More cake please! The Seed Fund 2014 announces its winner

After months of anticipation the wait is over for Cornish business Let Them Eat Cake as they celebrate receiving The Seed Fund 2014, a business boost initiative worth over £100,000

The fledgling gluten-free cake business run by Lisa Hackett from Hatt in Cornwall, was one of four other food and drink companies in the South West who were shortlisted after entering their business in a bid to be recognised as a future Pieminister, Weston’s Cider or Wyke Farms Cheese. Lisa’s business will now receive a year’s worth of brand and design consultancy valued in excess of £100,000 from four businesses who have joined together to create The Seed Fund.

When we first launched The Seed 2014 we didn’t know what kind of businesses we might encounter and we were thrilled to get such a variety from all over the South West and such a wonderful bunch of ambitious entrepreneurs.

We are really looking forward to working with Lisa and Let Them Eat Cake and her brand has already hit the media with coverage on BBC Radio Cornwall and the Western Morning News and of course a lovely feature in Crumbs magazine the Seed’s media partner.

Well done to the other shortlisted entries, More Drinks, a health drink company from Bristol, Jalopy Pizza a handmade wood fired pizza company from Dorset and Timmy’s Chillies a marmalade and jellies producer from Bath we know you have a great future ahead.
