My very proud moment shared with my partner and my two beautiful sons!
My entries were a jewellery box and steampunk wedding themed cupcakes which were Chocolate fudge and Red velvet. I made jewels using isomalt sugar and the box was airbrushed lilac, finished with a gold sheen and adorned with various broaches and pearls.
The year was busy and filled with cake. Having been a chef I wanted to get back into the professional kitchen and embarked on a Patisserie course at Hopwood Hall college which I love and got to work in the restaurant kitchen serving up some amazing desserts.
I also started to train to teach at a local college in Bury, teaching cake decorating. I absolutely loved this and you get to meet some wonderful people who want to learn.
Then disaster struck and I broke my foot!! It was difficult with the children and not been able to drive, suddenly my fast pace life came to a total standstill! Having great family and friends I managed and thankfully I could still bake from home!
It gave me more time to look at things mainly the internet and then the one thing I’ve been looking for for many years suddenly appeared! The perfect Shop!
So I was back on my feet and raring to go… only bigger and crazier. As we enter 2016 a new phase will see the launch of the first
‘Lilli Oliver Cake Boutique’
I hope you will continue to follow us within the ‘Cake Chaos of 2016’ as there are many exciting and sweet times ahead…
