About Glitter & Sparkle Cakes
I started my cake business in June 2011 by accident really! My curiosity in cake decorating came about after being asked to make a retirement cake for someone. Having never covered a cake with fondant before I muddled my way through and came up with a creation, but I was left wanting to know more. I didn't work so I had time to research. I attended a class and learnt the basics of how to cover a cake and I took it from there.
Since leaving university I'd been sat behind a desk, but suddenly I discovered my creative side. My love for colour, pattern, flowers and texture was soon being used as inspiration for cake designs.
My business has grown through hard work, but mostly I have my wonderful customers to thank. Not only do they come back to me time after time for their special cakes, but they also recommend me to their friends and family. In 2016 my dream of having a shop finally came true. I now have a small retail unit in a fabulous location. Based in the Creative Corner in Chilwell, Nottingham my shop is a perfect fit with the other small independent creative businesses. You can pop in during opening hours and see the latest creation that I'm working on. There's a small area with cakes on display and I also stock some basic cake decorating supplies for the local hobbyists in the area. I hold wedding consultations in the shop too and customers come in to make enquiries and book their next special celebration cake.
