Meet The Team
Meet The Cake Collegers! All of our cake decorating tutors are renowned bakers and cake decorators, who have many years of professional cake decorating experience, and who have won awards including Gold and Silver awards at Cake International. And (we think even more importantly), they are all lovely and will help you feel at ease, even if you’ve not got any cake decorating experience whatsoever.
Our aim at The Cake College is always to have fun and to teach new skills in a relaxed setting, and everybody that works here helps us achieve that aim.
Stephenie has been baking since she was just 6 years old, when her mum needed to give her something to do in the hope that it might keep her quiet.
As a mother of four fully grown humans and one cheeky dog, Steph loves being busy and helping out. When not working at The Cake College or being pulled along by Gus the unruly pup, she can be found appreciating art and interior design. She loves a decorating project and getting her hands dirty in the garden.
Having spent the last 20 years of her professional life working in education, spending time working at The Cake College is a dream that combines her three great passions (education, design and cake) with having a bit of a natter.
Clare lives in South Oxfordshire where she creates bespoke wedding cakes and desert tables for her clients. Her style reflects her passion for art, design and colour, focussing on bold and contemporary cakes fused with pretty and natural touches. She particularly loves creating extravagant dessert tables which often require plenty of macaron taste testing! When she’s not working on a cake, Clare can often be found growing ingredients and edible flowers on her allotment or making gingerbread men with her daughter. To see more of Clare’s work, visit her website.
Emma loves baking and cooking and recently gave up her ironing business of 20 years after coming to a class at The Cake College and falling in love with it (well, who can blame her?).
She loves animals, particularly cats and dogs and has an 18 year old British Shorthair cat called Myrtle. She also has a soft spot for the resident Cake College chickens and ducks! She enjoys gardening and growing things from seed, and when not doing this she can be found crafting, eating cake and drinking coffee.
Jenni is our Berkshire girl who has a passion for art and discovered her love of baking after becoming a mum. Jenni loves creating original designs by trying new techniques and ideas for her edible art. Her enthusiasm for all things cake shows in her dream wedding cakes and bespoke novelty work. When she isn’t decorating a new creation, Jenni enjoys reading a good book and having family adventures.
