Amy is a mum of 3 and is passionate about weddings and everything cake. She is a keen horsewoman in her spare time and loves the outdoors and having fun time with her family. Her granny Mabel taught her to bake when she was a young bud of a child, baking every week there was always something yummy going on in Smith Road. It wasn't till years later after having a charity event Amy baked some cupcakes for it that and her passion for baking was reignited, she had found the love of baking again. Having worked in the wedding industry before styling brides hair for their day she knew that there was a good niche in the market for making wedding cakes as the industry is always booming. Amy took the leap of faith giving up her hair salon to make cakes full time and hasn't looked back. She is always attending the wedding exhibitions in the area even winning an award at the last one for runner up for her stand which she proudly displays in her living room. She is also featured regularly in the Scottish wedding magazines with her work. Known in the north east for her fine attention to detail Amy makes delicate and elegant wedding cakes making roses that ultimately look so life like it is hard to tell they are sugar paste. She loves nothing better than a pretty vintage cake which she says is very much her forte but has also been known to make a Banksy inspired cake too. She is always eager to make each cake as different as possible but is happy to put her own spin on a cake that the bride may already like. Always researching for new ideas Amy finds taking inspiration from the brides dress, shoes, invites, veil anything really as she says 'inspiration is always there as far as the eye can see' it is the most exciting part and also the biggest part of making a truly magnificent cake. Amy has a 5 year plan set out, so far she has achieved 2 of her goals and her 3rd and final would be to have a small wedding cake boutique which she is slowly aiming for.
