Jenny's Cakes was started in 1986. The Bakery was constructed for Jenny in 1986 from the ruins of the traditional blacksmith's shop in the beautiful village of Crossford in Clydesdale.
Working from this architect-designed professional bakery, Jenny's Cakes has grown over the years into one of Scotland's leading Wedding Cake Bakeries.
(It's worth stating that our business is a professional working bakery, and NOT a factory, a shop or a domestic kitchen.)
Jenny has over THIRTY years of training and experience, including four years full-time study at Birmingham College of Food and Domestic Arts. Jenny's Qualifications include :-
Basic and Advanced City & Guilds Certificates in Breadmaking and Flour Confectionery.
National Bakery Diploma.
College Associateship in Food Technology.
Diploma & Certificate of the Institute of Public Health and Hygiene.
Jenny's previous experience includes engagements as
Test Baker with Fuller Kunzles (Birmingham)
Raw Materials Testing with Chief Chemist at Fuller Kunzles
Confectioner and Baker with Cadena Cakes (Bristol),
and Owner of Jenny's Patisserie, Crossford.
Jenny was joined by Husband Tom in 1999, and by Tom's Daughter Lee-Anne in 2009. Woody is the latest member of the Team. We are all enthusiastic and passionate about achieving the highest possible levels of quality and creativity.
As a small family business, our philosophy is to give time to each client, so that each wedding cake is designed 'Just for You'. We encourage clients to arrange a 'Tea and Tasters' consultation at the bakery, to taste some of our delicious cake flavours, and design their own cake (with the benefit of our experience and knowledge gained over 28 plus years.)
We limit our workload to ensure that we make each cake of the very highest quality. Jenny and Tom, the owners of Jenny's Cakes, are involved with all aspects of the bakery, from initial discussions right through to delivering and setting up your wedding cake on the big day. We have a great passion for our business, and we love to get to know each client and in that way make the experience of choosing a wedding cake one of the most fun and enjoyable parts of planning your wedding.
We also make a range of cakes for childens' birthdays and christenings and all sorts of family celebrations.
We hope you will find something of interest in this website and we look forward to discussing your celebration with you soon.
With best wishes, from Tom and Jenny Breen, on behalf of Jenny's Cakes.
