Some truly gorgeous cakes to show you from a recent find of mine – Sherie who is The Flour Girl in Brisbane! Her cakes are simply beautiful and when I asked her about her love of cake decorating and her business this is what she told me.
How long ago did you find your passion for creating beautiful cakes?
About 8 years ago I worked fro a family owned business that produced Vanilla Extract and flavours etc, I was actually in an accounts/admin role but quite often I would alter recipes I liked to include the Queen branded flavourings and then i’d bake it and one of the son’s who worked there would photograph the cakes for the recipes section of their website.
It wasn’t long after that I made my first ever sculpted cake using fondant for my best friend’s baby shower, it was a pregnant belly cake, from there I got the bug and it just grew into an obsession, I got better & better and decided to launch my business the The Flour Girl, it wasn’t long before I had to make a decision to keep it small or leave my day job and see where it took me, so that’s exactly what I did, I quit my job and now I run the flour girl full time, it’s like a dream come true!
How long have you had your business?
I’ve now had The Flour Girl for around 2 years and everyday I wake up with a smile on my face because I know what the day has install for me.
What is the most popular flavour of cake from your customers?
My most popular flavour by far is Pineapple & Coconut with Coconut Buttercream layers, its scrumptious!
