I originally ordered a cake from Jessica and was blown away by the decoration, upon cutting into the cake and tasting it I have to say that it was the best cake I had ever had, which is why I decided that I wanted to learn how to bake like her. Her generosity in sharing her talents is amazing. Jessica has introduced me to suppliers who like her use only the best of ingredients. Read more...

I was an indecisive bride! A nightmare for retailers to deal with... I had no idea what I wanted. Jess was so very patient and kind with me talking me through the design conception process and listening intently to my likes and dislikes. In the end, I relinquished all creative design responsibility to Jess and wanted a surprise! Read more...

The first time I encountered Jessica was in one of the very first cake decorating classes that I took. The truth be told, I had not taken the class based on her as a teacher at all. I am however so very thankful that I accidently fell upon her. Read more...

I have always loved to bake and had done a little bit of cake decorating but I was keen to improve my skills. I attended a basic cake decorating course run by Jess at The Essential Ingredient in Rozelle. Jess was an amazing teacher and I learnt so much on that day and I was really pleased the results I was able to produce. As a result of that first class, I have continued classes and private lessons with Jess, developing my skills in cake decorating, sugar flowers and also working with chocolate. Read more...

I have been lucky enough to have Jessica create two amazing cakes on two very important occasions in my life. My wedding cake and my 30th birthday cake. Her cakes are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. The wedding cake has to be my favourite and most special - best cake ever!!! Read more...

We were referred to Jess by a client of mine who was another "foodie" and told me that Jess was the best in the business! So I contacted Jess asking if she would make a cake for our sons 1st birthday, and what a cake it was! Oh my god is an understatement of what I was thinking when I saw our sons cake! It was beyond words, I honestly didn't think the cake would be as amazing as it was. Read more...

I first attended a Planet Cake workshop in 2011 where Jess was teaching a Chocolate course. I was immediately impressed with her presence, professionalism and knowledge. Jess took us through the ins and outs of chocolate, from the cocoa plants to conching and everything in between. Read more...
