Jack of all trades and official partner in crime! Jamie's job here is very important. He is the only person I entrust with delivering my cakes. He takes extra care in making sure your cakes get to you in one piece, exactly as they left the kitchen! He also comes in extremely handy for things like doing my website! He gives me his creative input and will often strike me with an idea I could only dream of coming up with! His background is in sign making and fitting so when it comes to designing leaflets and business cards his skills put my to shame! He is also a super ninja at computers. When something isn't working correctly or my website is acting up he is on the job! Another thing Jamie does is popping to the shops at ridiculous hours because I've just ran out of a vital ingredient! Of course he doesn't go unappreciated for all these things.. he gets most of the cake leftovers hehe!
I started my journey into the cake world back in 2012, i did an apprentice in a small cake shop in Chorley, Lancashire. It was here that I learnt the basics of cake decorating and discovered my passion. I had previously been to college and received a Diploma in 3D and fine art which became extremely useful whilst decorating cakes. In 2014 it was time for me to leave the cake shop and venture out on my own, i had been practicing at home with all my spare time on improving my skills. Soon family and fiends approached me about making them cakes. This is where Tillys Cakes began. I am very passionate about making cakes the customer can be proud of. I bake everything from scratch using all local and natural ingredients (no cake mixes or scary preservatives here!) Every customer is unique..some come to me and know exactly what they want and others have no idea! This is when i do a few doodles for the client to look at! (these can be sent by email or Facebook) So if you have no idea what you want, don't worry! We can work it out together :)
