Meet the bride who is baking her own wedding cake!
Jen from Unique Cake Creations, in Kent, tells us her story.
“I have always been into baking, and was often found with my sister on a Sunday afternoon baking rock cakes or fairy cakes until I think our parents were fed up with them! But it wasn’t until about 5 years ago, when I really started to decorate cakes & wanted to learn more. My partner had taken up running & was training for marathons so was often out running for hours & I was looking to find something to occupy me, when my partner’s mum suggested that I joined the local sugar art club. My very first week was making a bride & I’ve been hooked ever since! I have even now started to demonstrate & run workshops at the club to show others. I spent the next few years making cakes for friends & family & have learnt so much since the very first one. I love every cake I make & always love a challenge! I always make every cake different even if its based on a previous design. Earlier this year, I decided to get my business registered & I’m now up & running part time around my day job - it’s hard work but worth it when I see the reactions that my cakes get! My partner & I have been together for 10 years & last year, we decided to get married. Now my biggest challenge is our cake! This will be my first proper wedding cake, having only done small ones before or just bride & groom toppers but I can’t wait!”
