Gareth Blake Connolly

I grew up in our family-run Connolly Catering business in Navan, and now have over 15 years’ experience in the food service industry.

My love for baking began at a very young age. I spent many of my childhood days baking with my granny, and could proudly make an apple tart on my own by the time I was 7.

I am a fully-qualified Chef and Pastry Chef, with distinctions at both levels.

My passion for baking can be seen in every cake I produce. My attention to detail is second to none, and I treat every cake as if it’s my own.

My dreams became a reality in 2015 when I set up GBC Cakes. Every dream has a reality you just have to wait for it to blossom into something fabulous.

Since we opened, I am very proud to have won several major awards and accolades, including the “Brides Choice” Award in 2015, and “Mrs To Be” Awards in consecutive years.
