Rosie Cake-Diva – a one woman phenomenon…

What do you get if you cross a trained architect, a helicopter pilot, a multi award-winning cake-making genius and a much-sought-after television presenter?


Well if you answered anything other than Rosie Dummer, then I have to ask: where have you been? The chances are, if you haven’t heard Rosie’s name before, then you will at least know her by her caking alter-ego, Rosie Cake Diva.

A staple at many of the country’s cake, baking and food festivals, she is probably as well known for her inimitable presenting as she is her show-stopping cakes. In fact, with a 2017 presenting roster that included both of the Cake International spring shows, the Bolton Food Festival, the London and Manchester Cake & Bake Shows, the Kirkcudbright Food Festival, Eat Drink Fest, Cake International: The World’s Largest Cake Show, The Cake Masters Magazine Awards, a weekly cake and bake show on The Craft Channel and, of course, her own show on BBC Radio Lancashire, it might be fair to say that in some circles, people forget that first and foremost, Rosie is one of the brightest stars of the UK cake industry.

Thankfully her return to the latest series of Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Makers will soon put pay to that and I thought it was time for the rest of the world to meet the lady behind the microphone
