My name is Fiona Evans. I was raised in Africa and moved to England aged 21 with my (then) husband and two of my children (now there are three and five grandchildren). In my mid 50s I took up cake decorating in my home in the South of England. I mainly make cakes for family and friends. I have no training or experience in art and simply love creating celebration cakes for people to enjoy. No airbrushing, moulds, texture mats or gadgets (apart from an extruder gun !). All my work is hand crafted and hand finished. I have no certificates, awards or medals and I don't enter competitions. I have gained a lot of knowledge through trial (and much error) which I love to share with others.
I use to attend a weekly class at The Cake Lady in Southampton where I learned how to make flowers and am self taught with the character modelling, 3D, carved and reality cakes. I made my first reality cake in 2011 (the mountaineering boots) and have loved making realism cakes ever since!
I use Alan Dunn's books for flower creations and templates but mostly I follow a real flower for guidance. I make my own veiners.
If you think you're not an artist, think again. We are all artists in our own way. I love looking at other people's creations and particularly love teaching and encouraging others to design and make their own creations. I am lucky to have a studio now which has made all the difference in the world! I often give one-to-one demonstrations in the studio and have been invited to give demonstrations to organised groups which I am looking forward to.

These have been my most popular cake and CakesDecor very kindly selected them as Editor’s Choice last year. I have been promising for ages to put together a guide to making these for those of you who have said ‘I can’t do that...
I received a lot of interest in this cake board for my latest cake which had a boot on it and so have put together a few pictures I took during the process. 1. Roll out fondant onto board. Mix the fondant to the lightest shade of the stone an...

I have been asked several times for a tutorial on this, so I have made this video which is a collection of photos I took at the time and is by no means the best way to do one. It is merely a guide if you haven’t made one b...
