Food: Inside Cambridgeshire's Bakery of the Year

With signature bakes including gourmet marshmallows, hand-tempered chocolate and postbox brownies, Bitesize Bakehouse only launched last year but already has an impressive reputation - it was recently crowned Cambridgeshire’s Bakery of the Year.

Since March, founder Jade Boswell has been sending out postal sweet treats from her South Cambs kitchen, both as much needed pick-me-ups and thinking-of-you gifts. “Lockdown saw us pivot straight into a primarily postal service, with the odd local doorstep delivery. Cue mountains of postal brownies and birthday chocolates leaving HQ. . .”

Jade also makes celebration and wedding cakes, supplies ‘grazing tables’ for events and, as lockdown starts to lift, will soon be stocking select local farm shops and cafes.

With “years of baking experience in the tank and some trusty signature bakes”, she started Bitesize Bakehouse while on maternity leave after having her first child. Cutting the ribbon on the business at Eat Cambridge 2019, she bakes everything fresh to order and uses the best ingredients she can source, organic and local sourced wherever possible.

The brand is eco-conscious too: “All our packaging is either recyclable, compostable or reusable,” says Jade, “no single use plastics here!”

With the win at this year’s Corporate Live Wire Prestige Awards, “I couldn't be more proud of what we have achieved so far,” she adds.
