Hi, I'm Cathlene
It took me 40 years to work out what I want to be when I grow up and now I want to do this for ever!
I grew up in Brisbane, Australia, where I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease as a baby. I have been baking gluten-free cakes and treats for myself and my family since I was a young girl.
I now live in Mountsorrel with my husband and our two beautiful daughters.
Over the years I have worn many hats - administrator, taxi driver, PA, chalet host, event co-ordinator, and desktop publisher.
My path to becoming a wedding cake designer started with cupcakes. Selling cakes at local fairs and markets reignited my love of baking for other people and seeing their reaction when they realised that the the cake they had just enjoyed was gluten-free.
After making a wedding cake for some friends, I realised that wedding cake designer is what I want to be when I grow up.
Making a beautiful and delicious gluten-free wedding cake that tastes no different to 'normal' cake and ticks all the boxes on your wedding wish list, makes me so glad I finally found my dream job.
