One thing I love to make is occasion cakes, each one is special as it is individually designed for a friend or family member based on what they like.
I started making these kinds of cakes when i was about 20 and the more I did the more I enjoyed it. I quickly learnt how challenging it was when I tried to make my first decorations, which were very basic!
Luckily for me a family friend called lyn, owned her own cake business and was always on hand with hints and tips when I needed them and always encouraged me to just go for it, when things got too hard she was there to pick up the peices (and bail me out) by making some decorations for me. She really is the most talented cake artist I know and will always be my cake guru, we all need a little help sometimes!
This is the link to her shop, based in eastwood nottingham.
Here is a selection of the celebration cakes I have made over the years for friends and family.
