About Us

At Ella’s Barn we are passionate about cakes and sugarcraft.

Our story

Over 30 years ago in a stone barn deep in the countryside in County Tyrone, Ella’s Barn was born from the deep passion that Ella has for baking and decorating very special celebration cakes with her skills as a Home Economics teacher.

Ella began making and decorating cakes for family and friends from she was very young. Her own wedding cake, in 1967, was her 100th cake! Her friends often asking ‘show me, show me, I want to learn too!’, so when her husband Joe rebuilt a stone barn on the family farm in the early 1980’s, Ella quickly moved in a table and her cake equipment before Joe could use it as the garage it was intended.

People came from all over Ireland to watch, learn and try out all the skills and techniques of creating sugar masterpieces. Things quickly grew and what was at first the hobby of a very busy mum of 6 children, quickly became a home-grown business offering a large range of classes, demonstrations, catering and of course most importantly the friendships built on the shared passion for delicious cakes and delightful sugar decorations.

Throughout its growth, Ella’s Barn offered an ever-expanding range of equipment, cutters, veiners, stencils, tins, boards, icing and of course dusting powders and ribbons in every colour under the rainbow! We have loved seeing this area evolve and change with different fashions, styles, techniques, materials and equipment types over the years.

Ella has now retired from teaching and demonstrating and we no longer offer a traditional ‘physical’ shop at the Barn, however now through ellasbarn.com we are able to continue to offer customers, both old and new, a large range of our most popular cake decorating and sugarcraft products at very competitive prices, delivered directly to you.
