Art is my passion and I love bringing an artistic design sensibility to my cakes… but nothing is more important to me than offering a cake that tastes as good as it looks.
Scrumptious cakes were always a part of my life.
My mother worked very hard to raise four kids, but she managed to enjoy baking in her spare time. I guess you could say it was her “me time,” but she would have said it was just a hobby.
Nobody’s cake could beat my mother's cake recipes. The flavors and the texture were the height of childhood bliss for me. She showed me how making celebration cakes for the family was a special expression of love that is never forgotten.
After she retired, she learned how to make flowers out of what’s called gum paste or flower paste (sort of like a thicker fondant). And with that, she started making celebration cakes for the whole family. My daughter, Yasmine, spent many childhood hours making cakes with her Grandma.
When I was 18, my mother gave me her book of recipes, and this is truly one of the greatest gifts of my life.
I used her recipes to make those cupcakes that sold out every week at the London market. Today, these recipes are the foundation for every cake we make at Rosalind Miller Cakes.
