2015: Homemade

After 15 years in Kent's professional kitchens it was time for a change. So, with the support of his family, Aaron (and his beard) launched a bakery from his tiny home kitchen.

It quickly amassed a loyal following of cake-lovers who appreciated the quality, flavours and irresistible nature of his bakes.

Helping Hands

Those early days were exciting but lots of hard work, juggling orders and raising young children.

Thankfully family and friends were willing to lend a hand with the washing up!

2018: The Shed

The business grew and the home kitchen became too small. So, 'the shed' was built - a compact professional kitchen at the end of Aaron's garden, big enough to keep up with orders and give space to develop new recipes.

2020: Lockdown

When the UK went into National Lockdown in March 2020, Beardy Baker lost 90% of its wholesale trade overnight.

The future was uncertain, but thanks to the support of our customers the business adapted to become a privileged conduit between loved ones, delivering cake, at a safe distance, to doorsteps.

2021: Award-Winning

In 2021 we were thrilled to be named "Kent Bakery of the Year" - thanks to the recommendation and votes of our loyal customers.

The Unit

We are now at home in our 1400 sq ft bakery located in South Canterbury, enjoying baking for you with the help of our hard-working team.

Absolutely amazing cakes. Will use this company every time now. Quick and friendly delivery. Easy to use website. Great company.


Great cakes and amazing service. I'd thoroughly recommend Aaron and his team.


Super cake for my wife's birthday, delicious, lovingly decorated and enjoyed by all the family. Will 100% be using Aaron and his team again for all our Cake Needs! and believe men at times we all need cake! SO MAKE IT THE BEST!!!!


These BB guys go out of their way to offer tip-top customer service. Quite apart from that, their hyper-yummy vegan, and gluten-free brownies are the BEST!


Sent my mother-in-law all the way in Cornwall a box of the mixed brownies for Mother’s Day, she said they were delicious and I know they were because I’d been blown away by them a few weeks earlier! Great brownies, great customer service too!


An excellent company with excellent service and products. I recommend to everyone, and all have been very pleased.
