covering Chelmsford and surrounding area

I am currently starting to teach cake decorating to complement my cake business where I specialise in large celebration and wedding cakes, I love how random some orders are, how involved and therapeutic designing and creating a memorable cake for my customers can be.

I started cake decorating after giving up work in Essex Police to look after my children. I bought a cheap book from Amazon and they chose the most difficult cakes in the book. I loved making them and found it really enjoyable but think model making is the one I enjoy the most.

Starting as a business on my own has made me the most proud. I wasn’t the most confident of people, but this has helped me a great deal and I find the cake industry a supportive industry. I was over the moon to have one of my cakes featured in TOWIE for Nelly’s first birthday a few years ago

I think that Cake Minds is a great idea as it brings similar groups of people together and builds new relationships as well as learning something new. I've been looking to start model making classes for a while and Cake Minds offers me this opportunity along with a supportive network of other teachers.

Outside of my cake business I love spending time with my family and walking the dog. I also love yoga, pilates and Netflix.

Rhu is passionate about her teachers, supporting and enabling them to build their own network of students. Most students are new to Sugarcraft and are cheered on as they pursue their own journeys in this exciting and diverse community, forming lifelong friendships that involve more than just the regular meetings.


Cake Minds aims to build a global network of teachers that offer new skills by bringing together the Sugarcraft community from a virtual platform to a local supportive community near you. Support and advice is offered in a mindful and creative space on a regular basis in small, friendly, informal settings.
