Our Story

Hi, I’m Elaine, and I officially launched Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes on 7th December 2019, the day my mum, Vie, would have turned 76. I started the company to turn my loss into a legacy and honour my mum, who was a generous and talented cake-maker. The cakes are based on my late mother Vie's traditional, secret recipes.

Mum’s middle name was Viola but Dad called her Vie (as in pie). She was born in 1943 in Jamaica and moved to the U.K. in the 1960s, making England her home. Sadly, in 2018, Mum passed away and I moved to Cumbria the following year. Well-known for her scrumptious cakes which were generously infused with the finest Jamaican white rum, I am now reproducing Mum’s cakes based on her traditional recipe. Hence, the birth of Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes. The utmost care has been taken to ensure that both the original and gluten-free versions of the cake are as fruity, flavoursome and fantastic as my mother’s used to be.

I’m committed to sustainability which is why my cakes are baked in a local, award-winning bakery which has achieved “green certification”. They are packaged using biodegradable, compostable, food grade bags, raffia and card.

Irini Tzortzoglou, Winner of MasterChef 2019 has endorsed my cakes.

Vie’s Jamaican Rum Cakes are delicious treats for special occasions, offering cake lovers a taste of Jamaica on your doorstep!
