It all began by accident really, I never grew up thinking I wanted to be a cake designer.
I was working as a qualified nursery nurse, married and it was my son's 1st birthday. I needed a cake for his party but after previously ordering a cake for his christening from a well known bakery in the area, which I felt was overpriced and poor quality, I needed an alternative. I've always had a creative streak and admit to being a bit of a perfectionist I thought I'd take on the task myself.
As a first attempt I even impressed myself and it was great to hear all the positive comments from guests.
To prove to myself it wasn't a fluke, and at that time in 2008 novelty cake availability was limited, I embraced my sons interest in "In The Night Garden" and made him a Macca Pacca cake for his 2nd birthday
I then went on to make spiderman, optimus prime and after my daughter was born in 2011 finally managed to do something girly and pink!!
It escalated to family and friends asking for favours and before I knew it I had quite a portfolio.
