Confectionery and Training is a small business based in Newbridge, South Wales.
I have been interested in food and cake making from an early age and used to cook with my nan. I went to cookery college then worked in industrial catering, hotels, restaurants and bakeries to gain experience in the industry. During this time I went back to college part time to obtain my C&G in Design & Decoration of Flour Confectionery Certificate. I worked from home for a short time making Wedding & Celebration Cakes but scaled it down due to family commitments.
During this time I decided I would like to pass on my skills and teach so I went back to college again and obtained my PGCE and Advanced Food Hygiene Certificates whilst bringing up my family.
I have been a catering, food hygiene and sugar craft lecturer for the last 15 years teaching in both adult and further education.
At the back of my mind I felt I wanted to work for myself again so here I am doing what I love, delivering Adult & Children's sugar craft courses, food hygiene courses, designing wedding & celebration cakes and making confectionery goods.
