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.

Julie joined Chitty's Cakes in 2014, having been a student here herself the previous year. Julie is a mum and has years of experience in traditional home baking. Her enthusiasm for baking is infectious and her addiction to all thing cake decorating related is an inspiration to the team. As well as decorating cakes and cupcakes here at Chitty's, Julie also teaches some of our popular courses (having devised them herself): 'Flower Power', 'Vintage Cupcake Decorating' and 'Piped Rose Buttercream Decorating' as well as hosting many of our hen party groups for cupcake decorating sessions at weekends and managing the day-to-day running of the baking studio, overseeing the staff and operations on the baking side of the business.
