About Me

Well, like most girls I started baking with my mum and nana at an early age. Everything from cookies and slices to cakes and pies. While I never saw baking as a career path, it has been pretty good for my sweet tooth – ok teeth..

I am a school teacher that has taught Visual Art for over twelve years, not a baker, chef or expert cake maker – this for me is a hobby, and has just recently turned into an obsession (this cake decorating stuff is ssooooo addictive – it really is!) I only started working with fondant and getting right into the decorating stuff 6 years ago; after I had my kids actually. You know, typical mum story….creating the biggest, coolest cake you can for your precious child. Well, that’s what I tried and I haven’t stopped since, trying each time to get better and better; now I’m addicted and doing it for every friend, relative and colleague that wants or needs a cake. And, to be honest, I’m loving it.

I read books, watch you tube tutorials and change how I do things to make the next cake better than I made the last. There’s no right or wrong way, just ‘your’ way – or sometimes ‘better ways’ of doing things. This blog is to share my cakes, cookies, ideas, tips and tricks along with the stores and suppliers in the Brisbane area for mums and amateurs like me who want to give this a go. I hope you enjoy my journey with coloured sugar and happy baking:)
