Truly Scrummy

My name is Jen Thomson and I live in Chigwell, Essex. I have been baking, decorating and creating cakes for a year and have had a fantastic journey with some very supportive friends and family and now loyal customers.

I have always loved baking and have an arty background. In most of my jobs I always brought my creativeness into any work I could but in more advertising, corporate events etc, little did I know what path I was to take.

My adventure started after the birth of my beautiful daughter Thalia, who is truly my inspiration. I had lived in Dorset for several years due to my now husbands military work. I had moved away from friends, family and left my PA job. I soon lost my confidence.

2011 we moved back to Chigwell, Essex where I decided to move out of my comfort Zone. I enrolled in an intense masterclass diploma course in cake decoration up in Greenwich. It was my making. I went to meet people and have a little me time and build up some long lost confidence. I wasn't expecting all of that and then to fall in love with sugar craft! I immediately enrolled in a wedding masterclass diploma course, and once again enjoyed every minute.

This is where Truly Scrummy comes in to it (name from the hubby).
With the help of some loved ones I managed to get my business on its feet. Website built, cake hut built and my lovely fans found.

I now build as many one of a kind cakes as possible, enjoying every second with my client, from sketching the cake all the way to the feedback after.

All the best Jen ♥
