After achieving my NVQ levels at college, I started out as a pastry chef in John Lewis in 2001 where I built the foundations of my future career.
Six years later, I continued to pursue my dream and progress in the industry by moving away from everything I knew to the island of Ibiza working as the Head Chef in a beautiful restaurant in Santa Eulalia, creating British & Mediterranean a la carte cuisine.
In 2010 I returned to the UK beginning my new venture with a company called Clifton Cakes, crafting and decorating bespoke wedding & celebration cakes. I soon discovered I had a real flair for baking and knew this was the industry where I would make a name for myself.
Since that day, I have developed the skills, technique and experience necessary to create the most beautiful cakes for all occasions. Training in the art of sugar crafting and chocolate sculpting, I now pass on my knowledge by teaching various classes for others to learn.
Thirteen years on, I decided it was time to show the world what I can do on my own. My company CakeSmiths was founded in 2013.
