When did you start cake decorating?
I have always made cakes for my children’s
birthday parties and then about 2 years ago started making cakes for friends as I wanted to build up a portfolio of cakes to advertise. Would like to do this full time but that’s a distant dream as it’s not sustainable at the moment. I still make cakes mainly for friends but have managed to build a small portfolio so now I need to start advertising to grow my business.
If you studied where did you study?
Did not study any pastry courses, I’m a tax specialist by profession so have studied in that line.
If you did courses basic course through a fellow baker/decorator (any course not
recognised basically) please advise what and where?
Only tutorials which I bought from Craftsy.com and other free tutorials on internet.
Was it something you always wanted to do?
Yes, I have always baked with my mom, but never used fondant for decorations until I started with my children’s cakes.
Biggest challenge as a cake decorator?
Grand Piano cake, which was not as perfect as I would have liked it to be.
Any advice for people looking to start doing cake decorating ?
Make some time to spend on the internet. Google is your best friend!
