My name is Vanessa Martin, I am 29 years old
married with 4 Daughter and 1 step son, aged 11,8,2, 9 months and 6years

I started decorating frequently in October 2013,
but before then I had made a handful of cakes for my childrens birthdays the previous year.

It all started when a friend on facebook asked if I could make her daughters birthday cake,
I was a little reluctant as my cakes were FAR from good,
but she insisted that she would be happy with anything and that her daughter loved Peppa Pig,

so then it begun,

with every cake I made and uploaded to my personal facebook, 1 or 2 more friends would ask me to make their next occasion cake,
After 10 or so cakes for others I Loved it so much, that I thought I may aswell start a little business out of it.

BEST DECISION I HAD EVER MADE

In the first 6 months of cake decorating, I had made over 100 cakes,
donated 6 cakes to local charity fundraisers and held over 8 giveaways on my facebook page.
