When I was designing my blog, earlier this year, I had a clear vision for what I wanted it to be: I wanted to be able to bring people down the rabbit hole into the crazy place that is the cake world.
For those of us who make cakes, the cake world can be a bit of a lonely place – you spend a lot of your time alone, working in your kitchen, your cake room or maybe a commercial workshop, so the friendships and relationships that we form with an amazing network of caker friends are so important. Although we we predominantly communicate online, through Facebook groups and websites likes cakesdecor.com and only see each other a few times a year at various shows and events, we are constantly in each other’s lives, cheering each other on and supporting everyone’s endeavours.
I wanted to be able to share this part of the cake world with you all too and so what better way to do that than interviewing some of the amazing cake artists that I am lucky enough to call my friends?
At the top of the page, you will notice that a new tab has appeared: Interviews. And this is where I hope to be able to introduce you to Just some of the amazing people I have been lucky enough to meet on my caking journey.
To get us started, I sat down with the lovely Northern Ireland-based Cake Artist, Emma Stewart of Truly Scrumptious Cakes by Design, to talk beautiful wedding cakes, Snow White: The Grimm Obsession (her fabulous exhibit at November’s Cake International) and The Cake Retreat – her next big endeavour.
*whispers* And if you scroll to the bottom of the piece, you can also find a discount code to receive a MASSIVE 20% off The Cake Retreat – a saving of £250!
I hope you enjoy reading my first interview and I look forward to bringing you more in the future.
