Hi, I'm a home baker and cake decorator. I got made redundant 18 months. I decided to set myself up to sell cakes from home as its something I love and fitted in with my personal commitments. I also find that sugarcraft is very relaxing. I don't have a website but use facebook. My page is called 'Begona Bakes'. I wanted something clever as a business name but everything we came up had already been taken. In the end my husband came up with Begona Bakes, not terribly creative but it just felt right. It's one of my names, after my aunty, and ties in my Spanish background. Wish I had had the opportunity to do this years ago and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations and learning new skills.
