Cakes dont have to be 'cake' shaped and i actively encourage it!! Well, this is what i like to think anyways and it is the reason i started caking! I didnt actually know much about the cakey world just the round and square cakes you used to see at weddings or at supermarkets.
So i embarked on a journey to make cakes in any shape i liked! Ive always been artistic and my dad was a carpenter so i was taught to use powertools from a young age (look out theres a 16 year old running around with a drill) yes that was me haha.
Finally at 30 years old i found my vocation in life. I made a can of carling cake as a pressie to my boyfriend and i loved every minute of it so i decided to take a course on cake decorating and sugarcraft and my obsession started there!
Ive built frames to support many different cakes from a life sized staffy dog to a nissan gtr r35 cake that was so huge it fed 200 people! Even Top Gear presenters commented on it. These were just my early cakes and ive come on a long way since then. Im still learning as there is always something new to learn in cake decorating and this year i am finishing off my qualifications so that i can teach an accredited course in cake decorating in a college! (wish me luck lol)
Im a busy mum of 3 boys. I was still working the night i gave birth to my youngest son and 2 weeks after giving birth i was back baking cakes lol
I intend to make bigger and better cakes this year so watch this space! x
