LET's WORK TOGETHER

HELLO, I'm AMBER (AKA COMMIE)

Whilst working as a graphic designer in 2013, I was searching for another creative outlet. I stumbled upon the TV show, The Great Australian Bake Off, just as its cupcake episode aired. From then on, I was instantly, hooked. You could say, it's now become an obsession!

Since then, I've been recognised as a Cake Masters Magazine and ACDN Cake Decorating & Baking Industry Awards finalist, and I want to share my knowledge and empower cake decorators to gain confidence in their work and level-up their cake design skills.
