I am a solo baker and decorator. My journey in cake decorating started in Feb 2010 when I walked into my first cake class. 2 months later I did my first cake, my son's wedding cake, and have been on such a roller coaster of confectionery creative fun ever since.
I enjoy pushing my own boundaries, testing out new ideas and mediums and constantly challenge myself where I can. I embrace learning with a passion as I am a huge advocate that you never stop learning, it was artists do.... learn and strive for more and more... with PASSION and verve and the sheer joy of creating.
I am fortunate enough to have an equal balance between my wonderful supportive family and my cakes. I have forged genuine, much valued friendships in this joyful community of confection. I firmly advocate knowledge-sharing and have now started a shop for tutorials on my cake page. In 2015 I will be running workshops in various venues countrywide. I am already teaching privately in my area.
