God Save the King. The BakeKing.

One of the breakout stars of the latest series of Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers and social media darling, Ben Cullen – The BakeKing – is quickly becoming a favourite with cakers and caking fans alike.

After studying Art and Graphic design at Chester University, Ben dabbled with graphic design, before entering into a tattoing apprenticeship, but it wasn’t until he was shown an example of a decorated cake by a customer, whilst tattooing in 2014, that Ben was inspired to create his first novelty cake – for his dad’s birthday. In time honoured tradition, friends and family started to ask him to contribute his sculpted wares for their birthdays and eventually The BakeKing was born.
