Jill Robertson, founder of The Cakery

Jill Robertson of The CakeryJill has loved cooking and baking ever since learning as a small girl with her mother. The family was one where afternoon tea, using pretty china, was a regular treat. 

The family roots are in Cornwall so clotted cream made a frequent appearance!   After many years of baking for family, friends and charity events, Jill decided she wanted to do more, not less, even though the children were growing up and leaving home.  So The Cakery was born, bringing the delicious recipes and traditions of a more genteel era to a wider audience.


“It was a delight for the eyes & such delicious treats to eat. Everyone loved it”
