I love finding out why people do what they do and hearing how they got there. I’m often meeting people, particularly women, who have made a big career change to follow their passion. Not many of us set out at 18 knowing exactly what we wanted to do, or were capable of doing, not that that’s a bad thing. The journey is part of life’s adventure and the ups and downs makes it all the more rewarding when you get there.
Caroline baked cakes with her Gran when she was little and since then baking has always been what she loves to do. So when the time was right she made the leap from a high-flying career at Leeds Uni to set up her own cake-making business, Caroline’s Cakes Chapel Allerton http://www.carolinescakesca.com/.
With Easter around the corner she’s been creating some beautiful cakes that I had the pleasure of photographing. I’m in awe of anyone who has the skill and patience to bake fine-looking and very tasty cakes as I’ve never got close to that level in the kitchen. Seeing her Easter range was a lovely reminder that there are delicious, traditional, homemade alternatives to mass-produced shop-bought Easter eggs.
