I’VE always been interested in cakes and baking, I’ve got the biggest sweet tooth.
I remember as a young girl making queen cakes with my aunt Rose in my nana’s house. Both my grandmothers would have been bakers and there was always some sort of cake or soda loaf in the oven
It was my granny that taught me how to make a Christmas cake, it became a tradition to make and decorate the Christmas cake together. It is still her recipe I pull out every year to make my Christmas cake.
Training as a chef, I was always pulled towards the dessert/pastry side of the kitchen and loved to make cakes. I used everyone’s birthdays to try out new cake recipes and designs.
I opened Gingerbread House this year in Midleton and am absolutely delighted that to have opened my own place, I love talking cake all day, every day with customers.
