Blog – Welcome to my new blog!

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!!         lick the bowlI 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!      roller-coaster

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.    sealedlips

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.     2013-CAKE-International-A4-Logo_NEW+strap_MR

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.   no-cameras-allowed-signSorry, has to stay under wraps for now.

Well, that’s all for now, stay tuned for more blog posts and happy baking.
