How did you get started in the baking world? What was it that lit the spark?
I started making cakes for my kids birthdays and realised how creative it was. Then I just couldn’t get enough of Pinterest, looking at every cake style and idea there was!
How did Cas' Cakery the business get started?
When I first started making cakes for friends and family, I was reported to the council for not having the right licenses. The council encouraged me to make a go for it so on the 14th of April 2018 I registered and launched Cas' Cakery and have never looked back.
What’s your favourite thing about being 'Cas' Cakery'?
Interacting with the beautiful people within the industry that have the same passion for cake decorating as myself. But, teaching classes is my absolute favourite part. I’m incredibly passionate about sharing my skills with others.
What’s your favourite baking hack?
When colouring anything it's important to remember that adding colour is like adding salt, you can't take it out once it's in there. It's always better to start off with just a few drops of colouring, mixing it in and assessing if you want to keep adding more to deepen the colour.
What's your favourite thing about using Colour Mill in your cake decorating?
I love the Colour Mill pigments! You can create such dreamy palettes with even just two colours. They mix so well into buttercream and the colour range is just phenomenal.
What’s your favourite thing to do with Colour Mill?
I love piping cupcakes but I equally love decorating cakes and being able to add multiple layers of colour and texture to my bakes without the colours bleeding into each other.
Tell us a little bit about why you picked the 12 colours in your pack?
My top 12 is essentially me in a pack! They're all of my most used tones and you could easily pick any 3 of the pigments in the pack and they’d all work together cohesively.
