A REDWICK woman who set up her own home delivery bakery service at the start of the year will attend her first food festival in Caldicot this month.

Jessica Cox, 26, decided to set up Baked on Green Street in January after she completed a year and a half long apprenticeship at the Cocorico patisserie in Cardiff. and started off baking bread.

She said: “I have always been one of those people who wanted to run their own business. It is all a bit of a way to get fresh bread [from Redwick]. Because I am doing delivery that is more appealing, to have it to your front door. Everything’s gone a bit crazy.”

Her parents Deb and Rob Cox have supported the venture and have themselves made deliveries around Newport and Monmouthshire.

Ms Cox said: “We have converted half the garage so I am working from there. I am doing a lot [of business] through Facebook.”

One of her latest innovations is Doughnut Wednesdays. She started baking 130 of them but has had to increase that to 230 – but is still struggling to keep up with ever increasing demand.

She will be at the Monmouthshire Food Festival, which will be held at Caldicot Castle on May 30 and 31, and also sells in markets in Chepstow, Caldicot and Newport.

She added: “It will be my first food festival so I’m really excited about it.”
