Yarra Junction, The Yarra Valley
Emily lives in Yarra Junction with her husband and two little kids. She owns a home business making designer cakes and cupcakes, and also has a part-time “real” job in banking. So between baking, banking and raising kids, she is always busy!
Like so many others in her industry, she discovered cake decorating when her daughter turned one, and she made her a princess castle cake extravaganza with twelve turrets that was taller than she was. When her best friend got married a few months later she offered to make her cake as a wedding present.
Well, it turned out way better than anyone expected, and with that, Emily’s business was born.
At school Emily studied art and fashion, and she finds cake design is the perfect medium to bring these together. She loves drawing inspiration from different elements of a wedding – colours, ruffles, lace, flowers, invitations – and then merging all of these into an edible work of art.
There is so much Emily loves about her job! She loves that her house always smells like sugar. That every cake is a completely different style or character to explore. The feeling of satisfaction when she steps back to admire what she has created.
But the absolute best thing Emily says she loves is seeing other people’s reactions when they see their cake for the first time.
Another cake artist whom Emily admires says she is not in the business of making cakes, she is in the business of making people happy. It is so true, and so fun to be asked to be involved in other people’s milestone events.
