So here is a little backstory on my caking adventures. Fancy Cakes by Linda was setup in 2009 by my mum Linda and me (Ceri). After years of making celebration cakes for friends and family we decided to take the plunge and run our own business. For 5 years we sold and made cakes in our local area of Hertfordshire, England. We held classes for cake making and sugar flowers for people new to the craft but also for other cake makers that wanted to advance their skills. We entered many competitions and we were both delighted to be awarded Gold on several occasions for our cake designs. It was during these 5 years that I (Ceri), was invited by the biggest plastic manufacturing company of cake supplies in the UK to design cake cutters. This was a fantastic opportunity that I did not want to miss. Initially I continued both roles but as my cutter designs gained popularity, my workload increased. So a new and exciting chapter began for both of us. My mum Linda continued to make cake orders for existing and new customers through a company of her own and I started my new cake journey. My sole role became designing cutters for FMM Sugarcraft Ltd. My first design was the FMM Fluffy Clouds. They remain my favourite cutter design to date. Alongside my design work I demonstrated the products, appeared on craft TV channels and made online tutorials for other people to learn not only about my products, but also how to use them. My designs are simple but effective. I want everyone to be able to make a cake and make it look great! There is something very special about making cakes for people. Your mind races with designs and when you have the chance to put that design together and make someone very happy with your creation it makes the time and effort worthwhile. Cake making can be very addictive! I love teaching people and this part I miss so I have decided to focus on my YouTube channel www.youtube.com/fancycakesbylinda. YouTube is a wonderful place to learn so many new skills. I have something on my channel for everyone. Cake Toppers, Children's Cakes, Painting on Cakes, Sugar Flowers, Ruffles and more. I am uploading new tutorials regularly. You can be kept up to date with new tutorials by subscribing to my channel. It's completely free and this will never change. I love to share! My website www.fancycakesbylinda.co.uk is now my blog. It is a combination of my tutorials and my cake adventures. Thank you for joining me and let's get caking!
