Eric Lanlard is a master patissier and owner of Cake Boy.

Eric has appeared in guest spots on a number of UK channels, but it was Channel 4 who gave him his own television series, Glamour Puds and Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard.

He was born in Brittany and grew up in a small town called Le Grande, where he trained as a pastry chef.

Albert Roux and Michel Roux recruited Eric and he then moved to the UK in 1989. He became their head pastry chef within two years before leaving to set up his own business in 1995.

Event Catering

Among Lanlard’s publicised works is a croquembouche for the wedding of Madonna and Guy Ritchie, and wedding cakes for Elizabeth Hurley and Claudia Schiffer. He also baked the cake for the Queen Mother’s 101st birthday which featured two tiara-wearing Corgis.

Eric Lanlard has baked for some of the world’s most famous celebrities, who all endorse his service. And because of his appearances on British television shows, as well as his own shows on Channel 4, he is a good choice for food brands looking to connect with a larger audience.

TV Chef

Eric Lanlard has made television appearances and guest-spots on UKTV Food, the BBC show Girls on Top and ITV’s This Morning. He has also hosted his own television shows on Channel 4 called Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard and Glamour Puds.

Eric was part of the prestigious Taste of London 10th anniversary celebrations. He cooked at the event with top chefs from around the globe, including Gary Rhodes, Michel Roux Jr, Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio.

The British Baking Awards have twice named him Continental Patissier of the Year.
