About Us- Jenny's Cakes is a Multi Award-Winning Artisan Wedding Cake Bakery
Jenny’s Cakes is an artisan wedding cake bakery, formed in 1986- we are now based in Annan close to Gretna Green.
(We were formerly based in Crossford, in Lanarkshire, and we decided to relocate and restructure our business in May 2021 to focus on weddings in and around Gretna Green).
We are proud to be winners of many Scottish Wedding Industry Awards.
We are a professional husband and wife business, totally dedicated to designing, baking and decorating unique and delicious wedding cakes.
We typically make only Three or Four wedding cakes each week, to make sure that we have time to make each cake with love and dedication.
Started in 1986 by Jenny Breen, Jenny’s Cakes recently celebrated an impressive Thirty-Five Years of professional wedding cake making, and we are still going strong in 2021!
(Due to demand, we now concentrate exclusively on wedding cakes, and regret that we are not able to provide birthday or celebration cakes.)1

Recent Testimonial and Photo from happy clients.
“Tom & Jenny,
We just wanted to again write to thank you both for the amazing wedding cake. The cake was truly stunning.
It really was perfect and was exactly what we had imagined, if not even better!
It tasted superb as well, and lots of our guests have made lovely comments about it.
We really do appreciate you taking such good care of us. With best wishes, John & Rebecca

At Jenny’s Cakes, we take tremendous pride in the work of the bakery, and regard each cake as a specially created unique design– we place strict limits on the number of commissions each week, typically three or a maximum of four wedding cakes each week, to make sure that each cake receives the utmost care and attention. Our goal is to bring a big smile to each couple when they see the finished cake at their wedding reception.
