About Eric

Eric Lanlard, Master Pâtissier, is according to Vanity Fair magazine, one of the best pâtissiers in the world.

Having trained in France to great acclaim, Eric moved to London aged 22 to work for Albert and Michel Roux becoming Head Pastry Chef within two years. In 1995 Eric established his own wholesale patisserie, leading to the opening of Cake Boy, a destination café, cake emporium and cookery school based in South West London. 

Eric’s skills and talent have turned him into a ‘much in demand’ global baking ambassador and he creates bespoke afternoon tea, sweet treats and experiences for the award winning P&O Cruises , Virgin Atlantic Airways and Marriott International  .
