September brings the start of colour in the trees.........well, Autumn is my favourite season after all..........the final blackberries and berries in the hedgerows and the start of cosy evenings in.

But most importantly, ....................CLASSES START BACK NEXT WEEK! :D


The summer break feels longer and longer each year, but I am so excited to be back to weekly classes tomorrow to see familiar and new faces alike.


We have a fab variety of subjects on offer this term and I simply can't wait.


So what else happened in August? Read on to find out.

Sorry for my absence! It has been rather busy here.


So what have I been up to? Well, the summer term weekly classes have now drawn to a close for the summer, and what a fabulous term we had. Above are the subjects for the six classes. (One picture per weekly class), and all my students produced wonderful work.


If you are interested in joining us in September, then visit the website as classes are now available to book.

Blimey!

Are you getting insane amounts of emails into your inbox? I most definitely am, so I decided that as it is a brand new blog which I set up when this GDPR stuff had all started anyway, that it would be easier anyway. So, I have just popped a little about it into your weekly email which you will receive at 6pm today as normal.

I did decide though, that you can only get one email a week now from me (lets save those inboxes), whereas previously you got one if I posted a new blog post. This way, you will just get a weekly roundup instead. Better? Hope so.


So lets talk fun stuff instead.


The Sweet Easy Gatsby Inspired Collaboration


This has literally just been released and its a good 'un! There are incredible artists in the group but as usual, I had a minimal amount of time I could spend, so what did I create? A cute little evening bag that can be carried from Rice Krispie Treats, Saracino and of course the fabulous Drageekiss.


So pop on over to see all the images, you will be blown away, I promise you!

Just a short blog post this week. Did you catch the last post? Scroll down to read it.


Wafer paper peony class review


I was totally blown away today with the wonderful and kind words from Mr Bakers Blog in the review on my wafer paper peony class.


We really did have a fabulous day and the results were truly gorgeous.


I amalways excited to see what students can produce, even having never worked with wafer paper or indeed sugarcraft! Wafer paper really is a versatile medium.

Well that was a shock wasn't it! A properly warm and sunny bank holiday in Wales! Wow! I hope you enjoyed yourself wherever you were.


I had a fab week off, but still manage to sneak in a collaboration - you will have to wait and see what! - and a demonstration at the fab Bridgend Sugarcraft Club.


#Whoyougonnacall


I loved the fab way that Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft magazine snuck in an early peek of my vintage phone cake tutorial. Released on National Paranormal Day, I didn't stop giggling at their #WhoYouGonnaCall

The tutorial will be in the June Issue that is out on the 24th May, so make sure you grab your copy. I had loads of fun making this one.

Welcome to my Blog.

 

Anyone who has been to one of my classes or Demonstrations knows that I am passionate about my craft.  I wholeheartedly believe that knowledge should be shared, so if I know something, I will happily tell you.

 

This includes my love of what I call the History of Sugarcraft in our lifetime.  

 

I started cake decorating in 1995, learning from books and from attending British Sugarcraft Guild meetings with all the fabulous demonstrators, so my wish, is to share information about those that made it possible of the UK to create the cakes that we make today.

 

This Blog was created to share a little of that history along with blogposts with a little info about what is happening lately in the world of cake too.

 

So I hope we will see you here again
