Foodies Festival 2018 Brighton

The sun shone gloriously upon our first Foodies Festival outing of 2018 on Brighton’s Hove Lawns. The Bank Holiday weekend may feel like a long time ago now but with show two hot on its heels, I’ve only just now had the time to go through all of the amazing photographs we took. Before I share them all with you … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Five Tiered Floral & Flutter

I do love making Wedding Cakes for my friends. Generally, these are the poor souls who trust me enough to let me just kind of run with their ideas and be creative. Jonny and Gina were one such couple and, as we gathered to celebrate their wedding on 14th April, the sun even put in an appearance for the first … Read More

Dreamcatcher Cake in Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine

If you pick up a copy of the March/April 2018 issue of Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine, you will see that I did not win the title of Cake Decorator of the Year. The award went to the incredible Zoe Clark and just being nominated next to someone so well-known and well-loved has been a pleasure. Thank you to everyone who … Read More

Foodies Festival Xmas at Tatton Park

What a wonderful weekend we had in chilly Cheshire, celebrating all things festive at Foodies Festival Christmas. Our mini-theatre was set amongst stalls selling all manner of delicious treats – the mulled wine and brownies for immediate enjoyment, as well as the truckle cheese and fancy liqueurs that I know I have already started stocking up on for the big … Read More

The Goodwood Revival 2017 PICTURES

If I am completely honest, I am still very much recovering from all the fun we had over the weekend at The Goodwood Revival. Yes, the weather was appalling but that did not spoil the shopping or the baking in The Kenwood Kitchen Theatre! My menu this year was inspired by all things Italian – a Tiramisu Cake and Sicilian … Read More

Foodies Festival Edinburgh PICTURES

Special thanks to Steven Todd at Flare Photography for this photo! Travelling to Edinburgh with Foodies Festival always feels like a homecoming of sorts. Foodies started in Edinburgh as a show running alongside the Edinburgh Festival, the idea being that chances were high that many of the visitors for the comedy and theatre and music may also be interested in … Read More

Rock Me, Amadeus

Of the many things that I get passionate about, music was probably my first love. I was fortunate because my Father is a musician and ran a music shop for the first 16 years of my life – there was always music to listen to and always instruments to play music on. My first documented live performance was at the … Read More

Foodies Festival Newcastle PICTURES

I’ll not lie, I have been a working on a bit of a slower pace last week and this week. Having been out on the road for four weekends in a row, I was in need of a rest.
