Rebecca Chitty

Rebecca launched Chitty's Cake Company in 2011, following years of baking and cake decorating for fun. After a year of making bespoke cakes and cupcakes from home, the business expanded in 2012 to occupy a studio in the Custard Factory where Rebecca now runs the business and teaches a wide range of classes in both cake baking and decorating. Chitty's now occupies two studios at the Custard Factory and has a small shop unit where lots of cake decorating equipment (plus tea, coffee and cake!) can be purchased. Rebecca is a tutor, the lead cake designer and director of Chitty's Cakes Limited.
