I’m Jen Thomas, owner & creator of Cakey Lulu’s
I am married to Nathan, and have two beautiful daughters - Lexi and Maia.
I’ve always loved baking and making delicious treats, even from a very early age with my mum when we would bake brownies together. I also really enjoyed art and found I had a knack for still-life sketching, although I never really saw myself as a particularly ‘creative’ person. As I grew up I pursued a very different path, completing a law degree and then joining the Police Force.
After 7 years as a Constable, I had my second daughter and decided to take a career break.
It was in having children that I rediscovered my love for baking and decorating beautiful cakes (starting off with their birthday cakes of course). I discovered that I had natural hidden talent for decorating cakes, following in the footsteps of my wonderful Grandmother who herself was a wedding cake designer specialising in beautiful, ornate piping details and intricate sugar flowers!
My life-long love of all things “wedding” steered me toward my true passion:
Designing and creating beautifully elegant and delicious wedding cakes,
with pretty sugar flowers and hand painted details, for couples to share with their guests on their most special day!
After spending many hours taste-testing new recipes (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!), I have come up with some truly delicious and indulgent flavour combinations to tease your taste buds.
I love to meet couples and find out about their individual styles.
Of course some couples already know exactly what what sort of wedding cake they want, but I am always excited to come up with a beautiful design for those who have no idea what they want! The Cakey Lulu’s service is truly bespoke, and every detail is planned out to ensure a perfect cake for your special day.
Feel free to take a look at some of my previous work, and get in touch - I’d love to hear about your ideas!
