Newcastle, NSW, Australia
I’m a former industrial chemist, and after deciding on a career change while at home with my two young children, I’m now a qualified pastry chef. In 2009 I started taking some classes in cake decorating and other pastry-related cookery, and taught myself many more decorating techniques from books and internet resources. In 2010 I started a pastry apprenticeship, studying Retail Baking (Cake & Pastry) Certificate III at TAFE, which I completed with Distinction in 2012. I completed my apprenticeship in December 2013, and am now working as a full time Pastry chef and Cake Decorator at 'Exquisite Cakes by Lennert' in Cessnock, NSW.

The Verdict... YUMMY!!!

I can now happily report that Cameron’s cake tastes as good as it looked. The birthday boy, his Nanna and Pa, Aunty Shell, Grandma and I all enjoyed a slice this afternoon. Unfortunately Daddy was at work and a bit bummed about missing the cutting, but he’d said I might as well do it while the family were all here. I must admit, I did have a brief “NOOO!!! I spent so much time on this, I don’t want to cut it!” moment, but I guess you wouldn’t get far as a cake decorator if you couldn't handle having your creations carved up. I wonder, is that what they mean by "you can't have your cake and eat it too" ???
