About Miss Shortcakes
Miss Shortcakes is a specialist in custom cakes and retail cakes on-the-go. They are also a cafe supplier, and most recently, a doughnut specialist. The founder, Jessica, was once working long hours as a pastry chef in Sydney, and decided she needed something more realistic for the long term. She then signed up for a few night courses in Cake Decorating. One day, she got an opportunity to work as a Cake Decorator in an Italian cake shop, with much better work conditions. She decided to go for it, and she was offered the job immediately as a full-time staff! Two years after that, she landed a contract with a beach-side wedding reception venue, becoming their official wedding cake maker. That was the start of Miss Shortcakes, launched in Sydney, 2008.
All Paths Lead To Cake
Jessica has always been obsessed with the F&B industry since she was 11, always helping out her mum and aunties in the kitchen with food preparation. She dabbled briefly in the marketing and advertising industry, but she came to realise that wasn’t what she loved best. There was a time when she was going from job to job in the F&B industry, and her uncle stepped in to ask what it is she really wanted. With confidence this time, she replied, “I want to be a chef.” Her uncle owned a hotel in Seremban, and she went there to work in the pastry kitchen for experience. The Assistant Pastry Chef showed her everything, and that was that. She set off to the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in Sydney, which her uncle kindly funded under certain conditions. Upon graduation with distinction, she stayed on in Sydney for 13 years.
