Some of my earliest childhood memories of baking are being sat in my grandmas kitchen and watching mesmerised as she baked scones and biscuits for all of the family to enjoy. Whilst growing up I always enjoyed baking treats with my mum too, I fondly remember the old Bero book we had in the kitchen that was quite worn in the end from so much use. As an adult I didn’t actually engage in much baking again until I had my first baby in 2012 and challenged myself bake his birthday cake. It wasn’t a particularly exciting cake or indeed an ambitious design – it was a simple buttercream affair with rainbow coloured sponges...but this marked the start of my exciting journey into cake decorating.
A few years passed as I continued creating cakes for family celebrations and trying to teach myself the tricks of the trade along the way. I spent many hours reading books, watching tutorials on YouTube and following tips in baking groups online. It transpired that I had quite a flair for baking and decorating and soon enough others were requesting cakes for their special occasions too. In 2015 I registered as a food business and Storeybook Cakes was born.

My business grew rather quickly and I invested more into professional classes to up-level my skills and it wasn’t long before I was ready to enter the wonderful world of wedding cakes, it is truly an honour to be trusted to create such a special cake. I love working with couples to bring their ideas to life; turning those initial concepts into a dream wedding cake to be remembered long after their special day.

Being able to offer my clients an unrivalled service with a wealth of experience is incredibly important to me, I regularly invest in my business in order to keep up with the latest trends and techniques. My cake expertise has been built up by fine tuning my skills over the years along with completing many specialist training courses with some of the worlds finest sugar florists and most acclaimed wedding cake designers.

I absolutely adore my job and there is nothing that gives me greater joy and pride than hearing my couples happily recount of how they felt so in awe the first time they saw their wedding cake or hearing how much their guests took pleasure in admiring and tasting in their cake.
In my spare time between wedding seasons I now also teach private cake decorating classes to other cake designers who are looking to learn the art of baking, decorating and sugar floristry to take their cake designs and businesses to the next level.
