Reply What prompted you to take up cake decorating/baking as a hobby/business?

I bought a cake for my one year old daughter and thought – “I could do that”. Then when I ordered a christening cake which had a frill around it that defied gravity – that was it. I had to learn how to do this. So I set about learning first novelty cakes at evening classes which I loved – because you had to design them from nothing and then went on to learn City & Guilds Sugarcraft – all the time I was making party and wedding cakes. I loved it. Creating edible art. But then I moved onwards to combine my Sugarcraft skills with my business coaching and small business skills and CakeCoachOnline was born. I am passionate about using my creative skills now to make products especially to help the sugarcraft industry.
