Marie's Bakehouse

covering Trafford, West Manchester and surrounding area

Hi, I’m Marie, living in Manchester with my husband and two beautiful daughters.

I’ve had my own cake business for almost ten years, and have been teaching sugarcraft classes for almost as long.

Prior to having my own business, I worked as a Primary School Teacher so have a couple of decades of teaching under my belt! What I love most about teaching is the transformation from a student arriving saying “I’ll never be able to make that”, then two hours later seeing how pleased they are with what they’ve produced.

I’m thrilled to be involved with Cake Minds as I believe strongly in the use of creative crafts, regular social time, and development of a hobby for promoting positive mental health.  I’m also an advocate for getting children involved in a creative hobby and love my classes teaching children from the age of five to teenage.

I’ve gained several awards from Cake International over the years in categories including celebration cake, wedding cake and cupcakes, including several golds and one best in class.
