Meet Hannah, an award-winning cake artist specialising in luxurious and elegant wedding cakes.

It all started when my mother gave me The Dairy Book of Baking for my 13th birthday, with the expectation I would bake a Victoria sponge every Saturday ready for Sunday afternoon tea. I duly obliged and with practice my Victoria sponges had the lightest texture and were full of flavour.


I worked my way through the book trying out different recipes, and started decorating my family’s birthday cakes.

I trained as a nurse and when my children were of school age I trained as a Montessori teacher. In my spare time I would bake cakes and my decorating skills improved over the years; I have had lots of practice with three children! When a colleague who had enjoyed my cakes over the years asked me to bake & decorate her daughter's 21st birthday cake, my immediate reaction was to say “No, I am not good enough!” But Liz persuaded me, believing I could create the beautifully decorated cake that she required. She was delighted with the result and so was I! 

I used to say, “One day I will have a cake decorating business!” In 2017, that day came. I have loved every moment since then - making a cake for a special occasion is such a privilege. I love creating elegant, romantic cakes that are rich in texture with hand crafted sugar flowers. I also love experimenting with cake flavours, I was pleased when my carrot cake made it into the national top ten at The Cake Professionals Baker of the Year Competition in 2020.

I continually strive to improve my skills. In 2019 I enrolled onto a City & Guilds Cake Decorating Level 2 course. I was delighted when I qualified with distinction across all five categories.

For me, a cake has to look and taste amazing.   It is so rewarding when clients are delighted with the look of a cake and then later tell me how delicious it tasted. I pay close attention to detail, use quality ingredients and create a unique design for each cake.  


When I am not in my studio creating delicious cakes, you can find me in the garden, or walking in the beautiful countryside on our doorstep with our dog Oscar and my husband. I love spending time with my grown-up children and traveling gathering inspiration for the next cake.
