About Me

I’m a Speech Therapist and Educational Psychologist mum from Barcelona who felt completely lost when arrived in London early 2012. My English wasn’t good enough to keep developing my profession in England but I really wanted to start working and be immersed in that awesome language that I wished to learn so much. 

I loved home baking and decorating, actually that’s what I was making in my free time -specially in dark and cold days-, so I thought that it could be a great idea to try and work in the cake world. That was the reason this site was born: I needed someone to give me an opportunity in that field without having previous experience, and the only way was showing my enthusiasm and motivation for baking through my blog. 

Soon after I got a job in a famous cupcake bakery in London, where all my decorating experience began. I kept learning and improving my decorating skills through those years in other bakeries, specially in the lovely cake shop I was working before having my child, where everything made was bespoke and lovingly detailed. 

I can’t thank enough for what London has given me so far, specially the opportunity to also become a passionate cake designer! I could never have done it without being here!

Hope you get inspired by my creations! :)
