Jane’s Promotional Video

I decided to have a short promotional video filmed for Jane Rose Cakes. I wanted to show you how I work in the kitchen and what I tend to do on a normal working day. Fiona Pitts took behind the scenes photos while producer, Charlotte Parry Jones organized everything. Leigh Hammond and Paul Hanks worked behind the camera and on lighting.  Welsh producer Ifan Dafydd will be composing the music. The video was filmed in Beaumaris on the beautiful island of Anglesey.
Here are a few ‘behind the scenes’ shots from the day. The full video will be posted soon!

Magnolia is an ancient plant, fossilised specimens have been found dating back 20 million years. There is something about this quietly strong, elegant plant that I have always admired.
