Hi, I am Christine. Baker, designer, decorator, creator, dreamer, doer and teacher here at Trendy Cakes. I started baking when I became a stay-at-home-mummy to our two little boys and had my first paid order in 2013.
I quickly discovered that I had a real knack for baking and that I loved exploring new recipes and techniques to get that perfect result for every bake. I operated as Trendy Cakes until May 2019. In that time, the business outgrew my capacity and the capacity of my kitchen. Even with a casual employee coming in weekly, I still had to work late into the night to get everything done.
Early in 2019 I started suffering from emotional and creative burnout. As a wife and mum, that is not something that has a place in my life. I made the very emotional decision to stop taking orders and look for something that will allow me more time with my family (you can read about that decision here).
So I set up a new business, Knowledge Insight – building websites for other creative souls. I didn’t want to give up everything I built over the last 5 and a half years though. That is why Trendy Cakes is still around. I may not be taking orders anymore, but now I can help you discover (or re-discover) your own creative self through baking.
Go grab a cuppa, an apron and heat up your oven. Let’s start baking sister!
