Buttercups 'The Cake Shop'
That's right, A CAKE SHOP! If you've noticed lately that there's not much in the online shop that's because we've been working hard on current orders and making plans for our new shop. Eeeeek we are so excited, we should be open at our new premises in West Mersea in just a few weeks so watch this space and keep an eye out for the opening day announcement.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
A special thank you to my beautiful Emily...
Around 12 years ago, while on maternity leave, my eldest daughter, then a toddler, came to me with a shiny new playdough set demanding all sorts of models from flowers to farmyard animals but mainly Peppa Pig. Anyway, it turned out I wasn't too bad at modelling the dough plus I quite enjoyed the challenge of making the different figures. So with family birthdays coming up I moved on to fondant icing, hijacked any cake requests and combined with my experience and knowledge as a chef my fledgling career as a Cake Decorator had begun.
Since then I have learned a great deal, both self taught and having gone back to college.
