Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a major foodie, with a haphazard cooking philosophy, currently making that transition from cooking and baking for friends and family to 'wonder if I could make this my career'. Follow me for recipes, the outcomes of a few experiments, and general lovely foodiness. Opinions, reviews and recommendations are all my own.

Cake Designs

I'm an amateur cake decorator, and I harbour a not so secret desire to become professional one day. I'm lucky enough to have amazing friends and family that give me opportunities to practice and hone my skills, and I added this page to showcase some of my cake designs... I hope you all like them! Any feedback is gladly received!

  1. I think your cakes are wonderful! Have you had professional training? Jeannette

    1. Jeanette thank you sooooo much! I am doing a course in making sugarcraft flowers, but everything else is self taught. Generally I use google for inspiration, and there are some great tutorials on blogs and You Tube out there.

    2. Thank you for replying so quickly. You have some very good ideas! J.

    3. You're welcome, and thank you again! :-) x

  2. These are all fantastic! You're so talented, Victoria!

  3. Hi! I absolutely love your cake designs! I am one month away from my sweet sixteen party and I was wondering if you have a store that I can order your cake from?

    1. Thank you that's lovely! I do sell them yes, but they are made bespoke to order. I'm in Chesterfield in the UK - and all orders are collection only, we don't ship or deliver. Thanks, Victoria


Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog! I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a comment - I always try to reply as soon as possible.
