My life has revolved around preparing and presenting delicious food and cakes for everyone. My favourite times as a child were helping my Mum and Granny in the kitchen either making cakes for tea, Sunday lunches or buffet foods for big parties.
Unsurprisingly, I chose the catering and hotel industry as a career. After 3 years studying at Westminster Catering College in London, I joined the management team at a contract catering company in Surrey.
However, my interest and passion for cake decorating developed whilst I was at home looking after our three children. I have attended many classes in London and Surrey with some renowned cake tutors to perfect my techniques.
After many years of making all sorts of cakes for family and friends I was encouraged to start my own cake business, Kraftman Cakes.
Recently, I have become an accredited cake tutor with Paul Bradford and now I run cake courses to teach students some of his fantastic cake designs.
