As I write this in February 2020 I am busy setting up my new Cake School and Studio in Kingshill, where I have lived since 2007 with my husband.  Although I will predominantly be making wedding cakes, I will be teaching modelling skills and cake making techniques.

 

I started making cakes in 2015 as a hobby, which rapidly grew into almost a full-time job, after I attended a “Cupcake Course” with the famous “Eric Lanlard” at the “Cake-Boy” bakery in Battersea which was given to me as a Christmas present. I love my job because it is so rewarding meeting new clients, and being part of their wedding journey. I would say my “Sugarcraft Speciality” is modelling and I love teaching my students new skills watching them develop over time. I am currently training to be a Pastry chef at Westminster College in London, training on the City and Guilds Level 2 Diploma which is very exciting. 

 

I love being part of the cake industry because I have met and made some really amazing friends over the past 5 years, I have attended many different courses (with many different tutors) from all over the world, with everyone offers on-going support and advice when needed. I was recently part of the “Sugar Witches” cake collaboration at Cake International 2019, as well as exhibiting two of my own pieces. I also took part in the on-line cake collaboration “For the Little Ones” which purely raises money for children’s charities. 

 

I have become a  “Cake Minds” teacher, so I can teach and encourage new sugarcraft modelling students, who want to grasp the basic skills of, and enable them to develop their techniques  but also be a part of a new and growing community. And for me personally I am looking forward to being a part of a new “Teaching Community” and meeting like minded colleagues.

 

I was really proud to pass my “PME Masters” in Sugarcraft, Royal 0 and Sugar flowers about 5 years ago, and equally proud to have received “two Silver Awards, two Bronze Awards and a Merit Award” in the last three years at “Cake International”

 

I sold my “Children’s Day Nursery” Business in November 2019, which I had owned for over 18 years giving me time to build my Cake School and Studio,  I have three gorgeous dogs who I adore!!! And last but by no means least, I am currently training to ride across Portugal in October 2020 (600 miles)!!! To raise funds for “Breast Cancer Care” luckily, I am a very keen “Road Bike Fanatic”
