However, having chatted to Claudia Newberry at Purple Flour we're delighted to report that the answer, without compromise is, "Yes!"

EriCakes is a new company based in Medway
Medway-based Erica Dunn started as a hobby baker 11 years ago after a cake made for her son's birthday was not at all what she was expecting. "It looked terrible and tasted awful, so I had a go myself and became hooked," she tells us. Since then she's made hundreds of celebration cakes, big-day bakes and cupcakes for friends and family, with people regularly exclaiming: "You're so talented," and, "Your cakes are fantastic to look at and taste amazing too!" So it was, in October 2021 that she decided to take her hobby to the next level and her registered business EriCakes was born.

Beachy bakes: Cakes By The Sea is a creative cake studio in Broadstairs
Cakes By The Sea is a creative cake studio based on the Kent coast, in Broadstairs. The company is the culmination of owner Julie's dream to move to the seaside for a new career outside of her corporate finance background. She recently put together a styled shoot to showcase her passion for her bakes as well as her location and we're loving the results. Julie tells us, "I love our beautiful coastline and wanted to produce a shoot that showcased a gorgeous four-tier wedding cake, which blended into its surroundings. I love sage green too and so I reflected this in the decoration and chose a bottom marbled tier with highlights in the dried-flowers. The green works beautifully against the colour of the seaweed on the rocks."
