Currently, Jen and Jay live in Dublin, Ireland with their two daughters where Jen is a superhero of sorts. She works as a surgical theatre nurse 4 days a week, providing skilled care throughout all phases of a patient’s operation. Jen works from 8am to 6pm and if she has wedding cake orders she’ll come home and automatically start making sugar flowers. Her baking normally happens at night as well. She says “I don’t know how I’m doing it, but I’m doing it. I get tired from my nursing work, but whenever I get home and sit in my little studio, it seems like a fresh start again. I am very passionate about my cakes, I get so motivated as I know I’ll be creating something very special.”
Inspiration for Jen’s gorgeous cakes comes from many places. She has a deep affection for pretty flowers and foliage. She also draws inspiration from the venue, the bridal dress, and the couples themselves. During consultations Jen’s favorite part is when the couples share their love story – how they met, what they like about each other, and how they got engaged.
Jen began using a CakeSafe to deliver her cakes to venues in September of 2016. She says “to put it simply, I should have discovered CakeSafe ages ago! I love my CakeSafe and I don’t think I’d deliver my wedding cakes any other way! The uneven roads, reckless drivers, and other undesirable elements here in the Emerald Isle make it very difficult and treacherous to deliver delicate tiered cakes. CakeSafe basically leveled the playing field for me. It’s a brilliant and life-saving invention!”.
Jen and Jay are so grateful for their successes with Cupcakes and Counting. They are thankful to their family and friends who supported them from the beginning. They also want to thank their clients in Ireland and abroad, who they now consider friends, as well as their online followers.“Because of you guys, we become more inspired to continue with our passion.”.
