Hi, I'm Violet, currently a full-time stay-at-home mom of two and part-time cake designer/decorator!
I first discovered my love for cake art in early 2008 when researching how to make a cake for my husband's milestone birthday. I consider myself "internet or community taught" having found and learned as much as I could from the many helpful sites, blogs, YouTube videos, tutorials around the net, where people were willing to share their craft. I used every family occasion to practice after that and soon, friends and family were asking me to make their cakes and have been busy creating cakes part-time ever since.
Recently I took an extended break after the birth of my daughter, to spend time more quality time with the kids. I now spend my time creating one-of-kind pieces for special projects and personal occasions, taking the odd order here and there for friends and family and their referrals.
I currently maintain a popular Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheVioletCakeShop) and have Twitter (@TVioletCakeShop), Instagram (@thevioletcakeshop) & Pinterest (The Violet Cake Shop) accounts as well as a blog (www.thevioletcakeshop.wordpress.com) where I share my insights, tips and free tutorials and other new creations. I have had the honour of being part of several special Facebook cake community collaborations, with more to come. My cakes have been featured in print in Edible Artist Network Magazine, American Cake Decorating Magazine, Cake Central Magazine, UK's Cake Masters Magazine, UK's Party Cakes Magazine, UK's Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers Magazine and in Australia's Sweet Magazine as well as many on-line magazines such as The Cake of the Week, Cake Geek Magazine, Australian Cake Decorating Network Magazine, Pretty Witty Cakes and Sunday Sweets.
Attention-grabbing, buzz-worthy custom cakes are our specialty!
Thanks and enjoy your visit!
