About Me

What Jessica Baked Next is a food blog created by Jessica Creed. She is a 20-year-old professionally trained chef and baking enthusiast.

Jess is a UK blogger based in Eastern England, who has loved food and cooking ever since she was young. She started whatjessicabakednext.com as a hobby and somewhere to document and share her favourite recipes. With the help of her blog, she has gone on to have her work featured in BBC Good Food magazine and website and has worked with prestigious companies including Fortnum & Mason, Joseph Joseph and Laura Ashley.

As a well as being a foodie she loves travelling and photography, often combining the two. She has travelled to countries across Europe and most recently visiting New York City and America for the first time. She hopes to travel further afield pursuing a career in the food industry. Her favourite cuisines include Greek, Italian, Spanish and British classics she has grown up enjoying. Her last meal on earth would be her mum’s roast dinner or beef stifado followed by a slice of chocolate fudge cake or cheesecake.

Jess photographs all the bakes featured on this blog herself. All the recipes featured have been tested out to make sure they are fail-proof with everything from quick and easy pasta dishes to cakes and bakes perfect for any occasion. She dreams of writing her own cookery book one day and turning her food blogging into a career.

Enjoy reading the blog, take a look at all the recipes and see what you’d like to bake next!

  1. I’m a fan already. Great blog. Not sure if you already started your culinary degree, but hope it fun and rewarding. You show some amazing baking skills! I have yet to browse through your savory recipes which I’m sure are also amazing!

  2. Hi Jess, thanks for visiting my blog. How great that you are following your passion and are training to become a professional chef. I’m impressed by what you are already cooking and baking at your age!

  3. Stumbled upon your blog in the reader. From what I see thus far, beautiful recipes and amazing photographs – you can never take too many photos. 🙂

  4. Sweet Jessica, thanks for stopping by my blog I have a crazy sweet tooth as well, and do quite a lot of baking because somehow I have convinced myself it is healthier if I do it at home…though it is really because I get to taste everything as I am in the process of preparing!
    I love your blog and your passion, reminds of myself as a teenager spending an unhealthy number of weekends with my KitchenAid experimenting with recipes, I wish you the best of luck and look forward to following your sweet adventures. 🙂

  5. Hi Jessica, found you through Angie’s Fiesta Fridays. Lovely blog and very out-of-the-box ideas! I have a passion for baking and would love to learn more. Looking forward to your posts…

  6. You have a really lovely blog Jess. I am continuously amazed by teenagers who manage blogs, I don’t think I even knew what one was when I was in high school! Thanks for visiting my site so that I could find you. I’ll look forward to more of your cooking adventures. 🙂

  7. Hi Jessica
    I just wanted you to know, that I just nominated you for the Liebster Award because you are one of my favourite bloggers!
    I really hope you’ll participate, but if you haven’t got the time or something like that it’s totally ok if you don’t. 🙂
    Love, Josefine

  8. Hi, Jess! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve been browsing yours and love every bit of it! Scrumptious recipes, beautiful pictures and a lovely way of expressing your passion!

  9. Hello Jessica! I’ve been reading your wonderful blog for a while now via Instagram and LOVE your recipes, they all look utterly beautiful and delicious. I’ve just read your about me and that you are training to become a professional chef, which sounds like an absolute dream. Would you mind sharing what course it is that you’re doing? I’m just in my final year of university doing a natural sciences degree, but once that’s over my real dream is to pursue cooking and train properly. But I have no idea how to go about it, all the culinary schools I’ve found dotted around the UK are SO expensive for just 4-6 week courses. And why would a kitchen hire someone with zilch experience?! I’m a bit flummoxed, if you could share any advice I would be SO grateful! Rosie x

    • Hi Rosie! Thanks for the lovely comment!

      Glad you enjoy my recipes. That makes me really happy!

      I’m currently on a professional chef’s diploma at my local college in Essex, the course is vocational and I train in both the cooking side of the industry and as a waitress. Really great fun! The course is free for anyone up to 19. Send me your email if you’d like anymore specific details.

      • Thank you so much Jess for writing back to me so quickly, it’s so nice of you to take the time! Your course sounds absolutely amazing, exactly what I’d love to do. I’m 21 at the moment so will be 23 by the time I graduate (oh my god, how old does that sound) so hopefully I can find a college similar to yours who takes graduates?! I can hope!

        P.S. I’m going to bake your churros recipe tonight to bring into work tomorrow, but roll them in cinnamon sugar instead of the chocolate sauce as I wouldn’t be able to haul that into work with me and keep it warm. Can’t wait and hope mine turn out as perfect as yours! I always thought you needed a deep fat fryer to make homemade churros – so glad I was wrong!
