About Us

My name is Jennie and I run Curtis & Co Cakes from a small home style bakery in rural Westend - South Gloucestershire.  I was taught to bake by my dear little mum - who baked everything - our airing cupboard was always full of bread - not blankets and our lunch boxes and their often sweet contents were the envy of many at school.  My company name is in memory of her and the wonderful skills and recipes she has left me with.

I have always been artistic and studied Art and Design before venturing into a degree in Fashion Design.  I worked in Camden and London’s Mayfair for a number of years for Fashion and Jewellery Design Companies before eventually relocating back to the countryside with an eye for experimenting with colour, shapes, textures and detail.

I finally put my love of baking and my artistic skills together when I started to make beautifully finished iced cakes for my girlfriends as many of us started to get married back in 2007.  Around the same time I met my lovely and very supportive husband - who together with friends who had loved their cakes encouraged me and gave me the confidence to do more and more.

After years of hard work, a lot of learning and juggling old careers with new I managed to make Curtis & Co Cakes my full time career in 2011 from my tiny home kitchen and I have never looked back.  A lot has happened in the years since then and Curtis & Co Cakes went on to win the "Best Wedding Cake Designer - South West Region" in The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards.  I entered The Awards again this year - and won again for The South West -  Just as I thought things couldn't possibly get any better I was absolutely thrilled to be announced as the National Winner for The Best Wedding Cake Designer 2014 on 15th February at The Wedding Industry Awards at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London.

Business has never been better and I have recently moved into a converted barn kitchen and showroom in rural Westend - South Gloucestershire.  It's the perfect place to come and try some cake and have a really good chat about your special day.  Every day I wake up and feel so lucky to be in a position to be able to do what I really love.... bake and create beautiful wedding cakes... and I think this is reflected in my work and the finished product we have become known for.
