A young baker who runs a cake business near Swindon has revealed she made George Clooney's birthday cake.

Holly Tait, 22, was stunned when the famous actor's PA got in touch to order the sponge cake for his 61st do.

According to Holly, she was told to just go with her own creativity for the cake design - and even received a picture the next day saying it was "delicious".

The 22-year-old, who runs Project Cakery near Cirencester, was first given the mysterious order in May 2022 for three large cakes - enough to feed 200 people.

But the young baker was told at the time that she had to keep the order a secret, and has only now revealed her famous customer after two years.

"I got a note from George's PA - it was very subtle - which said they were filming in the area and it was their director's birthday, it just needs to say 'Happy Birthday George' and should follow the theme of water and boating,” Holly explained.

"It was short notice and a lot of pressure because I already had three weddings that weekend.

“I shouldn't really have said yes and I didn't even know it was for the actual George Clooney - but I worked extra hard to make it happen."

Actor George Clooney was in the UK at the time the order was placed, directing The Boys in the Boat which is based on the true story of the US rowing team that won gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

But because Holly's design featured a special emblem from the film, she has been unable to reveal her work until now - two years later.

The film The Boys in the Boat is set to come out in cinemas this Monday, on January 15.

"I was told not to say anything until the movie came out,” said Holly.

"From my point of view, it was just another cake order - but it was picked up in a private taxi!

"It was a Victoria sponge, nothing fancy just a crowd pleaser,” she added modestly.

The young entrepreneur has been running her business, which specialises in ‘bespoke, stunning wedding & celebration cakes with gluten-free and vegan options’ since the age of 18.

Holly, who especially designs every order to suit the needs of her customers, says that for George’s birthday, she made three 10-inch Victoria sponge cakes which were enough to feed 200 people on set.
