She's just as sweet as her cakes, so I had to get down into the nitty gritty and ask her what exactly she is all about!
My fave flavour is chocolate mud cake for sure, and coconut buttercream icing.
I started my business from nothing. It was very hard at first, and took at least 6 months to get into some kind of groove. But I slowly got better at the day to day running of things, and it's lead me to where I am today.
Most my days are business focussed. The beginning of my week is usually quieter and I pretend that is my weekend - it's the only time I get to have off. The rest of the week I am baking. On Fridays and Saturdays I am decorating my orders for the weekend, doing deliveries, waiting on pick ups or setting up wedding cakes at wedding venues.
Number one would be making 400 West Tigers themed cupcakes for Ashfield Leagues Club.
I've also ran a cupcake demonstration and interactive workshop at Boston Consulting Group in Sydney CBD.
I'm also so proud of all of my tiered wedding cakes - it's so exciting setting them up at the wedding venues.
If you are looking for a cake designer, you want to be sure that they are the right person for the job and completely understand what you are after.
Ensure that your potential cake designer knows what they are talking about and are clear with what their boundaries are.
I also recommend checking out their Terms & Conditions to make sure you're happy with them.
Reviews are a good indication too as to whether you have found a good cake designer.
Be clear with your designer, because being unclear can potentially make things confusing, and can make the booking process much longer than it should be.
If your designer has a website, it's good to have a look through to see what their procedures are. These can usually be found in FAQ's, but more likely in their T&C's.
Other good questions to ask would be:
- What is your availability?
- What's your most popular flavour? (This is for both cake and frosting).
- Can I send through some images of cakes I like? Remember that cake designers should not copy other designs, and that they should never look exactly like a picture you send through. Cake can, however, have a similar design style, just can't be an exact replica.
Customers know that what they order is exactly what they receive, and if by some chance I make a mistake, I always rectify it.
They can also expect that their order will be fulfilled to the best of my ability, and what I make is always made with love.
