"No fancy names and no trendy claims, just good honest cake like Grandma used to make"

It’s 20 years now since Julia was persuaded that the cakes she made for her growing family were good enough to be sold commercially.

From very tentative beginnings, Julia’s has now grown into a brand name known across the whole of England for “no nonsense, value for money cakes".

We still use the original recipes from Julia’s kitchen, made in a much bigger mixer of course, so the cakes are made using traditional ingredients no pre-mixes, stabilizers, emulsifiers or any of the other nasty things found in food these days. Our aim is to make a “homemade handmade cake” in large numbers, which means our cakes are a little different to the vast majority of “manufactured” cakes out there.

In fact our cakes are just like Grandma used to make, meaning you can have a “homemade cake” without all the effort home gambling banking options entails. To ensure the highest standards are maintained Julia has now passed the daily supervision of cake production over to her daughter Cheryl, to make sure the family involvement will continue for many years to come.
