Owner at Lily Belles Cakes, Dublin. I started as most people do, baking as a kid, but started decorating when my girls came along. Family started urging me to take it further, so enrolled on my first course in January 2011. I found it easy and wanted to challenge myself more so took a few more, more difficult courses. Practiced and practiced, watched 1000s of hours of you tube tutorials, until I felt I was up to scratch to make cakes for other people outside family. Eventually took the plunge, got registered, joined some fab groups and set up Lily Belles Cakes. Haven't looked back. Love a challenge, enjoy selling ideas to customers and then going aaah..how am I going to do that. Favourite cakes to make are christening cakes. Have met many cakey friends along the way.
