Two Hands Bakery is an independent bakery based in Bethnal Green.  We create a wide range of baked goods, always with a focus on quality, flavour and design.  Our inspiration comes from the baking traditions of Britain and Australia - simple joys, bold flavours and not too much fuss - made with a modern touch. All of our products are created with ingredients that are as local, seasonal and sustainable as we can find, for the best taste and the least environmental impact. There are also vegan and gluten-free options available so that everyone can enjoy our bakes.

We love to create bespoke cakes for weddings, birthdays, events or corporate clients. If you have an enquiry about our range or are interested in a bespoke order please don't hesitate to get in touch, we'd love to work with you.


Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, Elle Bower Johnston grew up with the simple pleasures of summer peaches, vanilla slice after netball on Saturdays and a lemon tree in the back yard.  She first learned to bake as a way to increase the cake available in her 10-year-old world and the love of baking has followed her through the years.  After much faffing about - a degree in fashion and textiles, a stint living in Italy, many many years in the hospitality industry - she finally made the leap and dedicated herself to baking in 2014, working with e5 Bakehouse and Violet Bakery, amongst others, before starting Two Hands.
