Jackie’s cake kitchen was born in 1987. Jackie even while still at school realised an ambition to become the best in cake baking with her homemade recipes and sugar craft at its best, it was a dream to be realised, since leaving school she always knew the career path she wanted to take and went into the bakery trade as an apprentice learning all the skills involved in making and decorating celebration cakes. After leaving the post she took it upon herself to further her creativeness by making cakes for others at little to no cost, enjoying the cake making, model making, flower making and fancy royal icing decoration and it certainly was a journey
After raising a family of four boys she decided in 1987 that she would like to start a business of her own and established Jackie’s Cake Kitchen. Using the domestic kitchen of her home. Customers enjoyed the “homemade” taste of the cakes and the bespoke designs they could have and it soon became apparent that her kitchen was bursting at the seams, to relieve the pressure she adapted her garage to a specialised kitchen especially for the cakes but this only sufficed for another couple of years, with the ever growing number of customers, “many still with her today” it was again realised that Larger premises were needed. After many weeks of searching and pestering landlords, in 1989 she managed to secure the premises in Fazeley, Tamworth where the business has gone from strength to strength, adapting over the twenty five years to new trends and ideas. We have also had to make changes to meet both this recession and the previous one.
The journey began in a small single shop but soon expanding and taking over the premises next door to include sugarcraft supplies. Over the years we can now boast a double shop which we have extended several times in order to accommodate us, our bakery and wedding lounge were added along the way so we not only provide bespoke cakes but a wide range of sugarcraft supplies, partyware and goods. Our Ebay store has also been a winner selling our products to the public.
Jackie’s Sons and staff have helped immensely over the years with their fresh ideas and hard work and Jackie would be the first to thank them all for their help and knows she could not have done it without them.
