My name is Agnes. Thank you so much for dropping by!
My adventure with cake decorating started in 2012. I was living in Poland back then. After watching one of the episodes of Buddy Valastro’s ‘Cake Boss’ I have decided to make my first cake. I had so much fun making it!
(Ok, let’s face it – the cake wasn’t perfect. In fact I can’t stop laughing when I look at the photo! But at that time I was so happy with how it turned out!)
I wanted to learn more about cake decorating. Thanks to widely available tutorials next cakes turned out much better.
Cake decorating was a pleasant getaway from the unfulfilling corporate job that I had back then. The news about me making cakes spread around my family and friends instantly. It didn’t take me long to realise that decorating cakes is what I want to do in life.
One day I bumped into Tony Robbins’ book “Unleash the Power Within”. I read it and I felt totally inspired about changing my life. I knew exactly what I needed to do to be happy.
I quit my office job and became a full-time cake decorator. I didn’t have enough money to set up my own cake business (the food law in Poland is very strict – you can’t run a cake business at home), but I thought I’ll try to find a job as a cake decorator. I sent my portfolio to a few places and a few weeks later I was working as a cake decorator in one of the cake shops in Warsaw!
After about a year my boyfriend and I had made some plans for our future. We always wanted to live abroad. London seemed to be the best place for us – a big city, with lots of opportunities… When I look at it now – moving to London it was the best decision in my life! Shortly after moving I got a job as a cake decorator in one of the best cake shops in London. It’s amazing how many things I have learned there! Crazy! I will be grateful for that always!
So believe in your dreams. Make bold decisions. Make mistakes. Learn from them. Never stop searching for what makes you happy. Focus on your goal. Work hard. And the results will come. And you’ll be so proud of yourself! :)
I created this website for people who love cake decorating and who’d like to learn more about sugar modelling. I hope you’ll enjoy the tutorials!
