Elaine Price is the owner of Elaine’s Afternoon Tea LLC, based in Phoenix, AZ. Her company specializes in making high quality, hand crafted English fairy cakes, biscuits (cookies), scones and Irish soda bread in a wide variety of sizes, styles and fantastic flavors, which you can pick and mix to suit your individual taste! She also offers one-of-a-kind, hand-decorated celebration boxes for special occasions!
Elaine was born in Birmingham, the largest city in England outside of London. However, she is probably more Irish than most, as her Mother, Mary was from County Kerry and her Father, Pat was from County Wexford. On trips every year to Ireland as a child, she would watch her grandmother making Irish Soda Bread, so she has a great family recipe up her sleeve!
Elaine trained as a Graphic Designer in London and worked for almost 8 years at Dorling Kindersley Books Ltd in Covent Garden, as a Designer and Project Art Editor, before going freelance for a year.
In 2001 she changed careers and became a Teacher! She taught Information and Communication Technology, Art and Design, to children aged 11-17 for over 9 years.
Elaine found both her careers in Publishing and in Teaching immensely satisfying and in fact life-changing.
She left Teaching the day before she moved to America in April 2010, to join her fiancé, John, who she married that same month!
Elaine fell in love, not only with John, but also with Phoenix, Arizona and the USA when she visited her brother, Colin in 2008! Elaine also has five American cousins and an Aunt in the USA.
In creating her bakery business, (an idea she’d had for quite a while) Elaine has brought together all of her artistic, design and organizational skills to create, not just ‘something nice to munch on’, but an experience, not easily forgotten! Her aim is to make people sweeter!
To that end, Elaine not only bakes great-tasting and eye-catching goodies, but also presents her delightful desserts in unique and colorful boxes and packaging, to suit the occasion. She is motivated by the positive feedback she receives. Her satisfaction comes from the smiles she sees on her customer’s faces!
