introducing Mary Whitehouse

Aristocakes Mary Whitehouse

Sweet baking, especially cakes, have been my passion since a child. I could never resist decorating an apple pie with pastry roses or a plain cake with icing. Fruit flans became works of art and the annual Christmas and family birthday cakes ever more elaborate!

For many years I indulged my passion around a full time occupation, but since 1996 the passion has been taking over and is now my work. During this time I have made literally hundreds of cakes, ranging from the intricate to the very simple.

I have a Cordon Bleu cookery qualification from the London Cordon Bleu School and have done numerous courses in the art of decoration, although, like most cake artists, I am predominently 'self taught'. My first wedding cake was a commission whilst at university - I am an engineer which is often especially useful when constructing the sculpted cakes!

I have a specialised baking kitchen and am always trying out new recipes and techniques. I love a challenge so docontact me to discuss a masterpiece for your next celebration.
