I have been repeatedly asked what my favourite part of the trip was, and although there were many highlights, I benefited the most having high tea at the Langham with Mich Turner.
Mich was an inspiration. She talked us through her life, inspirations and achievements; wowed us with stories of creating cakes for Madonna, Pierce Brosnan, Pink and remarkably the Queen; and spoke of her highest achievement, receiving an MBE in The Queens Birthday Honours 2010.
I hope one day I will have such stories to tell to a group of aspiring cake decorators and aim to create cakes that are utterly bespoke and inspirational to others. I want my cakes to create an emotion in people such as Mich has created for me.
