About

I’m a mum of 2 girls. With Mr CakeStories we live in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. We are surrounded by woodlands and the Moors by the canal..great for family walks and muddy puddle jumping.
I love what I do!! I haven’t always done this but feel so lucky to have found a job that makes me very happy! I have a degree in Politics and a postgraduate qualification in Primary Teaching. I’ve worked in Recruitment and trained as a teacher.
Apart from baking and cake decorating, I enjoy Spinning, zumba, fine wine and food, reading, and all things France!
I love creating bespoke, individual and sometimes a little bit quirky cupcakes and cakes. Here are some below – but for the full range of cakes have a look at my Facebook page – alot of the cakes I make start life as a muse in my customers imagination, so you will decide what I make next……………………

At weekends and sometimes after school I become Betsy Buttercream and deliver Cupcake Parties with lots of cupcake fun and yummy results. I love working with Children and this is a great way of combining my love of all things cupcakes whilst at the same time creating everlasting party fun memories. See the Cupcake Parties tab for more info x

If you are looking for a fab start to a Hen – Do celebration a Cake Class is a brilliant way to introduce everyone and start your special celebration.

    Yummy place that i have landed! I am in love with your blog! It took a little work to get here (I had to cut and paste your address and then add worpress.com to get here)
    though… it looks as if you have a lot of followers…you probaby would have more.
    I just wanted to point out that your link is not connected to your gravatar. Just your facebook page is… This is such a great blog…you might want to link it to your gravatar in order to get more traffic.
