I work from my home kitchen which is small but clean and efficient. I am very house proud and was elated when I received a level 5 from the Food Standards Agency for my workspace. When my customers purchase cakes from me, they can have full confidence that their cake was made with love from a baker with high standards.
My favourite thing to make is happy people. That is what spurs me on when I bake. Apart from that, I love to make Victoria sponge cakes because its such a classic. It’s so easy to make and tastes delicious.
Most of my inspiration comes from a love of the vintage era, particularly the 1920s - 1950s. Everything was so classic and elegant which is a style that really appeals to me and which is seen throughout my cake designs.
To relax, I like to spend time with friends and family. I also love watching a certain celebrity judge on tv and enjoy learning from other cake bakers and decorators such as Mich Turner, Peggy Porschen, Rosalind Miller, Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, Alan Dunn and Buddy Valastro to name a few. Much to my husband’s dismay, I could literally watch baking and cake decorating programs all day!
I love talking about cake and baking, but its also great to see how far a bit of confidence and self belief can take you. I hope you have enjoyed this post and getting to know not just the face, but the person behind Beez Cakes.
