Putty Cakes Q&A
What inspired you to start your own business?
I have always wanted to own my own cake shop. At school my careers adviser told me that I should become a chef. I followed that path and was Head Chef for many years. I was still making birthday cakes for friends, family and residents in the home.
In 2012, I entered Cake International with a handbag cake and was awarded a bronze. The feedback I got from the judges was that the board I used was too small and I didn't cover the board. The cake itself was worthy of a Gold!! I was hooked.I entered the competition a few more times and now have 14 International awards 4 of which are Golds.
I saw that my local cake shop was not utilizing the kitchen facilities so I asked if I could rent it. They agreed and a year later I managed to buy the shop from them. I love it! I am living my dream :)
