We help our members achieve their cake goals

hello, I'm Zoë!

I am a passionate baker, celebrated cake artist, businesswoman and mum to two tweenies.

Within the cake industry I am best known for my 'Extreme' cake sculptures and have even popped up on TV making them! Voted one of the UK's Top 10 Cake Artists, I am also a cake tutor, teacher and writer and have long enjoyed sharing my passion for cake with students.

Back in 2011, I sold a multi million $ business and have since gone on to apply that business experience to my cake life. I love cake, I love cake people and I love cake businesses. And I may be biased (!) but our cake school is home to like minded people and is a genuine oasis of creative and practical tuition. Our members make the school what it is, and for that I am very proud.

Our goal at the Academy is to help others achieve their cake aspirations, whether it be improving baking skills, learning sugar craft techniques or developing their cake businesses. We will guide and support you - to help save time, avoid costly mistakes and to learn at a pace that suits YOU. Our friendly community and awesome school will help you step by step with your journey, whatever your cake goals.

Because it is not really just about cake. It is about using cake to improve your life.
