(The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the soul… (Dieter Uctdorf)
Since I can remember, I have always had a curiosity and interest to bake or make something in the kitchen. After completing my hospitality degree I ventured into some of South Africa’s finest game lodges where I spent the next 11 years of my life managing these game lodges. I assisted the kitchens with desserts and the odd birthday cake needed and soon realized that I really do enjoy the creative side of the baking industry. In 2009 I returned to the city and a few years later I enrolled for a Diploma in Wedding Cake Decoration with SA Weddings. Soon after Creative Hands Cakes was born…
I have been baking part time for a few years but in 2018 and 2019 I scaled down completely due to my work commitments. I was managing a hospitality supply business during working hours and after hours I worked on my online store supplying cake decorating tools and equipment to all the other bakers and cake artists in South Africa.
End of 2019 I resigned from my position at the hospitality supply business and decided to focus all my time from 2020 onwards on my own businesses and get back into the creative world of beautiful cakes.
And here I am… super excited to share the road ahead with you.
