Originally from the UK now living the dream in New Zealand.

I have had a few very interesting jobs, all academic but nothing in the food industry, and after many years of dabbling with cake decorating as a hobby I decided it was now or never, and set up my own bespoke cake business.

I love creating new ideas, and especially enjoy it when clients come to me with some really off the wall ideas to see if I can replicate them in a cake.

I think it's great when fellow cake decorators share knowledge, tips and ideas.

I don't get precious about people using my designs...I'm flattered if anything I do has inspired you, and if you create something that's based on one of my designs just a credit for the original idea on your web page or FB will be much appreciated, and I'd love to see your version.

Happy Baking Folks :)

Easy Poppy tutorial

I needed to make poppies last night and came up with this easy way of replicating the poppy badges you wear, but into fondant for cakes. No fancy tools needed. They look great if you make two flowers and layer them too.
