About Me


I’ve been a part of the cake decorating and sugarcraft world since the age of 14. I saw a lady demonstrating how to make an orchid in sugar and was amazed by how one small piece of paste could turn into something so realistic and that it was possible to create something so beautiful out of sugar. It looked amazing! Now nearly 30 years’ on I have evolved my business and love travel the world so I can share my love of cake crafting to all of you. When I was 15 I was lucky to be granted every Friday off school so I could go to Stratford upon Avon College to complete my city & guilds qualifications in sugarcraft. As I am dyslectic words don’t come easy to me and found that sugarcraft came naturally to me.

I have been a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild since 1990, becoming an Accredited Demonstrator and Assessor since 2005. Serving as a regional rep and then on national committee for several years.

I have entered many competitions over the years as well as building my business. They have been all over IMG_6275the UK and I have been working my way up to winning several gold medals and best in show awards which I believe have helped me with my knowledge in Sugarcraft. I can normally be found at the main big cake decorating shows that are all around the world including the cake international at the N.E.C in Birmingham every November. Now I am pleased to say that I am a professional judge and have been since 2012 at cake international.

I became a Fan of airbrushing after seeing Pam Wakefield demonstrate How do airbrush. I was hooked! In 2010 shesto and I jointly started the brand of airbrushing Cassie Brown Cake Craft and sold airbrushes worldwide.  We jointly developed the Cassie Brown Cake Craft range, In 2017 we parted company so that I could focus on different projects and I can not wait to share my new ideas with you.Cassie Brown
