So, who am I?! Well, in short, I'm a wife, a mum to two boys and I'm also a proud nanna of Romeo Blue, Darcie-Rae and very recently Nancie-Rae. I live and work from my home in a village just outside of Blackpool, Lancashire.
I started baking and decorating cakes from my kitchen in my spare time in 2011, just as a hobby, but as word spread, the demand started to become greater than the time I could afford. I knew I could meet the challenge and I started working on my plan to turn my kitchen into a fully functioning mini bakery. On the 13th May 2013 I passed my Council Hygiene Inspection with flying colours, after which I gradually expanded my fledgling business and gained experience, teaching myself new techniques and rising to new challenges, while still working at my day job as a barista in an independant coffee bar. On 6th July 2016 I worked my last shift at the coffee bar and finally took the massive step of becoming fully self employed. Since then, it's just kept going onwards and upwards!
Looking towards to the next couple of years, I have a few new ideas for 2017/18, including one-to-one lessons on everything from cupcakes to wedding cakes, something I've been dreaming about for a few years now - I just love teaching people how to make pretty cakes, and passing on the knowledge that I've gathered over my time as a cake maker and decorator. I'm also looking forward to making many more wedding cakes, as this has become a real passion. I just love the whole process from first enquiry, though the consultation stage, and eventually seeing the final result all set up at the venue and ready to be enjoyed as the first cake of the newly-weds married life! My favourite ever cake? My own wedding cake - so proud of it!
