Getting to know Pamela McCaffrey

Thursday, May 6

Having trained in costume and design at Central Saint Martins University of the Arts, Pamela has always been involved in art and creativity in one form or another, from drawing and painting through to fashion and interior design.

Like many people, her first decorated cakes were for family celebrations for her son and late husband. After that, however, it was many years before she made a return to cake decorating with a birthday cake for a friend, which soon led to cakes for work colleagues and beyond. After posting some of her cakes online she began to get more and more requests. Despite being a completely self-taught cake designer she was soon asked by Fair Cake in London if she would be interested in teaching there, which she did as a guest tutor for five years.

Pamela loves to explore a mixture of mediums and textures, from delicate sugar flowers to rough wafer paper effects
