We are Rachel and Janet, a mum and daughter team, and the founders of Bowl & Whisk.
Back in 2017, we decided to turn our passion for baking into a business, starting with our ‘Brownies by post’ idea! We wanted to provide a service which could brighten up someones day, in the form of homemade brownies and traybake gifts, delivered direct to your door, beautifully gift wrapped and containing your own personalised hand written message. Here at Bowl & Whisk, we think everything can be celebrated with cake! Whether it be a thank you gift, a birthday present, or a tasty treat for yourself or to share with friends, our scrumptious bakes are the perfect choice!
Bowl & Whisk is based from our fully approved and insured home kitchens in Macclesfield and Knutsford in Cheshire. We make sure that only the finest ingredients are used when making our delicious cakes to ensure the highest quality and they are all handmade by us.
As the business has grown, we have been asked to create beautiful celebration cakes for our customers, corporate gifts for local businesses, afternoon teas for special occasions, dessert tables for events, and savoury buffets for parties, events and business lunches. We also attend farmers markets and festivals, and supply our homemade cakes into local cafes and farm shops.
We love all things foodie, from growing, cooking, baking and eating, especially eating!
Rachel’s career started in the food industry, working in both Food Safety & Technical roles, as well as New Product Development.
New product development involved creating and developing new and exciting products for the major supermarkets, as a result she is always keeping an eye out (and a tastebud!) on new trends, ingredients and flavour combinations. Rachel has also gained a distinction Certificate in Cookery at Leiths Cookery School in London, and has a passion for cooking.
Janet, a keen gardener and cook, enjoys transforming her seasonal homegrown garden produce into delicious meals, pickles, and preserves!
They both love baking, which is not surprising, as it is in their genes. Auntie Ann’s bakery in Lancashire, was legendary in family history, and her tasty recipes have been passed down through the generations and are still being enjoyed today.
As a family of dairy farmers, we understand the importance, commitment and effort that goes into producing delicious wholesome food. We take pride in the quality and taste of our cakes and bakes and always use the finest ingredients, and buy local where we can.
If there is anything that we can do to help you, please get in touch as we would love to discuss it with you.
We hope you enjoy looking around our website and shop,
Rachel & Janet
