Christine & Phil Jensen are all about cake. Making it, baking it, eating it! They’re pastry chefs, award winning cake designers and sugarcraft artists, but mostly… they love seeing people discover delicious new ways to enjoy the best cake of their actual
Having established their luxury cake business in Cornwall – in 2014, they were invited to became suppliers to top hotels and party venues across London and the South West. Wedding cakes, celebration cakes, sculpted cakes, dessert tables. All the sweet things!
Their recipes are deliciously unpretentious, relying on the produce of great farms, dairies, and occasionally foraged ingredients from the landscape. They love to add a little wildness to the comforting delights of feisty curds, tangy jams, silky grown-up buttercreams and intensely flavourful sponges.
As their business and reputation for great cake grew, in late 2016 they filmed with Julie Walters for her Coastal Railway program, where they showcased their innovative use of the railways to supply London’s cake needs.
Christine & Phil are stars of all four seasons of Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers, which often focuses on their more unusual sculptural commissions. Day to day, their craftsmanship is sought out for both flavour and design flair by private and corporate
clients across the UK and internationally, with occasional kosher commissions undertaken in London.
Christine & Phil teach via their online cake school BLACK BOX CAKE, and present at food shows, festivals, cake shows and business gatherings across the UK. Even adding a deliciously thought-provoking TEDx talk on “How cake can improve your memory”.
