Let Me Introduce Myself
This is me — Yvette — the face behind Enchanted Cakes By Yvette.
Enchanted Cakes By Yvette was established in 2016, but my love for all kinds of enchanting sweets and cake decorating started long before then.
Even as a young primary school student, I was constantly testing my creative boundaries in the kitchen. Whipping up something for my family whether they were willing participants or not and inventing all sorts of creations. My interest in cakes specifically however, started when I was 17. My mum was completing a cake decorating course and I was instantly intrigued for her to pass on her knowledge to me.
I began to experiment with fondant and sugar flowers and I fell in love. As it was, life, career and family became my focus and cakes took a back seat for the time being. Over the years, I had collected a plethora of inspiration, ideas and designs so that when the time came around many years later, I was itching to get back in the kitchen and reignite that yearning for creation. I lived for cakes — I would dream about them every night!
Hence, Enchanted Cakes By Yvette was born and I am forever grateful for the joy it provides me as well as my clients. I have been fortunate enough to have had my skills develop not only through the experience of running my business, but also through undergoing training with leading cake designers in the industry.
We are still driven by that same curious passion and imagination of that 17 year old girl with her sugar flowers. The desire to create something magical for our customers and put a smile on their faces is rooted in our philosophy.
Cake = Happiness, and you really can’t be unhappy whilst eating a good slice of cake!
Thank you to those who have been with me from the beginning and to all those who have joined me along the way, welcome to the family.
With sweetness and much love,
