I have a flickr site which I update with pictures of most of my cakes if you are stuck for ideas.

About Me

In 1988 I started to work at a local private boarding school in the catering department and have worked there ever since. My interest in cakes started when I returned back to work from maternity leave following the birth of my daughter Jessica in 1993.

 

My role included making the cakes for the childrens breaks, sports and speech days, match teas and just about any other occasion when someone could ask for a cake.

 

My love of cakes had begun.

 

 

 

The Cake That Started It..

Over the years many people have told me that I should start my own business, it wasn't until last summer that my mind was made up.

 

I was over in Cyprus on holiday and visiting family when my neice Kerry asked if I could make her 18th birthay cake. It was difficult sourcing the utensils and some of the ingredients for the cake - the icing came in through as hand luggage.

 

It was so hot that the fondant icing kept melting and falling off the cake, numerous trips to a large fridge - many people would have given up. It took most of the day to make, but I did it and enjoyed every minute. As soon as I got home I started Jacky's Cakes.

A reminder that all cakes are made to order with locally sourced ingredients and normally require at least one weeks notice
