I was delighted to be part of the Small Business Exhibition held at Trinity Park Ipswich.
I was even more delighted that from over 135 stands, mine was awarded 'Best Stand - Runner Up!
Truly - the 'Icing on the Cake'! (Sorry!)
I was delighted to be asked to support 'The Cystic Fibrosis Trust' at a Wedding Fayre with a difference and held at The Farmers' Club in Bury St Edmunds on the evening of 8 March.
The theme of the evening was the 1957 classic and romantic movie ‘An Affair To Remember’ with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.
My task? To create a cake in the style of the Empire State Building! You'll know why if you have seen the film!
It was a metre high - I hope you like it!
Having won 'Best Newcomer' in 2010 , at the Ipswich, and Suffolk Small Business Association Annual Exhibition, I was delighted to be awarded 'Best Stand' at this year's Show, in 2011!
Over 100 businesses took part in the Show and I received many compliments about my cakes!
Roll on next year!
The Provincial Grand Charity Steward of the Suffolk Freemasons knew what was needed to ensure a presentation with a difference - an Amazing Cake by Jean!
The East Anglian Air Ambulance said: "The Suffolk Province of Freemasons has boosted the East Anglian Air Ambulance's 10th anniversary celebrations with a grant of £4000. Provincial Grand Master Barry Ross took the opportunity of visiting the aircraft's base at Norwich Airport to present not only the cheque but also a spectacular 10th birthday cake to staff and paramedics working at the charity."
I was honoured to be asked to add an extra dimension to the presentation and my model of the helicopter complete with graphics apparently went down a storm! Sadly, both the Provincial Grand Master and the Provincial Grand Charity Steward missed out on the tasting as the crew were called off for an emergency!
I was delighted to be commissioned by a local Public Relations business to create a cake for the heart of a traditional cake cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of the Suffolk Leadership Academy at University Campus Suffolk.
Pictured above are the Project Supervisor, the Chief Executive of NHS Suffolk, the Director of Leadership with the Department of Health, the Director of Research and Enterprise at University College Suffolk and the Project Director at the launch.
The Academy was established through a partnership between eight of the region's NHS organisations with University Campus Suffolk, using £1.5 million in funding from NHS East of Englland.
The cake was designed to incorporate the classically striking logo and to give impact to the event - I sincerely hope that it succeeded!
I was honoured to be awarded the 'Newcomer of the Year' prize at the annual exhibition of the Ipswich and Suffolk Small Business Association held at Trinity Park, Ipswich in April.
This prestigous event attracted in the region of 2,000 visitors with almost double the number of stands since last year and, for the first time, was held in conjunction with the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce.
As ever, my aim was to make my stand both attractive and interesting and I am delighted that the judges were impressed not only with my stand but, of course, with my cakes!
Elmswell is the village in which I both live and work. When, after so much work by so many, we won the coveted 'Suffolk Village of the Year' award, I was delighted to be able to create a giant cake proudly displaying the village sign.
Mark Murphy and Lesley Dolphin of Radio Suffolk are here seen performing the honours by cutting my cake which went on to feed 300 celebrating villagers!
Well done Elmswell!
