About Us

The Piece of Cake team

Hi, I'm Tom. I'm the managing director of Piece of Cake and head rigger.

I grew up on a smallholding in rural Kent and went on to work in pubs and restaurants, offices and farms, factories and warehouses, before moving to London for 12 years to be a journalist and magazine editor.

I've now returned to the South Coast and live in Hastings, and I love my new job!

I also love to throw fun and quirky parties, such as my annual friends-and-family village fête, which is where I found my love of vintage marquees and furniture.

In my spare time, I'm taking classes to be a stand-up storyteller and will be setting up a club in the New Year. 

My favourite cake is Christmas cake.

Hello! My name is Phia (short for Sophia) and I'm the operations manager.

I got involved with Piece of Cake when my partner Tom asked me to help with the bookkeeping. A few months later I was involved with all areas of the business. I love spreadsheets, colour-coding, and being organised and creative at the same time! Weddings are my favourite type of booking as being able to help make someone’s day special makes me very happy.

​I love vintage, rustic and quirky styles and enjoy helping clients find and choose furniture and decorations to fill their marquee or venue – so if you book with us feel free to chat with me about your ideas any time. 

​My favourite cake is Red Velvet.
