“I love baking, my skills were OK and I am always trying to improve. More than anything it was a confidence thing and I think that stems from having self taught a lot of stuff.
After a class with Mai, I feel more confidence, especially when it comes to certain skills. Drippy cakes don’t scare me now, I feel pretty confident with them, thanks to Mai.”
I really enjoyed my baking tutorial with Mai, she has a very soothing personality that allows you to feel im media tly relaxed.
I felt confident mixing, and baking and had lots of praise which boos ted my confidence with my creativity.
The biggest positive point for me was it’s OK if you make a mistake with the buttercream you can wipe it off and start again…don’t be afraid. I’ve had lots of co mplimen ts from friends with the end result.

My cake journey wasn’t so silky smooth and sweet…
After watching countless episodes of Ace of Cakes and Glamour Puds, I was inspired and ready to take on the cake world. My husband and I opened our deli called The Big Bagel where I baked all sorts of cakes to sell, from cupcakes, cookies and brownies to our famous Oreo cheesecake. It was awesome!
I was doing this alongside my full time job and after a few months, I had to stop baking and work away from home. I was devas ta ted.
Fast forward a few years, I decided I wanted to make my own wedding cake. I loved making cakes for friends and family where I would selfishly volunteer to make their birthday cake just so I had an excuse to practice and experiment.
Despite several years of experience baking and cake decorating, making my own wedding cake
was taking it to a whole new leve l.
I spent countless days and hours searching on Google, reading blogs, being part of Facebook groups and going down the rabbit hole of “how to” YouTube videos because I didn’t have anyone I really knew who I could ask for help and guidance.
All of the techniques that I wanted to learn were “ top secre t” and the tutorials I found weren’t quite the style I was after. Even if I found a blog of what I wanted to achieve, a lot of important information was missing, meaning I’d spend more time researching.
Because my confidence was low, I practised at every opportunity I had to hone in on my skills and to discover the best techniques to make my wedding cake. This meant lots of mistakes but also successes and extra money spent having to do it again or from ordering too much!
When it came to the big day, I’ll never forget the compliments I had of my cake as it made me feel that all of the money, time and effort I put into it was wo r th i t. My confidence grew and after the wedding, I was ready to explore and continue practising so that I could become even better.
This made me realise that, like any skill, confidence grows from being competent…you just have to start, invest, fail, get back up again and repeat as that’s what makes you an expert.
As a result, my brother asked me to make his wedding cake which led me to starting M Bakery where I’ve been honoured to make several wedding and special occasion cakes, dessert and sweet treats.
Now, I want to share my knowledge and skills with you to create everlasting memories with cake.
