Diane is from the Northumberland UK, like many of us she changed career when she caught the ‘cake decorating’ bug after making her sons birthday cake. She now has a fully registered and insured kitchen and is looking forward to this new venture!
Hi, I’m Diane, owner of Dinkys Cakes based in Northumberland, UK.
I married my childhood sweetheart Mark in 2004 and am now mother to Lauryn and Zach and of course my fur baby Nala.
I qualified as a nurse in 2001 and worked on a busy city centre itu for 17 years before finally taking the plunge and focusing on my passion for cake decorating full time. My cake decorating obsession started when I decided to make a cake for my sons 2nd birthday.
I’d never made a cake before but thought a 3D carved Thomas the tank engine would be a good place to start (maybe not my best idea). But I caught the bug and have never looked back since. I work from a fully registered and insured home kitchen and love every minute of being at home and being my own boss.
I’m passionate about providing a quality service and high end product. I have gained so much from my cake mentors over the years and would love to help others learn a new skill.
I am so excited to be working alongside Cake Dutchess as an accredited instructor and can’t wait to get started on my new journey into teaching!
