- 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.

Merry Christmas one and all! I know things have been a little quiet on the blog front lately...I haven't had any cakes to do, and thanks to a string of minor health problems I didn't get around to doing the flower-making practise I had planned. At least my toe is getting better now, and I'm just about over a fairly nasty cold, so hopefully once the Christmas "silly season" is over I can get back into it. Have a wonderful Christmas Day, and best wishes for 2010.
