Kayleigh is a talented cake decorator and teacher and runs ‘Sassa’s Cakes’ together with her mum! What a team! Early 2018 they opened up their new stunning showroom and work area and looking forward welcoming you soon!
My cake journey began in 2011 shortly after my second child was born. I wanted to be able to stay at home with my new baby whilst finding a job that made the most of my artistic side and love of baking. My Mum had started her cake business, Sassa’s, a year before and I decided to join her making cake pops and biscuits.
Over time as my skills became more diverse and the popularity of our cakes grew I took on the birthday and celebration cake side of the business. Modelling characters was something I was always a little scared of doing until I tried Cake Dutchess modelling paste. My confidence has grown greatly and now I’m thrilled when I receive an order with a character model involved.
I want to help others who may have that fear of 3D characters to find that actually, it can be a really enjoyable experience with the right materials and techniques.
Sassa’s Cakes has grown over the last 8 years and in early 2018 we opened a showroom and work area. I’m hoping this space will provide a great learning environment for beginners and more experienced modellers alike.
I’m very excited to start teaching as a Cake Dutchess instructor – keep a lookout for class dates coming soon!
