Meet the team

  • Loraine

    Owner

    I'm Loraine, owner of Devoted To Cakes. I fell in love with baking when I was 6 years old and haven't stopped baking since. I love using my skills to push the boundaries of baking and cake decorating and have been lucky enough to be involved in worldwide collaborations of cake designers and have been published in numerous publications at home and abroad. Through "Devoted to Cakes" I share my skills by providing creative baking and decorating workshops, parties and events.
