Hi, I’m Victoria and i am the cake designer and cake baker for "Cakes by Victoria ltd"
I run ‘Cakes by Victoria Ltd’ from my house in Hedge End.
Whilst I had always loved baking, I suddenly found this very tricky when my oldest child was diagnosed with milk and egg allergies at 6 months old.
As she approached her 5th birthday, I decided to enrol in a sugar-craft course at a local college so that I could give her a cake at her party, as there were no supermarket ones she could eat.
The brief from the nearly-5-year-old at the time was ‘unicorns, rainbows and pink’! She was thrilled with it – and for my first decorated cake, I thought it was a triumph! (See picture below)
I’m pleased to say that my skills have evolved since then!
Following this, increasing numbers of friends asked me to make cakes for them, and in the August of that year I took the plunge, registered with the council and became a business.
