saturday UK, a non-political, non-commercial campaign that seeks to foster support for small businesses from within their communities, both on Saturdays and beyond.

“In the last five years the Small Biz 100 have not only received exposure on Small Business Saturday’s social media channels and in the local and national press, but also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at receptions in both Downing Street and The Treasury Drum with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Each business listed is promoted one day each leading up to Small Business Saturday on December 1 2018. The initiative started in 2010 in the US and has generated a lot of custom for small businesses; the campaign is now in its sixth year in the UK.
