Welcome to The Blog
Hi! I’m Tasha. Owner of Glitter & Sparkle Cakes. I’ve been lucky enough to run my business from the start as a full-time job. Repeat customers and recommendations have kept me busy, busy, busy for the last 7 years and for this I am truly grateful. I’ve wanted to start a blog for ages but not had time to do it properly, so I thought I’d use my first post to introduce myself and explain briefly how I’ve got to where I am now and where I’d like to go from here…and invite you to come with me too if you fancy it.
Since 2011 I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working for my clients, creating their dream cakes. From extravagant multi-tiered wedding cakes to individual cupcakes, I’ve been honoured to be part of their special celebration. In 2016, my dream came true and I opened a shop. The next 2 years were a complete whirlwind of joy, tears, happiness, emotion and physical exhaustion. I guess you could call it “a victim of its own success”. I couldn’t sustain that amount of work on my own and I wanted to see my family a bit more, so when I had the opportunity, I decided to bring my business back to my kitchen and studio at home.
Back to the present day and it’s June 2018. I’m lucky enough again to have cakes booked in throughout the rest of the year and wedding cakes into 2019 and I’m very much looking forward to doing these for you. So, for now, I’m not taking any more orders. But stick with me if you can. In doing this, I can explore all the things I’ve wanted to but just not had time. I’ve got lots of things to share with you. From recipes to cake decorating tips. Product reviews to choosing your special cake. I’ve also been lucky enough to work with lots of other independent creative suppliers and venues and I’d love to share their ideas with you. I want to help, whether you’re the client or the cake maker…and there’s bound to be the odd competition and cake give away here and there.
So, what do you say? Will you join me? It’ll be such fun!
