About Us


The business was started by Jo nearly 6 years ago, following her passion for both baking and sugar craft, having baking beautiful cakes for friends and family for nearly 20 years.

In 2014, she was joined by talented young cake decorator and baker Rachel, and shared all aspects of creating the wedding cakes, chocolates, macarons and more.

In August 2016 Rachel took over the entirety of Joanna Rose Cakes, and continued to be one of the most successful wedding cake businesses in Yorkshire.

Every bit as
good as it looks!

All the recipes used by Joanna Rose Cakes have been developed and refined by Jo and Rachel to ensure your cake will taste every bit as good as it looks. Only the finest and purest of ingredients from specialist suppliers are used, many of which cannot be found in your local supermarket. These include premium Belgian chocolate couverture, fine fruit curd and conserves, and exquisite Madagascan vanilla pods. All our eggs are from free range chickens.

Be assured that a Joanna Rose cake will provide a beautiful centrepiece to your wedding: contemporary and stylish or elegant vintage, a Joanna Rose cake will add class and sophistication to any event.

01. Experience

Rachel’s passion began as a child, baking cakes for friends and family. She started from the bottom, gaining experience in an apprenticeship then finding her dream career with Jo, the previous owner of Joanna Rose cakes. After 2 years, she took over the business and has soared ever since.

02. Professionalism

We are a friendly yet professional business, and aim to exceed the expectations of every customer we meet. Rachel takes an interest in each and every bride, ensuring each detail is looked after.

03. Expertise

Being a perfectionist, supplying the best is the only option. If you have chosen us to be a part of your wedding, we will do everything in our power to make your day as special as possible.

04. Quality

We only ever use the highest quality ingredients in all our cakes and wedding favours. We never use packet mixes or cheaper alternatives.

Thank you so much for the absolutely fabulous cake you made for our big day. The cake looked and tasted amazing and everyone commented on the wonderful flavours. The service and quality from your company was exceptional and we cannot recommend you highly enough.
