My cake journey started out as a young girl obsessed with sweet treats. I learned to make my favourite bakes mainly so that I could fuel this obsession by whipping them up whenever I wanted. Over time, friends and family started to comment on my cakes and suggested several times that I should start up a business. They were very flattering comments but a lack of confidence prevented me from pursuing it any further. The more I baked, the more positive comments I received, so instead of diving in head first, I decided to dip my toes in to test the water. I started up a free website where I could upload images of my cakes and named the site Love & Cakes.
