Do you wish you could make just a bit of time for you ?

Why be a Cake Minds Student

Why did I start Cake Minds, well these ladies are a big part of the Why, they are just a few of my long term students and people I am overjoyed to call my friends, and who I went on my first girly holiday with this year. 

They all met through sugarcrafting and have been students on my Monthly Modeller groups for many years. We have supported and cheered each other on through many of lives ups and downs, sometimes finding a friendship group with a common interest can be difficult.

Cake Minds aims to make this just that bit easier for you as well as all the fun of learning new projects every month.
