My passion for baking and decorating cakes is something I have to thank my Mother Gail for.  As the eldest of 5 children there were always plenty of opportunities to sit in the kitchen watching and helping her to bake delicious and beautiful cakes for birthdays and other family occasions.

In 2009 I decided to turn my hobby in to my profession and enrolled at Brooklands College in Weybridge where, over a three year period, I achieved distinctions in all of the courses attended.


Dorking Cake maker wins national competitionWhilst at Brooklands College I had the opportunity to exhibit my cakes in national student competitions and achieved:

• A gold award at the ABC Inter-College Competition held at Bournmouth in 2010.

• A gold medal in the ‘Renshaw Cup’ at the Alliance for Bakery Students & Trainers  Annual Conference in June 2011.


In December 2011 I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Eric Lanlard whilst taking part in an episode of his series ‘Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard’ for Channel 4.
