Hello, and welcome to my blog!
First let me introduce myself.
My name is Julie Rogerson and I live in Beverley, East Yorkshire, UK
I share my home with my partner Mark, my 3 teenage children (Andrew 18, Rachel 16 and Jack 14) and my springer spaniel Sandy.
I have always loved to bake! I started out as a child, helping my mum in the kitchen, going on to share my interest with my own children. Although to be fair I think they were more interested in licking out the bowl!! I discovered my passion for cake decorating around 4 years ago, took a 5 week evening course, watched a lot of online tutorials, had a play with some sugar paste and the rest is history (as they say!).
I now run my business, Julie’s Cake in a Box, currently fitting it around my day job as a Nursery Nurse at a local primary school, although I would love to do this as a full time job!
The purpose for my blog is to share my cake decorating information, news, tips etc with you all. I hope to be able to share lots of experiences along the way. Hold on tight, it could be fun ride!
Please take a look at my website, checking back to see my newer cakes, as I will update my galleries on a regular basis.
You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter (links are on the home page of my website).
As well as my new website and blog, I have lots more exciting opportunities on the horizon! I can’t wait to share them all with you, but unfortunately my lips are sealed at the moment.
One thing I can tell you about is that I am entering a competition piece into the Cake International exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham.
For those who haven’t heard of, or been to Cake International, it is a huge event in the Cake Decorator’s calendar. Although I have attended the event for the past two years, this will be the first time I have been brave enough (or stupid enough) to enter! Yikes!! Feeling a little nervous but excited too. I have spent the summer holidays creating my entry, but cannot share any photographs until the exhibition opens in November. Sorry, has to stay under wraps for now.
Well, that’s all for now, stay tuned for more blog posts and happy baking.
