Cooking has been my passion since I left school, honing my skills as a manager in the kitchen of a local care centre while pursuing my dream of design. A chance encounter with a cake decorating course at Tameside College sparked something within me, setting me on a path to mastering the art of cake decorating and baking over two intensive years.

In November 2011, buoyed by unwavering support from my husband Alistair and family, I made the leap to turn my cake-making hobby into a full-time career. Soon, my clientele grew, encompassing several local stockists, along with appearances at bustling wedding fairs and artisan markets. However, the onset of COVID demanded a change in direction, leading me to embrace local and nationwide deliveries to reach our valued customers.
