Cake Empire was founded by Pastry chef and Cake Designer Heather Cutenar. From childhood, Heather fostered a love for baking which was first sparked by helping her grandmother in the family kitchen. She pursued a career in the culinary arts, studying patisserie and confectionery at Westminster Kingsway College and went on to work for several award winning restaurants and bakeries.
Heather discovered she had a real passion and talent for designing and creating custom celebration cakes and decided to specialise in this field. During her time working as a cake decorator for Hummingbird Bakery, Heather continued to sharpen her skills whilst training at Squires Kitchen International School, the leading independent school of cake decorating in the UK. After working closely with the Cakings company for two years designing and baking cakes for clients, learning the tricks of the trade and developing her signature style of cake decoration, Heather decided to branch out and start her own business venture – Cake Empire!
