I am truly blessed to be able to contribute regularly to two top cake decorating magazines – I told you all about my 2018 series in Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft Magazine last week, where I am creating cakes inspired by the greatest stars of the silver screen but did you know that I also write about new cake decorating trends in Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine?
In this publication, I look for ways to create the latest looks using the latest products on the market to make it all super easy. In the current issue of Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine, I create a rustic look using two amazing products from The Cake Decorating Company to make this cake in a matter of moments.
OK, well not ‘moments’ but in a lot less time than you would think.
I feel blessed to be able to write for these fab magazines as I do rather love to write! Funnily enough, if I had to list my occupation I would probably put ‘writer’ – though, with a couple of published books to my name, technically, I can call myself an ‘author’ which feels very fancy indeed. Of course, I am still a Cake Designer by trade and most of my writing is tutorial, to help you recreate my designs at home. Every now and then someone tells me that a technique of mine has helped them. You can consider my day made.
So I was utterly surprised, honoured, and a little overwhelmed to be nominated for Cake Decorator of the Year in the first ever Cake Decorating Heaven Awards. Honestly, I had no idea! I was casually browsing my copy of the latest issue on a lazy Sunday afternoon and found my name printed amongst some incredible company in the shortlist for this award. I posted about it on social media and the response that I received was so kind that I genuinely feel like a winner already.
What a lovely way to go into a new year, with all of your kind messages behind me. I’m on top of the world.
For good karma, I will not be voting for myself and I do particularly admire one of my fellow nominees (I won’t tell you who but I have the biggest girl crush on her cakes!) BUT if you would like to vote for me, I would be very grateful!
To do so, you will need to click here to visit www.foodheavenmag.com/awards and you will need to vote in all categories. I’ll hope that many of you are keen bakers and have some idea of where to click your precious votes.
I promise not to bore you all with loads of social media about the voting but, if you would like to share any of my posts with your own friends, I’ll not stop you!
Good luck to all of the amazing brands and Cake Designers nominated.
