Viva is a phenomenal businesswoman having brought her unique Filipino style arts and cakes to the UK. She is an excellent event organiser and makes the most incredible tasting cakes. Highly recommended!
Viva is a reliable, fabulous, and great baker! She makes amazing cakes and biscuits. They range from full-sized beautifully iced ones to vegan brownies and gluten-free cookies. Viva makes a big range, many of which are gluten-free (which suit me!), and often uses fruit and interesting flavours. She always arrives with a beautiful smile and a big serving knife, so people can't resist the cakes. Viva has been very kind in supporting several events that I have run, including the #SuperheroAuction, #CheltNetworking and the Connect Business Day. I highly recommend Viva and her cakes.
Viva made a beautiful and tasty cake for a big family event - my mum's 90th birthday. Mum had specifically requested ginger flavour and Viva was able to combine it with banana and caramel to make a delicious cake which fed 18 people a couple of times. In addition, she made some lovely miniature cupcakes which guests were able to take home. Don't wait for a big occasion - enjoy one of Viva's cakes any time.
I just attended a beautiful baby shower and ate a delicious slice of cake created by Viva. Viva made a strawberry and apple sponge cake which was gluten-free and vegan. Lovingly baked and decorated with pink icing. I was surprised that a gluten-free cake could be so moist! I had to eat a second slice to make sure. Thank you Viva. Your love of baking and creating a beautiful celebration for others shines through. I am very happy to recommend you.
Hi, I’m Viva Andrada O’Flynn of Love Viva Cakes and Crafts. I make the cake of your dreams come to life for your important celebrations so you can enjoy special moments with your family and friends free from stress and worry. My kitchen has been awarded a 5 food hygiene rating (the highest rating possible for food hygiene and food standards). Here I’d like to share my story with you.
I’m originally from the Philippines. There I was an entrepreneur, artist, journalist, event organizer, and a trained chef. I went to London in 2014 to further my studies as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu. I attended a cooking class and there I met my future husband, John. After a year of us flying to visit each other and keeping in touch online, we got married in the Philippines.
I’ve left the life I’ve known, family, friends, and moved here to the UK to be with my husband, John. Since then I’ve used my skills and experience in Gloucestershire and have been Entrepreneurs Champion of Create on the Square and Coffee Shop Manager of the Friendship Café among others. I’ve been living here in the UK for five years now.
On the subject of baking. I’ve always loved baking since my grandma asked me to help her out in her kitchen when I was 5 years old. The wafting aroma of freshly baked homemade goods transports me back to my childhood years and I’m filled with love. Whenever I bake, I listen to love songs so my secret recipe which isn’t so secret anymore is love.
Cake is a symbol of joy, celebration, belonging, friendship and love. You eat cake to enjoy life. Did you know that cakes also have healthful benefits? Cakes are made by mixing flour, eggs, and sugar together and they’re excellent sources of carbohydrates, thus cake provides you energy. So the next time you’re having a special occasion, do add cake to your menu and indulge. I can help you with your cake needs. I make vegan, gluten-free cakes as well. I also make handmade gifts that you could share with the people you love.
I look forward to creating treats for your special feasts.
