Who are the people behind Regency Cakes?
Rachel started her career over 30 years ago in a traditional hand craft bakery in North London. During a 3-year apprenticeship she attended Hendon College and achieved City and Guilds qualifications in both Bakery & Confectionery and Cake Design & Decoration. She then worked in a number of bakeries around the country gaining a wealth of experience. She never lost her passion for making cakes and loving the fact that they made birthdays and occasions extra special. From the age of 16 she always had a dream to have her own cake shop. When she met Graham, he encouraged her to make her dream a reality.
Graham’s work history is a little different. He started as a mechanic for the Lancaster Motor Group but soon worked his way up through the ranks. He became the after sales manager at Lancasters new garage in Huntingdon. Honing his customer services skills to provide the best service for his customers. After several years he started working for himself and began his own driving school. This background gave him the skills to promote Regency Cakes and it quickly grew by personal recommendation of customers. As the business grew he also learnt the art of cake design and decoration and now has over 12 years’ experience himself.
Their passion for their work is obvious. When you talk to them they will work with you to design the cake of your dreams. Rachel can often be seen around the country sharing her skills as a British Sugarcraft Guild demonstrator. She loves passing on her knowledge and tips in cake decoration and especially the intricate art of piped royal icing.
