About Me

I’ve been passionate about cake for as long as I can remember; going back to baking with my mum when I was young. Only in my 20s did I start to develop a passion for decorating cakes too and I began making more and more elaborate cakes for family and friends.

After my son was born, I continued my fundraising career but it didn’t hold the same appeal as before, and my family took precedence. Wanting more time with my son before he grows up helped me make a decision in 2017 to take a leap of faith and set up Sparkles and Swirls.

As business has grown over the years, I’ve become more passionate about working in the wedding industry; helping couples bring their vision to life and ensuring the cake is the centrepiece of the day. 

And I still find time to spend time in the kitchen with my son!


I am a fully registered home baking business, with a five star hygiene rating from Croydon Council so you can book with confidence. I have a Level 2 Food and Hygiene Certificate and public liability insurance.

I am also delighted to have been featured in the following online blogs, where you can find so much incredible inspiration for your own special day.
