Award icing on cake for Jenny's
Wexford business Jenny's Cupcakes received the 'Irish Cake Designer of the Year' award at the Irish Wedding Awards held in the Crown Plaza Hotel, Dublin.
The cake company based in Wexford town and owned by couple Jennifer and James Andrew specialise in novelty cakes and cupcakes.
The pair received a call in November to say they had been nominated numerous times.
'We are over the moon to receive this award, we had hoped to win the South East region award but to win the National award as well is beyond belief,' said Jennifer.
She said the award bolsters their reputation as 'the leading wedding cake designer in the South East' and one of the best in Ireland.
The couple opened up their business to help pay bills during the height of the recession.
'We used to bake for friends and family and after being approached by so many people looking for cakes and cupcakes for birthdays we decided to set up a business,' said Jennifer.
She said the business opened in November 2010 and after four years of working from home, moved into the current premises in the Folly in May 2014.
'We spent the last six years training to get to the point we are at now,' said Jennifer.
