They say, 'start off small', but I decided in true Victoria style, to defy the rules, and my first order was a wedding cake.

A colleague at work caught wind of my love of baking, and tasked me with making the cake for her big day. Practice makes perfect and after a few attempts and making sure the ombre icing matched the Pantone of her event decorations (detail is important to me!) I was proud to have successfully delivered my first order. When I say I make bespoke, personal masterpieces, I really do mean it, the cake was decorated with flowers hand-picked from her Mum's garden. After such a successful first order, and a glowing testimonial from the bride, my orders started trickling through, thick and fast. 

I firmly believe that all of the disasters I entailed as a child made me the baker I am today. I am passionate about what I do, whether it's picking the best ingredients, or meeting a tricky challenge, I throw my heart and soul into what I do to ensure that my clients are over the moon with their orders every time!

"Victoria's passion for baking was I believe borne of (her) necessity - I cooked the savoury courses but almost never added a sweet course for family meals.

"So she started creating her own. Battling for space in the kitchen was a regular catalyst for arguments, and as for the floury mess she created - the kitchen often resembled a snowfield. But she's done what few people ever do, and translated her love for baking into a definite skill and vocation and a viable small business has been born."
