I’m Trudy and I live in the lovely market town of Tenterden in Kent.
I can’t remember when I first started baking and cooking but my mother was always in the kitchen, rustling up lots of gorgeousness for the whole family. Hot cross buns spring to mind as a particular favourite of mine, always bringing back childhood memories.
I love ALL things homemade, especially cake! I sometimes think I should be a coffee shop critic as I seek out places that provide genuine home made cake. My family say I’m a complete nightmare when it comes to coffee shops: the cake MUST be homemade for me. There’s nothing else like it and I won’t compromise!
Did I mention I also love Christmas, crafting and hosting? It’s all about the attention to detail and personal touches for me.
I’ve made hundreds of mince pies for family, friends and charity events over the years. It was Christmas 2018 when my family suggested I start up a business creating handmade pies and this is when Trudy’s Pies was born with my signature Christmas mince pies. It’s really important to me that the pies are delicious from start to finish. I pride myself on the quality of the ingredients from the homemade mincemeat to the shortness of the pastry.
I’m really lucky to be able to combine so many of my passions within my business. It’s not really work when you’re doing the things you love, is it?
