TICKLS CELEBRATION CAKES

The icing on the cake for your celebrations!


ABOUT US

Since my very early years I was fascinated with the culinary arts and the kitchen was always a happy place for me. Eventually with a few culinary degrees up my sleeve with specialisation in pastry, I made my way to some of the leading hotels in the world including the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.


Once I had my most amazing two daughters, I decided to take bow from the demands of a pastry chef career and take on a full time role as a mum. However, when the girls started schooling, the old flame was rekindled. It is not often that one can have the best of both worlds but I was very fortunate to still be there for the girls and also set up my business from home.


I love the many beautiful friendships that have birthed through this business and the look on the celebrants’ faces when they see their cakes! Every single cake is unique to me as I like to personalise them for each individual. I am truly very blessed and most grateful to God for giving me the ability to do what I love doing.
