I've always loved being creative, since I was young, but I was usually very bad at it! I had no way of channelling it into something real until I studied to be a chef. I worked really hard for a couple of years, in England and then opening a few small restaurants in South Africa, I decided that I needed to do something for myself. I started a catering company from home, doing a few jobs while looking after my first child. After having my second Child, I had some tough times, at which point I was not working.
So I decided to start catering again. The first client I had asked me to make some Alice in Wonderland themed cakes, which i had never done before and ever since then, that's all I've been doing! It is such a good creative outlet for me and it has kept me feeling like me!


Chef Sam , you have a great talent and amazing work !! Wish you the best.


I absolutely love your shoe cake Sam! It’s gorgeous. I have just given a quote for a shoe cake and I’ve never made one so I’d better get practising! X
