Rebecca Chitty - Guest Tutor/Mentor
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 (and later two, as well as - for 2 years - a small pop-up shop) in the Custard Factory. Following the sale of the company to Julie, Rebecca keeps her skills up and stays in touch through guest tutoring and mentoring the new owners.
Julie Steed - Director, Cake Decorator & Tutor
Julie enjoyed working at Chitty's so much she bought the company!
In 2019 Rebecca decided to focus her full time career in another direction so Julie decided to take up the reins after working here since 2014. 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.
