Hi all. I mentioned in my most recent competition wins blog post that I was super lucky enough to win a cupcake decorating class. But not just any cupcake decorating class, a class with my most favourite and inspirational cake maker.. Carina of Carinas Cupcakes! If you haven’t already heard of her, she creates the most fantastic, original, and detailed cakes. Check out her Facebook page, she has almost 50,000 fans on there! Her designs are all very intricate and feminine, and usually include beautiful pastel colours and frills. I love her cakes, but I never thought I would be…

This weekend I had some fun making my own Easter eggs! Well, with a little help from a kit I was sent from Lakeland. They kindly sent me a few products to try out, including their chocolate spoon mould, a melting pot, Easter egg moulds, and Home Cook Belgian cooking chocolate.

Hi everyone! I’ve had such a busy week! Things have really taken off with my cake business and I’m so pleased! I had lots of orders over Valentines Day so I’ve been rushed off my feet but couldn’t be happier the way things are going. I’ve already got 360 likers on my Facebook page which I’m thrilled about! And I’ve been putting up my leaflets in local shops etc so it’s nice to be a part of the community.  Anyway here are some photos of my Valentines cupcake orders, although not all of them! They look so yummy but I’m…
