Mum, wife, friend, caker, netballer...pretty much sums me up!

I've always loved making cakes for my four children's birthdays but will confess that I'd buy supermarket madeira and try and make it look pretty! In April 2012 a friend asked me to make a cake for her son and my little business has grown from there. I even bake my own cakes these days ;)

Thank you, that’s lovely of you to take the time to comment. Minecraft is my nemesis! My boys are 11, 8 and 6 and even the youngest is getting keen now. Nooooo!

Bit addictive this caking malarky isn’t it?! I have started following you so I’ll know when you post your next cake. I’ve just finished one actually and have another to do later. I moan about no having any time to myself but I love it really ;) I blimey, I do ramble on. Ha x

My boys are 15, nearly 12 (cake to come) and 7! :)

I LOVED your Skylander cake, so original! We added a girl to the mix, she’s 3 and rules the roost!

Thank you so much, Mellie, for popping over to leave me a message. Means so very much.
After a couple of deep soul searching days, a decision was made.
It is very difficult to let go of something, that you have put so much time and effort into.
No regrets. Calm and relaxed now.
Anyway, thanks again. Julez XXX

Yes they keep me very busy! Boys aged 11, 8 and 6 and a fiesty girl of 3!

Centre or WA, you should get back to it, such great exercise and I love the feeling of being part of a team :) Sadly I have been out of action since April when I tore my anterior cruciate ligament :( having an op to correct it in a couple of weeks but am worried I won’t ever get back to my beloved netball…will have to see how it heals…

Also being surrounded by cake all day and not doing any exercise has done very little for my physical condition! Haha!
