I started out making my friend a birthday cake every year, which got more and more elaborate as time went on… until I began practicing in between; making bespoke cakes for any friends and family events just so I could try new things. This really started up my creativity and I branched out into felt crafts; animals turned into animal garlands which evolved into animal baby mobiles and soon I could deck out a whole nursery with felt creatures!

I knew I had a real passion for this so I undertook my Food Hygiene Certificate which I passed with flying colours, ready to become a proper cake maker! 

Creating bespoke cakes Peter Rabbit cake topper

When it comes to bespoke cakes, sugar paste modelling is my favourite thing; I’ve made loads of characters from Peter Rabbit to Alan Titchmarsh, so no challenge is too great!

From birthdays to anniversaries and every celebration in between, I’ll whip up a special bespoke cake for the day.

As a cake maker, nothing compares to putting a smile on people’s faces with some sweet treats, so I also make brownies, cookies and candies so you don’t have to wait for a special occasion and a big cake to cheer up a friend or enjoy some baked goodness yourself.

On the crafty side, I love making felt characters; most of my decorations and gifts feature cute little critters that I try to bring to life in fabric.

Seeing a new-mum’s smile at her baby shower gift or a birthday-boy beaming at his dinosaur decorations is why I want to make every little fuzzy friend unique and special! I like to make these felt friends in lots of different settings, from garlands to baby mobiles. If there’s something new that I haven’t thought of, but that would give your nursery the finishing touch I’d love to make something unique for you.
