I started making cakes for family birthdays in the 1980s, really simple fondant covered cakes. I couldn't find fondant in the shops back then so I made it myself using icing sugar and liquid glucose - which I had to buy from the local chemists! In the early 1990s I made my first wedding cake for my sister. It was a three tiered, royal iced cake with lots of fondant rosebuds, the design I got from a Mary Ford cake decorating book that I loved at the time.

I stopped making cakes pretty much after this, making the very occasional cake for a birthday or Christmas. In 2011, I started making a few more cakes, but the birth of my son kept my cake making on the back burner for a while.

Nowadays I make cakes for family and friends, or to try out a new technique or design that's inspired me. I love to experiment and come up with ways to achieve the result I envisage in my mind.

I started making cakes when I was a teenager for my family, and I’ve done so on and off since. I really thought I’d give this cake business a go when I had my son and packed my job in to look after him, and I love it! I can’t believe I spent so many years in a job I mostly hated :D.
