Dear Sugar Diary, There are things you don’t know when you get into caking. Things no one can prepare you for. So I have put together a list of the top 10 things I have learned the HARD way since I began caking…... 1) Everyone is NOT going to be nice to you. Not everyone will like your cakes…and not everyone will have something nice to say. And it will get you down…it will fester for a while and hurt your feelings…You will need to grow a tough skin and do ...
Hi, bakers, if anyone has a cherry/banana cake recipe that you’d like to share, PLEASE, post it – you’ll be helping me out of a jam (no pun intended). I just got an order for a Mother’s Day cake and the client wants a white cake with a cherry-banana filling. I’ve never done this combination – but I would think that a cherry filling is quite sweet and maybe a chocolate cake might be better… but since I’m not sure, I will welcome your recipes!...

Whoop my first blog entry!! What shall I write about? Shall I bore you with useless information about how I stumbled upon cakey making? Yes, I think I shall :D I have been surrounded by craftly folk all my life! My Grandma’s, Mum, Auntie Karen and cousins. For as long as I can remember, arts and crafts have been the main constant hobby while growing up. My earliest memories are of me and my cousin making plaster shell pictures, pom poms, quilled cards and just gluing and sticking any...
