MEET THE MAKER
Baking through the years
I seem to have been making cakes forever! I loved making birthday cakes for my two wonderful daughters, Vicky & Amy, as they were growing up. This seemed to flow into making cakes for family & friends and friends of friends...
However when I went back to work the cake making took a back seat, only to resurface many years later after doing a cupcake decorating demonstration at a church community event. So many people encouraged me to start again, which was lovely.
I started Curious Cupcake Company in 2013, making cupcakes and celebration cakes mainly and one or two wedding cakes in my spare time. In that time my experience has grown and my focus has shifted more towards wedding cakes and celebration cakes. I love creating stunning, showpiece wedding cakes and celebration cakes with hand crafted, finely detailed sugar flowers. I keep a constant eye on the latest trends and new techniques, looking at how I can incorporate them into my cakes.
A few years ago I had the privilege of working with a cake decorating magazine publisher, creating step by step features of cakes and cupcakes. I loved writing these step by steps and hope to continue creating similar projects on my own website and social media.
It's hard to grow a cake design business in my 'spare time' so at the end of July 2018, I bit the bullet and left my job to start a new adventure, and crafted cakes was born.
I do hope you like the new website and more importantly that the style and quality of my cakes echoes the heart of what you are looking for in a wedding or celebration cake.
It would be lovely to hear from you soon, I look forward to creating something exquisite for your special occasion.
