Simply Gorgeous Cakes by Jo
**Please excuse our appearance, we are currently updating the website**
My name is Jo and I am a cake maker and decorator based in New Ash Green, North Kent, within easy reach of Gravesend, Dartford, Sevenoaks, Medway and Tonbridge.
I am fully registered with Sevenoaks Council and, at my last inspection in October 2012, I was awarded a rating of '5' (Very good) by the Environmental Health Officer.
I have a certificate in food safety and a masters certificate in cake decorating, having passed diplomas in sugar paste cake decorating, Royal icing and piping, and sugar flowers.
I offer a friendly, approachable service and fantastic cakes designed to your specifications to help make your celebration special. Novelty birthday cakes, Christmas cakes and cupcakes are a speciality.
A lot of the models on my cakes have been created as a caricature of the recipient, usually using photos as a guide.
I use good quality ingredients and free range eggs so that your cake tastes as good as it looks. and I currently offer the following types of cake:
Fruit cake, covered with marzipan before icing
Madeira, filled with jam and vanilla buttercream
Rich chocolate cake, filled with chocolate buttercream
Luscious lemon cake, filled with lemon curd and lemon buttercream
Carrot cake, filled with orange buttercream
Coffee and walnut cake, filled with coffee buttercream
Red velvet cake, filled with white chocolate buttercream
Egg, dairy or gluten free cakes are available in most flavours.
If you would like me to make a cake for you in a flavour/ combination that is not on the list above, I would be happy to help but I will require enough time to research and develop the recipe to make sure that your cake is of a standard that I am happy with.
Variations on the above and other 'free from' cakes can be made, please contact me to discuss individual requirements.
Thank you for visiting, please come in and take a look around
