Five minutes with: Konditor & Cook’s Rebecca Wheaton
If you work locally to Spitalfields, we’re sure many of you are no stranger to Konditor & Cook and their delicious baked goods. Whether it be lunchtime brownies with your work bestie or a personalised cake for an office birthday… Konditor & Cook is always there with the tasty treats to make your day that little bit more joyful.
We sat down with Rebecca Wheaton, their newly appointed Corporate Cake Consultant (tasked with Spreading Joy Through Cake across London’s workforce) to get her thoughts on the importance of cake…
Tell us about Konditor & Cook’s motto: “Spread Joy Through Cake” and the importance of this statement…
What may be perceived as small “acts of kindness” by employers can bring a lot of joy to their workplace. Everybody loves to be treated to cake! We believe in celebrating staff in the work environment. Many of our clients treat their teams to our personalised cakes for their birthdays, work anniversaries and other key events. We are also seeing a growth in coffee and cake mornings where staff can relax, bond and catch up on the week’s events. As we all know, happiness and ‘Joy’ is generated by the sharing of food and conversation; this is as important at work as it is at home.
What do you love most about Konditor & Cook?
The fabulous people……. and of course, the delicious cake! They are a brilliant team who practise what they preach. Coffee, cake and a ‘catch up’ is an important part of our work week and leads to happy staff and a happy company!
What separates Konditor & Cook from its competitors?
Quality and taste. We use the finest ingredients and the flavours are unbeatable. I have had the privilege of chatting in our shops with many lovely clients who have been with us since the beginning (25 years) and would not dream of going anywhere else. It always makes me so pleased to hear this!
Spitalfields is a hub of hundreds of offices and local businesses, tell us about the services Konditor & Cook offer and why cake shouldn’t just be for birthdays…
We are on the doorsteps of a thriving business community and our Corporate service is designed to make life easier for the busy companies around us. We are fortunate that so many offices around us also want to bring ‘Joy’ to their workplace through our cake. Simply open a corporate account with us, send us a list of your requirements for the coming year and we can support your needs by supplying cake and treats for all your events. We can deliver our delicious product for your office coffee mornings, board and breakfast meetings. We offer a bespoke service where we can design branded cakes for launches and business events as well as personalised cakes for staff milestones. Lastly, we can send out beautiful gifts on your behalf to your valued clients. So much more than just Birthday cake!
Which famous person (dead or alive) would you love to chat to over a slice of cake?
Billy Connelly – he makes me laugh so much as well as being really eloquent. A great combination!
If you could only eat one type of cake for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tough one – can I pick two? Lemon and elderflower with a glass of prosecco, followed by Noisette with an espresso!
