Hi there! I'm Lisa; chief baker, cake maker and decorator at Confection of Affection. I am an East Midlands girl born and bred, originally from Derbyshire and now living in Nottingham. I started baking for fun about eight years ago as a way of relieving stress during my time as a science teacher. Over the years I've made cakes for family and friends, gradually improving my skill set and building confidence - prior to this I didn't even know I had a creative side! I have been on a numerous courses to gain more skills and fallen in love with creating beautiful cakes. After lots of encouragement, I decided to follow my heart and dreams and go into business in April 2018 - so here I am, ready to help you all achieve your perfect wedding cakes!
So, before cake making, I was a science teacher at a Nottinghamshire secondary school for eight years, and I still tutor students now. When I'm not baking I love spending time reading (I like a good fantasy book - I'm a bit of a geek!), doing yoga and spending time with my long suffering boyfriend and our two dogs - Albert and Newton (guess who they are named after?! I told you I was a geek!)
Cakes can be a treat for any occasion; but more often for those milestones in life - weddings, birthdays, anniversaries. What I love more than anything is talking to people; (preferably over coffee and cake!) about their story as this often helps in the creating of a truly unique cake to help and bring to life a vision for their wedding cakes or celebration cakes such as birthday cakes, christening cakes, anniversary cakes or cakes for any other special occasion.
So, if you have a special occasion on the horizon and want a scrumptious, beautiful cake designed especially for you, made with love, please contact me and arrange a consultation, I'd love to hear your story.
