My Studio...

Emily's pretty studio is based in the centre of the city of Truro, Cornwall in Princes House, a beautiful Georgian mansion house which is also home to many other creative businesses, most with roots in the wedding industry. Her kitchen is a sanctuary to all things cake and is where she bakes and creates all of her masterpieces. Emily is busy working away in her studio most days however design consultations and cake tastings are by appointment only. 

"I love nothing better than inviting clients into my creative space to chat about their wedding ideas over tea and cake! Any excuse to get the teapot out!"



Emily is also one of 12 cake artists chosen from all over the world to feature in Squires Kitchen’s newly published ‘Designer Cake Decorating’ book from B.Dutton Publishing. The book is an up to date step by step cake decorating bible covering everything from how to cover flawless cakes to modern royal icing, hand painting and sugar flower techniques. You can have a little look inside here.

Emily's cakes have been featured in a number of national and international magazines and blogs. Emily regularly writes step by step tutorials for 'Cakes and Sugarcraft Magazine' and 'Wedding Cakes Magazine', creating individual projects for weddings and special occasions and giving inside tips on how she creates her hand painted masterpieces. Both magazines are widely available in shops and online.
