Kicking Off 2018 in Style

I am officially bossing 2018 already… I set aside three days in my diary to blitz through an embarrassingly enormous pile of till receipts and invoices to complete my annual accounts and I’m done in two days. If the rest of the year proceeds in this same way, I dare say I’ll write a novel, take over the world, and … Read More

Aside from global events which make this date ominous, I very nearly missed my first days at The University of Westminster due to being unable to fly home to the UK from Chicago on September 12th as scheduled. We were all on the … Read More

Andy Warhol Looks a Scream

In my continuing series of cake designs inspired by great figures from history, my latest tutorial for Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft Magazine is inspired by Andy Warhol. As with so many other figures from the art world, my introduction to Andy Warhol came through David Bowie. My love of David Bowie has been crazy enough that I have wanted to learn … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: A Pair of Star-Crossed Lovers

The joy of being a bespoke Wedding Cake Designer is that I am afforded the opportunity to work with some genuinely interesting couples. Charlotte and Matthew are that!
