Wife and mother to 3 children. Our 2 daughters are adults and have moved out of home.
I am a wedding and novelty cake decorator working from my registered home in Geelong Vic. I bake all my cakes from scratch and decorate them with lots of love and care for your special day.
I ask for a 50% deposit to secure a booking with the balance due on delivery or one week prior for wedding cakes.
The 50% deposit is non refundable and should be paid within two weeks (less if the order is short notice) as paying customers will get booking priority.
Making cakes for money was never a dream of mine. In fact I thought I was going to be a mathematics teacher. When my first child started kindergarten I began a six year long part time bachelor of science degree. When my degree was complete I got a job as a computer programmer and thought life would be great until I realised the job wasn't right for me and resigned. I spent a couple of years tutoring mathematics and computer science at Deakin University and then moved on to retail and cleaning to have a more secure income.
But something that has always been a constant in my life is the love of arts and crafts. I could never sit and do nothing or even read a book. I always had to be making something. I would knit, sew, cross stitch. I made quilts and beaded jewellery, anything to keep me busy.
I wasn't even much of a baker but I always made birthday cakes for my family and had a keen interest in cake decorating since I was a teenager. My first fondant covered cake was a fruit cake for Christmas in 1984 when I was 16. By the time my daughters turned 21 I was making pretty good tiered cakes and was asked to make my first wedding cake. I decided to gather up some photos of cakes I'd made over the years and put them on a facebook page and all of a sudden I was in business.
