My name is Stella.   I am a Business Intelligence Analyst in the day time, a budding crime novelist, total foodie and a cake artist.

I love to reach out to people and am sometimes known to talk too much when I meet new friends! I have made friends all over the world and have room for more. I believe that as human beings we are made to love and nurture one another.

I have written two unpublished crime novels with one that was recently shortlisted for a literary prize so watch this space!

I have been baking since the age of 13.

I stumbled into cake decorating a few years ago when after another frustrated attempt at re-writing my manuscript I asked a friend to show me how to cover my tasty cakes. My friend told me to tag along to our local community college where they taught sugar flowers and I fell in love.

I acquired qualifications from various colleges included  an advanced piping qualification from Brooklands College, Surrey.

Stella Ahmadou, Cake Artist

Cake decorating for me is an art and gives me the instant gratification that writing a long manuscript doesn’t. I had always seen myself as a writer not an artist so it was hard to accept that I could ever be good at it. I am slowly realising that I could be good but still have some way to go (I never imagine you can ever stop learning and there are some fantastic artists out there)!

I created MyCakeresort because I feel that there can never be enough cake blogs as each blogger have their own personal take on things. Mine is to showcase great cakes, assist beginners, share cake-related events and news all around the world, take great photographs, and make more friends along the way. I try to attend as many cake exhibitions as possible in the UK. I am now extending that to outside of the UK and hope to attend other exhibitions in other parts of the world and share this. I love wedding shows and will also highlight the really interesting ones. I like to update the news part of the website as much as I can.  If you are interested in contributing articles or pictures please send us an email
