About Me & One Sweet Day



I originally began trading as Sweet Annalise in March 2009, before rebranding the business One Sweet Day in 2012 and have been baking delicious cakes, cookies and brownies ever since!

Initially, One Sweet Day was just a small selection of gorgeous cupcakes – developed from the fairy cake recipes I made with my Grandma and Mum as a child. I began as a part time business, alongside a full time job in retail head office and then alongside having my babies.


Since the early days the range has grown to include large chewy cookies, flapjacks and our incredibly popular brownies, cake jars and celebration cakes.

In the early years, regular customers requested birthday cakes and celebration cakes as they enjoyed the flavour of my cupcakes, so I tentatively developed my cake decorating skills in order to meet this demand.

Nowadays – with over 10 years experience under my belt and thousands of cakes, One Sweet Day’s product and service is constantly evolving and improving. Striving to be the best that we can be within a very competitive market.

In January 2018, One Sweet Day took over and absorbed the very well established Chorley town centre celebration cake business ‘Cakes by Ruth’. It has not always been easy with 2 very young children in tow, but we have come such a long way. The shop is looking better than ever, the team (my cake family) are growing in confidence all the time and we are seeing more and more regular visitors coming back again and again for our cakes and brownies – that is all we can ask and we are ever grateful for their support.

We look forward to baking for you soon, so please don’t hesitate to contact us or pop into the shop to visit us.
