About me



I’m Jenny – welcome to The Penguin Kitchen!

I have always loved getting creative in the kitchen – in the beginning that was mostly cooking, much to the delight of my mum, who doesn’t enjoy cooking as much. But over the last 5 years or so I have been getting more and more into baking and cake decorating. I love the whole process of making a cake, from chosing the recipe and the decoration, through to baking the cakes and then finally decorating. There’s so much room for experimenting and creativity!

Originally from Germany, I now live in the UK and have combined both German and British baking into my own unique style. After getting questions from friends and family, asking for recipes, tips or techniques I thought I would set up this blog to share my knowledge and my journey with people just as baking-obsessed as me.

If you’re wondering where the name Penguin Kitchen came from: when my husband and I first got together, somehow penguins became our thing. By now I have a whole collection of penguin cuddly toys, ornaments and key rings. So when I was looking for a name for this blog, this seemed the obvious choice to me!

If you have any questions about recipes or any suggestions of things you would like me to make, just pop over to my contact page and fill out the form there.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun baking!
