My name is Susan Stevenson and I have been an avid baker for years. Five years ago I turned this hobby into a home based business called Blossom Cakes and Bakes.
My motivation is to combine the taste and comfort that you only get with home baking with original designs to provide high quality celebration cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes, biscuits and tray bakes.
Creatively, my inspiration is to put a smile on people's faces with delicious and great looking treats.
I set up my cupcake decorating workshops three years ago after realising there was a market for teaching cake decorating skills following the rise in popularity of baking and cake decorating fuelled by programmes like The Great British Bake Off. I run these from my spacious kitchen at home in Hitchin as well as other venues and running children’s cupcake decorating parties. Recently I have started running decorating classes for North Herts College.
My plan going forward is to develop the cake decorating business and find more ways of sharing my cake skills so that others get the great sense of achievement from being creative with cake!
My kitchen has been registered by the North Herts Environmental Health Office and I have successfully completed a programme of training and assessment and have been awarded a certificate in Food Safety in Catering.
