Suzanne Brady – Founder of Cove Cake Design


Suzanne Brady from Cove Cake Design

Cove Cake Design was founded in 2013 by Suzanne Brady.  A former scientist, with a PhD in Biochemistry followed by a career working for Cancer Research UK, Suzanne discovered a natural love of baking after becoming a full-time mother in 2008. With a passion for flavours and ingredients and exuding a real flair for contemporary cake design, she was eager to turn her talent into a viable home business. A keen student, she completed a Professional Masters Certificate in Cake Decorating, Royal Icing and Sugar Flower Techniques at Squires International School and a PME Knightsbridge Diploma in Sugar Flowers. With an eye for perfection Suzanne subsequently honed her skills with online and self-taught techniques. And so in 2013 Cove Cake Design, a nod to the stunning Sandycove area of Dublin where Suzanne and her family call home, began its baking journey.

From the outset Suzanne’s ethos has been to work closely with each client, drawing on a wide source of inspiration to create a bespoke cake unique to each occasion. With a delectable menu reflecting the quality of ingredients sourced and the design precision with which Suzanne decorates each cake it is unsurprising that Cove Cake Design has flourished into a thriving home business whose cakes have been recognised and featured in numerous wedding magazines and blogs from around the world.

The unique and interesting cake flavour combinations which have helped build Cove Cake Design’s reputation for delicious cakes, has also led Suzanne into the world of recipe writing, being a regular recipe contributor to online food magazine, which was voted ‘Best Digital Online Magazine’ in the world in 2016.
