- 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.

I made these two cakes for a former co-worker the week before last, for her mother's 70th birthday and her baby boy's naming ceremony. They were both done for the same day, and with less than a week's notice, so the designs are very simple... both feature the quick fondant rosebuds that Marilyn showed us in class a few weeks ago.
