My earliest childhood memories are of delicious home-baked treats. My brother and I always knew that a visit to either of our grandparents would mean enjoying one of their specialties: for one grandmother it was an egg custard whilst from our other grandmother it would always be a lemon meringue pie. Of course, my mother was an excellent home baker as well – light as a feather victoria sponges. Sweet memories!
I’ve always had a love for creative skills. I learnt to knit and sew from my mother and expanded my needle skills later into freehand machine embroidery. My passion now is to combine these artistic skills with inspiration gained from my love of nature, architecture, fine art and absolutely anything that catches my eye. Now, as a baker and cake artist, I am able to continue using these skills in exploring the challenges of a new medium – sugar!
