Heather - the passion in the baking and creating

Thank you for clicking on this page, I hope it helps us to get to know each other a little before you follow your dreams and get in touch to make your occasion extra special with the

cakes and treats I'll make for you.

I've been making cakes for nearly 30 years, ever since I wanted to make and decorate my own wedding cake. I went to evening classes to learn to make the sugar flowers and that is when my passion for cake decorating began.

A special day, with a special man, and a very special wedding cake!

I've had a super career being a Food Technology and Special Needs teacher for 33 years.


How many times have I cajoled, motivated and passed on my knowledge to thousands of pupils? showing them how to respect their ingredients, how they blend together, using techniques to ensure their dishes, cakes and pastries

look and taste the best they can (and are edible!)


Over the years, my passion and skills for creating have grown and grown, I am constantly being inspired by professional cake artists, there is just so much to learn and add!  That is why I am so keen to continue to and improve my skill set by attending a range of different cake decorating courses every year.  More and more people were asking me if I could make a

cake for their celebration after seeing cakes I had made for family and friends, and because I love

baking and decorating, it was hard to say 'no'.


When the time came for change, I waved goodbye to teaching and immersed myself in the world of celebration cakes and bakes.  Funnily enough, I don't miss teaching like I thought I would.  Those golden moments of exhilaration when pupils

realise they can do something new, are now replaced with moments of pure joy when a customers'

bespoke cake is revealed for the first time, their eyes light up and they can't wait to show it off!

There is just nothing to beat that feeling...
