My story began baking with my Mum, making cakes for my family.
I used to love our traditional German
“Kaffee und Kuchen” in the afternoons, and the amazing variety of cakes and colours deepened my desire to bake.
I always loved arts and crafts and using this creativity in baking was a perfect fit and gave me the opportunity to mix precision and imagination to create delightful cakes.
I started a career in hospitality and followed my dream of learning English and moved to England in 2005. My experiences working Front of House in Michelin starred and other high-end restaurants gave me the opportunity to learn about desserts, cakes and patisserie.
A few years ago, I began baking and decorating celebration cakes for friends and quickly honed new skills and techniques to bring my designs to life. I found I really enjoyed the whole process of planning and designing, to icing, decorating and completing the cake for someone’s special day.
In time with a lot of encouragement from my patient husband
and wonderful family and friends
“Cake Stories by Claudia”
Why the name, “Cake Stories”?
I believe every cake has a story and I am truly humbled to be able to tell someone’s special story through my cakes.
