Welcome to the Business of Baking

I’m Michelle. I’m a cake decorator, chef, writer, business mentor and Mom…and I have no idea how I do it all (hint: I don’t, sometimes I suck at getting stuff done.)

This site was created for people who want to make a living doing what they love – and what they love is baking, decorating and creating sweet art.

Here, you’ll find education and inspiration to help you live a better life and run a better business. In my recipe for success, I include a dash of humour and pinch of real life – I’m a very real, no bullshit person.

I started my business on my kitchen table, so I know what it’s like to go to bed at 3am and hope that magical fairies will clean the kitchen for you while you sleep.

Thanks for being here.
