The Boutique Story
Where did it all begin? Well, thanks to my Nan and my Mum my early memories of cooking and baking are fond ones. Helping Nan make a pie for the family and having my very own piece of pastry to roll out, made me feel very special. Sunday was my favourite day of the week as it was Mum's baking day and I would so look forward the afternoon when we were allowed to (finally) tuck into the array of tea time treats she had so lovingly made.
It wasn’t until more recent times that my enthusiasm for all things sweet merged with a new found creative streak and I began designing & making cupcakes and birthday cakes for friends and family. With the support and encouragement of my nearest and dearest, my hobby began to grow into a small business and I started to perfect my sugar craft skills which launched me into the wedding industry.
I am predominantly self taught but have also be trained by some of the best sugar artists in the industry, including world renowned Maggie Austin from Maggie Austin Cake based in the U.S. and Tracy James from Cotton & Crumbs here in the UK. Learning from them has helped me develop my signature ethereal style, and attract discerning clients who are looking for meticulous design from a cake artist who is passionate about every single detail, and every moment of the journey to their wedding day and beyond.
So, here I am, enjoying this very exciting time and creating lots of edible memories for lots of lovely people.
