I had made a few butter cream covered cakes for friends since I was a teen (bought the sponge and the frosting!) then in 2012 I made a cake for a friends daughter... Who then posted it on facebook.
And the rest they say is history! I was sucked right in to the awesome world of cake-making, saying YES to everything!- loving the challenges, the opportunity to create and the feeling of pride in my work. Moreso with cake making than with any other job I've had.
I also love the networking, connecting with like-minded creative people all over the world - mostly of whom want to share their knowledge and experiences. It's such a thrill to be acknowledged by these artists that I view to be celebrities!
I love looking at and being inspired by people's art, it's gobsmacking the talent that's out there innit?!
