Cake and Custard, isn’t that just a match made in dessert heaven? Well that’s exactly what we have as the newest shop to open up here at the Custard Factory is the absolutely fabulous Chitty’s Cakes.
Producing a range of incredibly delectable cakes, Chitty’s have actually been part of the Custard Factory community for six years, creating bespoke celebration cakes to order as well as running terrific baking and cake-decorating classes from their studio office.
Now, the company have moved into their beautiful new shop (although don’t worry, the classes will continue in their studio) and founder Rebecca Chitty is buoyant at the prospect of selling her wonderful cakes direct to the passing public.
Rebecca told the Birmingham Mail, “I’ve been selling bespoke cakes and have a loyal customer base but it feels like a dream come true to now have my own shop front, where anyone can come in for cake.”
“And especially in such an exciting creative area like Digbeth, there is so much going on here.”
The truth is, Chitty’s Cake Shop is much more than just a ‘cake shop’. Rebecca and her team have created a serene oasis upstairs in the store, in which you can savour each mouthful of your yummy Nutella Cupcake or slice of Banoffee Pie with a freshly-brewed cup of Quarterhorse Coffee.
If eating cake is all about comfort and flavour, then there’s really no better place than Chitty’s.
After a wonderful launch day full of games, quizzes and lots of sweet treats of course, Rebecca is now settling into the full-time business of the shop. Alongside the range of cake and coffee, the store also stocks cake-decorating supplies for any amateur bakers out there, plus the popular and informative classes will continue to run.
