We recently ran a competition on our More Than Mummies Facebook page for mums who make children’s cakes. Although we had many entries, no two cakes were at all alike. The winners were decided by votes and there was a prize for both the winner and the runner up. In the end it was a really close finish!
As well as some lovely goodies, part of the prize was a feature about the winner.
The winner was Michelle from Michelle’s Cakes with this fantastic R2D2 cake!
Here’s a little bit more about Michelle’s Cakes…
I started making and decorating cakes about 18 months ago and I’m completely self taught. We had lots of eggs from our new pet chickens and after I stopped smoking, I found myself getting peace from this new found hobby! I started doing cakes for everybody and whenever there was an occasion or celebration, I made a cake!
Then in August last year I shared some photos with my friends on Facebook and they encouraged me to set up my own page. I did this with no great confidence really but before I knew it people were asking if I could make a cake for them too. I wasn’t really sure I was up to the challenge but I thought I would have a go! Consequently I have spent the last 12 months building a portfolio of pictures up and covering my cost etc.
Since hearing about the More Than Mummies cake competition, entering and winning (!) things have just gone from busy to overwhelming and I now have the confidence to go out there and make anything for anyone!
I really love what I do and I feel so blessed I have discovered my hidden talent. I’m very grateful to everyone who has supported me and given me the chance to make them a cake! I am very much so looking forward to what the future holds for Michelle’s Cakes!
“Homemade cakes made with good quality ingredients including fresh free range eggs from our own pet hens, giving a beautiful rich flavour & a fantastic deep yellow coloured sponge. Each cake is personally made & unique to your requests!”
