Laura Dodimead Cake Artist
My name is Laura Dodimead and I am an experienced AWARD WINNING Cake Artist , Baker & Tutor. With a creative past of interior design, upholstery and window dressing I was always looking for my next creative challenge. My hobby of baking fast became my full focus and a way of out laying my artistic flair alongside being a full time mother of two daughters.
I challenge myself daily with new and unusual cake designs using unique and exciting techniques for magazines and books. I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to get my work published in many magazines all around the world. Some include Cakes & Sugarcraft, Cake Masters, Cake International, Cake Geek, Brilliant Baking, American Cake Decoration, Australian Cake Decoration, Cake Decorating Heaven, Prima Makes, Country Homes & Interiors & Mollie Makes amongst others.
My passion for modelling, airbrushing and painting continues to grow and I have worked as a tutor for Squires Kitchen and The Cake Makery. I have filmed tutorials for Paul Bradford and also been a guest demonstrator on the Craft Channel on Rosie’s Crafty Kitchen in 2016. I love that I get to share my skills with others. I was extremely chuffed to be crowned Kirsty Allsop’s cake champion on channel 4 in 2015 and I also won GOLD at Cake International in 2016 for my decorative exhibit of the BFG.
Having traded as Cakey Bakes Cakes for many years baking and supplying cakes and bakes for local cafe’s, coffee shops and tea rooms around surrey as well as offering a bespoke celebration cake and wedding cake service, I felt it was time to rebrand and give my website a new and fresh direction by starting my own cake decorating workshops for adults as well running cake decorating for kids classes.
Although my main passion is cakes, I enjoy so many other crafts and hope to expand “Life in Sugar” by teaching and hosting other craft workshops in the future.
I AM FULLY CRB/DBS CHEACKED AND HOLD A CURRENT FIRST AID TRAINED CIRTIFICATE .
